Admire the the Shwedagon Pagoda, Yangon's most iconic stupa
After being closed off to the world for 60 years, the undiscovered land of Myanmar is finally welcoming tourists through its magical doors. From the floating gardens of Inle Lake, the sprinkling of temples across Bagan and the majestic Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) River, the relaxed pace of Myanmar leaves the bliss and enjoyment of travel unharmed.
Feel the warmth and grace of the inquisitive locals, see how the fading British colonial legacy blends with the predominantly Buddhist culture and taste the intoxicating combination of flavours from China, India and Thailand. The breathtaking scenes of age-old golden temples, stupas and monasteries set against green forests are sure to captivate you.
Dotted with villages mounted on stilts along it’s shallow fringes, daily life on Inle Lake consists of locals making floating islands, building houses, constructing monasteries and fishing – adopting an incredibly unique one-legged rowing technique.
Once the capital of the first Empire of Myanmar, Bagan is one of the richest archaeological sites in Asia. Home to thousands of temples, the shimmering golds perfectly capture majestic sunrises and sunsets, providing a fairytale scene like no other.
Moving to its own rhythm, the Irrawaddy River flows from the Himalayas down to the Andaman Sea. Having played important roles throughout the course of history, the Irrawaddy is entwined in legend, memories of war and tales of epic expeditions.
