Which are the best places in Myanmar, and can I walk all over the land?

Myanmar, the country of the Pagoda, is one of the hotest tourism destinations in Southeast Asia after Thailand and Vietnam. Sightseeing and activities that you can choose based on your itinerary/number of day. This is one of the most important destinations in Yagon used by the Burmese monarchs to visit the ancient world.

It is generally referred to as "the biggest textbook in the world", as 729 plates of sandstone are labeled with Buddhistic doctrines. The Mahamuni Pagoda is one of the most important Buddhistic pilgrimages in Myanmar, built in 1785 by King Bodawpaya of the Konbaung family.

Best places to visit in Burma

Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, is a supreme state in South East Asia (my favourite part of the world!). Myanmar is one of them because it still seems to be an authentically untouched place of mass travel. Indeed, there are not as many visitors as in other South East Asia because Burma is at last accepting the tourist trade after 50 years of insularity.

Burma is full of places of beauty, unbelievable natural beauty and stunning architectural beauty. Although it is a small nation, there are many places I strongly suggest to visit, so if you want to get to know the top places in Myanmar, look below! Yangon, formerly known as Rangoon, is the biggest town in Myanmar and the place that best mirrors the changes that have taken place since the opening of the land to the outside after 50 years of globalisation.

Shwedagon Paya, Chaukhtatgyi Paya and People's Park. Golden Rock, also known as Kyaiktiyo Pagoda, is an important place of Buddhism in the state of Mon. After the Shwedagon Pagoda and the Mahamuni Pagoda, the Golden Rock is the third most important place of Buddhism in Myanmar.

One of Myanmar's greatest tourist attraction, the Inle is the place where you can see anglers angling on one foot. It is a nice one, but unfortunately it is getting louder and louder and there are startling accounts of the ecological effects of it. The Mandalay area offers a multitude of tourist sites, some of which are accessible by bike, others by car or canoe.

If you want to visit all the important sights, the best way is to stay two nights in the area, one for the Mandalay area and one for Mandalay itself. Bagan, also known as Pagan, is the country of the Pagoda because of its wealth of Pagoda. Now, to be clear, when you go to Bagan, you'll see them.

It is the most frequented town in Myanmar and also the most frequently taken photographs, especially the Valley of Sanctuaries, where thousand of churches, palagodas and convents are distributed over forty sq. kilometres. Is pagoda the only attraction in Bagan? From Bagan you can make a full excursion to Mount Popa and Popa Taugkalat Monastery.
