Myanmar - My advice - go now!

Wendy Harrison Myanmar

I'd literally jump at the chance to go back to Myanmar (formally known as Burma) again! 

The food is to die for, the beaches are beautiful, and it’s so steeped in history and rich culture. 

Biking amongst some of the 2,200 pagodas in Bagan, visiting the Shwedagon Pagoda coasted with its 27 tons of gold and topped with an eye popping 5,448 diamonds and 2,317 rubies, and exploring Lake Inle by long boat, are just some of the reasons Myanmar quickly became one of my favourite destinations. 

My advice - go now!  Until fairly recently Myanmar has been off limits to wanderlust westerners, but now tourists are starting to flock, curious to explore its majestic temples and unspoilt beaches. 

Pack your bags and hit the road while there’s no McDonald’s or Starbucks in sight.
