Experience Myanmar: what to see, what to do
Myanmar is one of the world’s most sought after destinations with its gilded temples, confluence of Eastern cultures and hospital Burmese locals. From Yangon’s colonial roots to a boat tour of Inle Lake, let’s explore Myanmar.
Essentials in Myanmar
Yangon: Formerly Rangoon, Yangon is the country’s economic centre and is famous for its pagodas and charming colonial architecture.
Inle Lake: There’s nothing like a boat trip and this large shallow lake is the perfect place for a boat ride. Take a trip from one floating village to the next onboard a traditional canoe. The area also has some good hiking.
Bagan: Postcard-perfect, Bagan is a must! This archaeological zone is home to thousands of pagodas, right on the banks for the Ayeyarwady River.

Accommodation in Myanmar
Compared to Thailand, Myanmar tends to be a bit more expensive but that doesn’t mean you won’t find cheap hotels in Myanamar! En-suite rooms are most expensive in Yangon but elsewhere they’re entirely reasonable. Be aware that power outages are common, even if hotels boast they have generators.
