Myanmar (Burma) is an intriguing destination, and is the less explored of the Southeast Asian countries. The country was closed off from foreign visitors for decades, and only in recent years has it opened up its borders to the wider world. For that reason, it’s retained much of its charm. A trip to Myanmar feels a little like stepping back in time to Asia thirty years ago, and the locals (renowned for their friendliness) are just as curious about you as you are about them. Many recognize Myanmar from the popular images of hot air balloons sailing through the skies over thousands of ancient temples in Bagan, but the country has endless beautiful sights such as this. This diverse country is home to around 135 ethnic minorities, meaning there is a huge range of delicious food and some incredible architecture and religious monuments, like the glittering Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon.

We have a range of holiday packages and Myanmar tours to suit any traveler: whether you’re traveling solo, with friends or with family.
