Myanmar

Myanmar (formerly Burma) is a Southeast Asian nation of more than 100 ethnic groups, bordering India, Bangladesh, China, Laos and Thailand. Myanmar is an epic land where thousand different feelings, landscapes, temples and people rolled into one. Expect to be overwhelmed by radiant cities of gilded temples, enlivened by the unspoiled natural landscape and humbled by the warm smiles of friendly villagers. Even after a lifetime in Myanmar, there would still be more to see, taste, discover and experience. Yangon (formerly Rangoon), the country's largest city, is home to bustling markets, numerous parks and lakes, and the towering, gilded Shwedagon Pagoda, which contains Buddhist relics and dates to the 6th century. Take a trip back in time to discover peaceful pagodas, sacred sites, ancient towns and monasteries of Myanmar.

Best time to visit: Best time to visit Myanmar is from November to February, when temperatures are relatively manageable.
