Tourism in Myanmar is still in its infancy, yet this fascinating nation enthralls like no other in Southeast Asia. There's no wonder why. With its glittering stupas, placid rivers, temple-studded plains and – above all – warm, welcoming people, this is a country that it's hard to forget in a hurry.

We've just published our first ever guide to Myanmar, but we're not the only ones captivated. Film-maker Ben McNamara recently toured Myanmar with Intrepid Travel and produced this beautiful, dreamily-shot film.

Myanmar – The Golden Land shows the country through Ben's eyes: "Warm smiles, gentle greetings & beautiful sights." It's our pick of the week.
