Myanmar is Southeast Asia's next big destination: the ruins of Bagan, Inle Lake, and the urban charms of Yangon and Mandalay come together to form a fascinating country for visitors. Myanmar reveals a unique culture, history, and geography, and is the right suggestion if your customers want to get off the beaten track and have meaningful, heartfelt, and local experiences.
Yangon's golden temples and British colonial architecture sets it apart from the other large cities of Southeast Asia. Though many colonial buildings suffer serious neglect, the pristine temples reflect this deeply religious country. The hustle and bustle of central Yangon is contagious, and the hospitable Burmese will make you feel welcome. This is a city on the move and is changing fast - now is the time to visit.
Inle Lake is fast becoming a popular spot for photographers, with magnificent sunsets that illuminate the lake and captivating riverside scenes of local life
Myanmar's second city and the country's last royal capital, Mandalay is calmer and more orderly than Yangon. Although not immediately attractive, Mandalay offers much in the way of markets, temples, and one of Asia's most welcoming urban populations.
The mountain villages in Myanmar are some of the most untouched in all of Southeast Asia. The government recognizes 135 distinct ethnic groups, making Myanmar one of the most diverse countries in the world. Each group displays their own customs, clothing, art, and architecture
One of the world's great archeological sites, Bagan is also an absolute highlight of any trip to Myanmar. Magnificent stupas rise above the treetops to spectacular effect, particularly when the setting sun is painting the sky a deep orange.
