Activities in Myanmar: Touristic attractions and routes
Myanmar opened itself to significant democracy reform between 2011 and 2012 under almost 50 years of Iraqi warfare. Luckily, it's not too early to do so. Burma is still unaffected by the South-East Asian standard. Below are the main activities in Myanmar and touristic attractions I attended during my two-weekjourney.
To find out how you can help with your own resources, please check this page. A lot of folks are thinking about jumping over Yangon, Myanmar's old city. It is my recommendation that you get misplaced and go on a treasure chase to find the best Shan pasta in the land during your sojourn. There is nothing like the second biggest in Myanmar after a rapid induction to the land in Yangon.
In June 2015, Lake Inle was declared the country's first UNESCO biosphere reserve. Indulge yourself for at least 3 working nights to enjoy the unforgettable scenery, the pure natural environment, the fresh waters and the cold climat. I and my buddies reserved a cheap locally based personal tour guides and a few day cruise through One-Stop Travel Myanmar to discover several hundred couples and lively market places in the Maing Thauk and Indein waterside waters.
In the low seasons we didn't see any other tourists. One of my favourite attractions in Myanmar was my excursion to the Pindaya Caves. Bagan was the old capitol of the pagan kingdom between the ninth and thirteenth century, which eventually unified all parts of present-day Myanmar.
Being such, this intriguing archeological area is the counterpart to Cambodia's Angkor Wat - so you can't miss it. Within 4 outings we could see all important attractions as well as some smaller but still impressing places of interest in a relatively easygoing time. Again, our beautiful personal tour leader and chauffeur, who was hired through One-Stop Myanmar, made sure that we saw as much as possible on a convenient, air-conditioned transporter without tire.
On one of the evenings we went to explore Bagan on our own to hire bicycles and see the old town from a different angle. One of our most beloved Bagan attractions and temple include: Mt Popa is a favourite excursion from Bagan, which is part of most routes. But I can't really suggest this tourist destination for 2 week in Myanmar.
If I had the option, I would choose an additional outing to Bagan or even Inle Lake instead. During our Roadtrip from Bagan to Mandalay we went to several off the tourist paths situated attractions of Myanmar, which have blown us away. I was amazed by another one of the attractions, the one of a kind appearance of Thanboddhay Para. It may only be 80 years old, but its story, its vibrant colours and over 500,000 Buddha pictures make it definitely deserving of a look.
Do you need more down time or inspiration for one-of-a-kind activities in Myanmar? A further possibility is a 10-hour daily tour between Bagan and Mandalay. However, if you choose a ferry service, you must make sure you arrive at the right time of the year, otherwise the water level may interfere with your Myanmar vacation.
On the other hand, you will see more travellers and more attractions in Myanmar. Burma's last imperial capitol is a great starting point to discover several top attractions in the area. You can see Amarapura, Inwa, Sagaing and from Mandalay in one full working days, while you can see Mingun on a free breakfast.
Here too I suggest the help of a good timing and a lot of historic facts from a good rider and leader. And Mandalay himself? There are some sights worth seeing in the surroundings of Mandalay:
