Golden Myanmar Travel photos

Sunset in Bagan
As I was making a photobook for our trip in Myanmar 2 years ago, I dug these out from my HDD. These are from Bagan, Mandalay, Taung Gyi and Inn Lay.

PaDaung tribe in the mountains. The number of rings around their neck is increased as they age.

I didn't know Shan people has their own traditional umbrella. I only knew of PaThein umbrella in Myanmar.

MyPublisher never disappoints me.  After complaining every night for couple weeks while making this photobook of our trip to Myanmar (Burma) from 2011, and swearing never to make a MyPublisher photo book again (due to all the same reasons I had before), all those complaints went away when I started flipping the pages in my hand when the book arrived.

Quality is the best.  Colors are vibrant and true to digital colors on my monitor. It didn't give me any regrets for many hours put into that book. Paper is thick, heavy, glossy and just so pretty.

I start to appreciate MyPublisher again after trying shutterfly last time for ~$10 (about it in this post).  The quality is not even comparable. Shutterfly pages are super dull, grainy (not due to high ISO), thin and doesn't look hi-resolution at all.  In fact, these Myanmar photos were taken two years ago with XSi whereas  those in Shutterfly book were taken recently with 5DII, but came out with lower quality from Shutterfly.

Although Shutterfly bought MyPublisher, I believe they still have separate printing houses. I hope they stay that way.

I'm very happy with MyPublisher photobook. Feel very rewarding. I might do another book, and repeat the complaining history again after all.

Same pricing as my previous photo books. $30+$10 shipping for 8.5x11" 70 pages hardcover.  They do that promo about 3-4 times  a year.
