Myanmar, formerly known as Burma is an enchanted nation fortunate enough to be barely touched by the 21st century. After long-term isolation, this hidden ‘Golden Land’ is beginning to emerge from the shadows as one of Southeast Asia’s most traditional, charming and spiritual countries.
A visit to Myanmar is like turning back the clock. Phone and internet networks can be unreliable in areas, allowing visitors to connect truly with a culture that emphasises spirituality and admiration towards monks and holy men.
It’s home to some astounding sights too, including the mysterious and striking plain of Bagan. Situated on the banks of the Irrawaddy River, this huge countryside plain is scattered with elegant Buddhist temples, pagodas, stupas and ancient religious ruins. The largest in the world of its kind.

After decades of being off-limits, Myanmar has become one of South-east Asia's most complex yet intriguing destinations. Untouched beaches, ancient temples and a sense of old-world Orient is what’s to be expected in this magical place.
Natural and man-made ancient beauty is placed around every corner in Myanmar. Whether you’re riding a scooter around the Bagan temples or horse-riding through the dirt-tracks at Lake lnle, you’re bound to fall in love with the diverse scenery.
Myanmar offers a rich and varied travel experience that takes you back in time. It’s one of the few Southeast Asian countries where you can still witness strong cultural traditions handed down from generation to generation.
Not often thought of as a beach destination, but the idyllic coastline stretches of Western Myanmar is hard to beat. With gorgeous white sands, lush palm trees and crystal-clear waters, it is one of the most beautiful and undisturbed beach destinations in the world.
an endless array of activities
Watch Bagan’s thousand-strong collection of temples come to life as the sunlight breaks across the plains. There is no better way to experience the beauty of Bagan than from peacefully drifting way up high in a hot air balloon.
The Shwedagon Pagoda is a real treat at any time of day but there is something very special about visiting after dark. Recognised as the most sacred pagoda in Myanmar, this golden beauty illuminates the city at night and is an unmissable attraction to see in Yangon.
Wine tasting may not be the first thing that springs to mind when you think of Myanmar. To the surprise of many travellers, Inle Lake is home to the thriving Red Mountain Estate – a hilltop winery producing some of the best wines in Myanmar.
Visit U-Bein Bridge, the world's longest and oldest teak footbridge. Indulge in drinks and canapés as you watch the sunset from this unique vantage point and one of the most famous sights in all of Myanmar.
Sit back and relax with a refreshing cocktail as you slowly drift along the Irrawaddy River, passing local fishermen and rural villages. View the beautiful temples on the riverside with silhouettes of ancient stupas and pagodas stretching behind as far as the eye can see.
Picture one of the most stunning and serene lakes in the world, famous for its floating villages and golden stupas. Watch as the locals go about their everyday life and witness fishermen practice their unique ‘leg-rowing’ technique.
Get a taste of Yangon’s food culture on a walking tour of the bustling night markets. Downtown Yangon has some tantalising neighbourhood’s including Chinatown and Little India – here you can sample the best food stalls in town for a real flavour of Burmese bites.
Spend an unforgettable evening under the stars with an exclusive dinner, served on a sandbank in the middle of the Irrawaddy River. With the backdrop of Bagan’s magnificent temples, this is an incredible dining experience you will never forget.
