Closed off from the rest of the world for many years, Myanmar remains relatively untouched by mass tourism. As a result, its temple-strewn landscapes, royal palaces and traditional villages remain largely unspoiled. Exploring this nation’s religious sites and meeting its friendly, humble people is an enchanting and rewarding experience.
Explore Yangon, Myanmar’s largest city, and see the magnificent, gold-plated Shwedagon Pagoda. Scenic Inle Lake is famous for its floating gardens, lakeside temples and monasteries; look out for the famous leg-rowing fishermen, as they deftly manoeuvre their wooden boats across the water.
A highlight of any Myanmar holiday is an exploration of Bagan. This UNESCO-listed archaeological zone has more than 2,000 temples, stupas and monasteries dotted across Myanmar’s central plains. Witnessing these temples is a mesmerising experience, particularly when seen from above from a hot air balloon.
