Here's some of the very good reasons why.

  1. Head off on a spiritual journey
  2. Visiting and exploring Pindaya
  3. Experience the marvel of Inle Lake
  4. Take a trip back in time
  5. The experience of being welcomed with open arms by the Burmese people
  6. Temples are everywhere to be seen in Bagan

Travel on the waters of the Irrawaddy and its secrets

Going from the north of Tibet to the south east of Myanmar, with one of its branches feeding the Yangon region, the Irrawaddy River plays a more than important role in economic and social life, as well as in an environmental framework. The Burmese people feed from it, they see their dreams quiver on its wasters, they sometimes suffer because of it but they live from it.

The art of eating in Myanmar

The art of eating in Myanmar

Myanmar's cuisine is perhaps less sophisticated than that of its neighbours but it is full of flavour and more consistent. You need to find the place where the locals eat - on the street - to admire the variety of meals made with rice and 5-10 sides. Feasts are savoured tepid in Myanmar so you need to come with a large appetite!
