Don’t be shy to leave your hotel and take to the streets for a little exploring of your own. It is said that no visit to Myanmar is complete without a trip to Shwedagon Pagoda, so venturing out to visit this one is a must. The gleaming gold Shewdagon is dazzling by day but becomes truly alive at night when the whole place is lit up.

Myanmar In A Nutshell

Soak Up The Culture
 
  • One of the major worship sites in Yangon, a visit to Botahtaung, with all its quirky charms and peculiarities is a must. Situated on the bank of the Yangon River, the gilded dome is hollow inside allowing visitors to walk through and admire. The road in front of the shrine beckons visitors in with its vibrant abundance of shops selling fruits, flowers and hand crated items. Walk through the main entrance and discover a glistening hall covered in gold leaf, a walkway laced with glass mosaics and a centrepiece glass case in which Buddha’s hair resides.
     
  • The Ananda temple is one of Bagan’s best known and most stunning creations. One of the first temples to be built in Bagan, the well-preserved master piece is perched just East of the old Bagan city wall. Look out for the golden standing Buddha’s and the visible gilded sikhara- the tower-like spire on top of the pagoda. Don’t forget to take your camera. Also, if your visiting after dark, the Ananda is lit up by spotlights creating a mystical atmosphere.
     
Tastes to Try
 
  • Shwe Sa Bwe in Yangon is a stylishly decorated house with an idyllic garden just north of the beautiful Inya Lake. Created by European chefs, expect a delicious menu of French classics with a Burmese twist. The short set menus changes weekly so you can always prepare for apleasant surprise. Dine al fresco and relish the verdant surroundings as you tuck into salmon fillet in a Shan masala sauce. Also, the kitchen offers classes so don’t be afraid to get your hands messy.
     
  • Boasting the best riverside setting in New Bagan, Sunset Garden offers a scenic culinary affair with top-notch views. Kick back for a sundowner before tucking into an array of tasty dishes. A flavour explosion is on its way as this hearty menu offers a selection of Burmese, Chinese, Thai and international favourites.

 
Adventure Awaits 

 
  • One of the world's greatest archaeological sites, Myanmar is filled with Buddhist temples, pagodas, palaces and monasteries and makes for great adventures. There are plenty of excursions on offer so make sure you roam outside of your resort and embark on discovery. After exploring the bustling market head out of town and take a cruise along the scenic river Irrawaddy or kayak among the floating markets and villages of Inle Lake.
     
  • Take a guided trek through the wildering forests or embark on an adventurous cycle journey and experience Myanmar's striking landscapes by bike.
     
  • Positioned on the Bay of Bengal coast in Rakhine State, Ngapali beach_ arguably the best beach in Myanmar, is a great spot to snorkel in, so mask up and get ready for an underwater extravaganza. If you want to go further out and swim deep, opt for a Ngapali beach day trip and sail out across the sapphire waters. To get the best imaginable vistas of Ngapali and the surrounding coastline, take to the skies in a hot air balloon.
