What is the best way to get from London to Myanmar (Burma)?
What is the best way to get from London to Myanmar (Burma)? Only there are two multinational airfields in Myanmar (Burma) - Yangon (Rangoon) and Mandalay. Although you cannot travel directly from London to these two cities, you can do so with just one stopover. We' re a fully ATOL-bound travel agency and are pleased to organise your overseas travel for you, but many of our clients decide to make their own arrangements directly, and that's perfectly all right with us.
There are two ways to get the best Myanmar-London flights: Thai-airways flies from London to Yangon or Mandalay with a brief stay in Bangkok in only 15 h. A lot of clients decide to take a flight back to Yangon and from Mandalay or the other way round.
Alternatively, you can take a trip back to Bangkok (with BA or Thai Airways) or even Singapore or Hong Kong (Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific or BA) - these are often around £500. If so, buy your Myanmar connections separate - a Bangkok-Yangon to Bangkok trip can only be £30 (Remember that there are two Bangkok airfields linked by a 45-minute taxicab - so make sure you fly from and to the same airport).
If you would like further information about Myanmar, please let us know - we will be glad to help you. Mandalay is the second largest town in Myanmar with one of the most impressive name in the area and the gate to the great trek in Hsipaw in the northern part.
It is one of the best places to leave the well-worn paths and see the countryside of Myanmar. The Bagan is the old village that really put Myanmar (Burma) on the roadmaps. Featuring more than 2,000 historical Stupa, sanctuaries and Pagoda trees scattered over a huge area, you really have to see it to believe it.
We' ll make sure you get to the best places for sunsets or sunrises to see this astonishing spread of sanctuaries over the valleys - or better still, ask us for a hot air flight! The former Rakhine capitol boasts a dramatically diverse group of shrines and shrines (newer than Bagan's) that look like a fort because they are made of rock with long winding inlets.
You' ll be able to see the past era's colorful architectural heritage, taste some of the county's finest cuisine on the streets and see the striking Shwedagon Pagoda, which can be seen from almost everywhere in Yangon and is one of the most venerated places for Buddhism in the whole wide globe, preserving the eight hair of Buddha.
You can discover secluded remains, holy sanctuaries and unspoilt shores from here. This group of about 800 untouched and picturesque blank sandy isles off Myanmar's capital city. It is now customary to discover this exceptional country of gold towers, magnificent churches and untouched sands. Myanmar, or Burma as it was formerly known, has only recently opened its gates to the tourist industry after the 2010 warship.
We' ve travelled Myanmar for month and tried everything from Ayeyarwady River cruising to luxury seaside fashion boutiques and simple rooms off the well-trodden paths. We observed the sundown over Bagan from the less known sanctuaries, had a newly prepared Myanmar meal in a house on stilt bars over Lake Inle and took the best of the shaky, swaying trains that led through Myanmar's most beautiful area.
