Myanmar: Mandalay Hill and the World’s Biggest Book(video)


Watch: 13 Mandalay Hill and the World’s Biggest Book, Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma)

We walked to the top of Mandalay Hill Pagoda. The heat as well as the number of steps shocked me. I guess that is why they kept offering us transport!

After we survived the 104degree heat we walked into the World’s Largest Book, more than 700 stone slabs are inscribed with Buddhist teachings. When I first read about the largest book in the Lonely Planet, I wasn’t sure I even wanted to go. I am so glad I did. It is incredible! Walking in a book was the highlight of my day! Thanks to Anke and Moritz for being great travel companions!  October 2, 2012

This movie is from our 28 days in Myanmar (Burma) from September 28, 2012 to October 26, 2012 and our year TRIP in South East Asia, see all the videos from our trip.
