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.

    I remember that ABC beer being about the most refreshing thing in the world after wandering around in the heat at Bagan all day. This is nice, I’d really like to get back there at some point to explore some of the less traveled areas they’re starting to open up to tourists these days.

  4. Carmen says:

    Great photos – I feel like you really capture the spirit of Myanmar. Would love to visit someday.
