Burma

Also known as Myanmar, Burma is a wonderful country for getting off the beaten track. Not as well visited as some of its South East Asian neighbours (Thailand, Laos, China, India), there are rumblings that it’s going to get a lot more popular as word of its incredible scenery, vibrant architecture and clean, safe cities gets out.

Rudyard Kipling famously wrote that Burma is ‘quite unlike any place you know.’ And with its snow-capped mountains, jungle wilderness, miles of undeveloped coastline and incredibly rich heritage, his words still ring true today.

The lavishly gold-plated Schwedagon Pagoda in Yangon and the ruins of the Temples of Bagan are wonderful examples of the country’s long and tempestuous history and a visit to cultural centres like Mandalay are a must. Take a trip to the majestic Inle Lake where you can watch the native Intha’s masterfully navigate using their unique technique of leg rowing. Enjoy an early morning hot air balloon ride, cruise up the Irrawaddy River or simply sit back and immerse yourself in your surroundings.

Whether you love trekking in the mountains, visiting local markets or want an unforgettable honeymoon, you’ll find your perfect holiday in this breathtaking country. And of course, we’ll make it extra special by planning your trip exactly as you want it. Get in touch now for your tailor-made Burma tour.

We are loving Myanmar, perhaps particularly because of the warm and welcoming people. There is always a smile, a handshake, a wave, an exchange of some kind…Thanks for all that you did to make this trip possible– Richard & Karen
