During our 6 week stay in Myanmar’s Mawlamyine, eating proved to be a bit if a challenge. The non touristy nature of this town is what makes it amazing, but also makes it difficult to work out what to eat!
Nha Trang is a beautiful little Vietnamese seaside resort. We’ve seen many reports in recent times that a large increase in Russian tourists has driven the prices up out of reach out the standard backpacker.
Whilst it’s true that the restaurants were way too costly for our meagre budgets there are still some crazy cheap prices available, which saw us spend less here per day than elsewhere in Vietnam.
These days travellers are quite spoiled in that you can get pretty much anything pretty much anywhere. However, as Myanmar is still in its early stages of allowing tourism, there are some things that you should make sure you bring.
Are you thinking about spending some of those hard earned holiday days or precious backpacking days volunteering your time. Good for you!
Someone recently asked whether to call the country Myanmar or Burma. So here is my response in full.
