A good friend of ours travelled to Myanmar last year and fell completely in love with the place. This issue of Astronaut Magazine features a photo series of golden temples, rickety bridges over spirit-filled water and smiling child monks in billowing burgundy robes.

Feel free to sample a few snaps from Michael Belhadi´s most recent trip to Myanmar, which captures the country during a time of rapid change and modernization. For a visual tour of this magical place, check out the latest issue of Astronaut Magazine here. Posted by Sophia in May 2014.
