Myanmar is a world treasure because of its warm-hearted, smiling people who make it a truly magical photography destination for capturing candids and compelling portraits of locals.
Even though the people are reason number 1 to visit Myanmar, it’s bursting with cultural heritage and literally thousands of gilded pagodas spread across the country, offering countless opportunities for architectural shots as well. Who wouldn’t love to shoot the sunrise in Bagan overlooking over 2000 ancient temples with dozens of hot-air balloons floating over them?
Myanmar was frozen in time and opened its doors to the world only a few years ago. Now is the right time to go and experience the vibe that may vanish in the next couple of years. The impact of the Western world is evident but hasn’t overrun local traditions – yet.
