Myanmar is a complicated country that has made tentative steps towards democracy and the tourism boycott has been lifted. It’s currently a fascinating time to visit Myanmar’s golden stupas, pristine beaches, rambling rice fields, crumbling temples and idyllic mountain paths. The most memorable aspect of your journey though, will be your encounters with the Burmese people – warm, friendly and eager to introduce outsiders to a country that has been a mystery for years.
From the magnificent temples of Bagan to the vast natural beauty of Inle Lake, to travel Myanmar is to experience a unique culture and landscapes. There are endless opportunities for adventure activities and sports here, particularly cycling and trekking, as well as the chance to engage and interact with the most remote ethnic minorities in Asia. This is a little known land where unexpected pleasures and adventures await at every turn.
