Lone Bed in Shwebo


There are some guest houses in Myanmar in which foreigners are not allowed to stay.  It was in Shwebo, about 2 hours north of Mandalay that I first encountered this phenomenon.   With only about 4 guest houses in the entire town, I was turned away from 2 others before I finally came to Shwe Phyu.  It soon became quite obvious that I was the only foreigner in this small town.

The guest house was nothing special but was still clean and comfortable enough.  And, it was conveniently located near the only restaurant in town I found with a semi-English menu.  Originally quoted $18, I was able to haggle the price down to $15.


Shwe Phyu Gust House Bed Cost:

  • Double Fan Room (Private Bathroom) 15000 kyat / US $15.00
