As Burma reopens, visitors are discovering a wealth of new experiences and attractions from little-known historic sites to traditional villages and remarkably friendly people. Explore the bustling streets of Yangon with its Chinese and Indian influences and crumbling colonial architecture, board a wooden canoe on Inle Lake and watch the sun set behind the stilted houses and gardens of the Intha people, or visit Bagan for a hot air balloon flight over a sea of ancient temples. Alternatively, sail around the 800 sparsely-populated islands of the Mergui Archipelago to experience life in some of its remote villages.
