Myanmar (Burma) Photography Tour 2018: Yangon – Mrauk-U- Inle Lake- Loikaw

COUNTRY SNAPSHOT
 

Myanmar (also called Burma) is a fascinating country slowly opening to tourism since 2015 after being isolated from the word for almost 50 years. It is a country larger than France sharing borders with Thailand, Bangladesh and China and with a wide variety of landscape: plains, hills and high mountains above 5000 meters on the footsteps of the Himalaya chain. 2000 kilometers of coastline are stretching along the Andaman sea.

Because of all that, and also because it is a country still deeply rooted with traditions, Myanmar is a on bucket list of many photographers. Burmese people are very friendly and very open to be photographed even in the most remote villages. Infrastructure are globally quite poor and distributed very unevenly within the country. The quickest and safest way to travel is by air using one of the four national carrier or by private car.

Although Myanmar is open to tourism, the north of the country is still not accessible to this day. Besides the temples of Bagan and Inle Lake which are the touristic hotspots you will be will privileged to be one of the few exploring the streets of Yangon and the temples of Mrauk-U.
