The legendary “Golden Land” – this is still the Myanmar of today. Certainly one of the most exotic countries in the world–aland of astounding beauty and charm that moved Kipling to pen these apt words: “quite unlike any land you will ever know”.
Myanmar is a paradise to discover, a destination for discerning travelers to explore and experience the mystical charms of the East in all its diversity – rich archaeological sites, glittering pagodas, a wealth of cultures, colorful festivals and arts. Myanmar is also blessed with an awe-inspiring range of natural sights – idyllic landscape, lush fertile plains, vast virgin jungles, majestic snowcapped mountains, pristine beaches washed by crystal clear waters, fragrant pine trees and sunflowers bathed in abundant sunshine.
Drift down the Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) River in an old steamer or luxury cruiser. Stake out a slice of beach on the blissful Bay of Bengal. Trek through pine forests to minority villages scattered across the Shan Hills without jostling with scores of fellow travelers. Best of all, you’ll encounter locals who are gentle, humorous, engaging, considerate, inquisitive and passionate – they want to play a part in the world, and to know what you make of their country. Now is the time to make that connection.
