Holidays to Burma (Myanmar)

Golden pagodas glint from hilltops, saffron-robed monks step out of picturesque monasteries, ox carts bump along rural roads, Myanmar (formerly Burma) is a fairy-tale land of enchanting sights. After decades of isolation it is catching up with the outside world yet creates a feeling of travelling back in time. Visitors generally follow an established circuit which encompasses many of the country’s most spectacular sights: Yangon, where the amazing Shwedagon pagoda glitters above Victorian colonial architecture; Bagan, with its thousands of ancient temples; buzzing Mandalay, with quiet, outlying monasteries and ancient sites, and dreamy Inle Lake with floating gardens, houses on stilts and some of the most smilingly enterprising people one could wish to meet. Other areas are more new to welcoming travellers, including the glorious Mergui archipelago (there’s a paradise of coral here), the amazing limestone landscape around Loikaw, and the beautiful Chin Hills where several hiking routes have been established.
