Myanmar as a tour and holiday destination
Myanmar is experiencing an explosion of interest now that the once-restrictive government has thrown open the doors of the country to international development. Situated at the crossroads in Southeast Asia between China, India, and Thailand, Myanmar represents an incredible opportunity for tours while on holiday. Exotic and untouched tropical wilderness is just one of the many prime attractions drawing in tourists to this new travel hotspot. Myanmar represents one of the last untouched territories left on the globe. Travel to the country today is a rare chance to experience a country whose doors are just beginning to open for the first time.
Must-visit places in Myanmar
Myanmar is best suited for the adventurous traveller. The country’s landscape is dominated by its religious culture. Many beautiful and incredible religious sites number among the top attractions. Temples and pagodas inspire wonder like Kyaiktiyo, a breathtaking pagoda built on a giant boulder that was gilded with gold, barely balanced at the edge of the hill. Bagan, too, is a major holiday attraction. It is today considered one of the best architectural sites in Southeast Asia. Along Myanmar’s coast are also many still-pristine beaches. Ngapali Beach extends nearly two miles with its powdery white sand and ubiquitous coconut trees. Ngwe Saung Beach is located on the Bay of Bengal and features clear blue water and untouched natural beauty. Travel from religious sites in the interior to the beaches on the coast is made relatively simple by inexpensive public transportation.
Best time to visit Myanmar
The time to go on holiday to Myanmar is during the cool season between November and February. Guided tours of the country’s many attractions are most likely to be offered during this period. Today the country is booming. Now is the time to enjoy Myanmar’s incredible natural beauty.
