Finally opening up to the outside world after years of political isolation, Myanmar offers a wealth of unspoiled historical and cultural beauty to explore. Formerly known as Burma, the country is blessed with a rich heritage that has been preserved in spite of its difficult recent history. As the largest city in the country, Yangon (Rangoon) boasts impressive Buddhist temples and a faded colonial charm that contrasts with the modern construction projects that are bringing the country firmly into the 21st Century. Further north up the Mekong River, you can explore the historic city of Mandalay and the spectacular temple complex at Bagan, whilst in the southeast, Mon State is home to the intriguing Kyaiktiyo Golden Rock Pagoda. A vast country with a hospitable culture and proud history, Myanmar is an unforgettable destination for the adventurous traveller.
