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.
