Myanmar (formerly Burma) is a Southeast Asian country bordering India, Bangladesh, China, Laos and Thailand. Yangon, the country’s largest city, is home to bustling markets, numerous parks and gilded Shwedagon Pagoda. Inle Lake is one of the must-visit places in Myanmar where you can watch and learn some of their traditional ways of fishing and hand crafts. Bagan historic town is home to more than 2,200 temples. Mandalay, the second largest city in Myanmar, was established in 1857 and has been famed by many literary works. The fascinating golden rock of Kyaik Hti Yoe and its pagoda containing the Buddha’s hair, is yet another must, but there are other places that are worth visiting, to name a few: Amarapura, Bago, Inthein, Irawadi, Mingun, Pondaw, U-Bein.
