Have you ever considered travelling in Myanmar by bike?
Up until recently the country was hard to travel. You had to fly in and out, you couldn’t visit many regions and you had to stay at tourist-specific hotels. But only in the last few years have these rules relaxed, you can now even cross the country via the land borders as an international tourist.

Amaya Williams of WorldBiking has put together a wonderful little guide to the country which I had to share. It’s 54 pages of photos and how-tos. As usual, Amaya has taken some phenomenal photos to help inspire you to get on your bike! Topics include visas and special permits, when to go, where to sleep, Burma top 10, dealing with authorities plus tips on roads and routes.
