Where can you watch 1,200 monks queuing for alms, visit a temple that entranced Rudyard Kipling and started a war, and see fishermen rowing with their feet? The answer is 2012’s most talked-about destination, Burma – find out more in the latest inspiring issue of Wanderlust.
This month, we also get off the beaten track in Colombia, Colorado and Albania, and showcase some incredible photos of Outback Australia. Plus mini guides to Prague, Montreal and the Cairngorms, 7 ways to wear a sarong, and why a hip replacement is no barrier to adventure for 80-year-old wanderwoman Dervla Murphy.
