Myanmar Travel Guide

Myanmar was one of the most magical destinations I visited during my year in Asia.

I nearly cancelled my trip here due to the political nature of what was occurring in the country – if you don’t know what I am talking about google the countries past before visiting.

I’ve never met a nation where the people were so warm and welcoming – have an amazing time discovering this mystic land…

Myanmar Travel Basics:

What to see in Myanmar

The most popular places to explore in Myanmar is the city of Yangon, the historic temples of Bagan, the dusty city of Mandalay and the relaxing and peaceful Inle lake.

As more of the country opens up to tourism however and the north in particular becomes easier to access don’t be surprised to see more ‘must visit’ destinations throughout the country. One place which I think will steal headlines soon are the Mergui Islands which still seem rather too expensive to explore.
