Myanmar is a fascinating country. For years it’s been off the beaten tourist track. Now it’s opened up and welcoming travelers . In Myanmar you’ll find it’s the warmth and curiosity of the people that will leave you with the best memories.
But there’s plenty to see, too. My short trip led me only to Yangon and Bagan, but it gave me a good taste of the country.
