Introduction Myanmar

he legendary "Golden Land" - this is still the Myanmar of today. Certainly one of the most exotic countries in the world-aland of astounding beauty and charm that moved Kipling to pen these apt words: "quite unlike any land you will ever know".


Myanmar is a paradise to discover, a destination for discerning travellers to explore and experience the mystical charms of the East in all its diversity - rich archaeological sites, glittering pagodas, a wealth of cultures, colourful festivals and arts. Myanmar is also blessed with an awe-inspiring range of natural sights - idyllic land- scape, lush fertile plains, vast virgin jungles, majestic snowcapped mountains, pristine beaches washed by crystal clear waters, fragrant pine trees and sunflowers bathed in abundant sunshine.

But most of all, perfectly complemented by a most gracious and hospitable people.

Myanmar Arts and Crafts

Embroidery is a Myanmar Traditional artistic work. It is the art of sewing silver and gold threads on costumes, garments and dresses of members of royal palace of many decades ago.

These are modern embroideries, which are a combination of articles and artist work according to traditional handicraft figures. The embroidery paintings are being implemented by handicraft to bring out the shape of figures including ideas of light and dark and a mixture of colours and views of art.

Gold leaf works is a cottage industry that has existed since the time of ancient Myanmar monarchs. Gold leaf is mostly used for offering to pagodas. Myet-par ward in Mandalay Maha Aung Myay Township is the hub of gold leaf works.

Glass bottle painting, the art painted inside glass bottles, is a unique kind of art painting. The first glass bottle paintings appeared in China at the beginning of the19th Century. Most artists can paint on the outer surface of a bottle, but it is not easy to paint on the inner surface. Although it looks like canvas painting, glass bottle painting is a more intricate type of art, which needs to be precise in scale U Nyo Lay from Myanmar, is an imaginative glass bottle artist who taught himself the art.
