From the same film maker as Little Laos, this video of the week offers a miniturised view of Burma, a time-warped country which retains an aura of a bygone era with spectacular landscapes, golden temples and ancient stupas. See the orange glow of the sun as it rises over the dusty plains of Bagan, with stupa upon stupa lining the horizon. Explore Yangon, the dynamic former capital, which still possesses remnants of its colonial charm and is home to the shimmering Shwedagon Padoda. Marvel at the magnificent palace of Mandalay, the last royal capital of Burma and the country’s cultural and religious centre of Buddhism. Cruise heavenly Inle Lake, with its floating farms, stilted villages and crumbling stupas, and much more in this video of the week.
