In Mawlamyine

151031-021-edited

I’m a big fan of sleepy, gently crumbling riverside towns in south-east Asia. Kompong Cham and Kratie in Cambodia, Savannakhet in Laos – these are some of the places that I’ve most enjoyed visiting over the last few years. To that list, I can now add Mawlamyine in south-eastern Myanmar. It’s not a place with any really jaw-dropping sights – the town itself is the attraction, with its weathered colonial-era buildings, its pagodas, mosques and churches, its dockside market and its friendly, curious people.

A quick shot from Mawlamyine in southern Myanmar. I spent four weeks travelling around the country in October and November, taking a ton of pictures which I am just now starting to sort through. So there’ll be more – quite a lot more – soon.
