Myanmar

Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, bridges Southeast Asia and northern Asia, bordering Laos, Thailand to the east, India and Bangladesh to the west and China to the north. The country has undergone a complete transformation in recent years since opening up to international investment and tourism resulting in a huge number of hotels, restaurants and bars opening, particularly in the former capital Yangon. Tourists are now largely free to travel around the entire country to enjoy the multitude of natural and cultural wonders the country has to offer.
Myanmar is particularly famous for its highly sought-after jade and gems as well as the stunning temples of Bagan.

Inle Lake
There is something special about Inle Lake that captures the heart and soothes the soul. Everything seems to move at a slower pace, just like the local fisherman that row their boats with one leg.

Mrauk U
Rakhine State is a little visited area that is worth the trip. A blend of culture and traditions make it unlike anywhere else in Myanmar.
This is where black sand beaches meet the Bay of Bengal, and the old women of the Chin tribe have distinctive facial tattoos.

Beaches

Myanmar’s coastline stretches for thousands of miles, starting from the top of the Bay of Bengal down to the Andaman Sea. The islands of Mergui are home to the Moken sea gypsies and with untouched reefs for snorkeling or diving.
From May to September the beaches are closed due to poor weather and the monsoon season.
