Myanmar Travel

Myanmar is a magical country, the largest in Southeast Asia, where people kiss by sniffing, a week has two Wednesdays and the main unit of currency was determined by astrology. Within its borders are more than 135 different ethnic groups, a landscape that rises from white sand beaches to 19,295-foot Hkakabo Razi, fairy tale pagodas and skilled craftspeople, making Myanmar travel a cultural experience that can be customized to you.

Visit for as little as 8 days to tour Myanmar’s highlights, or stay a full 20 days for an expedition filled with hiking and meeting hill tribe villages that are not normally touched by tourists. However long you yearn to stay, Myanmar travel provides simplicity and numerous outlets for exploration.

A country caught in a time warp and isolated from the rest of the world for over 30 years, Myanmar travel is finally helping to modernize the country and new construction and tourist markets are popping up throughout the country.

Country Highlights

  • Experience a country recently opened after 30 years of isolation
  • Overnight with a hill tribe, hike to ethnic villages and shop colorful markets
  • Boat on remote rivers, relax on sandy beaches, explore jungles and mountains
  • Fly over the temples of Bagan on a dawn balloon ride
