Mystical Myanmar travel highlights
Unaccessible to the general public, Myanmar opened its gates to the tourist industry in 2012 after five years of military overwinters. However, with its wealth of cultural heritage, pristine sights and unspoilt beauties, it is now the hot new tourist resort in Southeast Asia. There are three points to check when you plan to travel to the areas of the land formerly known as Burma.
Shining shrines are lined up with old houses from the Colonies, while more than seven million eat in lively market and streets. There is no better place to get an insight into Myanmar and Burma's civilization than the country's largest town, Yangon.
Begin your tour by marking the country's most important - and most frequented - place of worship, the Shwedagon Pagoda. It is said that if you don't go to this giant gold Stupa, you haven't really gone to Yangon. In order to get an impression of the eventful past of the land, make a stop for pits at the National Museum.
With 14 rooms and exhibits covering everything from religious and historical subjects to transport and countryside. Particularly impressing is the gem-set crown of Myanmar's last emperor. Though it is a one-stop store for every kind of souvenirs and handicrafts for which the land is famous.
Thinking longyi (the Myanmar sarongs), hand-carved wood buddhas, varnish es, jewelry and everything in between. Formerly one of the largest towns in Southeast Asia, the temple-laden plain of Bagan is still one of the most astonishing places to be visited today. Burma's main city between the 9th and the 13th century, the archeological site contains more than 2,200 shrines, stupas as well as a pagoda, which can compete with those of Angkor Wat in Cambodia and Machu Picchu in Peru.
In contrast to these two old miracles, however, there is a big discrepancy - at the moment there is the smallest part of the tourist. These splendid memorials bear witness to the Burmese commitment to religion over the course of the ages. To see the temple and stupa drastically outlined by the light is really the matter of the buckets lists.
They cannot travel to Myanmar and do not have access to Inle Lake. An aqueous realm that seems to come directly from the pages of a fairy tale book, the art here is hardly affected by modernity. Apart from adventurous backpackers, the tourist sector is still in its early stages, so there is a shortage of premium resorts.
The hotel's own refectory is also the ideal place to get an idea of the Shan and Burma food. Meals such as "mohingha" (a warm and acidic pasta broth that is the informal Swiss speciality ) and the ubiquitous light meal "laphet" (picked greens ) are served, with the help of producers cultivated in the swimming garden of the pond.
