myanmar

From the Himalayas to white sand beaches, modern Myanmar is new, untouched, unknown, and unexplored. 

From the Himalayas to white-sand beaches, Myanmar is possibly the most geographically diverse country of Southeast Asia and it is easy to understand why the likes of Kipling and Orwell fell in love with it. 

A spirituality permeates the place, and remains a constant despite the pace of change. Until recently a country shrouded in mystery and secrecy, every discerning traveler is sure to find something to move, touch and inspire him despite the fact that it is still largely new, untouched, unknown, and unexplored.

YANGON

The British wanted Yangon (or Rangoon, as it was called by them) to be the crowning jewel of their empire. Since the country has recently opened up to more international travelers, there has been a gold rush of people to the country. Now that things have settled down it is the ideal time to visit and explore.

BAGAN

Ranked as one of the most inspiring sites in Southeast Asia, any trip to Myanmar must include a stop in Bagan. Across a the Bagan plain, more than 4,000 stupas, temples and monasteries were constructed between the 11th and the 13th centuries. A few more than half remain today for you to explore in wonder at the devotion and labor that went into their construction.
