4 main cities to be discovered during a first stay in the country:

The former capital of Yangon is the perfect starting point of a trip to Myanmar with its fading colonial buildings standing alongside golden pagodas, providing a snapshot of the contrasts of the country. 

Situated on the banks of the Irrawaddy River Bagan is filled with hundreds of brick and stucco temples where one could spend days biking or walking through the ruins. Whichever method of transport you settle on be sure to choose a favorite temple to sit beside and experience one of Bagan unforgettable sunsets bathing the city with golden lights every night.

Further north lays the evocative-sounding city of Mandalay where kings and queens once held court. Now a cultural and religious hub in the country Mandalay is still home to many craftsmen using traditional skills and methods. All the charm of this part of Myanmar lies mostly in the surroundings crafts villages, as well as in the countless pagodas and breath-taking landscapes.

Last but not least the tranquil waters of Inle Lake are home to the Inthar people who live in stilt houses and developed their own economic system: they grow anything from tomatoes (the region’s main ‘cash crop’) to the flowers required to build their extraordinary meter thick floating islands, which are made by weaving dry grasses, hollow stem weeds and water hyacinth. The lake’s surroundings also contains other treasures like the famous Phaung Daw Oo pagoda, ancient Buddhist monasteries or the joyful and colourful market: enough to not get bored one minute!

Myanmar also boasts of beautiful mountains in its remote areas, an ideal playground for outdoor enthusiasts, and is blessed with a striking coastline of unspoiled beaches for relaxing.
