Myanmar Travel Essentials

Juan, our featured traveller from Seville (Spain), is passionate about Myanmar and wants to share the beauty of this country through Culture, People & Food.

It is with great pleasure, to have our friend who hails from Spain, to be a part of this blog. We will treasure it! A native of Seville, who currently lives and works in Yangon, Myanmar.

And, what is the story behind his fondness of a Southeast Asian country named Myanmar? How it started, we'll find out.

He published a book, Delicious Myanmar. An epitome that focuses on Myanmar people, food and culture which is carefully documented during his extended stay in the country. 

Read the book to learn about his interaction with the warm people of Myanmar, and his know-how in the traditional way of the country's delectable cuisine.



As to his travelling, when asked about the importance of budget, planning and how he manage to cut cost of his trip, he said,  "It is very important to know your daily budget and stick to it. That's how I do it. If one day I spend most of it in a good lunch, I know dinner is going to be more simple."

Juan loves to wake up in a new city. A city which he has never been before. Everyday is different when he travels and everyday he meets new people with new cultures.

And he believes that one of the best ways to meet people and explore the culture of a new country is by the food. "Be curious and try everything!," he adds.

I love travelling and one thing I have learned from it is to listen and respect everybody, and to adapt to any given situation.

My favourite part of the world is Southeast Asia, Myanmar, in particular. It is the most authentic and welcoming country I have ever been to so far.  And not to mention the honest people and delicious food, which are the two facts that inspired me to do my book Delicious Myanmar.


Delicious Myanmar is a photobook to discover Myanmar through its people and food. I have travelled all over the country and asked locals to cook their favourite dish for me in their own kitchen in a traditional way. I share pictures and write about the people, the dishes and the culture.

I am very proud of my first book because I've been learning while developing it and this has been a different and amazing way of travelling and getting to know the real people and authentic Myanmar. I strongly recommend everybody to find their passion and travel with a little project in mind. 

If you are planning a trip to Myanmar, visit my blog where I share my photos and experience in this beautiful country and drop me a message if you need any help organizing your trip.
