Myanmar Holidays

A country virtually untouched by the trappings of modern life, a holiday in Myanmar (formerly Burma) is like stepping back in time.

Wander past thousands of temples rising from lakeside mist, ride a horse and cart past colonial era-mansions, and meditate with monks in the glistening morning sun. Expect warm smiles and an enthusiastic sense of humour wherever you go in Myanmar, a nation scattered with beautiful pagodas and stunning backdrops. Take a hot air balloon flight over the landscape, explore Mandalay Hill and visit the floating villages on Inle Lake to meet local Intha people and enjoy a spot of bird watching. 

Combine your trip to Myanmar with more of the Far East: tour nearby Cambodia, empire of temples, or visit Laos to find unexplored treasures.
