.........Mrauk U, despite emailing with the owner of the guest house we intended to stay in and the last email assuring us that he was waitng for us in " peace and tranquil breath" we arrived and our room was not ready. In fact it looked as if it had never been ready or ever would be! Found another guest house close by that on the first night we were sharing with a spider so big that I thought he should have his own bed
It was a lovely place to stay, good food, clean and comfortable in a green garden, we gave our order either fish or prawn and the time we wanted to eat and each evenign we were treated to rice, three differnt kinds of veg and fish or prawn, all simply but tastily cooked. Behind our room was a small path that led us to a hill top stupa the highest point around with the most amazing dawn views!! Mrauk U is really remote and to say the vilages were a joy to vist is an understatement. We cycled the countryside visited temples, took boat-trips up the beautiful river to even more remote villages. We stayed six days, people got used to us. A really special place.
