What to find in Dala?
Leaving Yangon in about 20 minutes and carry a tours in Dala for 2 – 3 hours in the afternoon is an excellent adjustment of the day. There are a lot of things recommended in this town:
bring a walk around Dala, there is a mix of harsh, dusty dirt roads and the piles of animal walking through streets to streets. This is the unusual thing which be able to not be found in hasty cities such as Yangon or Mandalay. You will realize chicken, goats and cows are freely crossing the street now and then. Spend some kyats (the local Burmese money) to take a trishaw ride and relax being a farmer. Trishaw is one of the most common means of transportation in here. Riding by trishaw, watching authentic rural life, looking at the young kid slowly pass-by is something that has been lost in the grand and modern countries. Go to the fresh fish market of the village and interact with the “local businessman” are also interesting and notable activities.
Belong to burma means there is no place that you cannot visit without a golden temple. Shwe Sayan Pagoda is a significant landmark of this town. All people that coming to this pagoda will pay their respect to the mummified monk in a glass cased for their tranquil life. The sacred Buddha has been taking care of the whole town for around 150 years and surely more to come. The legend has said 10 – 12 years ago, he has warned the villagers about a coming cyclone from Thailand.
