Kalaw Sunsets

02 December 2019. #

Last year December, I set off to Kalaw, Myanmar on a solo trip. I didn’t plan it. I booked the flight during the night before the trip itself. (Thanks Jiali). I also managed to book the tour for the trekking trip for three days two nights. I asked the tour guide for the recommendation for a night stay in Kalaw. Talk about last-minute planning.

The next day morning, I was off to the airport to find out that I booked the wrong flight. Instead of booking Yangon to Heho flight, I bought the Heho-Yangon flight. I thought to myself “What a start!”. I managed to get the evening flight and I was off to Kalaw.

It turns out the evening flight was a great choice. I managed to see the beautiful, beautiful sunset of the Shan state.

The taxi driver noticed that I was taking photos along the way. He told me “You seem to like taking pictures and let’s take a short stop in front”. So, we stopped for a few minutes on the giant highway. The view from there was mesmerizing. My photos don’t do justice. You have to be there to experience the view and the weather.

I arrive at the hotel. The hotel was small. The room was decent. Then I was off to dinner at the famous Thirigayha 7 Sisters Restaurant.

The weather was chilly. The walk back to the hotel was lovely. The air was fresh. I was very happy.
