In 2017/18 we are offering a tailor made family holiday service for all our worldwide destinations. Be inspired by our Family Adventure Burma sample itinerary.

Beneath the golden spire of Shwedagon Pagoda our adventures begin with a tour of Yangon (Rangoon) on foot and by local train. From here we fly north to explore the vast temple-filled plain of Bagan by bike. Then on to Mandalay to see the world’s largest book and watch gold being beaten into wafer thin pieces. Outside the city we’ll take a boat up the Ayeyarwady River before a sunset walk along the world’s longest teak bridge. At Inle Lake we'll enjoy a bike ride and use motorised long boats to travel to the floating gardens and stilt houses that the area is famed for.

We suggest a minimum age of seven years for children to travel on our family holiday in Burma, but we are happy to use our personal experience to help you choose the best holiday for your family.

    We are delighted to offer an exciting new extension in Burma to visit Hpa-An, the capital of Karen State lying south east of Yangon. Hpa-An is a charming town set on the banks of the mighty Salween River, one of the great rivers of south east Asia which rises in Tibet and flows down to the Andaman Sea. This is an incredibly beautiful region of green paddy fields and dramatic limestone karsts.

    As an additional attraction on this exciting extension you will stay at a charming recently opened boutique lodge, the Hpa-An Lodge, which offers a very high standard of accommodation and is already receiving glowing reports from all who visit it.

    We offer two versions of this extension, with one including a visit to the Golden Rock in Kin Pun.

    • Excursion lasts 2.5 – 3 hours, with an hour-long balloon flight and refreshments afterwards

    More Details

    Visitors to Bagan now have the opportunity to enjoy spectacular views of the ancient Kingdom of Bagan in a hot air balloon. The world-famous archaeological site of Bagan is known for its marvellous sunsets and sunrises, mostly enjoyed from the top of one of the monuments but a balloon flight gives you the chance to see Bagan from a bird’s-eye view.

    Golden Rock, Burma - extension
    • Walk 4km to reach the top of Golden Rock, for an unforgettable sunrise or sunset
    • Three day extension visting pagodas and giant buddha's as well as the Golden Rock
    • Available to add to your Burma holiday between October and May

    More Details

    Extend your stay in Burma with a visit to the Golden Rock of Kyaikhtiyo, one of the most revered pilgrimage sites for Buddhists. Perched on the edge of a ledge at a height of 1,100m, the precariously positioned gold-plated boulder is said to maintain its balance thanks to a single hair of the Buddha being enshrined inside the pagoda.

    During your three-day extension, you’ll also visit pagodas, stop off at the Allied War Graves Cemetery at Htauk Kyan, see reclining Buddhas and drop in at local villages before returning to Rangoon for your final night in what will have been a memorable trip to Burma.

    Angkor Wat extension
    • Visit Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm, Angkor Thom, the Bayon and more. Each of these sites has its own individual charm.
    • Flights to Siem Reap from either Burma or Bangkok.
    • All entrance fees, guides and transport during your time in Cambodia.
    • Three nights stay at a lovely Boutique hotel with a pool and friendly staff.

    More Details

    Angkor Wat is the largest religious building in the world. The name translates to ‘The temple that is a city’ and after a visit to this amazing site you will understand why.

    During your four days here you will have the chance to spend time not only at Angkor Wat but also the atmospheric ruins of Ta Prohm where the jungle has taken over the temple, the epic Angkor Thom, the enchanting Bayon and much more besides. Each of these sites has its own individual charm and will leave you with memories to last a life time. Angkor could be described as a giant game of one-upmanship with each successive king trying to out do the previous with a larger and more impressive temple, culminating in Angkor Wat. This four day extension can be added on to all our Burmese trips and any of our holidays ending in Bangkok.
