Myanmar

 

Myanmar, also known as Burma (officially Republic of the Union of Myanmar), was long considered a pariah state, isolated from the rest of the world. This country is now open and shows the world an amazing blend of all civilizations, in addition to having its own culture.  Quite unlike any place, Myanmar has its own charm, an extraordinary land, scattered with gilded pagodas, where the traditional ways are still practice until these days. With landscapes, a tropical climate, beaches and truly amazing sights, Myanmar is a fascinating and bewitching destination.

Best travel season: November to April
Main Airports: Yangon international airport (RGN), Mandalay International Airport (MDL), Naypyidaw International Airport (NYT)
