Closed off to the world for centuries, Myanmar (Burma) has now risen to the top of many travel destination lists and is now as warm and welcoming as the ruling military junta were harsh and oppressive. Megan McCormick dives into the heart of the country to get the low down.
Megan starts her journey in Yangon, then visits popular Inle Lake. She takes a bumpy train journey to Mandalay and Bagan which was once capital of the Kingdom that fully integrated Buddhism into the country. Leaving Mandalay, Megan heads far from the main tourist destinations and into the Chin State. Megan then heads to Rakhine State where, after a brief visit to the town of Thandwe, she reaches her final stop and the ultimate beach destination, Ngapali Beach.
Along the way:
- Explore Bagan by horse & carriage
- Meet the tattooed women of Chin State
- Learn about the tribal rivalries of Shan State
