TRAVEL TO MYANMAR…

IN A NUTSHELL

Due to national political issues, the influx of travelers in this diverse and exciting country has slowed down dramatically. Understandably so, many visitors have doubts and insecurities about traveling to Myanmar.

A Quebec travel consultant whom I contracted to help me draw out my solo journey in India, quickly recognized my desire to visit a country with a preserved culture and traditions and not overturned by tourism, strongly recommended I visit Myanmar. Furthermore, he thought it prove to be a smooth integration before my next leg of the journey into Northern India. He was right.

From Yangon the capital, I traveled southwards to Hpa-An, always staying within the suggested tourist ”white zones”, before heading to the magnificent Inle Lake region.

Mandalay got skipped this time around while I headed to the infamous and mystical Bagan. I couldn’t get enough of the sunrise skies filled with hot air balloons floating above the pagodas and temples — memories of a lifetime.

I loved my 3-week spent in Myanmar, I felt safe at all time and can’t wait to return and explore more of this charming country.

Heres a glimpse at the Burmese culture which is set in kind and giving principles. As I kept noticing many water recipient under trees in many different parts of the country, I, of course, had to inquire why and for whom these were meant for.  Turns out its an old tradition to keep water in the shade, usually in clay pots, for passing travellers to serve themselves as they wish and quench their thirst while passing by. ☄️  #Myanmar is over 85% Buddist and its teachings and values can be felt in everyday life. Even in the busy Yangon city center, you can spot many commercial plastic water jugs for this purpose, such a generous and selfless tradition.  I love you Myanmar, I cant believe its already time to move on. I promise to be back soon.🙏Image attachmentImage attachment
Smiles that says it all. As soon as you make contact with the Burmese, they light up with these beautiful smiles.⁣
