We explore Myanmar, a once-powerful kingdom of early civilization in Southeast Asia. Instead of planning every specific detail of where to go, this time we decided to improvise and go with the flow. The result was a memorable trip that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

The Burmese people are very conservative. I cycled through Bagan without feeling any danger. I decided to experiment more and left a bike unlocked and entered a temple. The bike was still there when I returned. You must take off your shoes whenever you enter any temple in Myanmar. Some temples in Myanmar have a secret passage that allows you to go to the top of the temple. It's basically a small hole in the wall with extremely steep and narrow stairs that will take you to the top.

Before you travel: you didn't forget about travel insurance, right?

If you're so anxious that you forgot to take out travel insurance , don't worry, there's still time! Travel insurance , although not mandatory for entry into American soil, can be your best friend. This is because any medical care or emergency, no matter how simple it may be, has very high costs in the land of Uncle Sam. Insurance with good coverage prevents a huge headache (not to mention in your pocket) and also gives you that hand in case your suitcase being lost, for example. We suggest that you take out insurance that covers any type of incident on the spot! We at Ideias na Mala recommend and do not travel without insurance from Seguros Promo , a Brazilian company that works as an insurance comparator, seeking the best cost-benefits on the market without giving up excellent coverage!

Myanmar is a captivating and exciting country for many reasons. From floating villages, to valleys of ancient temples that defeated Angkor Wat, to multi-day jungle treks in mountain tea picking villages.

Before Myanmar relaxed its tourism policies, obtaining visas to the country could be a huge hassle. SIM cards used to cost a lot of dollars, banks were scarce, and the rest of the country was closed to travel. Fortunately, it's much easier to travel now. We actually found it easier than many other countries we visited, getting our visa at the border.

A curious fact is that we visited the Maldives before going to Myanmar, and Rafael decided to get a haircut with a razor on the island and it looked terrible, so we found a hairdresser in Myanmar for an incredible 5 reais and the cut also included a chiropractic-style massage, one of the most memorable experiences we have had in this poor country.
