Top Reasons to Go to Myanmar

Explore pagodas: Slip off your shoes and stare slack-jawed at Bagan's staggering spread of 2,000-plus 11th- and 12th-century pagodas.

Sweat it out: Spicy curries, giant chili-soaked prawns, and piquant salads help you beat the heat.

Travel back in time: The turn-of-the-century colonial buildings that line Yangon's Strand Road stand just as they did during British rule.

Get in early: China opened up rapidly and became Disneyfied, and many fear the same will happen in Myanmar.

Know kindness: Burmese locals will welcome you warmly; some might even invite you into their homes.
