Having been off the radar for over 15 years, Burma has just been voted the ‘Top Country’ in the Wanderlust Travel Awards and it’s easy to see why. Rich in history and ancient tradition, Burma offers visitors the rare opportunity to explore a country that has until now, remained half-hidden from the rest of the world.
Burma’s unique culture has been influenced by neighbouring countries India and China, and its traditions have remained the same since British colonial times. Famous sights include the former capital - Rangoon (Yangon), which still retains much of its colonial character; Inle Lake – home to stilted villages and unique floating gardens; Mandalay - the last royal capital of the Burmese kingdom, and the Plain of Bagan - one of the world’s premier archaeological wonders.
Our tours combine the iconic sights of Burma with it’s off the beaten track highlights to ensure you get the most out of your visit. Enabling you to really get under the skin of the country, we explore the sights that only the locals know of and where tourists have not yet ventured.
