Burma is still the undiscovered 'Pearl of Southeast Asia'. This is because the predominantly Buddhist country was isolated for years and shunned by many travelers. You can still taste the atmosphere of yesteryear! The population is affectionate; curious monks and other Burmese will enjoy the chance to exercise their English with you. Visit ancient royal cities around Mandalay, and Bagan with its magnificent ancient temples and palaces. Stroll through hills and rice fields, visit markets, witness minorities in national costumes and go sailing on the rustic Inle Lake. Come to Myanmar now before the country is discovered by mass tourism!
