Myanmar

Burma in Style

An isolated and remote country unspoiled by mass tourism, Burma is for the adventurous traveler, not the average tourist. Travel the great Ayeyawady River to Kipling's Mandalay, the last of Burma's royal capitals, explore the exotic Inle Lake and, of course, meet the people of this richly varied land, from the northern hill tribes to the amiable Burmese themselves. The river is a source of continuity and hope in a country at odds with itself. As it emerges from isolation, the nation of Myanmar is caught between repression and reform, dark and light. For armchair travelers and adventurers alike, this guide intelligently evokes the magic and mystery of what was once the richest nation in Asia.

Reviews

“...Myanmar has become THE "must-see" destination in Asia and seasoned Burma traveler Caroline Courtauld, who fell in love with the country in the mid-seventies, has written the most definitive guidebook yet! This is the ONLY book you will need since it is packed with information regarding the country's most important historical and architectural sites with easy-to-read maps, as well as practical and useful information on the best hotels, restaurants, and markets. Enchanting and evocatively colorful photos (taken by the author) capture the exquisite, unspoiled scenery and charming demeanor of the country and its people. Also included is background on the fascinating history and culture. This book is a treasure and provides invaluable insight into this fascinating country. ...” - - Nina Simonds, award-winning Asian cookbook author
