    Things to Do in Myanmar

    Cycling is the best means of transport to get a complete feel of the land. Myanmar is a land of tales, architectural marvels and intricate art. On a sightseeing tour, you will be able to view some glittering temples, pagodas like the Kyaukhtatgyi and Shwedagon, architecture of Amarapura and the magnificent Mount Popa.

    Trekking in Kalaw is another activity that is guaranteed to soothe your nerves owing to the pristine air and environment of the region. The views from the top are inspiring.

    Boating in the Irrawaddy River is a riveting experience. It gives you a gist of how trade occurs in these parts, how fishermen make their living and also, an out-of-world firsthand experience of the ethereal beauty of Myanmar. 

    A mostly well-kept secret, Myanmar offers some of the best diving spots in Asia primarily due to its inaccessibility. A good place for experienced divers is the Ranong Province.

    You have to get a typical Burmese foot spa; after all the exploring, you deserve one! Try parlours in Yangon for the real deal.
