This is a fascinating place to live within an amazing culture at the heart of South East Asia - with all of the regions delights on your doorstep. Some of the world's most beautiful beaches are nearby and weekends can be spent exploring the likes of Mandalay. Further afield is the gateway to all that the Far East has to offer.
