The land of the golden pagodas

Myanmar was the first Southeast Asian country we visited. That’s why we were pretty nervous prior to the journey, but as we arrived there, we instantly fell in love with this wonderful country and the kindhearted people.

During our time in Myanmar, we had a tight program that took us to different places all over the country: the charming cities Yangon and Mandalay with their surroundings, the beautiful ancient city of Bagan, a short and cooling stay in Kalaw, and the impressive and relaxing Inle Lake.

We compiled a few impressions of our journey in March 2016 and hope we can inspire some of you to visit this great place that has so much to offer…
