This video is about rural life in a village on the Byat Ta Pan San Road between Mount Popa and Bagan in Myanmar.

I came across this village on the return to Bagan from a visit to Taung Kalat (Mount Popa). This village did not seem to be frequented by many tourists. It seemed genuine. The children were following the visitor, while the cows, pigs and poultry were lazing under the heat of the sun. Most buildings were bamboo style, built on pillars. Some houses were made of bricks, obviously belonging to the more affluent among the village residents.
