The Golden Land…
Myanmar, or Burma, remains one of the most mysterious and undiscovered destinations in the world, a land of breath-taking beauty and charm. It stretches out from the sparkling Andaman Sea in the south, to the impressive Eastern Himalayan mountain range.
Three mountain chains divide Burma’s three river systems and fertile plains. Much of Myanmar’s environment and ecosystems is preserved. Virgin jungles, snow-capped mountains and pristine beaches, make up for a paradise for the adventurous traveller. Forests cover over 49% of the country and typical wild jungle animals, particularly tigers, leopards and elephants, still roam around, though encounters are unlikely.
Sitting at the crossroads of Asia’s great civilisations of India and China, Myanmar is one of South East Asia’s most diverse countries. It is home to a great variety of ethnic groups (more than 135!) that all contribute to a rich heritage, with spectacular monuments and ancient cities, and a vibrant culture, with elaborate traditions, rituals and festivals.
Wherever you go in Myanmar, there is always a feeling of adventure. But above all, Myanmar offers one of the warmest welcomes in Asia.
