Once termed "the land of gold" Myanmar has been an attractive land to tourists for its original, antique and thousands of unique religious architectural buildings, ranging from intricately designed Buddhist shrines to the huge "open air museum" city of Mrauk-U. Myanmar today is no longer isolated, instead the country is now opening door to the world, yet it still remains unrevealed which makes Myanmar become promisingly attraction to explorers. One of the best itineraries to discover the country is the route starting and finishing from Yangon, the capital city of Myanmar and "The Garden City of the East".
