Myanmar - former Burma - is a country as no other. The visitors are impressed  by the large number  of  Buddhist pagodas. Perhaps the biggest attraction of the country is Bagan, where thousands of  temples and pagodas are situated. Another places of interest are the former royal city of Mandalay and the Inle-lake.
