20100208 : Road to Akyab


It is old name of capital of Arakan state (now Rakhine State), now known as Sittwe. It was more than a decade that I haven't been there. On February 2010, I reached back to there. Akyab is still same conditions like a decade ago. Here are a few photos I have taken in Akyab.

Let start from Mingalardon airport, here we have one of MAI planes used for international airway travel, I thought it should be Airbus A310.


But, the plane I took from Rangoon to Akyab was not that one, it was just a Fokker F27 with engines with propellers. I was lucky on that day because I could take Myanmar Airways Domestic, and ticket fare was 50K from Rangoon to Akyab. The below one was meal provided on Myanmar Airways on plane.

Here we go, I have touched down crescent land.

Akyab was still same appearance like a decade ago as I mentioned before, I could feel sea breeze that came from nearby Bay of Bengal. The roof of the airport building was undergoing renovation, so that you could see that some of the roofing plate were not there.

Moat (entrance) to Lawkananda Pagoda, it was taken from the vehicle that I took from airport to downtown. Sorry for that I couldn't take photo of pagoda itself.

After reaching to Mya Guest House, I hired a motorbike and went down to Akyab Jetty to fetch one of my relatives. After that, we went back to Mya and went to Point. Unfortunately, the time we reached there, the sun went down to the sea already. But, I still took some photos. This is one of the photos I took there.
