Myanmar

Be Enchanted

Formerly known as Burma, Myanmar is a South Asian country sandwiched in between India, Bangladesh, China and Thailand. With more than 100 ethnic groups making Myanmar a huge melting pot of Asian cultures. Myanmar started to open up and promote tourism in the early 90’s but the country is still left off many travellers list. Myanmar is a beautiful country, with warm people, and still a very poor country. Tourism within the last couple of years has grown exponentially,but it won’t stay that way for long. Yangon is likely where you will start and most people will visit Bagan, and Mandalay. Don’t forget other great areas like Inle Lake, Hpa-An,Hsipaw, and Thandwe.
