An isolated and remote country, unspoiled by mass tourism, Myanmar aka Burma is for the curious traveller, not the average tourist. Odyssey's latest handbook takes readers to the most famous cities and sites as well as beaches and mountains. Travel the great Ayeyarwady River to Kipling's Mandalay, the last of Burma's royal capitals, and explore the exotic Inle Lake whose inhabitants live on floating islands overgrown with flowers and lush vegetation. And, of course, meet the people of this richly varied land, from the northern hill tribes to the amiable Burmans themselves. "Myanmar: Burma in Style" intelligently evokes the magic and the mystery of what was once by some reckoning the richest nation in Asia. This is not simply a travel guidebook. It is an illustrated account of the history, politics and culture of the people and the country. It includes literary excerpts and recommended reading as well as an introduction to the essential sites. A sixteen-page atlas together with three special photo-essays supplement the richly illustrated text.
