Milling around Pathein

Ayeyarwady Region is known as the “rice bowl” of Myanmar, and Pathein is home to a number of mills where paddy is processed and the rice is bagged for shipment overseas or to other parts of the country.

It seemed like no visit to Pathein would be complete without seeing one of these mills, so we dropped by and asked for a quick tour.


Another action-packed day of filling bags at the rice mill.

Sticks are handed out to keep a tally of the number of bags loaded for shipment.

Eon Productions has revealed the latest sporty James Bond car for the next movie in the 007 franchise, to be titled “Rice Mill Royale” and set in Pathein.
