Burma tour pictures

Burma tour pictures taken by Wi in Bagan, the Shan Plateau and Inle Lake on our 2-week Discover Burma tour

Here’s another selection of excellent Burma tour pictures from a recent Discover Burma tour taken by Wi for your perusal.  Burma’s certainly a photographer’s paradise and as usual, Wi returned with literally thousands of images so after making a tricky selection we’ll split our favourites into landscape and portrait posts. So, without further waffle – a few of the landscapes…..

Bagan
Bagan

Bagan can get busy at this time of year  but with just so many temples it’s not difficult to avoid the high season crowds. As with similar sites such as Angkor Wat in Cambodia, the vast majority of visitors follow a fairly set route so a bit of thinking outside the box is required when it comes to planning the visit.

Post rainy season the still lush vegetation forms an attractive backdrop to the already picturesque site.

So many temples and so many viewpoints we’re not actually certain if this is dawn or dusk and since Wi’s now off running the Vientiane to Phnom Penh Mekong Adventure she’s not around to ask!

From Bagan, the itinerary takes you up into the highlands of the Shan Plateau so plenty of very different, but equally scenic, landscapes.

At this time of year, the rice harvest was in full swing providing some bucolic rural scenes that, with the still very traditional methods in use, have hardly changed in hundreds of years; ox carts, buffalo and threshing by hand.

No series of Burmese landscapes would be complete without Inle so we’ll leave you with this early morning shot of a fisherman on the Lake.
