What makes Burma (Myanmar) so special?

Holidays in Burma (Myanmar) give the visitor a chance to experience fascinating ethnic diversity, a landscape stretching from the Indian Ocean to the high Himalaya and a stunning abundance of gilded temples and monuments.

From the major cultural sights of vibrant Yangon (Rangoon) and inspirational Mandalay, to peaceful Inle Lake where fishermen lead traditional lives in floating villages, Burma has perhaps some of the strongest draws of any travel destination.

In November 2010, the National League for Democracy revised their stance on travel to Burma, and is now encouraging visitors to return to the country. With this in mind, Mountain Kingdoms uses privately-owned hotels, restaurants, tea shops and transportation wherever possible, and omits visits to certain attractions run by the military regime that will profit from foreign travel. Burma has a huge amount to offer visitors who wish to support the people. Whether you want to travel in Burma for the cultural highlights or walk its remote hills, Mountain Kingdoms can put together the perfect Burma holiday experience for you.
