Burma (or Myanmar) is a hidden gem nestled between India, Thailand and the Bay of Bengal. Years of being cut off from the outside world means that this newly emerging democracy appears to be lost in time; men dressed in longyis stroll colonial boulevards, ancient temples punctuate city skylines and untouched countryside rolls into hill tribe villages. Step back into a bygone era here and experience pure Asia in the cities and towns, where the temples and pagodas are hives of activity, and in the countryside where life goes on unchanged; Burma holidays are filled with a sense of true exploration.

In a country where monks are modern-day celebrities, Burma’s religious treasures reign supreme: follow pilgrims to glittering Swedagon pagoda or climb the steps to Taungkalat Monastery, precariously perched on top of a volcano plug, and any holiday is crowned by a stunning sunrise hot air balloon flight over the fields of Bagan, dotted with hundreds of ancient stupas. To head further from the beaten track, travellers with steady sea legs can board a yacht to sail around Burma’s remote, beautiful Mergui Archipelago and enjoy a glimpse into the life of the traditional sea gypsies.

Only recently opened for foreign tourists, visitors keen to discover Burma as it is should begin planning a visit almost immediately before crowds, modernity or other cultural influences begin to dilute or alter the perfectly-preserved ancient customs that Burma’s kept tucked away for so long.

A gentle cycle ride along the dirt tracks of Bagan is a wonderful way to spend a morning. The beauty of exploring by bike is that you can stop when you want – take shade under a tree, chat to passing locals or simply relax and enjoy the serene peacefulness of the temple-dotted countryside. The cool breeze as you pedal past 9th-century temples is a refreshing reward for your efforts!

Stefanie's Tips
1
Observe riverside life with a cruise along the Irrawaddy River from Mandalay to Bagan, aboard the RV Paukan.
2
Rise early for Burma's most iconic tourist attraction and float peacefully over the temples and pagodas of Bagan at sunrise.
3
Set sail for Burma's remote, undiscovered and beautiful Mergui Archipelago to experience island and sea gypsy life.
