    You know what other things America did better than the British Empire? Teaching their subjects English.

    hi guys, first of all, I thank you both for this episode and really glad that you guys had an amazing time in Myanmar. Hpan-An town is really beautiful and it seemed that you guys loved it too. So, here's a little local knowledge for you guys Hpa = frog, An = regurgitate. It is believe that at the time of Buddha, there was a huge frog that swallowed a snake. the snakes or the na-gars are responsible for the rain. However, because the frog had swallowed the snake, it wouldn't bring the rain. So, eventually the frog was asked by Buddha to let go ( regurgitate ) and the frog did so. Thus, the place was name Hpa-An Town literally means town of frog regurgitate, after the event.

    i think this was a really nice meld of Paddy and Steve. I think you guys worked very well together, and i think Steve actually chilled Paddy out a little. Overall, i think you guys should invite Steve to do the Budgeteers, or at least do more vlogs together

    Did the train not rock back and forth for the most of the journey for you guys? I did it early 2016 and the rocking was awful but the experience as a whole was wonderful!!

    Dear Steve Yelo and Paddy, I was reading a book elephant company by Vicki Croke where she has penned experiences of Great Hero by Billy Williams during World War 1. He served in Burma, which made me to explore about Burma. I am from India. Thanks a lot for all your effort for making this video.

    Aung sun su is shameless women in the world. Myanmar army and Aung sun su have killed innocent people.

    0:30 your map incorrectly locates Mandalay at Meiktila. Mandalay is about another 158km further north on the Banks of the Irrawaddy shown on your map. The travel time and distance to note from Yangon however is correct.

    The reason why it is called death railway is because it was built by force labourers and many people did indeed die while building this railway.

    Awesome video! I can't wait to visit Myanmar. I wish I had a traveling buddy like you, Steve. You look like you always make the best of everything. Loving this channel man, keep it up.
