Capture the timeless beauty of Yangon
With centuries-old pagodas, rustic rural landscapes, and hospitable locals, Myanmar holds an enigmatic attraction for travellers with a taste for the exotic. Jodi Ettenberg, founder of travel blog Legal Nomads, reports being “absolutely blown away by the resilience and beauty of the Burmese people, and inspired by the mountains and rice fields.”
The country’s largest city and crown jewel Yangon boasts the highest number of colonial-era buildings in Southeast Asia. Home to sprawling parks and huge man-made lakes (legacies of its colonial history), Yangon’s historic buildings have also enraptured holiday-makers and travellers both past and present.
