Myanmar

There is no better time to visit Myanmar than right now! This land, scattered with gilded pagodas where the traditional ways of Asia endure, was previously off-limits and has now opened up.

A great deal has been changing over the last couple of years. This Southeast Asian country has gone from being a military junta isolated from the world to a nation pursuing democracy which opened up following the 2010 elections and the November release that year of pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who had been under house arrest for almost 15 years.

Myanmar remains a rustic place to visit and it is relatively undeveloped. The country is yet to be completely overwhelmed by Western fashion. Everywhere you go you’ll encounter men wearing skirt-like longyi, women smothered in traditional make-up and betel-chewing grannies. People get around in trishaws and horse and cart. Drinking tea is enthusiastically embraced in thousands of traditional teahouses. Life continues to move at a snail’s pace and modernisation has been equally slow, but change is coming and each day sees more new cars on the streets, but they still share the roads with horse carts, trishaws, bicycles, and motorbikes.

Of course all of this is part of Myanmar’s charm. Equally alluring are its gleaming pagodas, historic temple complexes that rival Cambodia’s great Angkor complex, and lush landscapes distinguished by forested mountains, tranquil lakes, picturesque rivers, and impressive caves.

Not yet jaded by tourism – tourists remain a novelty in Myanmar – the Burmese are some of the friendliest people you’ll meet and encounters with locals are a highlight of a trip.

Yangon

Yangon (Rangoon) is Burma’s main city. This is where you’ll find the grand colonial buildings of the colonial age, charmingly neglected in a part of Asia that hasn’t joined the rush to modernise. The people look instead to the Shwedagon Paya, the ‘Golden Pagoda’, a huge hill-top temple at the heart of the city that’s always thronged with devotees.

Bagan

Bagan is Burma’s Angkor, the site of hundreds of Buddhist temples scattered across a vast plain, all that remain of a long-vanished ancient capital where the wooden houses have long since disappeared and only the stone-built holy monuments remain.

Mandalay

Mandalay, upcountry in Burma’s north, is a low-rise, slow-moving outpost where bicycles set the pace and every hill is topped with a pagoda: it feels more town than city. This is the launching point for visits to ancient temples and the cool hill station of Pyin U Lwin, where stagecoaches trundle around town.

Inle Lake

Inle Lake in central Burma is the perfect place to explore the rural side of the country, with boat rides to lively markets and floating villages and hikes to tribal settlements. For some relaxation on the coast, the southern destinations – they can’t really be called resorts – of Ngapali and Ngwe Saung offer sweeping beaches.
