20 Amazing Photos of Myanmar
Portraits and Street Photography in Myanmar
Myanmar offers amazing portrait and street photography options. Honestly, we think that the most amazing photos of Myanmar were particularly the ones shot on the streets. Locals do not mind being photographed, if you ask for permission first, of course. People are very open and very welcoming and will give you a warm smile as there are not that many tourists wandering around the streets. Hopefully, the portraits and street photos we captured in Myanmar will spark your wanderlust and inspire you to visit Myanmar and get to know its amazing people.
Drone Photography of Myanmar
Our favorite kind of photography to introduce aerial landscapes and show our viewers the wider perspective of an area we are visiting is by using a drone. Bagan is the honey pot for every drone owner. Also for people who just enjoy landscape and aerial photography. The change in perspective when flying a drone is indescribable. Almost like riding a hot air balloon over Bagan. It the drone shot photo gallery of Myanmar does not give you excitement goosebumps, we don’t know what will!
Important: If you want to take a drone into Myanmar legally you need to obtain the government’s approval. It is a time-consuming process. Thus, you should apply at least a month in advance. There are no clear drone laws in place. However, if your baggage gets scanned by the customs upon arrival your drone will be confiscated. Then you can retrieve it upon your departure from the country. On an unofficial level drones have been banned by the customs.

Best Instagram Spots in Myanmar
An unusual category for photos, but a very requested one. When we were visiting Myanmar and posting photos on our Instagram feed people kept sending us DM’s to share the location or photo tips. So we decided to share some of our best shots of Myanmar. Taken specifically for Instagram purposes. Mostly these shots involve us with a picturesque background. Thus, when the pictures are posted on Instagram, we can tell a story behind each picture.
Bagan is the most Instagrammable place we have been! The sunsets and sunrises are perfect for any photography lover! Also, the conditions are perfect to make amazing photos! Make sure to use arches, beautiful Pagodas in the background and other shapes and objects to frame your Instagram photos of Myanmar. Depending on what is the mood or focus of your Instagram feed (landscapes, nature, people, photos of yourself) you can tailor the photos to fit that.
We hope these amazing photos of Myanmar inspired you to travel to the country. So you can let your creativity roam free in Myanmar.
