Normally, Myanmar people mix a small amount of water into the powder, and then use brush to draw on their face. Here, you will find interesting to look at girls with the images of rabbits and other animals on their cheeks.

Inle Lake

Inle Lake is the most widely known for its fishermen with unique fishing methods- rowing with only one leg. Although in recent years, tourism in the region has developed, but it still retains its inherent natural beauty. Visiting Inle Lake, you will experience on floating houses on the river, a perfect place for you to immerse into the magic beauty of nature.

Beautiful beaches

Myanmar has a coastline stretching over 2,000 km which is untapped, so beaches here almost remain its inherent untouched beauty. Travelling to Myanmar, nothing is more interesting than resting on charming beaches of Bengal Bay, especially Ngapali beach- just 45 minute drive from Yangon.

Delicious cuisines

In spite of the heavy influence by the cuisine of India, China, Thailand and the culinary culture of many ethnic minorities, Myanmar dishes still feature its own attractiveness. Not only delicious, Myanmar dishes are subtle in the way of processing and especially, it is very cheap. If you have the opportunity to go to Yangon or Bagan, take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy unique street foods such as tea and flatbread, Nangyi thoke, samosa salad, Shan noodles, barbecue and aromatic curry rice.

The hard-to-resist beauty of Mandalay

Located not far from Bagan and it only takes you about 30 minute fly to reach Mandalay. This is a city of chaos, smoke and dust, but when you leave the bustling downtown area to visit other spectacular architectural works, you will really understand the beauty of the land which has once served as the ancient capital of the country of golden temples.

Pilgrimage in the Buddhism land and breathe fresh air

Reaching the top of Kyaikhtiyo temple (also known as the Golden Rock - Gold Mountain Temple) and enjoying stunning views from the top of the mountain is also a new experience. Golden Rock is famous for its appearance and gilded surface. Buddhists from all over the country come here to pay homage, meditate and overlook the valley below.
