Myanmar has its fair share of complexities, but this enchanting Asian nation offers plenty to the open-minded traveller. Traverse the country from the southern reaches of commercial Yangon, to the lush, pagoda-dotted landscape of central Bagan and experience all the country has to offer. While Myanmar is slowly modernising, life here is still bound by tradition; trishaws stacked high with produce trundle down streets, past colonial facades and glassy modern structures in the same stretch.
A trip to Myanmar comes with a list of must-sees and dos: visiting Yangon’s striking Shwedagon Pagoda, canoeing down Inle Lake and watching at least one sunrise in Bagan. During the journey, sample Burmese delicacies like mohinga (noodles in a fish-based broth) and nga htamin (fish rice).
