    The oceans and seas around the Asian continent couldn’t be better for a relaxing cruise, if you want to fit in some island hopping into your holiday too. But as fun as it is to wander the high seas around Asia on a luxury boat, making your way into the continent on one of its many river can afford you some similarly unforgettable experiences.

    Many rivers on the vast Asian continent are so beautiful that they have become a thing of legends, and sailing on them for a couple of weeks will not only give you an eyefull of lovely landscapes, but it will allow you to learn a thing or two about the country’s culture as well. Here are some of the best river cruises in Asia for those who like to sail.

  • Responsible travel in Myanmar

    Myanmar with its beautiful architecture

    There are countless reasons to visit Myanmar, formerly called Burma. There are the majestic ruins of Bagan to consider, the surreal sight of Kyaiktiyo Pagoda, a golden rock teetering on the edge of an abyss, you can shop for souvenirs in Mandalay and row on Inle Lake, and just let yourself drown in the mix of sights, smells, tastes and stories.

    But as alluring as all this might sound, Myanmar is also known for its human rights abuses, and a large portion of the international community (including hardcore travelers) choose to boycott the country despite its huge magnetism.

    Whether or not you decide to visit Myanmar is a question of personal principles, but if the attractions of the country prove to be too much to resist, responsible travel in Myanmar is not impossible, and here are some tips that might come in handy.

  • The most amazing tourist destinations in Myanmar

    Myanmar

    Myanmar

    Probably for many people, the first things that spring to mind when it comes to Myanmar, otherwise known as Burma, are mostly on the negative side: a repressive government that determined economic sanctions from other countries, brutally repressed rebellions and even a Nobel Prize for Peace winner placed under house arrest for years.

    Myanmar projects a pretty bleak picture for outsiders, but that is not what strikes first time visitors to the country. As soon as you land in Myanmar, you will notice how extraordinarily diverse it is, the loving way in which traditional culture is preserved, the pride people take in their historical monuments, and how incredibly friendly they are. Myanmar is an awe-inspiring country, so take a chance and visit some of the most amazing tourist destinations in Myanmar.

  • Amazing places: Bagan, Myanmar

    Myanmar

    Myanmar

    Myanmar has no shortage of fascinating cultural and religious sights, but the ancient region of Bagan, in Central Myanmar, takes the cake in every respect. Bagan has a rich history, and because of its significance in the past, several stupas and temples have been erected in the area.

    In the golden age of Bagan, the sounds of bells and the chanting of monks filled the pagodas, but even now, when most of the inhabitants of the area have been relocated to the village of New Bagan, the sights of the ancient buildings are every bit as impressive as the pyramids in Egypt or other similar attractions. So here’s a short description of one of the world’s most amazing places: Bagan, Myanmar.
