There is little doubt that Myanmar, the former British colony once known as Burma, is rapidly changing. Left behind by its Southeast Asian neighbours after over two decades of military rule, Myanmar is now opening up to the world, yet the deep spirituality that remains the centre of daily life is still intact. One can’t help but feel that the longer you stay, the closer you can get to enlightenment.

From the golden pagodas that dominate the skyline in Yangon, and the vast plains of Bagan dotted with thousands of temples and ruins, to the languid waters of Inle Lake where fishermen row boats using their legs, Myanmar is still a mystery to many and an exotic destination that has only recently opened up to world travellers.
