Pathein (Bassein)

PatheinThe town is charming and live is much slower than in bustling larger towns. Pathein is a little over 3 hours drive from Yangon. There are small workshops manufacturing monk umbrellas. The night market is very nice; vendors sell food, groceries and fruits. If you have a robust stomach, you can enjoy many different kinds of foods and deserts. Pathein is on your way if you go to either Ngwe Saung Beach or Chaung Tha Beach.
