Picture of the Day

The fledgling “Burma Spring” has opened an unprecedented travel window into the beautiful and mysterious Myanmar.  With Nobel Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi securing a major election victory, the Southeast Asian nation slowly emerges from a half century of isolation, and pro-democracy advocates urge foreign visitors to seek authentic cultural experiences to support local communities.  The country’s poor infrastructure makes solo travel through Myanmar’s unexplored valleys and ancient villages difficult.  But, ancient Buddhist temples, like this one in Bagan, are worth the adventure.  Photograph by Pascal Sittler, REA/Redux.
