Myanmar

Stretching from the Eastern Himalaya to the Andaman Sea, Myanmar has emerged as one of Asia’s most exciting hot spots, unique, mysterious, with a 2000 year old heritage at the crossroads of civilisations. Cut off for decades from the outside world, it preserved its culture and, whether you call it Burma or Myanmar, it is, as Kipling wrote in 1898, ‘unlike any land you know about’. For many Burmese, Yangon remains the soul of the nation, a vibrant city bursting with colour and culture, more significant than the new purpose-built capital further north, for up on Singuttara Hill stands the country’s spiritual icon, the magnificent Shwedagon pagoda. Explore Myanmar like never before.
