I planned a stage in Taungoo only because I fell virtually in love with the Myanmar Beauty Guest House while browsing TripAdvisor several weeks before leaving, and I can only recommend you do the same!

I arrived in the middle of the night without booking, and the guys were so kind! They got up to welcome me and help with my backpack and even offered me some food and a cup of delicious herbal tea.

I was given a beautiful room on the second floor with a huge teak veranda, four-poster bed, traditional furniture and accessories, beautiful view of the countryside and hot water… simply perfect! 

The following morning I got up in front of an amazing natural landscape: rice fields, palm trees, and bright light. Arriving in the kitchen, I found a super friendly atmosphere and was served an impressive breakfast (!!!) in the veranda on the ground floor.

I had breakfast with “Luis Mariano,” one of the guys who had welcomed me during the night, with whom I chatted at length about sports, local culture, fruit, crafts, and even a bit of current policy. I felt at home 🙂

I spent my first day there reading, playing cards, and relaxing on the beautiful porch while enjoying the excellent ginger infusion that I discovered has miraculous powers! 

If you get here, do cross the fields in front of the porch to reach the farming village along the river, and in the shade of tall palm trees, you’ll b offered the local palm beer, the so-called called “sky wine”! An experience one shouldn’t miss…

They don’t have a website, and the e-mail address I had is no longer active, but if you stop in Taungoo, I heartily recommend you stay here 🙂

Personal Note

Thanks to my previous job and often for pleasure, I spent almost more time in hotels than at home in the last seventeen years. Here are those I consider special places not to be missed. Those I truly hope to come back to again and again…

These posts have nothing to do with sponsorships.

These are just places where I stayed and that I loved and felt like have to be recommended to everybody.
