We are making this tour together with our friends - photographers from Myanmar, who have prepared for us lots of interesting locations. We will visit the most exciting and mysterious spots of this extraordinary country. We will take photos of colorful local people who have preserved the millennial traditions of their ancestors, the mysterious mists over the ancient Buddhist temples. We have special staged shooting with the Burmen in their national costumes. It will be an unforgettable trip to one of the most colorful and little-studied countries of South-East Asia, where we will definitely get rich experience and great pictures!

Myanmar is quite unlike any other country in South-East Asia or in the world.

5 features that make Myanmar special and unique.

1. Myanmar has always been known as one of the friendliest countries in the world. It seems that people never stop smiling, and although locals do not usually speak English, they will definitely try to help the foreigner. Locals often share food with foreigners on the road or invite travelers for a cup of tea or for dinner. People sincerely love their country and want to share this love with travelers!

2. Despite the fact that Myanmar is developing very fast, many people are trying to adhere to the traditional lifestyle pattern. Even in large cities, you can meet people in traditional "longyi" clothes. In our tour, we plan to take photos of locals in national costumes among the authentic landscapes and buildings.

3. About 90% of Myanmar's population is Buddhist, and religion plays an important role in local's daily lives. Across the country, you can find pagodas, stupas, monks, and nuns in traditional beautiful bright clothes. There, can always find remarkable and unique stories to capture. At sunset, we will shoot the magical temples of Bagan, monks, and locals, specially invited for shooting.

4. Although Myanmar cuisine is not as well-known as Vietnamese or Thai, however, it is amazing and diverse. This is a remarkable combination of Indian, Chinese, Thai cuisine, which varies from one region to another. There are meals that can only be found in Myanmar, such as fish soup with rice noodles or tea leaf salad with roasted beans. Any you must taste all of them!

5. Myanmar is a huge country with a relatively small population. Here you can find beautiful landscapes: mountains soaring in the fog, endless pristine beaches, rivers winding in the jungle. Even in big cities such as Mandalay, just a little away from the busy streets of the city center, we will see picturesque rice fields and peasants working on them. Fishermen catch fish on their traditional boats as well as their ancestors did thousands of years ago.
