DISCOVER MYANMAR

A mystical country only recently accessible, Myanmar is still both enigmatic and exciting. Bagan is a plain with over a thousand temples, enough, surely for even the most avid culture addict. Curious ‘leg’ fisherman perpetuate an ‘angling’ style not seen anywhere else in the East and Yangon has the largest number of colonial buildings in South East Asia. Mandalay, the last capital of Myanmar is also included. In order to maximize time at each destination there are three short internal flights.
