Myanmar is a country with a rich history and unique culture. Myanmar is more becoming must see destination in Southeast Asia and have a lot to offered by an incredible array of tourist sights, ancient ruins, fascinating hill tribes, untouched places, peaceful resorts, legions of monks, and a nation of multiple ethnic groups.

In modern life can be lived in digital world and it makes us wish for a break to get a bit old-fashioned, take a trip back to explore wildlife and environment, soaking the stress away. So, let me suggest to ten destinations in 2019 where you shouldn’t miss out in Myanmar.



Bagan in central Burma is one of the world’s greatest archeological sites.It is  the largest and densest concentration of Buddhist temples, pagodas, stupas and ruins in the world with many dating from the 11th and 12th centuries. The shape and construction of each building is highly significant in Buddhism with each component part taking on spiritual meaning. Most of traveler knows Bagan is places have to go when they reach in Myanmar.



The gorgeous and remote Myeik Archipelago lies in the Andaman Sea off the coast of southern Myanmar.With  hite sandy beaches, sunsets that take your breath away, and emerald-green waters surrounding an endless stream of lonely islands are only a part of what makes the Myeik Archipelago a special place. It is features 800 stunning islands in one of the most remote places in the world. It is not only explore the scenery (under water or over water) that makes the Myeik Archipelago such a fascinating place to visit: the Moken people, also known as the Salone or sea gypsies, are one of the most distinct of Myanmar’s many ethnic groups, living a nomadic, sea-based life here. Having adapted themselves to the water over many hundreds of years, they are the masters of free diving, being able to focus their vision under water and hold their breath far longer than most humans can.


Khakaborazi National Park

Khakaborazi Park is a national park of Burma. It is located in Naungmung Township in Kachin State. It surrounds Hkakabo Razi, the highest peak in Burma. (It is the highest mountain in Myanmar with 29,698 feet in height and other significantly beautiful scenery, conserve watersheds in the area where the Ayeyarwady River originates.) 

 You can explore there, natural forests and wildlife in the northern part of Myanmar. But you have to take permission from regional government for entry. Don’t confuse for that, it is easy and simple step. 

There is no one who doesn’t like ecotourism for nowadays. So, if you would like to feel the nature, deeply. As my opinion, Khakaborazi National Park is the best destination for 2019.  


Inle Lake

Inle Lake  located in the Nyaungshwe Township of Taunggyi District of Shan State, part of Shan Hills in Myanmar (Burma). It is the second largest lake in Myanmar. There you can meet small ethnic group.

The people of Inle Lake (called Intha), some 70,000 of them, live in four cities bordering the lake, in numerous small villages along the lake's shores, and on the lake itself. They live in simple houses of wood and woven bambooon stilts.

Local fishermen are known for practicing a distinctive rowing style which involves standing at the stern on one leg and wrapping the other leg around the oar. This unique style evolved out of necessity as the lake is covered by reeds and floating plants, making it difficult to see above them while sitting. Standing provides the rower with a view beyond the reeds. However, the leg rowing style is only practiced by the men. Women row in the customary style, using the oar with their hands, sitting cross legged at the stern.

And Inle Lake is the famous one all over the world. Thus, let me suggest for you as a place shouldn’t miss when you travel in Myanmar.


Indawgyi Lake

Indawgyi Lake Wildlife Sanctuary is situated in Mohnyin Township of Kachin State it was established in 1999 to conserve the largest inland lake in Southeast Asia and to protect it’s the dwelling birds.

It is one of my suggestion should visit in Myanmar.


Nat Ma Taung

Nat Ma Taung National Park is located in Kanpet-let, Mindut and Matupi Townships of Chin State.. To conserve the watershed areas of Lemro river, Myitha river, Saw Chaung, Maw Chaung, Salin Chuang, Che Chaung, Yow Chaung, Mon Chaung and the animals in it.

If you love trekking which can give you not only adventure but also the feeling, deep in the scenic. So it involves one of my top ten list destination in 2019 around Myanmar.


Trekking Kalaw to Inle Lake

For a much more adventurous experience in Inle Lake, trekking may be a suitable choice. Joining in this amazing tour of trekking near Inle Lake – Kalaw, Pindaya or Inle, you will certainly watch the peaceful life of Burmese locals as well as admire these magnificent sceneries with gentle rolling green hills alternating with villages and farms.

You spend the day hiking over undulating hills. Since walking along, you will definitely go through local hill tribe minorities and have a chance to watch their unique cultures.

If hiking around Inle Lake, at times you will take an incredible panoramic view of the lake below, a different vantage point from which you can easily appreciate the beauty of the water.

Openly I say, this is my favorite one to travel in 2019.If hope this trekking can give you more value than the time you spend in Myanmar.


Mt – Zwegabin

Mt-Zwegabin is in the region of Karen.This experience is an adventure also has views for sunrise and sunset are beyond spectacular. It is pretty much emotional. The climb takes 2 – 3 hours .When you climbing in the morning,  you may not miss the stunning high-up-in-the-sky views of both sunrise and sunset. It is always enchanting to watch the last hints of light fading away and the first hints of light coming out.Mt –Zwegabin also include in my list to miss out.


 Hsipaw Trekking

Hsipaw also known as Thibaw is the principal town of Hsipaw Township in Shan State.You  really c get many of the villages in Myanmar, they are so quaint, quirky, beautiful and downright fascinating.  Not only are there rolling tea plantation, stunning waterfalls and friendly villages in the area, but the main town is surprisingly well set up for travelers. I have no words to polish up for that. Surely one is you get awesome seconds of your life more than I say.


Mindat Trekking

Mindat is situated in Chin State, in Western Myanmar. It is difficult to get around without a tour guide. Here, you’ll find women with entrancing face tattoos.

The dark ink covers their entire face in patterns. Trekking through these mountains these days will give you a glimpse of a unique way of life, as the tattooed women are no longer allowed to pass on this tradition. This part of Myanmar is remote and more difficult to get to, with the only way being by bus from Mandalay. I have no doubt that you want to meet tribes of Myanmar. Don’t be missing out in 2019. 


I am sure these ten destinations must be top in 2019. Hope to see you again on my next blog.
