Myanmar has been called the hidden gem of South East Asia and it remains an enigmatic destination with a wealth of “yet to be discovered” locations. With tourism having only activated in recent years in Myanmar, (previously known as Burma), this amazing country has views across the Indian Ocean and is undoubtedly South East Asia’s most diverse nation.
With its unspoiled jungles, snow-capped peaks, virgin white sandy beaches and azure waters, antediluvian cities and remarkable religious and historical monuments; not to mention there are more than 135 diverse ethnic groups who call Myanmar “home” - it’s easy to see why Myanmar is so popular.
You can experience a tranquil holiday, or an action-packed expedition, you can visit the rural areas or cities, meet the hill tribes and explore the beaches, mountains or lakes.
Some of Myanmar’s most prevalent destinations include the captivating cities of Yangon and Mandalay; striking nature trails in Inle Lake, Kengtung, Putao, Pyin Oo Lwin; the primeval cities of Bagan and Mrauk-U; kayaking the Ayeyarwaddy River; the stunning beaches in NabuleNgapali and Ngwe Saung; and sacred sites in Mon State, Pindaya, Bago and Hpa-An.
Yangon is a big city, with Victorian buildings, tree-lined boulevards, lakes and parks and a lively city centre of sociable merchants, colourful stalls and people going about in their daily tasks in their traditional Longyi and sandals.
The 15th century primordial city of Rakhine Kingdom is located in the north-west of the country.
