Asia, Burma

Chasing the sunset in Burma

We took so many photos of sunsets in Myanmar that we need a specific blog to show them. We have less photos of sunrises because we are too lazy to wake up early…

I don’t know why but there is something special with Burma’s skies. Every sunrise and sunset we have seen was just wow. 

U Bein Bridge

If you are in Mandalay don’t miss the stunning sunset at U Bein Bridge, a wooden bridge of over one kilometer situated in Amarapura, a former royal capital.


Views in Bagan are astonishing at any time of the day but watching the sun slowly fading behind temples and pagodas is the best. 

Sunrise can also be magic in Bagan with the fire balloons flying gently in the golden sky of the early morning…

Shwedagon Pagoda

Located on a hill, Shwedagon Pagoda overlooks majestically Yangon. The tonnes of gold-leaf covering the pagoda make the colors of sunset quite special…

Inle Lake

Where the water shines and the sky burns while fishermen catch unlucky fishes: this is Inle Lake. 

Ngapali Beach

Watching the red sun disappearing in the sea and making the sky burning is just breathtaking.


The view of the sun fading in the waters of Thanlwine River behind the bridge is absolutely beautiful. Better to be on a boat to enjoy it.

Bat Cave

Seeing thousands of bats flying out from the cave and creating huge black waves in the pink sky… it’s just incredible. The “Bat Cave” real name is Linno Gu and it’s located near Hpa-An. 

Merci Rosa pour la photo 🙂
