Juan Myanmar Travel Essentials

My name is Juan Gallardo and I am passionate about photography and South East Asia, specifically Myanmar (Burma).

This website focuses on Myanmar, its people, its culture and its sites. All the pictures you will see are my own from my travels all over Myanmar, meeting wonderful people and getting to know amazing sights. Whether you have already travelled in Myanmar, are planning a visit or want to discover the country through pictures, this is the site for you. I hope that you enjoy my photos of Myanmar and all of my advice and information about the country.

If you would like to ask me for consultancy and research, advertising, an interview, use my photos or just say hi, please send me an email to info [at] myanmartravelessentials [dot] com or contact me on LinkedIn.


Juan Gallardo – ‘Delicious Myanmar

Delicious Myanmar Back Cover OK small

Juan Gallardo is an entrepreneur from the Spanish city of Seville. A born adventurer, he has lived in the UK, the US and Europe and has travelled extensively.

In 2012, Juan gave up a successful seven year career in Finance to embrace his passion for Southeast Asia, and headed for Myanmar.

After a few months travelling the length and breadth of the country with his backpack and camera, he was inspired to start a blog where he shared his experiences of Myanmar along with his bold and vibrant photography of the country and its people. The blog was an immediate hit and now has thousands of visits every month.

Juan returned to Myanmar in 2014 with a renewed desire to discover everything about Burmese cuisine. He travelled to remote areas of the Golden Land, tasting traditional dishes cooked for him by the locals. It is these amazing dishes, the warmth of the people and the beauty of the land that is captured in Delicious Myanmar.
