CATCH THE PYA ZAT BEFORE IT'S GONE
Pya zat, Myanmar's traditional drama, is on the verge of extinction due to the influence of foreign cultures. The modern form of pya zat emerged in the late British colonial period with films.
The shows that used to last three hours are now down to two and are performed mostly in rural areas.
From preaching morality, these shows now dwell on laughing away the stresses of daily life.
A BREATHTAKING CAVE IN AN AMAZING LANDSCAPE
The Saddan cave, one of the biggest in Myanmar, is dotted with several images of Buddha.
It takes about 20 minutes to cross the cave, if the bats do not deter you, and the exit opens into a lake, offering a view of a landscape that will enchant you.
