Myanmar, formerly Burma is slowly but surely transforming into a tourist destination. Tourists from all over the world are flocking to the country, thanks to its old world charm and originality of experience that is hard to be found in South East Asia.
This country still retains much of its culture and has not yet yielded to commercialization.
The temples and pagodas, street art and colonial buildings, cheap transport and food are a huge draw for tourists looking for a unique holiday on a budget. That said, Myanmar has a whole lot of UNESCO World Heritage sites too.
Myanmar has many things going for it – beginning with its affordability. It caters to travelers of all budgets and thereby affords the possibility of long term travel. There are many UNESCO heritage sites here and mountain top pagodas that make for interesting hikes. The food is very simple and locally produced but it will leave you asking for more.
