Myanmar (Burma)

Turn the clock back with a trip to Burma and find yourself warmly welcomed by the locals. With ancient temples, colourful markets and stunning scenery, Burma (Myanmar) is one of Southeast Asia’s best destinations for an adventurous tailor-made holiday. Situated on the crossroads of two of Asia’s greatest civilisations, India and China, Burma’s travel experiences are simply unparalleled.

Burma, or Myanmar, stretches from the jewelled islands of the Andaman Sea, to the Eastern Himalayan mountain ranges on the border with India and in our opinion is one of the best destinations in Asia. Burma is not always the easiest of Southeast Asian countries to visit in terms of infrastructure and access, but travellers who make the effort are richly rewarded by the stunning views, ancient culture and friendly locals. At Scott Dunn we use the very best private guides and unique experiences to get under the skin of this superb destination providing one of the best tailor-made holiday or honeymoon we can think of. Take a slow boat up the Irrawaddy to Mandalay, relax in a lodge on the shores of misty Inle Lake or enjoy a balloon ride and get a bird’s eye view of the extraordinary temples of Bagan. Wildlife lovers can trek into the forests to spot rare indigenous bird species or something more relaxing, sit back under a palm tree on some of the last truly undisturbed beaches in Asia, with the glistening Bay of Bengal stretching out before you. Home to 135 different ethnic groups, the culture of Burma is as diverse as the landscapes, and there are countless spectacular monuments and ancient cities to be explored by those who venture further afield and get under the skin of this fascinating and authentic corner of Asia.
