Magical places to explore

Myanmar

Bagan

Bagan is an ancient city that was the capital of the prosperous Bagan empire that controlled most of present day Burma. At the height of empire’s power between the 11th and 13th century more than 10,000 temples and pagodas were built.

Today, about 2,200 monuments remain in various states of repair, which makes Bagan one of the most dense concentrations of temples and pagodas in the world.

Bagan is an excellent site to see a number of ancient monuments built in various architectural styles. The site also shows the development in architecture and design over the course of several centuries. Since many Kings wanted to leave a legacy for future generations to see, impressive monuments were erected in evolving styles and shapes.

Inle lake

In the unique watery world of Inle Lake, Intha fisherman row canoes with one leg, gardens float, and wooden homes perch above the water on rickety stilts. Take some time to explore one of Myanmar's most iconic destinations with an early-morning cruise, a cycle through the countryside, or sojourns into the surrounding hills and villages.

Tokyo

Tokyo is a surprisingly good city for parks. The city has dozens of large parks and hundreds of smaller parks. None of the Tokyo's parks are at the scale of Central Park in New York. Nevertheless, several of Tokyo's parks are just big enough to have a similar feel.

Shinjuku Gyoen

One of Tokyo's most popular parks known for its exquisite gardens. Shinjuku Gyoen is a large park of 58 hectares and 20,000 trees on the edge of Shinjuku, Tokyo's biggest neighborhood.

It's remarkably quiet due to its admission fee and limited hours. Hanami parties at Shinjuku Gyoen are comparatively subdued due to the park's no alcohol policy. The park is also known for its chrysanthemums and autumn colors.
