Myanmar’s tourism star is on the rise after a record year
January 19, 2015 - 0 Comments - Casey Hynes

The tourism industry has been booming recently, thanks to increased flights, ease of travel, and the government’s increasingly open attitude toward the international community.

FOR a taste of rural Burma and the opportunity to enjoy homestays in villages along the way, head to Shan State in the country’s northeast. With rolling hills, few roads and welcoming locals, it’s an experience not to be forgotten.

TRUNDLING around on Yangon’s circular train is a great way to take in the sights, sounds, smells and people of the city. While somewhat of a snail’s pace it provides a great patchwork experience of all aspects of life in Yangon from the crush and hurry of the inner city to the rural areas on…>
