Myanmar is a country whose
culture remains intact.

This can be attributed to its location, sandwiched between China, Thailand and India, and its coastline along the Andaman Sea and the Bay of Bengal. Myanmar, once known as Burma, has remained uninfluenced by ethnic customs such as their traditional weaving patterns and dress.



Visit the remote village of Homalin for the Naga Festival. Discover the women with the tattooed faces in the Chin Province. Sail throught he Myeik Archipelago or cruise the Awerwaddy River. Trek off the beaten path in Putao, Kengtung or Kalaw. See 2000 temples which dot the landscape around Bagan via a hot air balloon. Myanmar is a world in itself waiting to be discovered.
