  1. Absolutely stunning place! Superb images from a place less traveled.

    Even though it’s our neighboring country I really don’t think many people travel to Myanmar.

    Thanks a lot for sharing your images ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. My main purpose for visiting Myanmar is Bagan . I was tempted to visit Bagan after I saw pictures of the sunrise in Bagan . But even though Myanmar is also one of the Southeast Asian countries such as Indonesia , at the time I need a visa in advance to enter Myanmar . That is why , be less traveled countries in our region though Myanmar has many attractions. And I think the information about travel in this country is limited , so people are not interested in visiting . I visited Myanmar in 2010 when the country issuing the visa on arrival for a few months ๐Ÿ™‚
