Burma (Myanmar)
http://www.flyingmonk.com/myanmar.html
Myanmar is one of the most photogenic countries in SE Asia. The Land of Golden Spires smiles to you from every corner and the religious fervor that goes all the way to the ruthless generals makes it shine. Everybody is building gilded stupas hoping, a Buddhist belief, to gain merit and improve their accumulated bad karma.
We visited the temple spotted plane in Bagan built in about 200 years, representing the peak of the Burmese kingdom. Latter, we moved east to Shan State and visited the villages, markets and religious places of the hill-tribes the populate the region around Innle Lake, an area full of traditions where you have the feeling that time stood still. We continued to Mandalay, a 19th century capital city surrounded by the ancient capital cities of Sagaing, Inwa, Amarapura and Mingun. From there we stop in Bago and went to Mt. Kyaiktiyo, the most important pilgrimage place in the country, to visit and pray at the Golden Rock. We ended our tour admiring in awe Shwedagon Paya, the most important religious place in the country, located in the present capital, Yangon (Rangoon).
Watch our video and you'll never forget these places.
