Burma, also known as Myanmar has retained elements of culture and tradition in a way that many of its Asian neighbours haven’t done. With vibrant festivals and markets, exquisite temples, diverse landscapes and friendly local people, Burma retains the aura of a bygone era.
Deep-rooted Buddhism is evident in Burma, with beautiful temples and ornate pagodas dotting the countryside, and especially in the local’s laid-back way of life.
The major attraction of any trip to Burma has to be Bagan, a dusty plain filled with stupa upon stupa, their exotic shapes decorating the horizon. Yangon, AKA Rangoon, the former capital, is a dynamic city retaining much of its colonial character and has the added bonus of the gleaming Shwedagon Pagoda which attracts streams of devotees with offerings. Don’t miss the magnificent palace of Mandalay, or heavenly Inle Lake and its friendly people – bound leave a lasting impression even on the most seasoned travellers.
