Myanmar (or Burma as it was once known) was closed off to the outside world for decades. Run by the military and extremely secretive it recently opened it’s doors to tourism. We decided that as neither of us had been before, it was time to visit the place. We managed to squeeze quite a lot into a month long trip that even included the highly sensitive and militarised Rakhine state. We were definitely not disappointed with our trip! The people, landscapes, temples, beaches and cities amazed and excited us to boiling point.
