Myanmar (Burma) is easily accessible from nearby countries and there has never been a better time to visit. Tourism is relatively new to Myanmar as it has been difficult and un-safe to visit due to the military regime but in recent years this has all changed since the release of Aung San Suu from house arrest. The future is really looking bright for the nation and the people who live there. With One World 365 you can discover a beautiful country which is still not over populated with tourists.

Looking to go travelling or backpacking in Myanmar? These are some highlights of Burma you might want to see:
Bagan is one of the most iconic and stunning places in the whole of Asia, expect hundreds of Buddhist temples scattered across a vast space. The view, and pictures you will get will be incredible. We highly recommend either sunrise or sunset, you can also ride a hot-air balloon to get a better view from above.
Inle Lake is undoubtably one of the highlights of Asia which is often described as Heaven on earth. There is the option to walk, cano or cycle your way around the lake where you can see floating farms and little villages surrounding the lake.
Yangon, formerly known as Rangoon, is a great city to explore. There are lots of culutral ights and also pretty colonial buildings due to being an ex British colony. Places you must visit include Singuttara Hill and Shwedagon Pagoda.
