Modern thrills and old-school frills co-exist in multicultural Myanmar…
Broaden horizons both geographical and cultural at Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, which borders India, Bangladesh, China, Laos and Thailand, and encompasses more than 100 ethnic groups. Myanmar’s largest city, Yangon (formerly Rangoon), is home to lush lakes, parks and vibrant markets. Though Yangon is developing and modernising fast (as evidenced by the new restaurants, bars and boutiques mushrooming up within the city’s tangle of streets), its pace remains deliciously relaxed.
Don’t miss the city’s mighty monument and golden child, Shwedagon Paya: a majestic gilded Buddhist stupa that’s also known as the Great Dagon Pagoda and the Golden Pagoda. The stupa contains Buddhist relics, including strands of the Buddha’s hair.
In Yangon, you can also admire old government buildings, which still bear impressions of Victorian England. Take to the waters on a cruise: drop by Botahtaung Jetty in the heart of the old town. Hop on board the Strand Cruise on the Irrawaddy River: the vessel comes equipped with handy butlers and swish vintage interiors that riff nostalgically on bygone eras – with added mod cons, natch.
