Having experienced a spike of interest since the lifting of sanctions, Burma has flourished with the increasing amounts of tourists eager to discover the country's remarkable culture and history. Scattered with regal pagodas, verdant countryside and wondrous sights, Burma is the place to see, as well as the place to be seen.
With everything from the seductive floating gardens of Inle Lake, to the iconic sacred sites glittered with gold, you'll find a gentle balance of natural beauty and impressive achievements, all in a world that the modern era has hardly touched at all. This means that the qualms of other tourist destinations simply do not exist here yet. As is the case with Cuba, it's time to get here before everyone else does!
Gain an appreciation of Burma's powerful history through its stunning array of Bagan Temples and Pagodas, amplified by lavish decorations of gold and colour, whilst also often retaining an older, more rustic side as they gracefully show their age. Head over between November and February for the best experience, as this is during the cool, dry season in which nights will be refreshingly cool from days which remain very warm. You will also avoid the monsoon rain which would dampen any visit here.
