Reasons To Visit Myanmar

Boasting an incredibly rich and diverse history and cultural heritage, Myanmar is also a place of stunning natural beauty with many exciting opportunities for adventurous travelers. Many of the attractions in the country are centered on its wide collection of temples and religious sites such as the popular ancient site of Bagan or the 2,000 year old Shwedagon Pagoda. The biggest city and former capital of Myanmar is Yangon, a thriving city which also has a sacred spiritual side with its many pagodas and temples. Outside of its cities there are many beautiful beaches along its coast, while the waters off the country are said to be the finest in the region for scuba-diving.
