Myanmar

Commonly referred to as the Golden Land and earlier known as Burma, Myanmar is both mystifying and enthralling. Myanmar’s long-term seclusion has bestowed a corner of Southeast Asia bursting with traditional culture, theology and old-world charisma. A visit to Myanmar is similar to turning back the clock. You may find Phone and Internet connections unreliable in places hence allowing you to quietly experience a culture which lay emphasis ontheology and venerate monks and holy men.
 
Visit to the mysterious and striking plain of Bagan can be one of the attractions of a holiday to Myanmar. Located on the banks of the Irrawaddy River and covering an area of 42squarekilometer, this plain is the prime area of Buddhist temples, pagodas, stupas and prehistoric pious remains in the world and belonging to early11th and 12th centuries. When viewed from above in a hot air balloon, the place is principally impressive.
 
In Yangon, formerly known as Rangoon, you can simply wander along tree-shaded paths and marvel at golden stupas and dazzling pagodas. As you walk around downtown Yangon, the place unveil the Shwedagon Pagoda which is purely magnificent and some of the most impressive regal period structural design in the region. Mandalay offers the chance to offer charity and food to the monks and novices from the Mahagandayon Monastery prior to visiting the hundreds of tranquil stupas on Sagaing Hill. Myanmar offers you to tour to royally hill stations that are situated amid undulating pine-clad hills. Or flowing around Inle Lake with its stilt house villages at the water’s edge could be another choice. You can simply sense the supremacy of a Buddhist remnant at Kyaiktiyo, also recognized as Golden Rock, where a huge golden stupa rests insecurely on the border of a hill.
