Home to Southeast Asia’s oldest and most culturally sophisticated civilization, Myanmar formeraly known as Burma is crammed with wondrous historic monuments – from gigantic gilded stupas to vast temple complexes sprawling over thousands of weed-infested acres. It also holds some enthralling landscapes: forested mountains in the north, huge river deltas in the middle and pristine tropical islands in the far south.

Moreover, despite having only recently emerged from decades of enforced isolation from the Asian mainstream, Myanmar's predominantly Buddhist population are evidently delighted to be able to share their culture with foreign visitors. A perfect blend of old-world charm and rapidly evolving modernity, this is one country where travel still feels like a discovery.
