A Myanmar gap year gives you a unique opportunity to live in a country which only recently ‘opened its doors’ to the outside world.
Myanmar (pronounced MEE’-an-mar), formerly known as Burma, borders India, Bangladesh, China, Laos and Thailand.
Myanmar is a beautiful and culturally rich country which has, for decades, endured an oppressive regime. A green landscape scattered by gilded pagodas, it seems no hill is left unadorned by these beautiful bell shaped stupas. Whilst it is physically and geographically beautiful it is the people who are likely to be the highlight in Myanmar. Friendly and warm, you will be greeted by smiles wherever you go and will get used to being asked for selfies!
