Burma: Land of Harmony, Spirit of Grace

© Debbie Jefkin-Elnekave

The reasons to love Burma are many: gracious people, millenia-old pagodas, picturesque villages, floating gardens, crimson & amethyst sunsets. Time passes ever so gently in this enchanting place, which is contentedly sheltered from mass tourism and the rush of contemporary life. The hotels are not oppressively chic nor modern, but simple, comfortable, peaceful, and remarkably harmonious with the environment. This magical country, which Rudyard Kipling described as "unlike any place you know about," promises unforgettable cultural experiences, and delivers even more than it promises.
