We went on a day out on the back of a motorcycle. It was a wonderful day because the motorcycle guys made a great itinerary together with us. They took us to the highlights like Mahamnuni Paya, and Ubein bridge, but also to places hardly visited. Everybody goes to a monastry to see the monks gettings their alms, the 'Mahaganayon Kyaung', where it is crowded with people.We went to a similar monastry but we were the only foreigners! We were even invited to have dinner with the monks there! There was a line-up of many, many monks, and the fact that we were the only foreign people had made this very special. The name of the guide is Hla Myo

He is a trishaw and motorbike driver, but also a perfect guide, and a real nice person. He speaks english very well, and can arrange also transport by car, if you want to.
The reason that I promote him on Tripadvisor is that the day trip on the back of the motorbike was one of the highlights of our trip to Myanmar. I want to share this experience with other people, and hope that they will choose Hla Myo as well! You won't regret it, believe me!
He has a brother and friends that also drive motorbikes, we were with 3 , me, my husband and my 15 year old son, and Hla Myo came up with some friends.
If you give it a go, and you'll get in touch with Hla Myo, give him my very warm greetings from his friends from Holland!
