20100215 : Akyab

I had reached back to Akyab. Wandering around Akyab is not so easy. I need to rent a motorbike that cost 1000ks per hour and gasoline I need to fill in myself. But, if we don't mind the cost for that, motorbike is the most convenient way to go around Akyab.

Here we have two clock towers in Akyab, one is the old tower situated in the boundary of No.1 Police Station on Lann Ma Gri Road. The other one is quite new one built in 1991 on the Lann Ma Gri also.

One of the most distinct place at the centre of town is U Ottama Park. U Ottama statue is at the middle of the park.
U Ottama was not only famous in Burma, but also all over the Asia. Craddock, Get Out! is one of most famous words of U Ottama. Imagine who dare to give such brave speeches to the governor at the colonial time.  U Ottama was sentenced long term jail because of such kind of brave speeches. He was also known as light of Asia. Biography of U Ottama, you can download over here.

I have visited Akyab Bazaar too.

The time I reached there was about 9:00 am. The front street of the bazaar was still crowded as usual.

The three-wheelers are playing important roles of transportation of Akyab.

Transport @ Akyab

It was labeled "Product of Tharkayta Industrial Zone, don't know how they produced? In the past, some of the so-called local products of industrial zones doesn't mean produced fully there. It should be better to say "assembled in so-and-so industrial zone".

I had reached back to airport of Akyab already. It was quite silent and I saw a few passengers only. It was Air Bagan we were going to take. Mostly passengers were foreigners and ticket's price also 30K more than normal domestic airline. But, there was only one trip of Air Bagan from Yangon to Akyab.

The airport building was undergoing renovation as I mentioned over here, so now you could notice that the roof of the building was completed renovation works already.

The plane was waiting down there for us to bring back to Rangoon.


Now I had to say "Bye Bye Crescent Land" again. Like what I said before, I really do not know when I will be back again.

  5. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is

    required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I'm not very

    internet savvy so I'm not 100% certain.

  6. Thank you for every other informative web site. Where else could I am getting that
    kind of information written in such a

    perfect manner? I have a mission that

    I'm simply now running on, and I've been on the look out for

    such information.

  7. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure
    of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content

    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an
    awful lot of text for only having one or two

    pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
