Accomodations at Kalaw - Golden Lily
There is strange trend in Myanmar in relation to the cost of accommodation. Accoms in smaller cities/towns can be more expensive than those of cities with lower standard (dirtier sometimes, the accomo itself usually quite old).
In Kalaw, we stayed this guest house - Golden Lily. Old but CHEAP (thus GREAT!)!! Twin room is $12/night with own bathroom. The single with shared bathroom is $6. Very basic but quite clean. Inside of the rooms both singles and twins are quite spacious and wooden floor. No air-con as it is much cooler in Kalaw. Happy Brekky included.
We stayed the twin room on the 1st level (there is no rooms on the ground level). There are other rooms on the 2nd level as well, which gives you a better panorama view of the Kalaw town.Oh Kalaw... it is a lovely small town with hundreds bike taxis (as there are numerous small villages in / around the mountains). There are three couples including us checked in on the same morning (we arrived here 4AM by bus from Yangon), and we kept bumping into each other in town (and became friend!)!!
