Burma's best destinations - What to see?
Ruled by civil government since 2011, Burma, formally known as the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, is a land untouched by massive tourist activity that cannot be ignored. Mainly Buddhistic, the state also greets other minority religions and races that sometimes have to prevail in order to live. Wherever you go, it is the Buddhistic dedication that impresses you.
After arriving in Rangoon (now Yangon), take a walk in the Kyauktada quarter on the bank of the Irrawaddy. The nickname of the jewel town for the exceptional delicacies of its Java, Mandalayis to explore by bike or in a tuk-tuk to climb the mound and sundown.
However, perhaps you like Amarapura, the Burmese immortal town, where the infamous Teaak Brigde is situated, traversed throughout the whole afternoon by several hundred Buddhist chaplain.... Or, perhaps it is a different epoch of cruising on the Irrawaddy to the town of Bagan (formerly Pagan) that will seduce you.
Thousands of churches stand on a wide level as evidence of the splendour of a bygone civilization. Walk along the western shore of Ngapalior Ngwe Saung which has a good name. Dive into Buddhism dedication in front of the Golden Rock at Hpa An, then head to Moulmein (renamed Mawlamyine) and Bilu Gyun Island, off the well-trodden paths.
What are the best places to hike in Myanmar?
Wander through mountain towns and plantation teas as you explore the epic (yes, that's a word!!!!) of Myanmar. Burma is still known to many as Burma and is a breathtaking place to walk, really one of my favorites in the whole inland. Here is a short summary of our favorite hikes in Myanmar and because we really like you, we have even put together a picture with super-specific detail for each one, just click on the links at the end of each one.
A 3 -day, 2-night guided hike is the most common way to reach Inle. I' m saying it' re quite common, but we saw none other than our group on the hike. There are some who say it's better to walk the other way around, I don't think it works on a few floors either; I've posted an honest as well as interesting article on how to walk between Inle Lakes and Kalaw HERE.
When you do something in Myanmar, do this hike, we have a packinglist, hints, information on how to get the best offer and more HERE. If you have more free play, take a look around Inle Lake, there's probably a whole host of more things to do than you'd like!
It is not that long, you could even do it in one workday. PLEASE take your free moment for an accommodation experience! But if that's not enough, how about spending a few days with the monks at the head of their little convent and eating the mornings?
Oh.... and you walk through a Buddha wood to get to the foot of the hill! It' not really something you can make up and yet there's nothing business about it, it's just Myanmar that's fantastic. To get more details, hints and pictures of this epoxy adventure, take a look at what we wrote about Zwegabin HERE.
When you have more Hpa An experience, you can simply like our guide to explore Hpa An by Motorbike or you can try Top Things to do in Hpa An HERE, it really is a jewel that most folks miss. New to Myanmar?
Burma is undergoing rapid change, so current blogging (like this, ahem!) will be a great one. However, if this is your first visit to Myanmar, you will probably want to take a tour book with you. I' m always thinking you don't need more than a'rough guide', because it's about making it your own game!
