MYANMAR, known The Golden Land is the most exotic tourist destination in South East Asia. Myanmar is rich in history , culture and natural attractions. The culture rich country is filled with pagodas, temples, archaeological sites dated back to 2nd century AD. Apart from culture there are many more ecological sites such as snow-peaked mountains, deep forests with abundant flora and fauna, rivers, natural lakes, un-spoilt beaches and more than 800 islands to explore in the South of Myanmar. The most interesting part of Myanmar is the country’s 135 national races. The different way of life, the belief, the costume and the culture of each race are yet to be learned. The most wonderful impression is the hospitality of Myanmar local people.
