  •   Fantastic week in Myanmar

    My wife and me travelled to Myanmar for one week and we visited to Yangon, Golden Rock and Bagan through the arrangement of Image Of Myanmar Travel. It was fantastic and memorable. Their advices for our trip are very useful and informative. The transportation arrangements, vehicles and drivers were all excellent and hotel in Bagan was amazing. Our guides in Bagan and Yangon were very friendly and informative. They did everything possible to ensure that we had a great time.
    Thank you for organizing everything so good and we would certainly recommend to anyone who planned to travel Myanmar in the future.

  •   Adventurous Trip

    The hotel we stay in is clean and the staff are nice. Convenient location as well.
    The driver we engaged in Yangon and Mandalay can speak English well, they are like half tour guide :)
    If you want to take night coach from Mandalay to Nyaung Shwee in Inle Lake please check with the bus company before purchase ticket as not all buses will go in Nyaung Shwee they might drop you half way and you have to arrange to go in by yourself.

  •   Three days in Yangon

    Had a nice trip to Myanmar summer 2016 together with my girlfriend. Htet in IOM made the stay to a real success, from the moment we got picked up from the airport, to the day we left Yangon. IOM helped us understand life in Myanmar, and was always eager to explain with great knowledge. We did not go for a tailor made program, but gave him the challenge of giving us the most authentic experience possible for two westerners. Saw Yangon both on foot, and by car. Got to see a lot of the city, included areas without tourists, and he joined us in his spare time when evening came to show us the nightlife. When we were alone in the city, Htet was always just a phone call away for tips, help or a ride. Thanks to Htet for making our three days in Yangon so memorable. Very recommended.

  •   Wonderful Trip with IOM

    Wonderful Trip with IOM

    We started to plan our trip to Myanmar just one month before the trip. Without advices and assistance from Hiet in Image of Myanmar (IOM), I have to say, we won’t have that wonderful and memorable trip in Myanmar. IOM provided a lot of information and helped arranged itinerary. Whenever we had questions to itinerary and sent him message to seek advice, Hiet could response very quickly and always give valuable and useful advices, he is very patient to explain for our each question. I like the itinerary he prepared for us to guide us going those interesting places and feel their local life in Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay and Inle Lake. Hiet offered us a local SIM card after we arrived, we could easily contact him for any help or tips during the our trip stay in Myanmar. Transportation were well arranged. All drivers he arranged for us are very nice and friendly, they were willing to share with us whatever are interesting to tourists along the way. We appreciate IOM for organizing the trip for us, everything are well arranged and we did enjoy the time in Myanmar. We would highly recommend IOM’s service to you. If I have chance to go, I will certainly choose IOM.

Religious of Myanmar

Do you know the religious of Myanmar? Myanmar is one of the countries which devotes in “Theravada Buddhism”. What is Theravada Buddhism?

Buddhism encompass the “Three Gems: the Buddha, the Dhamma and the Sangha.” It is not a religion in the strict sense of the word as it is not a system of faith worship. Each person must seek his own salvation, take responsibility for his own thoughts, words and deeds and not depend on a savior. Buddha only showed the way to one’s salvation and one is not expected to accept it blindly, for Buddha even advised his followers to examine his teachings, test them and accept them only when convinced of their veracity.
Buddhism has evolved into two schools: Theravada and Mahayana. The goal of the Theravada devotee is to seek his own salvation by study and understanding the canon, by practicing mindfulness meditation and through these endeavours to achieve the freedom of Nirvana (Enlightenment) so as not to be reborn into the cycle of life. Mahayana predominates mainly in North Asian countries.

The BUDDHA
The great teacher Buddha Gautama was born more than 2600 years ago as Siddhartha, an Indian prince of the Sakkya clan who lived a life of luxury until he was twenty-nine. He then became aware of the miseries of mankind and renounced his throne and family to set forth on his search for the Truth that would free mankind from suffering. After six years of meditation he found it and his principles, based on the discovery of how to lead a harmonious life, are collectively called Buddhism. He passed away at the age of eighty.

The DHAMMA
In Dhamma, the teachings of the Buddha, he stressed the need to eradicate the three roots of evil that are the causes of suffering: Lobha (greed, craving), Dosa (anger, hatred) and Moha (ignorance, delusion).
Morality is the basis of the Buddha’s teachings and the Eightfold Path also known as the Middle Way teaches adherents to avoid these three roots of evil and to live a moral life.
They are:
-          Right Understanding: having insightful knowledge of the Dhamma.
-          Right Thought: having thoughts that are free from lust, ill will and cruelty and thoughts of loving kindness, compassion, non-hatred and objectivity for all living beings.
-          Right Speech: abstaining from speaking false words, slander, rude, harsh and abusive language and idle, frivolous gossip.
-          Right Action: conduct that is moral, honourable and not harmful to others.
-          Right Livelihood: avoiding a living that is harmful to others.
-          Right Effort: to be diligent in the avoidance of evil by thought, word and deed.
-          Right Mindfulness: to be consciously aware of all the activities of mind and body.
-          Right Concentration: meditating to prevent violent emotions from arising.

The SANGHA
Members of the Sangha, or community of monks, study Buddha’s canon and spread his teachings and live according to 227 rules that include eating only food that is donated to them.
Monks are not required to be vegetarians, as the rule is to accept any food donated to them.

Myanmar MUSIC & DANCE

MUSIC

Traditional Myanmar music is played without notes. The orchestra leader plays the drums with his fingers while seated within the circular frame hung with 21 small drums. The gong circle is in a smaller, lower frame. There is the oboe as a wind instrument, and tiny cymbals and bamboo clappers keep the tempo. The biggest drum is hung from a golden, decorated frame topped with the mythical creature, the Pyinsa Rupa. Solo instruments are the xylophone with bamboo slats, and the elegantly curved and tasseled Myanmar harp.

DANCE

Myanmar choreography is series of movements gracefully flowing from one step to the other with slight pauses in between, when the pose is rigidly held for a few seconds. The pace can be fast or slow according to the type of dance. The criteria are that human should dance as if they were marionettes and marionettes, as if they were humans.

ZAT PERFORMANCE

Zat is the traditional Myanmar dance-drama led by a male dancer. A large number of pretty female dancers will make up the corps de ballet, dancing ducts in turn with the leading man. The repertoire includes a classical play, comic sketches, a musical interlude called AwpairRa (opera), and a modern play. The show ends at dawn.

ANYEINT PERFORMANCE

Anyeint is a dance troupe led by female dancer. The principal dancer comes on stage last after three or four of her protégés have taken their turn with their own style of dancing and their own songs. The danseuse is usually accompanied by four comics dressed in jackets, large checked waist-garments and wrap around turbans. The dancing is quick and lively. The program lasts from about 7pm to midnight.

Myanmar Traditional Chinlone (Cane Ball)




Traditional Chinlone (cane ball) Sport has been developed and played by Myanmar nationals since ancient Pyu era and spread out to other regions through Sumatra and its small islands. Many researchers concluded the origin of Chinlone as Myanmar.

The sport of playing Chinlone was developed in Myanmar many years ago and in the era of King Bo Daw Phaya, it was ordered to play at traditional festivals. Since then, Myanmar has maintained the Chinlone sport tradition by playing it widely across the country. Not only playing in the country but also breaking through the international borders and rules have been drawn as a sport and it was introduced by Myanmar at 27th Southeast Asian Games hosted by Myanmar as a traditional sport.

Chinlone is made of rattan and its size is five inches in diameter. It is a sport but doesn’t need to compete by using force like as other games. It is only important in how exactly, beautifully a competitor can play the cane-ball and how he can play with creative skill.
Myanmar Chinlone is really a combination of sport, fairness and dance by moving forthwith the players’ heads, feet, waists and hands. Therefore, playing with a traditional orchestra, we can see it like as dancing of a male dancer without delay.

Myanmar traditional Chinlone has been handed down since the ancient times and rules were made by ancient Myanmar specifically. The typical playing circle of the traditional Chinlone is 22 feet in diameter and played by six persons and extra two. There are six basic kicks in it. This means players can use six points of the body to contact with the ball. These are the top of the toes, the inner and outer sides of the foot, the sole, the heel and the knee. The Chinlone matches are held stage by stage by determining from basic kicks to special kicks.
Many road-side Chinlone playing circles can be seen across the country and Myanmar nationals of every age and both sexes would like to play the Chinlone. When the skilful players play and kick the ball in various beautiful styles, many pedestrians stop the walking to watch. Kicking the cane ball not to drop to the ground by the players is very amazing. In circle kick or Weing Chin, it needs to play by all of the players in unity than the beautiful solo kicks. Therefore, fairness and unity are essential for the winning of a circle kick of Myanmar Chinlone.

Myanmar traditional Chinlone differs from Sepak Takraw. Sepak Takraw uses force by kicking the ball from side to side over a net. It also uses a synthetic ball. In Myanmar traditional Chinlone, it uses rattan ball only and it can be said as an artful character of unity.
If the readers would like to know, feel and see more about Myanmar Traditional Chinlone, you can see the record film named “Mystic Ball” at www.mysticball-themovie.comtoo.
On 27 December, The Second Asian Traditional Chinlone Game is to be held in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar and not only the Asia nations such as India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia and host Myanmar but also Brazil will compete for the first time.
We present this article with the aim of developing and spreading out the Myanmar Traditional Chinlone Sport more and more.
