Explore: Myanmar

After nearly half a century of economic stagnation and heavy-handed rule by a military government, change is underway in Myanmar, formerly known as Burma. Myanmar is finally opening up to tourists and Gene Gilliom was fortunate to lead two groups to Myanmar last year.

Gene Gilliom shares his stories and stunning photos of those two unique travel experiences. Highlights include the beautiful Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, hundreds of ancient pagodas and temples in Bagan, village life experienced during a several day cruise on the fabled Irrawaddy River, and the unforgettable beauty of Inle Lake.
