Explore Burma

Although still governed by a military regime, Aung San Suu Kyi, the Burmese pro-Democracy leader, gave her blessing to the return of tourism to the country, a move endorsed by the Free Burma movement. As a result, this little-visited country, the largest in South-East Asia, offers an untouched treasure trove of exotic pagodas and temples for visitors to explore.

Burma’s culture is largely a result of heavy Chinese and Indian influences intertwined with local traditions that can be seen throughout the country, from the small villages to the increasingly modern Rangoon. The Irrawaddy River, Burma’s longest, is still the main commercial route through the country linking the main towns Mandalay, Bagan with Rangoon. It has five tributaries, one of which is the little explored but exciting Chindwin.
