Burma / Myanmar
Burma is a fascinating country. Pagodas dot the landscape, farmers tend to their emerald green rice paddies and the pace of life mirrors the slowly changing seasons. Home to friendly, welcoming people, the ancient golden spires and scarlet robed priests of Yangon’s Shwedagon Pagoda are a memorable introduction to the country. Central Burma, the country’s cultural heart, is dominated by the mighty Irrawaddy River, source of a number of delightful cruises. Here, Mandalay gives way to the spectacular ruins of Bagan whilst the stilted homes of Inle Lake and minority villages of Keng Tung highlight the diversity of peoples and cultures. To the south is the Golden Rock of Kyaiktiyo and old British capital of Mawlamyaing whilst the beaches at Ngapali and Ngwe Saung provide a relaxing end to a holiday. All of our holidays and tours to Burma are unique and fully personalised.
