The stunning singer and her rapper hubby have also taken their adorable daughter Blue Ivy on their cultural adventure.

Beyoncé swapped her stage show-stoppers for holiday chic as she donned a shawl-like dress, vibrant coloured prints and loose trousers for her travel album – further fuelling rumours that the 33-year-old is pregnant with her second child.

A large hat shaded her face from the sun and some pictures show a red bandana keeping her curly tresses in check.

The star couple made their way to Bagan in central Burma, also known as Myanmar, on their trip – one of the world's greatest archeological sites featuring dozens of temples rising up from a 26 square-mile lush green plain set against a mountainous backdrop.

Many of the breathtaking temples, which were built by the kings of Bagan between 1057 and 1287, contain frescoes, carvings and statues of Buddha – Beyoncé captured one statue through the lens and shared the impressive sight with her 23.8 million followers.

According to reports, the loved-up pair even took a bike tour, enjoying the historical sights with a tour group.

The couple did get into hot water for some photos of their travels, though. One snap that showed the Knowles-Carter clan look on as a tiger cub is fed milk from a bottle at a Thai theme park received criticism from fans, as well as from animal rights organisation World Animal Protection. Beyoncé's elephant ride during the trip also came under criticism.
