This long isolated country, while still struggling with political reform, dominates the geography of Southeast Asia. For intrepid travelers, the opportunity exists to pull back the curtain and explore the Orient of yesteryear. Beautifully preserved colonial buildings, vibrant street scenes and the ancient city of Bagan, with the densest concentration of temples in Asia, offer something for every traveler. One of life’s true great pleasures is visiting the country’s myriad of impressive landscapes with hardly a fellow traveler in sight.
