Arrival in Yangon / by David Johnstone

An arduous journey over. Now enjoying the rooftop bar with a view

After two flights, delays, sleepless in Dubai for 9 hours overnight and an inordinately long queue to get through customs, I’ve finally arrived at my first destination, Yangon, Burma. The Esperado Hotel’s rooftop bar affords quite spectacular views over the lake and on to the stunning Shwedagon Pagoda. Well worth the hassle and the beer tastes good too. Merry Christmas everyone!
