From a skyline of time-worn temples in Bagan to Yangon’s gleaming Shwedagon Pagoda, discover where to visit in Burma

Burma’s political isolation has kept it inaccessible and undeveloped for many years, but as the country continues to open up, visitors can choose from an increasing number of places to go. Our specialists have visited here regularly for many years and can recommend attractions in Burma to match your interests, tailoring a journey specifically for you.

Wander the city streets of Mandalay and Yangon to find colonial architecture, gilded pagodas and handicraft markets. See examples of the nation’s deep-rooted Buddhist beliefs in Bagan’s centuries-old temples and Mawlamyine’s more eclectic collection of stupas and statues.

More than 100 ethnic groups have settled across the country, each with its own cultural traditions. In the east, the Chin people living around Mindat sport arresting tattooed faces, while in the western town of Kyaingtong the local hill tribes still wear traditional dress. There’s natural beauty to admire, too, from Inle Lake to the deserted beaches of the Myeik Archipelago.
