Myanmar, also called Burma, is one of Asia's least-known destinations—a situation that is rapidly changing now as the country welcomes increasing numbers of foreign visitors. This is the first walking guide to present all the important heritage attractions and historical sites in the country. Author Kenneth Barrett not only takes you there, but explains in loving detail how each district and building evolved, who built what, and the special significance of the fascinating sites encountered along the way—everything you'd want in a Myanmar travel guide.
25 Walks in Myanmar helps you discover this ancient land by guiding you on foot through the old neighborhoods and bringing them to life.
