Myanmar is one of the best places to go backpacking because it is unlike other more urbanized countries in the South East Asia. This place has a lot of exotic places to visit that have still not been touched by urbanization. So for those who would want to go Myanmar backpacking, here is a short guide that will help tourists know which places are the best to visit while on the trip.

Now the ancient Buddhist temples are very famous in this area because they are authentic and have actually not been touched by the modern world.

Yangon is yet another place that one should never miss out on his travels to this country. This is one of the most peaceful places in the entire country because motorcycles are banned in this place which makes walking very peaceful and comfortable. It is also home to the Shwedagon Pagoda which is actually the most beautiful golden pagoda in the entire South East Asia.

Now for those who are into hiking in nature, then maybe a great place to visit would be Lake Inle. Aside from having a very nice boat ride around the river, one can also go to the forests that would surround the lake. Of course these forests are also untouched by urbanization which means that there are still a lot of beautiful flowers and animals that can be found in that area.

Of course before one would go back from his trip, one of the things that he has to do would be to buy some souvenirs for his loved ones. One of the best places to go for this type of purpose would of course be Mandalay as this street has a lot of interesting markets. This place is quite hectic with a lot of people but one can find a lot of treasures here.

Now those who are into beaches, this place has the very peaceful Ngapali beach. Now do remember that this beach is not a beach resort with a lot of people in it. It is in fact just a very secluded beach that just has a few huts and a few guesthouses for the guests to stay in.

Now when one would go there, he should always try out the exotic street food there. The streets are the best places to find great food because these are the real exotic food that cannot be found in restaurants at all. The best part of it all is that the food here is very cheap and anyone can buy it.

So for those who are interested to go to this beautiful country, this guide will bring them to some of the best places in the country. One will get to see the beauty of a developing country by visiting some of these places. This is definitely a great place for backpackers.
