CARLOSMELIARECOMMENDS > eNews FEBRUARY 2016
It is not big news that Asia is my favortire destination in the world, as a matter of fact, it has been the subject of a recent interview I did with EPICURE Asia, which has me featured on their February 2016 printed issue. After many years, last October I'd gotten myself to Myanmar, weeks prior the historic Presidential elections, spending over a week exploring Yangon and a 4-night voyage along the Ayeyarwady River, onbard the Belmond Road to Mandalay Luxury River Cruise from Bangan to Mandalay.
Stay tuned for the eNews March 2016 featuring my recent trip to Miami Beach scouting for new hotels, restaurants and districts.

MYANMAR - YANGON & BAGAN TO MANDALAY > BLOG POSTS BASED ON MY OWN TRAVEL EXPERIENCES
Myanmar is such a mysterious land. From the hustle and bustle of Yangon, where you will be able expereince among others, Shwedagon Pagoda, to the charming and full of life villages along the banks of the Ayeyarwady River, the main artery crossing Myanmar, connecting Bangan and Mandalay. After many years intrigued by this destination, formerly known as Burma, I came last October, for over a week invited by Belmond, on a fascinating journey and voyage of discovery and sefl-discovery, like no other. Expect spectacular sunsets, multiple close encounters with saffron-robed Buddhist Monks, breathtaking landscapes and sights, ancient legends and a mirage of photo moments. Welcome to my Myanmar experience curated by Belmond.
