Magical Myanmar

Photographs and Words by Stefano Pedroni

Still fairly untouched by mass tourism, Myanmar (or Burma) welcomes you with unexpected charm  and friendliness. Not yet contaminated by the western way of life, the country  lets you discover its traditions, cuisine, culture and amazing landmarks with humble simplicity. We chose to travel around Myanmar with no reservations and no fixed itinerary, using only local transportation so we could experience and understand local life at a very slow pace.
