Burma photos: Travels in southern Myanmar

Hpa An

Blogger, photographer & videographer Sara Pretelli recently travelled to Burma with us and brought back some fantastic pictures of the places she visited. Below are a few of our favourites, taken mainly in the lesser-visited regions of southern Burma. You can also watch the beautiful video she shot on her trip by clicking here.

If you're inspired by Sara's travels across Burma, take a look at our Kipling's Burma itinerary, which visits the destinations Sara explored and examines the history of the country through the lens of colonial occupation.
