normal_Country_BurmaMyanmar is unspoiled Asia at its best. More than any other Asian country, Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, has preserved its cultures and traditions. Visiting this Texas sized country can be like entering a time machine to see what the world was like 50 years ago free of air and noise pollution. Myanmar is a deeply religious Buddhist country and is well known by travelers for its abundance of sights, sounds, and aromas, interesting cultures, diversity of nature and most of all for its charming and friendly people. A kind of magic shrouds the whole land with its tropical plains, the Himalayan Highlands, teak-filled jungles and the Irrawaddy River. Highlights of Myanmar include hilly Inle Lake, the temples of Bagan, the markets of Mandalay and Yangon (Rangoon) with its British colonial architecture juxtaposed with the golden Shwedagon Pagoda. See exotic Myanmar now before modernization changes its character forever.
