Pictures of Myanmar (Burma) : Myanmar's top photos site

 

2000 high quality digital pictures, photos

with a short description and maps of interesting destinations in Myanmar (Burma).

 

Myanmar is a wonderful country.

It has MANY Buddhist pagodas (temples), beautiful nature and friendly people.

For me it is an oasis in this, on many places, crazy world.

 

Myanmar a country of superlatives:

Some of the most impressive sacred sites of Asia as the 2200 temples of Bagan, the wonderful Shwedagon Paya in Yangon and the incredible balancing boulder stupa called Kyaiktiyo.

Beautiful nature such as Inle Lake, a peaceful and tranquil oasis, where people still live in harmony with nature. But also dotted with 1000 stupas all around. If you want to have a break of all the traveling there are the pristine beaches in Western Myanmar. In Western Myanmar there is also the magical city of Mrauk U. It has some resemblance with Bagan, but more rustic and with only a few tourists. In Bagan the temples are the main attraction, but in Mrauk U it is the whole scene and the people.

The amazing friendly and hospitable people, showed me in every way, how happy they are about me visiting their country. See my tribute to the girls and women of Myanmar and the colorful markets of Taunggyi with many hill tribes.

Mandalay and the ancient cities around it, full of Buddhist treasures to be explored.

The Pindaya Caves with more than 8000 Buddha statues.

Also the cities of Bago with many beautiful Buddha statues and Pathein, which has a relaxed, typical out of time atmosphere, are certainly worth a visit.

The scarce visited Southern Myanmar  has many enchanting destinations.

And some more for you to discover.

Update 2011-10-09: I am very happy that it looks like the democracy is really improving according to several articles at BBC World News. The Burmese, I have met, are beautiful people and the country is amazing. I want to give a tribute to Aung San Suu Kyi, one of these wonderful people, who stand so strong for what they see as right and are able to convey it to so many. But also to BBC World News, because their continuous coverage has influenced many people in the West for this cause.

Update 2012-04-03: Pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi's party has won a landslide victory in by-elections, local election officials have confirmed.

My heartiest congratulations to Aung San Suu Kyi and all the freedom and peace loving people of Myanmar.

 

Update 2012-05-01. I am so happy again to see that it looks like the democracy process in Myanmar has passed a point of no-return (for a moment I have been afraid because the 'oath' question).

A highlight for me also has been the visit of Ban Ki-moon to Myanmar and the praise he has given to Aung San Suu Kyi. Does she not look radiant on this photo?

A lot of countries are now easing their sanctions, so a new and bright future is now possible for this wonderful country and the Burmese people. They are all in my heart.

 

I saw today 23-9-2012 on BBC2 an one hour beautiful documentary over Aung San Suu Kyi

and I admire her even more.

I want to give one important quote of her:

 

Just wanting something isn't enough.

You must know how to get it.

You must also dare to do it

and be able to do it.

 

So true.
