Myanmar is a beautiful resource-rich country with a colourful culture, largely a mix of Indian and local traditions as well as Chinese influences. Buddhist stupas and temples resembling those of neighboring Thailand can be seen all over the country, even in the remotest of villages. As a result of being closed to foreign tourists for so many years, Myanmar has stunning natural beauty and unique cultures that are yet to become ‘westernized’. The variety of landscapes from beaches to lakes, mountains and jungle, and the markets of Mandalay and Yangon will take your breath away with their feeling of being raw and untouched. Myanmar’s people and places are truly extraordinary and will leave you with memories to last a lifetime.
