Burma (Myanmar) Holidays

Burma (Myanmar) Holidays

With its fascinating ethnic diversity, a landscape stretching from the Indian Ocean to the high Himalaya and a stunning abundance of gilded temples and monuments, Burma has some of the strongest draws of any travel destination.

The western world seems to have left Burma untouched and for now, the country and lives of its people remain steeped in ancient ways and traditions.

Outside the former capital city of Yangon (Rangoon) there are essentially three must-see areas for the first time visitor to discover when they travel in Burma: Mandalay – the cultural heart of the country and inspiration for myriad writers and artists; Bagan – a vast plain filled with beautifully crafted temples and monuments; and Inle Lake where floating villages are home to fishermen and farmers with a way of life little changed from centuries ago.

Alongside these main attractions, there are many other lesser-visited sights such as the 'Old Moulmein Pagoda' at Mawlamyinie, the 'Forest of Temples' as Kakkua and the historic British hill stations of Pyin Oo Lwin and Kalaw. Our Definitive Cultural Tour of Burma reveals many of these lesser-known cultural sights. Our ever popular Golden Trails of Burma walking holiday explores Burma's key cultural highlights on foot as well as taking day walks in Burma's beautiful rolling countryside. Alternatively, uncover the very best of the Golden Land on two wheels with our Cultural Cycling tour.
