Amazing, surreal, largely untouched by modernity there are a ton of ways to describe Burma (also known as Myanmar), but its better to visit and see for yourself. Using Thailand as a jumping off point, take two weeks to walk, hike, and roam all over the region, from the Bagan temples and ruins to the rice paddies and rural hilltribes. And with two flights included, youll avoid long travel days and ensure you get the most out of your cultural immersion in different Burmese towns. Just trust us when we say you need to experience the wonder and beauty of Burma for yourself at least once in your life. Make that time now right now.
