One of the most satisfying things about travel is when a destination actually ends up exceeding your already high expectations. Myanmar is a prime example. I recently finished up a two week trip to the Golden Land and am already finding myself missing the friendly people, delicious food and endless supply of pagodas and temples. On top of it all, the sunrises and sunsets were really like no other I have witnessed. I won’t ramble on too much about my love for Myanmar, but I will say that another great thing I noted was the lack of tourists as of yet. I’ll let these photographs speak for themselves and hopefully they can inspire you to get over to Myanmar and explore this peaceful part of the world before hoards of tourists take over!
