The continent of Asia is an exciting treasure trove offering a plethora of opportunities for exploring cultures that are unique and different. Nonetheless, many parts of Asia and the countries which define those parts have some commonality that can be observed by the average traveller – Burma however, breaks that mould. Each time you visit Burma, it is like visiting a new nation altogether.

Yangon, the nation’s largest city is bustling with energy like any metropolis yet it preserves a sense of serenity and spirituality which eludes many cities. The Shwedagon Paya adorned with 27 metric tons of gold leaf is a masterpiece to behold. One look at the temple and you are bound to keep staring before you become mesmorised by the beauty and sheer magnificence of this structure. The temple holds a deep historical significance – if you’re interested in getting to know the tale of Tapussa and Balika, tour guides are available to guide you through this spectacular site. It is definitely a tale to explore and will act as an introduction to the amazing historical events that Burma holds.

The temple town of Bagan is yet another chapter in the story of Burma, the Ananda Pahto is a fine specimen of Bagan temple architecture, and it is decorated with several Buddha statues which are unlike the ones that are found in other parts of South East Asia. 

In Sagaing, the skyline is what strikes the most to a first time visitor; unlike skyscrapers or highrise modern architecture, gold pagodas dominate the skyline. Take a stroll down the town to immerse in this unique experience which is a world of its own. The Buddhist heritage of Burma out-shines other flavours of this city because it dominates the theme of the location. If you’re interested in getting to know more about the historical flavour of this town, a trip to the Buddha Museum is a must to seek enlightenment about the town itself. 

To witness Burma in all its glory, plan a visit to the Inle Lake which holds the Buddhist temples above its surface and gives an insight into traditional Burmese life. A ride across the lake will calm your senses and may even lead you to reflect the sheer majesty of the journey that you’ve had in the country, it is surely the icing on the cake and the perfect adios to this unique, pure and serene land which depicts Buddhism and its history in all its glory.

This 5-day itinerary is sure to take you through the highlights of Burma.
