For years, the former Burma has offered mystery behind its closed doors, however as the country awakens to visitors it has showcased an extraordinary land, scattered with glistening pagodas, where traditions from time past still appear.
From the vast plains, along the meandering rivers to the colonial touched cities filled with a mix of the past and the new, voices of historic travellers before you bring an enticing world just begging to be discovered.
Yangon is a convenient starting point from which to reach anywhere in the country Bagan should undoubtedly be on the itinerary of every traveller to Myanmar and with good reason – the stupa dotted plains are the most well-known and popular image of Myanmar.
Inle Lake offers both stunning scenery and tradition while in Mandalay, it’s easy to escape the main streets, instead discovering areas full of craft workshops and tree-shaded monasteries.
A great way to experience this vast country is on-board one of the delightful river cruises ranging from a few days to a few weeks and the emerging beach destination of Ngapali offers a real combination holiday.
Myanmar is like no other place on earth enhanced by the fun-loving hospitable people. Renowned as “The Golden Land”, it is a must-see country for anyone who wants to see a different side of Asia.
