Thingyan offers a rich tapestry for keen-eyed shutterbugs – provided they can keep their cameras dry. Here, brought to you by our dedicated team of photographers, are some of our favourite moments captured in years gone by, including traditional dancers in Magwe, good-natured street-side splashing, downpours at Yangon's enormous pandals, and, at festival's end, the releasing of fish and trimming of elders' fingernails to mark New Year's Day.
As a shutterbug with wanderlust, I am attracted to any trip with sights to see and room for relaxation. Bagan has to be high on anyone’s list of Places to Visit, and I do happen to have such a list. Every New Year, I resolve to tick off some more items. This year, Bagan was one of them, but with a twist – I wanted to see it from a bird’s-eye view.
