I’ve had some incredible adventures over the years but nothing compared to Myanmar! It’s home to the ‘friendliest people in the world’, thousands of ancient pagodas, good food and surprisingly landscapes. The best bit, there are hardly any tourists to contend with…. Or maybe that’s just because I decided to explore Myanmar in low season.
Myanmar (or Burma) is awesome for adventurers! Compared to Thailand there are very little tourists here. This means, if you want to venture off the trail – and c’mon, we all do – it’s pretty easy to do so! Myanmar has a ‘tourist triangle’ you can easily follow, but really, there’s more to see than that! The rural villages, caves, rivers and mountains all call for your adventure!
But to get off the tourist trail – like really off it – and find some hidden gems, you need insider knowledge!
My trip to Myanmar was totally spontaneous! In fact, my visa was approved a few days before I arrived! Of course that also means, I did absolutely no planning at all when I arrived, before I arrived. In fact, I didn’t even really know where anything was! FlyMYA came to my rescue and helped me explore Myanmar’s best bits!
Honestly guys, if you are planning your trip to Myanmar, get in touch with FlyMYA to help you plan your route. Without these guys there’s a high chance I would still be lost on overnight bus – or on the wrong one. – Missed a tonne of incredible caves and I would have never learned to drive a Scooter! They had all the best insider knowledge to get you to unique spots, offering unique adventures.
But don’t just take my word for it, check out these awesome 20 photos to convince you to explore Myanmar with FlyMYA.
As you can see Myanmar is incredible and definitely somewhere to explore sooner rather than later. Sadly as of November 2017 you will no longer be able to climb all the Pagoda’s in Bagan as they are chasing UNESCO protection. This is great for the protection of Bagan, but sad for all us travellers looking for incredible views!
My trip to Myanmar definitely wouldn’t have been so awesome if I had just winged it. I got to see some incredible places and spend the short time I had, off the beaten track.
All I can say is, thank god I decided to explore Myanmar with FlyMya, I wouldn’t have found these beautiful places otherwise.
Have you explored Myanmar?
