Myanmar Tours & Travel
Looking for Adventure and authenticity? Myanmar's got it! For us, Myanmar equals authenticity and adventure and what we would consider a relatively undiscovered part of Indochina. Exploring Myanmar, you will find a nation of multiple ethnic groups with men wearing the sarong-like longyi and women with faces smothered in thanakha and cheroot-smoking grannies. In the street scenery horses and bullocks are still a common rural transportation. The country remains true to traditional values even though a lot of changes has been going on the last few years. If you are looking for adventure and authentic travel then Myanmar is a really good bet for your next holiday!
A country for the traveller who goes beyond trails
Myanmar, also known as Burma, is located in Southeast Asian and borders Thailand, China, Laos, India and Bangladesh.
Though it’s the second largest country in Southeast Asia, it’s still rather unspoiled by tourists as it has been somewhat inaccessible for many years.
In recent years however, an increasing number of travellers have found its way to this beautiful country as the government have eased restrictions for foreigners and more regions are becoming safer to travel.
Among the highlights for travellers are the sunrise over Bagan temple from a hot air balloon, watching the fishermen at Inle Lake, visiting the world-famous U Bein Bridge in Mandalay and the beauty of Yangon’s temples and pagodas.
Old traditions meet new experiences
Myanmar is an ideal destination for travellers seeking new experiences away from the beaten path.
With pristine islands and beaches, the south of Burma is a top destination for world class island-hopping.
However, not many venture there because the south of Thailand takes all the focus. Don’t let yourself get distracted from this great opportunity for a real island adventure!
Likewise, many tourists head for northern Thailand to experience tribal culture and ethnic villages. However, just across the border in Myanmar, you’ll find local villages unspoiled by tourists to get an unforgettable cultural experience without all the tourists.
Travel that feels just like home
Besides a rich culture the country has a very friendly and welcoming people. The locals are gentle, humorous, engaging, considerate, inquisitive and passionate – and they are fascinated by the presence of outsiders coming to their country. Do yourself a favour and slow down, sit, listen and interact with them and you will realise that the locals completed your Myanmar adventure.
When travelling in Myanmar you may notice a diverse nation which according to the Myanmar government covers eight different major national ethnical races and 135 ethnical groups. The ethical race Bamar – also known as Burman and Burmese, make up the majority of the population with 68%. Slip into a day in the life of the Bagan countryside for moments you’ll never forget.
