While we were in Myanmar we were recommended to go to Pyin Oo Lwin which lies to the north of Mandalay. En route our driver stopped off at Pelk Chin Myaung holy cave complex. The extensive cave system is home to hundreds of Buddha statues but part of the attraction for the locals is the spring which rises inside the cave and then flows over the rocks outside providing endless photo opportunities of people getting wet or just enjoying a paddle.

The day trip to Pyin Oo Lwin, recommended to us by a couple we’d met in Bagan and then met again on Lake Inle, was the best trip we took. At this cave complex there were very few other tourists and everyone said hello to us, asked us to take their photo or asked if they could have their photo taken with us! Obviously a fair number of them had never seen a European before and the photo opportunity was too good to miss. We were always happy to oblige and no one objected if I asked to take their photo.
