Would anyone like to see a giant golden boulder perched perilously at the edge of a cliff, a city of 4,000 stupas, or 777 steps leading to the prettiest shrine you ever did see? Um, hellz yeah!

Rudyard Kipling and George Orwell have spent time there and written about it, so Myanmar's alright in our book. Speaking of books, if Myanmar was a novel, it’d be an epic tale of a country torn between good and evil, which is basically what it was until very recently.

But the country’s dramatic past doesn’t stop the locals from smiling, especially when they’re welcoming visitors to their incredible shores.

Get to Inle Lake, cruise the Ayeyarwaddy River, grab some wares in the Bogyoke Aung San Market and take in more temples than you can shake a statue of the Buddha at.

Do not pass Bagan's 2000 Pagodas, do not collect $200.
