Myanmar

If there is one destination that makes an entrance, it’s Myanmar. The Golden Land is like no other place on earth. A holiday in Myanmar is akin to seeing history being made; enthralling, extraordinary and enchanting. Myanmar offers all the traditional delights of Asia in one magnificent country. Due to its long period of inaccessibility, visiting Myanmar is like stepping inside a time capsule – Asian’s Cuban equivalent, if you will. Yangon is a convenient starting point. Start your day with the Sula Pagoda, which according to legend is over 2,500 years old. Explore the city’s charming, faded colonial architecture and emerge yourself into the diverse mix of busy markets where you can have a good rummage and chat with the locals. Take a step back in time and be charmed by the 10th century city Bagan, marveling at the 4,400 temples and pagodas throughout the city. For peace and tranquillity head to Inle Lake and enjoy its beautiful floating gardens and the unique one-legged rowing style of the local fishermen using traditional conical nets. Lastly, be sure to enjoy the beautiful white beaches of Ngapali. Myanmar offers a cherished change of pace. In today’s mile a minute pace of life, it’s an absolute delight to immerse yourself in a country that makes you slow down for a minute to really cherish it’s beauty and simplicity.
