Myanmar with Mrauk U

Discover the beauty and culture of Myanmar (Burma).

13 days from £2300pp plus international flights.

Temples and pagodas, palaces and villages, lakes and mountains, Burma is a land of contrasts and on this holiday you will experience it all.

  • The plain of temples at Bagan
  • See traditional crafts and skills
  • Boat trip on Inle Lake
  • Wander around the pagodas of Mrauk U
  • Visit a Chin village

Myanmar (Burma) is a country that exerts a strong influence over those that visit. The rich mix of history, culture and scenery coupled with the mystery of a land emerging from a long isolation from the rest of the world is truly intriguing. On this holiday you visit the main sights such as Mandalay, Yangon, Bagan and Inle Lake, as well as others off the beaten track: have lunch in a local village, watch craftsmen demonstrate skills largely unchanged for centuries and walk among hundreds of pagodas undisturbed by crowds of tourists.

We use domestic flights to reduce travelling time, allowing you to visit otherwise hard to reach locations, and when travelling by road you'll have the benefit of a private air-conditioned vehicle. Knowledgeable guides bring each site vividly to life, giving you insights into eras gone by when mighty kingdoms held sway over large tracts of land, and you'll see the palaces and pagodas that stand as testament to their former glory and wealth. It's not all about the past though. You spend time in villages near Bagan, Inle Lake and Mrauk U to witness daily life and learn about the different ethnic groups that co-exist in present day Myanmar.

In a shade under 2 weeks you will experience a whole new world and will, almost certainly, fall under the spell that Myanmar casts over those fortunate enough to travel there.
