Myanmar in the Odyssey Guides series, aimed at travellers particularly interested in the culture and history of their destination. It takes the readers to the most famous cities and sites as well as beaches and mountains, from the great Ayeyarwady River to Kipling’s Mandalay and the exotic Inle Lake. This is a comprehensive guide that offers information on the local history and culture, literary excerpts and recommended reading, essential sites and architectural treasures, practical information, best hotels and restaurants, 158 colour photos and a 16 page Atlas plus city maps and plans.

The guides also showcase a range of literary excerpts which are taken from travel writers together with translations from the work of indigenous writers and poets, creating a distinctive tone unique to the publisher. There are also basic overview location maps and concise practical advice for visitors, including information on getting there and around, itineraries, climate, health, clothing and equipment, money, communications, security, shopping, media, food and drink, holidays and behavior, customs and etiquette.

As the only English language publisher based in China, Odyssey Guides specialize in Asian destinations, relying on the expertise of local writers. This gives readers more of an insider’s perspective, in companion with the practicalities of navigating through remote Asian landscapes. Each title is heavily dedicated to the culture of the destination, all with accompanying colour photography.
