Myanmar, the “Golden Country”! In Southeast Asia and among the mountain ranges, Myanmar – ex-Burma – stretches across 2,000 kilometres of coastline. If you are searching for cheap air tickets to Myanmar, then you’d better get ready for an alternative type of holidays, beyond the usual. The cities of Myanmar are nothing like the technologically advanced metropolises of Asia. The monuments, sights and culture of Myanmar though could offer you a far more satisfying experience. Make your plans, find cheap hotels in Myanmar to organise your accommodation and become, for a while, part of this extraordinary culture, meet the friendly locals and witness the majesty of their Buddhist temples – we bet you’ll be left speechless. Definitely a destination worth travelling to – a lifetime experience!
Myanmar is a beautiful country with a long, impressive and turbulent history. At the beginnings of the 19th century, India’s British colonists settled in the region then named Burma. World War II brought the Japanese and then the British again, until Burma’s independence, in 1948.
Burma, now named Myanmar, has since recently been under military rule; yet not affecting visitors and travellers. Now the freshly elected new regime surely gives a more positive feeling, as Myanmar’s attractions, majestic pagodas and one-of-a-kind cultural experiences will satisfy you to the most. Mandalay, Bagan and Yangon – the capital – are considered by many as some of the world’s best travel destinations.
85% of Myanmar’s population are Buddhists and religion plays a major role in local everyday life.
Visiting Myanmar, you are about to visit an architectural paradise of enormous beauty; the sacred spirit of the traditional performances of the Ramayana you will most certainly encounter somewhere in Myanmar, will lead you to your own personal nirvana.
Once you return from your journey, you will be a whole different person!
Myanmar has a number of airports, but the ones that serve Yangon (15 kilometres from city centre) and Mandalay (35 kilometres from city centre) are the largest. Airport transfers are available exclusively by taxis.
Getting around Myanmar
Public transportation within Myanmar consists of an extensive railway and bus network, connecting many of Myanmar’s cities. Fares depend on the route and minimum taxi fare costs around 2.00MMK (roughly 0.0015€ or $2.00).
Your tour of Myanmar begins at Yangon, the country’s capital. Nature lovers will be impressed by the lakes, splendid parks and extreme diversity of tropical trees and plans they’ll come across in this beautiful city. Before you venture out to explore Yangon’s Buddhist temples and religious sites, please keep in mind to dress accordingly and try to avoid shorts and sleeveless tops.
The Shwedagon Pagoda is the most popular attraction and landmark of Yangon. The ultimate religious site, the golden Shwedagon Pagoda was built 2,500 years ago and inspires universal respect, as the seat of the relics of four previous Buddhas.
Yangon’s second most notable pagodas are the Sule and the Chauk Htat Gyi Pagodas, where you can admire the much-photographed statue of Reclining Buddha. This gigantic work of art measures 65 metres in length and 16 metres in height! The Buddha’s face has a sweet expression, with a white face, blue eye-shadow and red lips. It is said that this is Buddha’s position the moment of his death.
Mandalay is Myanmar’s second largest city. Enjoying the sunset and the panoramic view of the city from the top of Mandalay hill is a must-have experience there. If you have the time, you can also see the palace of the last monarch of Myanmar and a series of beautiful pagodas – the list is endless!
Bagan is your third stop in Myanmar, boasting two major attractions; the Dhammayangyi Temple, built by King Narathou and the Shwezigon Pagoda.
The Shwezigon Pagoda is said to house a sacred tooth of Buddha, which is the exact copy of a tooth relic of Buddha housed in the Kandy Temple, in Sri Lanka.
You can find many restaurants with international and European cuisines, but nothing compares to Myanmar’s local delicacies. Feel free to wander around the colourful open-air markets of Bagan and taste some of the local food – but please be careful not to consume raw vegetables or poorly cooked meat.
The locals in Myanmar are overwhelmingly friendly and welcoming people, always offering a helping hand, valuable advice and a radiant smile to visitors.
As you walk around Myanmar, you may notice some Buddhist monks standing patiently at the sidewalk, holding a plate, head looking down. This is the way they are obliged to earn their food, depending entirely on the generousness of passengers!
Myanmar’s official language is Burmese.
To travel to Myanmar, you need the following documents:
- a passport, valid up to 6 months after your scheduled journey
- a tourist Visa, issued upon arrival at the airport, in Myanmar
