MAG­I­CAL MYAN­MAR

Oi Vietnam - - Front Page - Text and Images by James Pham

Myan­mar is the last of the truly mag­i­cal des­ti­na­tions of the Ori­ent, a Tech­ni­color glimpse of Old Asia per­fumed with san­dal­wood and spiced with ginger. It is one of the most de­voutly Bud­dhist na­tions on earth, a land of glis­ten­ing gilded pago­das and hand-carved sand­stone tem­ples tended by hushed, saf­fron-robed monks. The gen­tle hos­pi­tal­ity of the Burmese peo­ple knows few lim­its. And for all this, and more, the world's ad­ven­tur­ous trav­el­ers should be grate­ful. Jour­ney with James Pham as he spends three Burmese weeks in the Golden Land.
