Visiting Myanmar

Where to go? 

Myanmar seems to be the least developed among Southeast Asian countries, especially in terms of public infrastructure and transportation. However, this nation has its own extraordinary temptation which still attracts global tourists. If you are an adventurous one or want to escape from the hustle and bustle of big cities, Myanmar is a “wonderland” for you with many obscured places. For example, Bagan is one of Myanmar's unmissable sights, and it is truly unique to the country. Home to more than 1,000 Buddhist Temples, sprawled across a grassy plain, it's one of the largest religious complexes in the world. Visitors can explore the mass of monuments by bicycle, e-bike or horse and cart. Alternatively, those looking for the best view should take to the skies on a sunrise or sunset hot air balloon ride. In case you want to bask into the sunrise and know more about local life, you can pay a visit to the U Bein Bridge. This spectacular bridge is located in the south of Mandalay, spanning the Taungthaman Lake for a whopping 1.2km. Built around 1850, it is believed to be the world's oldest and longest teak bridge. The teak wood was once part of the Royal Palace in Mandalay but was turned into a bridge by the mayor, U Bein. The columns were no longer needed so they found a new home for them, helping the common people across Taungthaman Lake. As you cross the rickety wooden panels, you'll spot the bobbing heads of local fisherman in between the paddle boats filled with tourists. Nothing could be quite as magical as sunset view at the longest and oldest wooden teak bridge in the world. Sound great, right? One word to note that if you decide to have Myanmar family tour this year, the time between October and March is quite ideal with cool weather.
