Most tourists visit Bago by a daytrip fromYangon.There are many interesting places to see. The choice of accommodation is very poor. But it is worth to stay a few days.In the afternoon when the day tourists are gone there are nearly no forreigners. I have seen in 4 days maximum 10 in the afternoon and evening.
The intersting places are wide spread and you need a driver or a bicycle
My workshop photo shows the feet of the statue.
Mya Tha Lyaung Buddha (built 2001 on a possible 15th-century site)
The Mya Tha Lyaung reclining Buddha is located at the junction of the road leading to and from the Kalyani Ordination Hall and the Shwethalyaung Reclining Buddha. At 82 meters long, it is an enormous statue that currently stands open to the elements. Although it was completed in 2001, Stadtner notes that it was built upon a brick mound which may date to Dhammazedi's late 15th-century reign, as evidenced by 'demon tiles' found in the rubble.
Reclining Buddha images represent the final phase of the historical Buddha's life on earth before entering parinirvana, when he suffered from illness after eating spoiled food.
