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. 

A best Myanmar package tour normally includes culture expeditions and beach relaxation. With 135 different ethnic groups, Myanmar is also known as one of the world's most diverse countries which has a rich history and panoply of cultural and religious traditions. The Burmese have preserved traditional values, and are deeply devout in their religion, with a close-knit family system and respect for elders still powerfully observed. Myanmar people are fun-loving and festivals form the centre of Myanmar social life, with each month having its own festive occasion. Thus, before scheduling your tours to Myanmar, do not miss to check the festival time in that month.

Check weather before you go:

Before planning for a Myanmar tour, do not forget to check timing and weather. Myanmar is located in the monsoon region of Asia with three seasons in a year: the cool, relatively dry northeast monsoon (late October to mid-February), the hot, dry inter-monsoonal season (mid-February to mid-May), and the rainy southwest monsoon (mid-May to late October).

Fun Facts for your best Myanmar holiday:

  • There are no family or surnames in Burma
  • The giving of a name depends on the day of the week a child was born. The name must include one or more of the birth day’s consonants. There is one group for each day of the week (which incidentally has 8 days, Wednesday being divided into two days for astrological purposes).
  • Around Pagodas there are shrines for each of the 8 days and it is auspicious to worship at ones’ relevant shrine.
  • The Burmese lunar calendar has exactly 28 days in each month
  • Festivals take place according to the position of the moon – usually the full moon day. Better you can arrange your tours to Myanmar in this time.
  • Pagodas (stupas) or Temples were conceived as visual monuments to Buddha. Generally, they don’t have an interior. They are cosmic symbols, their presence benefits mankind and their construction will benefit a donor’s rebirth (merits) … to eventual enlightenment. This is why Burma’s landscape is littered by millions of them
  • Burmese people put great faith in nats (spirits)
  • Every house (note every) has a family shrine to the Lord Buddha and household nats.

If you have two weeks or so, the very first Myanmar tour package should be for "the big four" of the country, situated nearby one another in the center of Myanmar: Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay, and Inle Lake. Each one of these, though, is worth a private visit of several days. Distinctive design, patterns, details, and ornaments at any temple or relics, the surrounding scenery, etc. will astonish you and leave an unforgettable impression of the talent and rich spiritual-religious life of the locals. Let’s browse through our best-selling Myanmar tour packages below to find your favored itineraries and attractions.

The best time to visit Myanmar is from November to February as the cool breeze blows most of the country. On the other hand, March to May is hotter, especially in the plains near Bagan and Mandalay. The temperatures also change by altitude so the hill stations, lakes and Himalayan foothills are far cooler than the southern lowland and coastal regions.

Others are in the rainy season, especially, sometimes at the peak of this season, some regions become inaccessible and some beaches have to suffer the high winds and heavy rainfall that batter the coast annually.

In Myanmar, the culinary style of the coastal region differs from inland areas. The coastal region, including Yangon, fish sauce and ngapi (fermented seafood) are more favored. For inland provinces, they often use more meat and sometimes fish and shrimp. Rice is the main course of their meals.

A traditional Myanmar meal includes a bowl of soup, rice, several meat curries, and ngapi yay with tozaya (vegetables for dipping).

Myanmar cuisine concepts are inspired by neighboring countries such as China, India and Thailand. The identity of Myanmar food is identified by their own cooking and processing methods. Moreover, the myriad local ethnic minorities also have their distinct culinary, which are worth experiencing.

Please leave your inquiries to our email help@threeland.com or visit our website www.threeland.com if you need more details.

Despite social issues, Myanmar is a worth-visit country for travelers with abundant exciting natural sites as well as unspoiled cultures of indigenous residents.

Myanmar’s landscapes are truly breathtaking from dreamy beaches, the lush lowland, immense Inle Lake, extensive Irrawaddy River to mystic jungles, majestic mountains and the rugged highlands.

History also creates a variety of idiosyncratic sites that are inscribed as UNESCO Heritages such as Bagan, Pyu Ancient Cities. Moreover, Myanmar is obviously the homeland to thousands of unrepeatable temples and pagodas. Cultural discovery trips are also favored by a lot of visitors.

When mentioning Myanmar cuisine, it is a big mistake when we skip Tea leaf salad or Lephet - the most famous dish of Burmese. The dish is versatile to be eaten as a snack, an appetizer or, coupled with a plate of rice or even a stimulant to prevent sleep.

Locals use a repertoire of ingredients, transform and process them in diverse ways, creating unique dishes not found in any other cuisine. Besides Lephet, to have a perfect Myanmar tour, visitors should seek out Shan-style rice - rice cooked with turmeric, Tea shops, Burmese curry, Nangyi thoke, Mohinga, etc.

Thank you for choosing Threeland Travel to be your local friend in Myanmar.

In Myanmar vacations, visitors find it irresistible shopping eye-catching souvenirs, lacquerware, gemstones, handicrafts, silk, artifacts, etc set out in markets and attractions.
