362--Myanmar: Monks at Ngwe Saung Beach
@ CherieSpotting     Jul 21 2006 - 14:45 PST
Cherie writes: Ngwe Saung Beach is a 15-kilometer stretch of sand on the Bay of Bengal. It’s the home to hardworking fishermen and peaceful monks. During the day you are plagued with difficult choices such as: should I swim in the pool or the bay? Or should I meander into town in search of a snack?

Come view the photos of the colorful and cheerful people of Myanmar. The are traditional local restaurants in the village near the beach. It was here that we ate lunch and had a waiter assigned to fan us the entire time we ate. Only in Myanmar! Jean and I had an incredible time at the Sunny Paradise Resort.
