Now you can get automatic teller machines in most places, sleep in top-notch accommodation, fly on schedule, the natives will welcome you with charms and open arms, and you can still see the story and the serenity. The best of all is that you are interacting directly with people who want to make your experience an unforgettable one and who want to get to know the outside of Myanmar and show you what it has to offer. Here are some of the best ways to get to know Myanmar.
Let yourself be impressed by the antique Bagan sanctuary, where you will see over 3100 sanctuaries and Stupa in one place, a must for every traveller. It' finishing with Angkor Wat and Machu Picchu. It is about 10 square kilometres in size and initially had over 10,000 churches and stupas.
Burma is abundant in indigenous nature, with a wealth of mineral sources, not to mention golden, so it has been generously used in this sanctuary and throughout the state. Ensure a vistit at nights where the glittering golden glittering under the candles, and with fewer men, you can view the surrender and abandonment that went on in his den.
All of Myanmar is not possible without a tour of Myanmar in the Inle Sea. Ile is a truly beautiful and one-of-a-kind place. It is a relatively flat (7-12 feet down, 2.1-3. 7 meters) sea in the midst of the Myanmar hill, where the local people have over the years constructed towns and farming on the WAD.
Crossing the pond in a small ferry, you will see how the local people have adjusted to living on the sea and see old and contemporary monasteries. Phaungdawoo Pagoda (modern), where there is a custom of putting the Buddha statue with the addition of golden, leading to 5 large nuggets of golden (we guarantee that there really are Buddha sculptures among them).
Relax in the Jumping Cat Tempel (beware, the cat doesn't bounce anymore, but it's still impressive). Or, you could go to a convent that has been constructed centuries ago and is still in use. Spoil all your desires and savour the locals' cuisine. They can buy handmade bed linen and clothes, some of them from the lotsus-blossom.
From the highlands of one of the most mighty kingdoms in the annals of Asia (the Khmer Empire ruled until the end of the fourteenth century), Cambodia was brought to the deepest levels of the bombing during the Vietnam War and subsequent violent Khmer Rouge terrorism with an intermediate colonisation by the French.
Visiting Cambodia means visiting Angkor Wat. Formerly the Khmer kingdom's capitol, which comprised most of Southeast Asia, the former monarchs constructed monasteries deserving of such an area. It' the biggest Temple compound, and the Angkor Wat is the biggest individual one in the world (often in comparison to Machu Picchu and Petra in size).
Think of what the locals must have thought of the Vishnu River as they climbed the stairs of Angkor Wat. The Angkor Wattempple, constructed in the early twelfth centuries and often called the eighth wonder of the earth, will delight you. Ensure you have a stunning panorama at dawn and see the shrine in the cold of the mornings before the crowd builds up (make sure you plan several hours).
Stop at the Angkor Thomtempple, later rebuilt in the twelfth centuary after the land was transformed into Buddhism. The building was designed to be as great as Angkor Wat, and to proselytize the natives to Buddhism and consolidate it as a new one. The memory of Laos is not over.
Once ignored by travellers to Angkor Wat and Vietnam, this land is gradually being rediscovered for its unbelievable nature and old-fashioned allure. It is your goal to relax, have a buffet with good meals, drink Lao-Lao like a native and see an untouched setting and something from a fairytale.
Luang Prabang will be the centre of your stay in Laos, relaxed and welcoming. Situated in the north of Laos, against the Mekong River, this tranquil city is a real eye-catcher. Begin your outing early and see the friars on the roads as they collect charity. From there, after having finished your breakfasts, you will return to the chapels and convents that have been constructed in a unique Laotian way.
Finish your days with an excursion to the evening markets and a meal that will pamper your taste buds. Close the darkness with some Lao-Lao (local Ricehiskey). Go to the top of Pou Si Hill to watch the sun rise or set over the Mekong River Valley, which includes Wat Tham Phou Si Monastery.
Only a brief ride from the city, you can go to an animal reserve (perhaps help washing them), or take a bath in the Kuang Si cases, which drop 60 meters (200 feet) and then drop down the slope through blue coloured trevertine basins. Pull over to the bears bailout to see an Asiatic blackened teddy from afar.
During an early dawn stroll for breakfasts, the old fashioned style of France is blended with the scent of freshly cooked tea and freshly cooked bredread. Expand your stay with a mountain trek or a trip to one or more of the colourful mountain peoples, where you can enjoy the indigenous cultures that have not yet been transformed by the contemporary age.
We travel through the former capital cities of Amarapura, visiting the Mahagandayon monastery, where more than a thousand Buddhist friars are living and studying the Buddha script. You can also see the longest wooden deck of the world at the U Bein Bridg. Cloaked with 600 whitewashed palagodas and convents, Sagaing Hill is considered the spiritual center of Myanmar and is home to 3,000 friars and 100 meditators.
Welcome to Siem Reap, the gateway to the Angkor Temple Komplex and heritage of the Khmer Empire. After your arrive the English speaker will welcome you and help you with the transfers to your accommodation. Your travel leader will give a very interesting short introduction about Cambodia's past, the country's cultures, peoples and lifestyles.
There is no charge for the whole night until a taxi chauffeur picks you up from your accommodation and brings you (30 minutes) back to Luang Prabang International for your board. Motorboat in Inle Lake Myanmar, Tonle Sap Lake Cambodia and Mekong River Laos.
