Isolated from the rest of the world for more than three decades, Myanmar (also known as Burma) is located in Southeast Asia and bordered by China, Thailand, India, Laos and Bangladesh. Burma remains one of the most mysterious and undiscovered destinations in the world and offers all the traditional delights of Asia: virgin jungles, snow-capped mountains, pristine beaches and ancient cities. Its coastline has 1,930 kilometers (1,200 mi) along the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea. Myanmar’s culture is a result of heavy Indian influences intertwined with local traditions and some Chinese influences; this can be seen in the various stupas and temples throughout the country. Most Burmese people are incredibly friendly and polite, and will do their best to make you feel welcome in their country.

Myanmar is spectacular!

Myanmar is spectacular!
A group of 6 intrepid travelers just traveled through Myanmar together and had a blast! Here's Judy to tell us a little bit about it: "We loved our trip. Myanmar is a wonderful place to visit. The people are kind, inquisitive, helpful and beautiful. The food is amazing. The country is spectacular. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to discover a country unspoiled by tourists. But that will only last a couple of more years, so get there quickly!" On accommodations: "I loved the Strand - I've stayed at Raffles in Singapore a couple of times, and this was definitely reminiscent. The hotel in Kalaw was lovely, with wonderful food. We had a Burmese meal the first night and a western meal the second. The western food suffered in comparison!" Favorite moments: "I think my favorite thing was the breakfast in the local tea shop. That was so much...

All Around Asia

1000-lighting-group-at-Saturday-corner
Carla and Stan took a meandering and adventurous custom trip through Vietnam, Myanmar,  Malaysia, and Singapore. They traveled from North to South In Vietnam , cycling through the old quarter of Hanoi, kayaking in Halong Bay, and visiting the Cu Chi tunnels in Ho Chi Minh. From there, they flew to the mystical land of Myanmar where they wandered the ancient temples of Bagan, bathed with elephants in the jungles of Kalaw, and toured the unique biosphere of Inle Lake by boat. Then it was off to sample the tastes of Malaysia with an emphasis on beach time on the UNESCO island of Langkawi. A final stop at the city-state of Singapore brought their 31-day trip to an end although it will remain an inspiration for all of us planning trips to Asia .  Hear it from Carla and Stan: " It was another amazing adventure from Wildland and we...
