Myanmar Photo Diary

Praise the bank holiday – I’ve finally found the time to upload my Myanmar photos! This is a small selection of photos from each place we visited so you can get a feel for the areas if you’re researching Myanmar or just curious!

To quickly recap: we went to Yangon – busy main city, Bagan – land of temples, Nyaungshwe – the main town nearest to Inle Lake and we ended up in Ngapali – beautiful stretch of coast overlooking the Bay of Bengal.

Please let me know if you’re going and want any advice! What an incredible corner of the world Myanmar is..

UPDATE: My heart and prayers go out to the Rohingya community and the terrible crisis you are enduring. It breaks my heart to know such tragedy is taking place in what seems like such a peaceful country.
