Burma / Myanmar

Still known to much of the world as Burma, Myanmar has been off of travellers' destination lists for too long. The country has a collection of stunning Buddhist monuments, bucolic Southeast Asian countryside, and a capital irresistibly unsullied by tourism. Although it's true that it has a troubling past in terms of military rule, the junta is relaxing its restrictions and grassroots tourism boycotts are being lifted. If you're looking for a unique adventure that's definitely off the beaten path, Myanmar is an experience all its own.
