Myanmar: Secrets of the Golden Land
Of all the intriguing places I've explored in Asia, Myanmar easily ranks as my favorite travel experience. Its culture is fascinating, its history deep and complex. And in the wake of decades-long struggles and isolation, it remains a mysterious land unknown to most travelers—with a local population that hungers for connection with the outside world.
As Myanmar finally embraces positive change, we're excited to unveil two new adventures that introduce you to the incredible scenery, richly layered culture and welcoming people of a captivating land. Discover the country's singular beauty by bike or on foot, soaking up the sights and sounds of rarely visited areas, including stunning cultural monuments of an ancient world steeped in Buddhism. And witness firsthand the exciting changes unfolding here, learning what it means for the Burmese people.
