4 - Very Good
“An enjoyable trip. Whilst you are clearly following the 'tourist trail', there are few enough tourists that you still feel that you are seeing the real country, and it doesn't take much effort to get to spots where there are no other tourists around. You visit a lot of temples, but they were all so varied that I didn't get bored of visiting more.”

“A brilliant trip showing the main highlights and areas of a big country. Lots of travelling but all locations visited were worth it.”

3 - Average
“Burma has some amazing and instantly recognisable sights and sites, including temples, scenery and towns. Scwedagon Pagada on the first day was an amazing introduction to Yangon, with the chance to see it in both early evening and darkness. I also enjoyed visiting the worlds largest book at Kuthodaw Pagoda in Mandalay.
I loved the outdoor days, the cruise on the Irrawaddy to Mingun and Sagaing, hiking and cycling in Kalaw and the day out on Inle Lake seeing the fishermen at work, their bamboo homes, floating gardens and the various cottage industries. I also enjoyed time roaming the towns of Bagan, Kalaw and Nyangshwe and their various adjoining villages and cottage industries.
However, I found the pace of this trip far too slow, particularly in Yangon and Bagan. I am aware the trip is labelled leisurely/moderate, however for me, the first part of the trip spent far too much time on the air conditioned bus. I expected the highlight of this trip to be Bagan, in fact I was desperately disappointed with the 2.5 days spent in Bagan. We spent the two full days on the bus visiting nine temples, Mount Popa and a sunset temple, with only 40 mins allocated for a walk in the temple forest. I would have expected a full day of walking or cycling amongst the temples. Bagan has 4000-5000 temples, we drove past them! At some point in the future I hope to be able to go back and do it properly.
I also felt the pace in which we visited in particular the Scwedagon Pagado and the inside of temples in Bagan was far too slow, there was far too much pausing and walking slowly.”

“A truly wonderful trip. There is so much to see and do in this country. Go soon as the feeling is that there will be big changes over the next few years. There is a real sense of optimism regarding the new government which will come into effect in March this year. The standard of the hotels was much better than I thought it would be from reading the trip notes. The one exception was the Hu Pin hotel at Inle Lake where the bathroom was poor and there was a stagnant water 'moat' outside the front door.”

Myanmar - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Myanmar, also known as Burma, is an incredible melting pot of cultures. Bordering India, Bangladesh, China, Laos and Thailand, the country is home to more than 100 ethnic groups. While the country was ruled by an oppressive military group until 2011, Myanmar is gradually on its way towards democracy. Heavily influenced by Buddhism, a trip to Myanmar will open you to spiritual atmosphere, whether you’re visiting its traditional temples or its serene beaches.

Tour Highlights

  • Trace the intricate wood carvings of the Shwenandaw Monastery
  • Stare in awe at the golden peak of the Shwedagon Pagoda
  • Cross the U Bein Bridge across Taungthaman Lake, the longest teak bridge in the world
  • Experience the sunrise over the Temples of Bagan
  • Hike the volcano Mount Popa for incredible views
  • Count the hundreds of shrines at the Sandamuni Pagoda in Mandalay

Travel Tips

  • If visiting a market near a temple, you'll probably come across a vendor selling caged birds. These aren't pets but are rather meant to be bought and set free by worshipers so they can earn good karma.
  • WiFi can be found in Myanmar, but it's often very, very slow. Book as much of your travel and accommodation online as possible before your trip to avoid having to use the internet while in the country.
  • Cash is key. The majority of shops and restaurants in Myanmar do not accept card payment. Bring both U.S. dollars and kyats with you: U.S. dollars for large transactions (hotel bills, transportation tickets, etc.) and kyats for smaller, everyday purchases.
  • As the country continues to develop, its tourism infrastructure is trying to catch up with the influx of tourists. Book as much as you can in advance for a tour in Myanmar, as many areas of the country do not have adequate hotels and easy transportation.
  • Men, get ready to shake up your wardrobe. The longyi is a wraparound skirt worn by both men and women in Myanmar. Visitors are encouraged to wear them as well!

Myanmar has seasonal weather so please do check up on the best time to visit Myanmar before planning your tour.
