Only just emerging after decades of isolation, Myanmar is the most unspoiled destination in Southeast Asia. From the time-warped, colonial-era townscape of former capital Yangon to the deserted tropical beaches of the newly accessible far south, things are moving fast – visit now before it all changes. Use our map of Myanmar below to start planning your trip to this timeless and endlessly varied country.

Drift down the mighty Ayeyarwaddy River on a slow boat and get a taste of life in the provinces.
