I didn't know what to expect when I decided to visit the Po Win Daung caves, and I was glad I chose to come. Ms Khing Mar was my guide. She was a local, spoke very good English, and knew the caves very well. It's...More

We went to the caves of Monywa and took a Tuk Tuk driver for one day. We were very surprised to have a very smart driver who told us a lot during the way (approximately 1 hour, one way!) For example he showed us a...More

Hire a guide (if you are a Westerner, they will spot you pretty quickly.) The guides have a mediocre knowledge but will be beneficial in helping you navigate the site which is expansive. A guide for an hour is 5000 kyat.

There is a slightly annoying/money greedy woman who hails you down from her hut and asks you to pay an entrance fee of 2500. Not sure if this is legitimate or not. Our money is definitely not being invested into any signposts or clean up...More

This was just another breathtaking and stunning place which I did not expect at all. This really should be supported by the UNESCO. It is a huge cave area with 999 small caves with countless Buddha statues inside. I never saw something like this before....More
