If there’s one destination that will never fail to entrance us, it’s Myanmar. This Golden Land is like no other place on earth, dotted with the spires of gilded pagodas and blazed over by a tropical sun, it has an innate sense of magic that has left it frozen in time.
A holiday in Myanmar will take you from the emerald, rock-studded waters of Mergui to the majesty of Mandalay; a melting pot of colonial architecture, botanical gardens and the mighty Anisikan waterfalls. 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 of Bagan, marvelling 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 fisherman using traditional conical nets. Lastly, be sure to enjoy the beautiful white beaches of Ngapali, an emerging beach destination. 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 its beauty and simplicity.
