If you’re looking for a different and exciting destination then look no further than Myanmar. If you’re looking for an untouched culture, beautiful architecture, an incredible mix of people and ethnic tribes and you want to see the ‘real’ Asia, you need to visit Myanmar!
Boat Journeys - Everything from one hour to week-long cruises can be arranged in Myanmar on rivers, lakes and the ocean. By far the most popular cruises are on the Irrawaddy River, winding its way from Mandalay to Bagan.
Trekking and Biking are fantastic ways to get away from the tourist areas and the buzz of the city and enjoy moments in some of Myanmar’s most beautiful locations. Trekking will take you far from civilisation into spectacular landscapes where you can enjoy time exploring on foot.
Blessing ceremonies and rituals are a keystone of Burmese culture and something not to be missed. One of the most popular is a blessing by a monk to wish health, happiness and safety before a journey.
As with sunrise, sunset in Bagan is also a crowded affair so escaping to one of the Irrawaddy’s sandbanks for a Sandbank Dinner is a great way to escape the crowds. Take a private table surrounded by candles and enjoy a delicious meal served to you.
Myanmar is home to stunning beaches and, thanks to the fact that they are relatively undeveloped, they are very romantic. Quiet, unspoiled and beautiful Myanmar beaches were made for romance and complete relaxation.
Idyllic stretches of palm fringed sand hardly come more perfectly formed than at Ngapali Beach. Heading north, at Sittwe you can enjoy the towns’ beaches and watch the sun set over the Bay of Bengal. 25 miles west of Pathein is Chaung Tha Beach where many locals head when they want to relax.
