Burma 2015

Burma (officially Myanmar) is undoubtedly one of the most extraordinary countries of South East Asia.

The cultural isolation caused by a 60 year military regime makes the country a surreal place stuck in the past century. Recent political transition to a (partially open) democracy is now boosting tourism and foreign investments with Yangon quickly growing into a modern Asian capital city.

I have traveled from the remote north of the country through to the quiet and remote Indawgi Lake and made my way south to Mandalay and Bagan, only to head west to the magical and remote Mrauk-oo, in the Rakhine State.
