Burma (Myanmar) holidays

Explore colonial Yangon, visit the temples of Bagan or relax by Inle Lake on a tailor-made tour of Burma

Burma has been subject to a long period of inaccessibility, which in turn has left it relatively untouched by the outside world. As a consequence, its landscapes, colourful cultures and strong beliefs all remain refreshingly unspoiled. Though a beautiful country, it is the genuine delight, wonder and hospitality with which travellers are greeted that keeps people coming back here time after time.
