Set to be ‘the’ destination of the decade, Burma has for many years been sealed off behind a curtain of secrecy by the ruling military junta and has only recently been able to welcome visitors back to the country. With the release of the opposition leader Ang San Suu Kyi and removal of international sanctions, the number of travellers who will visit Burma is set to rocket over the next few years so it’s worth visiting sooner rather than later.
A visit to Burma is in some ways like taking a step back in time, with very little about the country having changed since British colonial times. This gives us a unique opportunity to experience a more traditional Asia, untouched by western culture and tourism. Discover the famous Mandalay surrounded with ancient ruins, Yangon the centre of Buddhist Burma, the temple strewn plain of Bagan and panoramic views from the Ayeyarwaddy River. A trip to Burma is sure to surprise and delight.
