- Despite the proliferation of stupas everywhere, this is an enjoyably diverse trip. Lake Inle is a tranquil highlight whilst Kalaw, the former British hill town, is quite charming and Mandalay has many hidden delights. In fact, every single place we visited was fascinating in its own right. In addition to the beauty of the place was the beauty of the people - the Burmese people we encountered were kind, smiling and courteous and were great ambassadors for their country. Bagan, of course, was as wonderful as we expected but what we did not expect, perhaps, was that every other place we visited would be a highlight too.
