    Kipling wrote “It is quite unlike any place you know about” when he spoke of Myanmar, otherwise known as Burma. And what he said more than a century ago still holds true today. Situated in the Bay of Bengal with borders along Bangladesh, India, China, Laos, and Thailand, Myanmar is the largest country in Southeast Asia. An archaeological paradise with literally hundreds, if not thousands, of ancient ruins in Bagan, amid lush tropical settings, Myanmar has become less difficult in recent years for Westerners to access due to the reforms presently being carried out by a quasi-civilian government which took over the country in 2010. Therefore, getting into the country is relatively easy nowadays. However, visas must be obtained in advance, and due to the nature of the country some portions of Myanmar are off-limits to visitors, and require special visas in order to enter. And while technically those visas are obtainable by anyone, the time it takes for them to be approved generally means that you'll realistically never see those sections.

    However, travelers should not be daunted by this. The central heartland of the country is generally open to travel, although the country is best suited for adventuresome travelers who are familiar with a backpack, a pair of hiking boots, and questionable accommodations and transportation. A poor country in terms of economic stability, Myanmar is nevertheless a treasure trove of beauty well worth seeing if you don't mind dealing with a little bit of underdeveloped infrastructure. Also, there are very few ATMs in the country, so you will need to bring enough cash with you to last your entire journey. As of May 2013 there are more ATMs available in-country, especially at Yangon and Mandalay international airports.

    One of the most amazing sights in Myanmar is Inle Lake, with its floating villages gardens. However, equally amazing is Mandalay, the former capital of Burma, with its famous bridge and amazing views, or Yangon, the former capital of the country, where the magnificent Shwedagon Paya dazzles viewers with its splendor. Outside of the cities, sights such as the sacred rock of Kyaikitiyo or the town of Kalaw, headquarters for backpackers, offer a unique glimpse into a culture that has largely remained the same for the past few hundred years.

    Due to the current huge increase of tourists coming into the country, travelers are now advised to make hotel accommodations well in advance.

      • Mandalay
        As the former capital of Myanmar in 1861, Mandalay was one of the last places which retained its king until the arrival of the British in 1885. Nowadays, Mandalay is well known for retaining a strong monk population and being the home of the Mahamuni Paya, arguably the country’s most famous gold Budddha statue.

        Mandalay’s landscape also offers breathtaking views, especially for those who trek up Mandalay Hill. As Mandalay attracts foreign investors and gem traders, the city has a modern and progressive atmosphere to it.

        Although Mandalay isn’t as old as Bagan, it is still Myanmar’s second largest city and serves as an excellent example of traditional Myanmar culture coexisting with modern trends.
