New Year New Me

I will attend my 4th wedding in Cambodia as Mr. Sok one of the chefs at the pepper farm is about to get married in March.

It will be a very happy occasion for all and it will finish off a complete story of Cambodia, one which I will remember forever.

Having been travelling for over 15 months now I am entering my third actual dated year of travel. It feels a good time to leave so I can discover new things.

I left the UK in Sept 2018 and spent most of 2019 living in Cambodia. This year it will be the turn of Vietnam and Laos with maybe a finish in Myanmar.

Possibly a visit back to the UK to see friends and maybe a few places in Europe on the way back to wherever I end up.

LOVE IT 😀

Yangon, Myanmar

Yangon has got it all

The city seems to have something unique, I only spent a few days exploring but already hooked on the place.

It has one of the most impressive Pagodas in the world.

I was mesmerized by the Shwedagon Pagoda when you walk around.

The food in Yangon has to be some of the most flavorsome I have tried ever in the whole of southeast Asia.

Smells of local street food certainly rival Bangkok in terms of variety and colours look vibrant. Choice of meals to satisfy even the most worldly traveller.

 

A nightlife that may rival Singapore as like SG there are many western ex-pats camped in Yangon. It is fast becoming the new place to work in Asia.

Especially, as  Myanmar opens up to the west and tries to repair the damage done by the Rohinga crisis.

Local places of interest such as the @ygnwalls, local art museums and little boutique shops offering gifts to satisfy any hardened shopper.

Definitely a return visit and also to experience many more of the places in Myanmar.

Everyone says each state has unique places to visit and tastes of food will vary between places giving me such a wide range of choices it may be a country that keeps me here a while.
