Memories of Mystical Myanmar

An eye-opening journey to the country sometimes referred to as ‘the Golden Land’.

Mount Popa, an extinct volcano over 1,500m above sea level.
22 alumni and friends went on an enjoyable and educational trip to Myanmar from 8 to 12 June. The highlights of the trip included visits to Shwedagon Pagoda (the most sacred and impressive Buddhist site in Myanmar) and Bagan (home to the largest and densest concentration of Buddhist temples, pagodas, stupas and ruins in the world). The happy adventurers also had a great time catching up with NUS alumni currently residing in Yangon over a dinner which was graced by Ms Vanessa Chan, Ambassador of Singapore to the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.
