Asia Destinations

From the archives: Burma

March 22, 2015

At the time I went to Burma it wasn’t as popular with travelers yet. Nevertheless, on that trip I went with a tour group, which I’m usually not a big fan of. Although my friends and I were by far the youngest of the group (average age 60+!), it turned out to be the right choice for those who want to see as much as possible in a limited amount of time in a nation where the political situation is tense. But Burma slowly opens up and has the best chances to become the next shooting star of Asia thanks to thousands of golden Pagodas and Buddhas, ancient cities, friendly people of different tribes and unspoiled beaches. I really hope this fascinating country is using its resources wisely and can avoid the negative impacts of mass tourism once it noticed its potential.

    I want to go to my motherland. I didn’t go before they opened tourism because the money would’ve gone to the military junta. I love your pictures. Your photography skills are sick.

      Thank you so much! I know what you mean, I wasn’t sure either where my money was going to… But I think you have much more options these days with smaller family-run businesses etc. However it’s a gorgeous place to visit. I hope you can go there soon and check it out 🙂

    lovely post. Burma still has a strong culture which is not yet influenced and spoilt by the “world culture”.

      That’s why that country had a very special and exotic touch!
