Why Travel to Myanmar

Myanmar, why go to Myanmar?

Take your time to find out why a trip to Myanmar should be included in your next itinerary rather than in other destinations in Asia. These are the top tips from our destination experts for your private and tailor-made Myanmar tour. The majority of trips to Myanmar include Yangon, Inle Lake, Bagan and Mandalay. Of all the Asians I have met, the people of Myanmar are the nicest and friendliest.

Myanmar Ultimate

In Bagan you will be greeted by a plane with over 1000 beautiful shrines and mysterious Stupa's - and you will have the opportunity to float over them in a warm aeroplane. You will pass fishermen's communities and houses on piers, as well as village fairs and old-fashioned merchant ships on the powerful Ayeyarwaddy River.

While Mandalay and Inle Lake have their own allure. Overnight stay in a luxury room at the Savoy Hotel. In the afternoons, stroll through the craft stands of Bogyoke Market before taking a quiet trip through Kandawgyi Lake, which culminates in the gold Shwedagon Pagoda to observe the sundown.

Their early bird's-eye view of Bagan is dotted with the literal abundance of thousand shrines and stupa that rise from the vast expanses of plain. You will visit the breathtaking Gu Byauk Gyi and Ananda and the Shwezigon Pagoda - famous for its huge Buddha sculptures - before you visit the Manuha, Nanbaya and Myingaba Gu Byaukgyi Temple in the Myinkkaba town.

Overnight stay in an Orchideenvilla in the Aureum Palace Hotel. You will climb the RV Paukan on Bagan Aye Yar Jetty and sail along the Ayeyarwady to see some of the traditional fishermen and merchant ships that operate on Myanmar's Nile cue. Overnight stay in an above decks cab on the motorhome Paukan.

You will be picked up at Sagaing or Gawwein Steg and taken through the fairytale Amarapura with its Mahagandayon Buddhist Monastery - home to over 1000 Buddhist friars - before continuing to the old U Bein Teak Bridge and Bagaya Monastery. You will see the biggest tapestry books in the whole wide range of Kalaga products.

The trip begins with a two-hour trip to Pyin Oo Lwin, where you can visit a former UK mountain railway terminus, which today houses an extraordinary botanic garden with over 480 different types of plants, bushes and plants. Accommodation in one of the luxury rooms at Sedona Hotel Mandalay.

More than half an hours flying time will land in Heho, where you will be picked up and taken through the valley of Nyaungshwe. After lunch we will show you the real beauties of Lake Inle, with its old traditionally built yachts, swimming pools, fishermen' s yachts and unspoilt towns such as Inpawkhon - famous for its weavery.

You will also see the locals who live in cloves in water when they live in buildings made of wood - Thalee Oo is particularly scenic - and visit peanuts, clothing, sugar and vegetables farmers, a functioning ricemill, a convent and Ywa Thit. Three-night stay in a lakeside cottage at Inle Princess Resort.

Nowadays you will go back by ferry across the pond and take a trip to Heho, from where you will be flying to Thandwe. Good-bye to magic Myanmar. From Thandwe you take a plane to Yangon, where you can circumnavigate the town with your own chauffeur, before taking an overnight trip to Bangkok and on to London and arrive the next morning.
