A holiday stay at Myanmar would be incomplete if you don’t visit some of its amazing ancient cities. Before Myanmar was a colony it had an imperial system, and many of the ruins of the imperial cities are still in existence. In cities such as Mrauk U and Bagan you will be able to see many ruins of pagodas, living quarters, ancient offices and other landmarks dating back to 7th Century. These cities are archeologically and historically of extreme value, and thus warrant a visit. Another highlight of Myanmar are the nature trails of Kengtung, Pyin Oo Lwin and Putao, which are known for their beautiful lakes and luscious scenery. Golden sandy beaches in Ngapali and Mergui are also immensely popular amongst tourists. In addition to this, try and visit some of the local mamarkets or partake in cultural and religious festivals such as the Thingyan New Year Festival, the Festival of Lights, and the Regatta Festival. With all these features, Myanmar is a recommendable destination for a holiday stay.
