Subject to a long period of isolation, Myanmar has remained relatively untouched by the outside world. Consequently, its temple-strewn landscapes and royal palaces survive refreshingly unspoiled. As the country has opened up, our specialists have explored Myanmar’s well-known cities and its little visited villages and countryside. Taking this first-hand knowledge, we can create a tailor-made Myanmar holiday, shaped around your preferences.

Natural attractions stretch from the highlands in the north to the pristine Myeik Archipelago in the south, and the sinuous Ayeyarwady River provides a cruising route between Mandalay and the Temples of Bagan and into more remote regions. Almost every skyline is punctuated with a temple stupa: Bagan boasts a collection of over 3,000. City streets are lined with remnants of colonial rule while mountain-top villages maintain tribal traditions. Probably the country’s greatest asset are its people, whose infectious spirit and genuine smiles are hard to beat.
