Myanmar (Burma) holidays by Fleewinter

An unforgettable sunset over the temples of Bagan

Now is the time to visit this extraordinary land of golden spires, majestic temples and barely-touched beaches. Expect to see wandering monks (who are the A-list celebrities here), water buffaloes grazing in beautiful scenic landscapes and a local population that still dresses traditionally, yet to be exposed to western ways.

Myanmar, or Burma as it was previously called, has only recently opened its doors to tourism after the political situation shifted in 2010. The result? A wonderfully unadulterated country with some of the friendliest people in the world who are still a little surprised to see tourists visiting their land. Of course it won’t be like this forever, but for now it might

Of course it won’t be like this forever, but for now it might just be the last undiscovered jewel of South-East Asia.

We have spent months travelling Myanmar and have sampled everything on offer; from cruises on the Ayeyarwady River to luxurious, boutique beach hotels and basic rooms off the beaten track. We’ve watched the sunset over Bagan from the lesser-known temples, eaten a freshly cooked Burmese lunch in a family home on stilts over Inle Lake and taken the best of the rickety, rocking train journeys which cut through Myanmar’s most scenic countryside.
