Discover Burma – A Hidden Gem Waiting to be Explored

Burma - Myanmar

Travel to a country that has been relatively unexplored by tourists and discover a culture a world away from your own by visiting Burma (Myanmar).

Sitting in the crossroads of the great civilizations of India and China, Burma is a hidden gem of Southeast Asia. It stretches from the sparkling islands of the Andaman sea in the south right up into the Himalayan mountain range.

Myanmar still remains one of the most mysterious and undiscovered destinations in the world. A land full of breath-taking beauty and charm, it is relatively untouched by tourism and only recently emerging into the modern world.

The spectacular monuments and ancient cities attest to a vibrant culture that is still home to 135 different ethnic groups.

So what can you expect upon arrival, and why should one embark on such a journey in the first place?

For tourists the country boasts five star properties, boutique hotels and family guest houses in all the major centres, as well as stunning mountain and beach resorts. Myanmar also boasts one of the lowest tourist crime records in the world, so visitors can rest assured their holiday will be carefree from start to finish.

There’s so much to do, such as cruising in style down the mighty Ayeyarwaddy River, drift by hot air balloon over the ancient city of Bagan home to over 2,200 ancient temples and pagodas. Pick out a slice of beach on the blissful Bay of Bengal, or trek through pine forests to minority villages scattered across the Shan Hills. Experience the traditional way of Burmese living and marvel at landscapes that have remained unchanged for centuries.
