Burma – officially known as Myanmar, nowadays – is a large country. Covering a strange shape of 676 thousand square kilometers, with a long strip protruding in the south, a diversified population of 52 million, very few English speakers, a large number of regions blocked by the military government for national security purposes and one of the poorest transportation infrastructure, it is definitely a challenge for the casual tourist and the seasoned traveler alike. Yet it is undoubtedly one of the most interesting countries in the world to travel today.
This is a photo documentary of my 2015 trip in Myanmar. It covers Mandalay, Bagan, Kalaw, Inle Lake and Yangon. I chose the sounds of Al Kooper to dress the pictures, as I was listening to his recordings for most of the journey and they best convey the mood during my visit.
