MYANMAR | TOURS TO THE GOLDEN LAND

Known to the world as The Golden Land for its fertile land, mineral wealth, unique cultures and 2,600 years of Buddhist civilization, Myanmar possesses so many treasures, requiring more than one visit to experience. For Myanmar tours, we recommending splitting visits amongst different expeditions, regions and seasons in order to experience the two countries to the fullest.

If you can dedicate two weeks for your tours to Myanmar to explore this country, we recommend focusing on the big four: Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay and Inle Lake. The distinctive design, patterns and ornaments at the temples or relics combined with breathtaking surrounding scenery will astonish you and leave you with an everlasting impression of the brilliant and rich spiritual religious life of the locals. 

A boat trip on the Inle Lake at the end will wrap up the trip with extraordinary peace and fulfilment while simultaneously opening the door for further discoveries, as the lake connects with top trekking routes. For additional trips, you can either spend your time in the country’s Southeast, where the Golden Rock pagoda marks the most important pilgrimage point of Myanmar’s Buddhism, or head South for highlights of untouched beauty, magnificent seaside view and delicious seafood of the Mon and Kayin states. In case you want to have an off-the-beaten-track experience, a long trek in the Kachin state in the far North, with snowy mountains, Crystal Rivers with boutique local houses and relic would be ideal.

Nowadays, Myanmar tours are becoming popular with its distinctive features and the government under State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi is striving to improve its infrastructure and tourist safety in every region and providing stable jobs to the locals, whom provides the strongest support and care towards visitors, with their hospitality and kindness.
