"Opening up after years in the wilderness, Myanmar (or Burma as it used to be known) is one of the Far East’s most captivating countries."

Escorted Tours and Holidays in Myanmar

Formally known as Burma, Myanmar is an up-and-coming destination that’s often called the ‘Golden Land’ and is packed full of iconic cultural and religious sites. It is, in fact, bursting with exciting attractions and has become one of Southeast Asia’s most intriguing countries, which explains why it’s perfect for escorted tours and holidays.

Bagan is a spectacular historical city and a real highlight of every Myanmar holiday. The sunrises and sunsets are not to be missed, nor are the countless ancient temples and pagodas throughout the city. Many visitors choose to ride a hot air balloon over the city or cycle their way around the thousands of temples of Bagan. If you prefer, you can book an escorted tour to ensure you don’t miss any of the top things to do and see in the area.  

The biggest and busiest city in Myanmar is Yangon, a place full of food, character and excitement, not forgetting its relaxing parks and 65-metre long Buddha. When here, you won’t be able to miss the golden Shwedagon Pagoda, the capital’s main attraction and one of the most beautiful and important religious monument in the country. There’s also Chinatown with its many tempting food stalls, as well as Bogyoke Aung San Market where locals and visitors love to shop for artwork, clothes and souvenirs.

If you want to check our Myanmar’s former royal capital and its religious and economic hub, you’ll need to venture to the exciting city of Mandalay. This area is home to a wealth of history and impressive historic structures, yet it never seems to be overcrowded with tourists. You can go beyond the classic sights with an escorted tour or choose to walk around the fascinating highlights, which include Mandalay Palace, Mandalay Hill, Sandamuni Pagoda and the U-Bien Bridge. When you’re done sightseeing, you can sample some delicious street food or grab a meal at one of the local restaurants.  

To experience a different side of Myanmar, head to the heart of Shan State to see the Inle Lake, famous for its different tribes, stilt houses and floating gardens, markets and villages. Not only will you get the chance to see how the locals live but you’ll also be blown away by the scenery and amazing views. Otherwise known as the ‘Venice of Myanmar,’ Inle Lake is considered a natural treasure and one of the most magical areas in the country, so we highly recommend you take a boat tour during your Myanmar holiday. 

After you’ve had your fix of culture, history and city life, make your way to Ngapali Beach for some much-needed relaxation. Consisting of a few sandy bays, Ngapali Beach is blessed with palm trees, white sand, crystal-clear waters and sea sports, making it easy for you to spend an entire day lounging or playing in the sun.


Escorted Tour and Holiday Highlights of Myanmar

  • Bagan: The Bagan temples are at the top of most people’s Myanmar holiday list, and one of the best ways to view them is to take an escorted tour that includes a thrilling hot air balloon ride.
  • Yangon: If you need only one reason to visit the wonderful city of Yangon, you can trust us when we say it’s Shwedagon Pagoda. Having said that, there’s plenty to discover here, from the buzzing markets and delicious food to the atmospheric streets and old colonial buildings.
  • Mandalay: The more time you spend in Mandalay, the more you’ll want to explore. There’s so much to take in, like the Palace and U-Bien Bridge, not forgetting the many pagodas, monasteries and teashops, so an escorted walking or cycling tour is always a good option.
  • Inle Lake: Hailed one of the most stunning lakes on planet earth, Inle Lake will, without a shadow of a doubt, help to make your Myanmar holiday unforgettable. You must take a ride on a wooden boat to get closer to all the ‘floating’ sights on the water.
