Destination: Burma

Outside the former capital city of Yangon (Rangoon) there are essentially three must-see areas for the first time visitor to Burma:  Mandalay – the cultural heart of the country; Bagan – a vast plain filled with beautifully crafted temples and monuments; and Inle Lake - home to traditional floating villages and the renown leg-rowers.

For those who enjoy walking, the beautiful countryside around the historic British hill stations of Pyin Oo Lwin and Kalaw offer cooler climes.  And, for when you want to really relax, pristine Ngapali Beach is the place to head.

Those looking for something more remote should head north to the high peaks of the Himalaya.  Here there is superb trekking in a pristine landscape with magnificent panoramic views from Mount Phongun Razi (3,635m/1,926ft).

Take a look at our suggested Experiences and accommodation and start creating your perfect holiday to Burma.
