Myanmar (Burma)

An enigma uncovered

What to do in Myanmar (Burma)

Introduction

The Irrawaddy River and Inle Lake make cruising in Burma a scenic way to travel, while priceless cultural gems beckon from Manadalay, Yangon, Bagan and local villages. Pristine countryside punctuated with dramatic temple stupas begs exploration.

While Myanmar gleams in the fresh-faced optimism of its golden pagodas, you’ll still find colonial Burma in the country’s riverside towns and its ancient empires enduring in vast, crumbling temple complexes. With a rich heritage of religious identification, colonialism and cultural conflict, history buffs will find plenty to intrigue here, while those looking for a more relaxed introduction to the countryside will find that a scenic river cruise along the Irrawaddy or a stay by Inle Lake will make for a memorable holiday.

History and culture

From plains filled with ancient pagodas as far as the eye can see to evocative 19th century colonial architecture lining city streets, Myanmar provides the means to see thousands of years' worth of history rubbing shoulders with each other.
