曼德勒近郊 – 因瓦

0


因瓦(Inwa)就像世外桃園,這裏人煙稀少,只有極少數的居民,馬車是唯一的代步工具,加上四處散落的歷史遺跡及大片田園風光,感覺尤如到了天空之城裏的Laputa。

說因瓦與世隔絕,不並為過,要到這裏,需乘居民經營的小艇過河。碼頭以木板搭建,十分簡陋。這裏更以馬車代步,沒有汽車的污染,要在因瓦遊覽,乘馬車是唯一選擇,這筆馬車費是不能走掉的。

在碼頭上岸後,十多輛馬車侍候著。我和阿湧隨便選了一輛,馬伕是一個十二、三歲的緬甸青年,說得一口流利英語,還做嚮導介紹沿途名勝。最難得的,是他服務周到,我們貪方便,在曼德勒市沒有買參觀因瓦的套票,這小子竟替我們講價,由六美元的套票講價至三美元的入場費,又順應我們的要求,經常停車拍照,經過一片向日葵田時,還摘下一大朵向日葵送給我呢﹗
最最最印像深刻,是我在一處荒廢佛塔中影相時,一名不懂英語的緬甸人借故帶我四圍拍照,我走時竟要我向收導遊費,事實那佛塔地方不大,基本上沒有他,我也會識路,根本不用他帶,正想跟他理論時,這青年馬伕給我解圍,說了兩句便打發他走了。

我們這兩小時行程裏,共有三個景點,分別是兩座寺廟和一個看更亭。兩座寺廟的結構與在曼德勒市的一樣,所不同的是這裏的較為殘破,明顯見證過歲月的痕跡,而且古跡沒入叢林中,很有探險味道。看更亭則比較新鮮,站在這裏,能俯瞰整個因瓦,大片平原映入眼簾。

可能我們經常停留拍照,阻礙小馬伕的收工時間,最後對我們有點不滿,我們付錢時,竟突然加價,要五美元,還不收FEC, 一定要美金。見他對我們服務周到,也算罷。不過,最令我們氣憤的,是到碼頭等渡輪時,已經購好票,上船時船伕竟說尾班船是下午五點,我們過了時間,威脅我們多付300khats才肯開船。
被人「劏」滋味絕不好受,我們當然不就範,最初賴死在船不肯走,但想真點,不靠他們的船,我們只有游水過對岸,我又不懂游水,只好引頸就待。過了十五分鐘,我們向船伕講價,最終以200khats成交開船,結果整個因瓦之旅,就被這個被「劏」事件蒙上不快陰影。

旅遊小貼士:
1. 過河船費:20緬幣,包車的司機會懂得載你到碼頭,但記慬要五時前回程,否則會被強收開船費。
2. 馬車費用是四美元,馬伕是遊因瓦的導遊。
3. 兩座寺廟均需入場卷,參觀曼德勒市的Atumashi Monastery有售套票,六美元,因瓦即場也有售門票。

Chee

My name is Chee. Add a "r" after the word, then it would become Cheer. This name is called by my friend in university and I like it very much. Why do I love this name? Easy. I always think cheer is important because life is limited and we should make every possible way to enjoy, play, and make ourselves happy. But, saying is easier than doing. Whenever you want to do one thing, something would happen and it will disturb what you are doing right now. You'll never guess what the thing would be. Especially a few people gather together, you'll never guess what they're thinking. More the people there are, more the mess it would be. I've learned the above lesson very very early, and I try not to mind what other's people thinking, but it's really really difficult. Today, I failed again. My friend made me unhappy. But I know I'll recover and back to my life again tomorrow after I had a good sleep. Maybe this is the way of escape since the problems haven't solved yet, but I believe there will be ways to solve the problems and you'll never believe that ways are not so complicated as you think. So cheer cheer cheer up, and life would become easy and happy. 「講左咁耐,都唔知大家明唔明講乜,不過唔明都唔緊要啦,做人難得糊塗嘛,又何必太在意我呢個傻婆講既野。」
