Burma (Myanmar) holidays

Rudyard Kipling described Burma (Myanmar) ‘quite unlike any place you know about’ and that still rings true today. In fact, with its recent history of isolation this is a country few people beyond its borders know well.

Now that its doors are open to tourism you can become one of the privileged few to discover what this exotic, mystic land has to offer. In some senses little has changed here since colonial times, though outside influences are now just beginning to penetrate the main cities. Away from these you’ll still find villages and rural areas where people wear traditional dress as part of everyday life, travel with a horse and cart and earn their living as their fathers and forefathers did. Yet this is not a land set in aspic, it is changing, evolving, and to witness this gradual transformation is part of the fascination for the visitor.

There are temples, monasteries and pagodas seemingly at every turn. This is a deeply religious society, where Buddhist monks are revered. The Burmese are wonderfully welcoming. Wherever you go you’ll see smiling faces, people eager to meet you and share their lives, culture and country with you. A visit to this special land will leave you feeling enlightened and enriched.
