Myanmar has hundreds of temples, Stupas and Pagodas, built between the 11th century and today.  The temples are very different depending on the regions, they are also made in a wide variety of materials; stone, gold and brick and are all built to worship Buddha.

One of the places I visited is Inle Lake where fishermen only use their leg in order to row.  Therefore their hands are free to be able to throw the nets in the water and pull them up.  They fish around floating gardens and villages.  These are all incredibly well kept in a peaceful atmosphere.

 

I had a wonderful flight over Bagan in a hot air balloon,at dawn.  The balloon takes you to the skies to admire the temples from above.  Their ocre colour turns  golden as the sun rises from the horizon.
