            Wanderlust noted that in the past six months Myanmar  “has gone from being the world’s most controversial travel destination to, potentially, its most exciting”.
            “It’s a moving and hopeful sign to see (Myanmar) top the emerging destination poll, editor-in-chief Lyn Hughes said in a statement. “(Myanmar) is a fragile destination that needs to be treated with care but it is wonderful to see travelers returning and supporting the country. It’s  definitely top of my travel plans this year.”
            The magazine has a circulation of more than  3000 and Dr Aung Myat Kyaw, chairman of the Myanmar Marketing  Committee, said the prize would help the country  “attract  more tourists, especially from the UK and other European contries”.
