Our opinion: This village stay gives a true insight into Myanmar’s peaceful country life and makes for a real experience for those wanting to see more of village life. The rooms are very comfortable, well-lit and spacious despite being in a remote area and the Burmese food extremely tasty despite a simple restaurant. Apart from pottery the villagers live from farming and fishing in the Ayeyarwady River and the area is home for around 4.000 Water buffalos. TV and telephone are not available in the rooms. Internet is not available in the whole hotel.
