Also frequently referred to as Myanmar, Myanmar is the second largest country in Southeast Asia and bordered by the more commonly visited countries of China, Laos, Thailand and India. Off the tourist map for many years, it is one of Asia’s genuine unspoilt gems, a land of great diversity, beauty, friendly people, pristine beaches and dazzling temples. And now that Myanmar has opened its arms again to tourism and is welcoming foreign visitors, Myanmar holidays really are a must for travellers and a destination quite unlike anywhere else in Asia.
Recently titled the top emerging travel destination in the world, it was estimated over a million travellers visited Myanmar last year. This number is still very low though when compared to the many millions who holiday in Thailand or Malaysia each year, so many people believe that taking Myanmar holidays now really will mean seeing this beautiful country before mass tourism hits, prices increase and the queues start to form. This may be still some way off, but with such incredible sights as the floating gardens of Inle Lake, the white sands of Ngapali beach on the Bay of Bengal, the giant golden Shwedagon Pagoda or the breathtaking ancient temple city of Bagan, it’s not hard to see why Myanmar holidays are just so popular.
A Myanmar holiday represents to many the authentic vision of Asia. Unspoilt and off the usual tourist trail, travellers will find creaky buses, cheap prices, sensational food, friendly and genuine locals and witness a way of life untouched by western influences. You won’t find fast internet, many global brands or have much mobile phone reception, but that’s not why people take Myanmar holidays. You’ll travel here to experience unrivalled hospitality, independent accommodation and new experiences that you won’t find anywhere else in the world. Mynamar has to be seen to be believed and it is truly a unique destination in Asia that guarantees to wake the explorer in you.
