Other Goals




Myanmar
Vastly underrated, almost entirely unexplored and gloriously untouched, Myanmar (aka Burma) is an effervescent delight with an untapped glory of natural treasures, incredible historical gems and astounding scenery. To travel to a place that has stood almost completely still in time, and to have a chance to experience first-hand the unknown delights surrounded by evidence of a chaotic, humbling and turbulent past would be a once in a life time travel opportunity indeed.

Taunggyi Balloon Festival
Each year, the city of Taunggyi in Myanmar's Shan State hosts a famous hot-air balloon festival, held in honor of the Tazaungmon full moon day.
