Blessed with time-forgotten villages, sprawling rural regions, fascinating sacred sites and the world-famous Inle Lake, Myanmar has plenty of natural charms, but its people really make the nation stand out. With a genuine warmth and enthusiasm to meet all who visit, the locals will really make you feel special and keep you excited to return again and again.
