Although it is the biggest nation in mainland Southeast Asia, honeymooners can cover a lot of ground in Myanmar over the course of an enchanting week. Sheltered from the excesses of mass tourism due to a long period of self-imposed seclusion, the country is ideally suited to couples that crave a little adventure without sacrificing anything in the way of comfort. Commencing in the former capital Yangon, a lively but laid-back place of faded colonial architecture, spectacular pagodas and busy street markets, guests will ease into their honeymoon with a stay at the historic Strand Hotel. From Yangon an easy transfer by plane whisks guests to the UNESCO-listed temple complex at Bagan – one of the heritage wonders of the region. Equally romantic is Inle Lake, the placid showpiece of spectacular Shan State, where experiences range from a lazy boat ride through the Intha communities that call the lake home to a master class in the tenets of the delicious local cuisine.
