Myanmar, or Burma as it was once known, is a land of culture and ancient beliefs it’s a destination to be absorbed, slowly and without haste. Time is not important here. Wherever you look there’s sure to be a Temple or Pagoda. Indeed, Myanmar’s ‘must see’ sites are a reflection of the country’s soul – exquisite Temples and Pagodas glorifying the Gods and ancient Rulers – no one can fail to be enchanted by the incredible complex on the dusty Bagan plain or Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon. The scenery is outstanding scenery- from windswept mountains ranges to golden gentle shores on the Bay of Bengal. The mighty Ayeyarwaddy (Irrawaddy) River is the lifeblood of the country – a river ‘superhighway’ – perfect for a lazy boat cruise to feel the pulse of the land.
