Aussie travellers urged to head to Burma

Aussie holidaymakers  looking for somewhere a bit different for their 2012 holiday should consider Burma, according to bosses at Myanmar Tours.

The Asian country has a range of activities available to tourists and plenty of airlines serve the nation.

More Aussies are finding that Asian destinations are representing value for money, as places such as Vietnam and Thailand are offering them the best exchange rates at the moment.

Indeed, the national currency is the Burmese Kyat and Australian holidaymakers can expect to get around 6.79 MMK for their dollar.

The cheap cost of living in Burma also means that people's travel credit cards will not take a battering.

Besides, the leaders at Myanmar Tours believe there are so many natural beauty spots to visit in Burma – such as the 2,500 year-old Shwedagon Pagoda, the largest and oldest golden monument on earth – that you will only have to spend a minimal amount of money anyway.
