When in Myanmar: If you are visiting in the later months of November and December, the sunsets are earlier, starting from around 5.15pm. After arriving in Yangon at about noon, we took a 2-hr domestic flight up north to the town of Lashio in Shan province. We then travelled further north by coach where the region lies on the outskirts of a mountainous range. Half an hour in, at the farm beside an acquaintance’s roadside shop and eatery, we observed our first Myanmar sunset which had beautiful golden orange hues that lit up a cloudy blue sky as the sun set behind the tallest mountain peak. We could have stand there for another hour in the midst of planted crops admiring the view but when it gets dark, it gets really dark, so we quickly carried on with our journey, hoping to see more of God’s handiwork in the Land of the Golden Pagodas…
