Only Pakuaku Forest Meditation Center, I recommend you to go to the Meditation Center first before going to Kyaikkhami Pagoda and some places. This is a famous meditation center in Myanmar, and you might see something in the morning.. Foreigners are often visited here frequently, and overseas monks are coming.
When meditating, the inside of the head will be refreshing and the mood will become clear. However, meditation is very difficult and it is not something that can be done soon. I think that it will take at least 2 to 3 months, it can be successful. Human always think something, so you try the meditation, and feel something which you think and feel in your mind by yourself. It is easy, just sitting and close your eyes, then you can see in your mind. You might feel your stress or somthing, and when you can not to thiink and feel in your mind, the stress would have gone and clearly.

How to get to Pa-Auk Forest Meditation Center
From Mawlamyine, it takes a time for around 20mins to 30mins. The road is the same going to Reclining Big Buddha and Sitting Big Buddha. So I recommend you to hire a motorbike taxi for half day or 1 day. You can go to the other places along this road.
