Myanmar, also known as Burma, is finally flinging open its doors after many years of political and security issues.
Myanmar is actually the largest of all the countries in mainland Southeast Asia and so it stands to reason that there is much to see and do here, with a range of different experiences including mountains, jungles, ancient temples, strips of untouched coastline, and more.
Top picks in Myanmar
Not be missed is a trip to Yangon which is a mix of pulsating streets mixed with gorgeous colonial architecture and glittering temples, or you can head to the northern capital of Mandalay which has a more laid back feeling that lends itself to wandering around temples and browsing in local markets.
If cities are not your thing then moving on to Bagan is a good choice, where you can spend days or weeks exploring over 2,000 temples set against the majestic Ayeyarwady River.
