Due to the glittering pagodas everywhere, Myanmar is widely known as “The
Golden Land” to visitors. In fact, golden pagodas are only one of many things visitors

Himalayan snow-capped mountains, thick tropical forests, magnificent
lakes, magical and mighty rivers, clean virgin beaches, exotic cultures of various ethnic groups, and incredible fine arts and
handicrafts. The warm and friendly smiles of its openhearted people
enhance Myanmar as an even more attractive destination.
Myanmar, formerly known
as Burma, is an exotic, unspoiled travel destination and the largest
country in the Southeast Asian peninsula. It borders Bangladesh, India, China, Laos and Thailand.
The original meaning of
“Myanmar” is "active and strong," but “Myanmar” represents the union of
different ethnic races with their own languages and dialects such as
Kachin, Kayah, Kayin, Chin, Bamar, Mon, Rakhine and Shan. They are all descendents of one of the three major migrant groupt: the Mon-Khmers, the
Tibeto-Burman and the Thai-Shan.
After decades of
self-isolation, the country’s culture, ecology and world-class
archaeological sites are almost untouched and unspoiled. The country has
more than one hundred different ethnic groups still maintaining their
traditional cultures, and they are the real treasure of Myanmar.
Myanmar is still
mysterious, untouched, unspoiled and has a lot to discover.
Discover Myanmar's breathtaking beauty, the warmth and
charm of its people, and everything else this fascinating country has to offer.
