Where to go in Myanmar (Burma)
List of regions
Central Burma is home to some of the country's most important historical and cultural treasures. From the ancient temples at Bagan to the calm waters of Inle Lake and on to the cultural hub of Mandalay.
Kachin State, Burma's northernmost state, is a region that has remained largely untouched due to the powerful geographical barrier of the Himalayas to the north.
The former capital Rangoon – now known as Yangon – is the largest and most important commercial centre in Burma. Filled with buildings from the colonial era, the city serves as an evocative reminder of Britain's former power and current legacy.
Coastal Burma (Myanmar) is blessed with mile upon mile of footprint-free sand and more than 800 islands virtually untouched by tourists, making Burma's beaches the home of some of the most relaxing holidays you'll find.
