Inspiring Travel Ideas

There are so many great places to visit. Here are some that you might like to try.


Visit Bagan, the ancient city, where  2,000 pagodas still remain; Inle Lake, where the fishermen have evolved a unique one-legged paddling style; and Yangon, the erstwhile capital where the magnificent Shwedagon Pagoda dominates the skyline


The mountain kingdom where Gross National Happiness prevails. There is much to see; the sub-tropical valleys in the south, the Himalayan foothills and mountains to the north. The landscapes are stunningly beautiful and the cultural heritage largely intact.


What can you say about India?

Mysterious, exotic, diverse, beautiful, colourful and inspiring; an endless source of fascination. A traveller’s dream destination.
