Burma (Myanmar) is opening up to tourism rapidly, so now is the time to visit in order to discover the innocent and un-spoilt beauty of this southeast Asian country. A holiday in Burma will feel like time travel into the past, since the heavy-handed influence of the west is yet to totally take over. Known fondly by travellers as ‘The Golden Land’ due to its thousands of golden pagodas that dot the horizon, Burma maintains a modest, Buddhist culture that hints at what the wider region may have been like prior to mass tourism. And a holiday in Burma will almost certainly have you longing for a similarly simple way of life, happily hidden away from the distractions of modern life.
