34 Amazing pictures of Myanmar (Burma)
Burma (Myanmar) is one of my most popular tourist attractions..... Myanmar was until recently largely isolated from the outside but with the changes in politics Myanmar is now an up-and-coming backpacker town. All of this makes some unbelievable Myanmar-photographs. Here are 35 pictures of Myanmar to help you get inspired to explore Burma:
Burma is best known for the thousand of breathtaking sanctuaries in Bagan that sunbathe every day in the light of the dawn as warm mountain bombs soar over... A favourite memory I had from Myanmar was the exploration of the huge but flat Inle-See. Surrounding this huge pond are towns, some of which are constructed quite simply on piles above the waters.
While Bagan is known for its sun rises, the Inle Lake sundowns are just as spectacular. Myanmar fisherman are posing with their photo netting to take unbelievable pictures of Myanmar. Fisherman at Lake Inle are rowing their vessels with one foot so that they have their fingers free to work their web.
They are breathtaking results, but remember they await a tip! To explore Inle with the cameras was one of my favourite souvenirs from Southeast Asia. There' s so many great pictures to have - and so many ways to move away from others (it's a big sea, after all).
If you get fatigued, you can simply rent a bosun to take you across the beautiful lakes. l littered with swimming pools where local people cultivate all kinds of plants directly above the waters. There' s also a city known for the production of bean curd and a favourite shopping area.
Although Inle Lake is still a minor tourist destination for Bagan, I actually thought my stay there was the culmination of my sojourn. The atmosphere was relaxing, the unbelievable cultural, the friendliness of the natives, the natural surroundings and of course the wonderful photography everywhere. The town' s vibrant life is very different from what you can imagine from the poetry (Kipling was never actually in Mandalay).
At some places the gangway is so shaky that it may feel like it's going to click into place at any time! And Mandalay also has some breathtaking monasteries, as well as a convent on a mound that offers unbelievable possibilities to take breathtaking pictures of the town. Mandalay is often jumped over by people, but its cultural heritage, temple and general atmosphere are quite special and in my view deserve a stop.
Burma still has a little feeling of a land caught in an age. And, despite developments in Yangon, it's still quite simple to get away from it all. There are many enchanting things about Myanmar - its breathtaking temple, its beautiful countryside, its delicious food. Do you want to go to Burma to take your own Myanmar pictures?
