Why we love Myanmar
The latest insight from our time spent exploring Myanmar.
Visually, Myanmar is spectacular. From the ancient temples of Bagan & Mrauk-U to the cacophony of Mandalay, from the northern snow-capped mountains to the tranquility of Inle Lake, Myanmar provokes the senses with a series of challenging contradictions. Holidays in Myanmar can be full of adventure and memorable experiences.
History & Culture
Myanmar today offers a rich and varied travel experience that takes you back in time. Commonly referred to as the “Golden Land”, Myanmar is a deeply religious Buddhist country with countless numbers of glistening temples and ancient monuments that date back thousands of years. Although the country is still very traditional, there are visible western remnants from the British colonial era as evident in the grand faded colonial architecture in Yangon.
Myanmar is a vast country waiting to be explored and there are multiple ways to do this. Cruise the Irrawady and Chidwin rivers on a luxury boat. Soar over the Temples of Bagan at sunrise in a hot air balloon and ride through traditional villages around Inle Lake. If you're interested in the best beaches in Myanmar then give one of our consultants a call for their top tips.
