I love the itinerary of our Beautiful Burma tour. It encompasses so much of what I love about Myanmar/Burma. Whatever you want to call it, there’s no denying that a visit to this country leaves one changed. Yes, it is full of breathtaking nature, architectural treasures and ancient tradition but it’s the people that will stick with you.

The following are some shots of mine from around the country.

See the temples of Bagan at sunrise is an indescribable experience.

On the Beautiful Burma, we travel often on the great Irrawaddy River, taking in local life along the way.

Staying with the locals is a great way to get a better sense of Burmese hospitality.

This temple caretaker had an enlightened look in her eye. As friendly as they come!

Although not quite as tasteful (arguably) as the country's older sites, the new ones are equally impressive in their own right!

As the sun sets on another day of travel, I sit along the river and write in my journal about all that has come to pass.

These photos hopefully give some impression of the sites that you can experience on our Beautiful Burma tour but they really only scratch the surface. Plenty more to come in the coming months!
