Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) is a gorgeous country, it’s culturally diverse and nowhere near as toursity as its South East Asian counterparts. Whilst I was travelling an another Asian backpacking trip in July/August 2017, I decided to shorten my stay in Sri Lanka so that I could spend some time in Myanmar before meeting up with my friends in Cambodia. I had about 8 days in total to explore the country of Myanmar, and while I was hesitant at first as to how much I’d actually get to see during that time, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I did get to see, thanks to some careful planning prior to arriving.
During my stay in Myanmar I visited Yangon, Inle Lake, Bagan, and Mandalay.
