Myanmar — sitting on the cusp of change, this Southeast Asian gem has all the exotic charm to be one of the world’s best and favorite travel destinations. Rudyard Kipling in 1898 summed it up impeccably as he remarked, “This is Burma and it is unlike any land you know about.” This statement still rings true today.
So, where should you go for a Myanmar holiday? Highlights of the country include Yangon, Myanmar’s busiest city full of eclectic atmosphere in culture and diversity, beautifully complimented by the revered gold-plated Shwedagon Pagoda. Head to the heart of the country’s architectural wealth in Bagan, where over 2000 stupas rest on a magnificent vast plain, and Inle Lake, a deep body of water surrounded by the Shan Mountains, home to floating gardens and rural villages, all of which can be explored by boat.
Take the chance to travel to the lesser known destinations as they are equally enchanting and not to be missed! Journey to Patao at 5500 meters, some of the highest mountains of Southeast Asia, the tropical waters of the Myeik Archipelago best seen by sailboat, and Mrauk U, at one time the wealthiest city in Asia and now a fascinating major archeological site.
In the end, it is the distinct and colorful character that makes Myanmar stand out from its Southeast Asian neighbors. Take the first step to absorb this incredible atmosphere inside one of the local tea shops, your own window into the curious and gorgeous world of Burmese culture.
