MYANMAR A nation of untouched surroundings and modern skylines This south-east Asian nation of Myanmar (formerly Burma) combines more than 100 ethnicities and is filled with diverse scenery, traditional culture and a rich heritage. View locals in traditional dress and make-up, three-wheeled trishaws in rush-hour traffic and ancient pagodas around every corner, or head to rural Myanmar to enjoy the Shan Hills, Irrawaddy River and Bay of Bengal. In complete contrast, Myanmar’s capital city - Naypyidaw - was built from scratch just over a decade ago, and now has 20-lane highways and a packed skyline of hotels and temples. With areas not yet influenced by Western culture, you can easily discover the country’s original charm.
