Change down a gear in sleepy, spiritual, Myanmar
As a relatively new arrival on the tourist map, travelling in Myanmar feels like stepping back in time. With its multitude of distinct ethnic groups, traditional customs and dress are very much in evidence in this largely rural nation of small-scale farms and rice paddies. Buddhism is the main religion and sacred temples and glittering pagodas are dotted across the verdant landscapes. You’ll find the people calm, engaging and eager to welcome you to their magical land. Don’t be surprised if you’re invited in for tea – a remnant of British colonial rule that is still very much embraced.
