Burma has always been such a superb destination in terms of what you see and do. From the pagodas of Bagan, through to the authentic charm of the rural heartlands and the laid-back delights of Inle Lake, Burma offers such variety. Tourism was in its infancy, but in recent years they have upped their game and new hotels have opened alongside exclusive experiences that you simply can’t find elsewhere. Put it all together and you have quite the immersive trip, seeing the authentic side of Burma, yet staying somewhere incredibly comfortable at night.
