Reasons to Visit Myanmar

  • Boat trips

    The famous Ayeyarwaddy River flows through the heart of the country for 2,000km to a vast Delta region southwest of Yangon and provides an important role in everyday life. A journey on this most majestic of rivers is a highlight of any trip.

  • Hill tribes

    Maynmar is home to an astonishing number of ethnicities each with their own traditional dress and customs, and in many cases, language and religion. For the most rewarding encounters we recommend heading to the hills of Shan state where it’s possible to stay in remote villages and receive the most genuine of welcomes and hospitality.

  • History

    Myanmar is steeped in history and the legacy of various kingdoms and rule is very much in evidence throughout the country from former ancient capitals and grandiose royal palaces around Mandalay to the faded colonial grandeur of Yangon’s municipal buildings built by British hands.

  • Local markets

    Whether you are shopping for gems in Yangon’s Scott Market, betel nut in Kalaw or intricate lacquerware in Bagan there is no better way to immerse yourself in the way of life than to soak up the atmosphere of a local market.

  • Temples

    Wherever you travel in Burma you will only be footsteps away from a temple providing an opportunity to witness the quiet reverence of the Burmese people. Climb up to a viewpoint amongst the ancient stupas of Bagan at sunset, visit stilted temples by boat at Inle Lake or marvel at the shimmering Shwedagon Pagoda.
