Holidays to Myanmar
Myanmar, perhaps better known as Burma, is one of the most fascinating and beautiful countries in Southeast Asia and a nation emerging from the shadows of international isolation. For decades Myanmar’s hard-line government left the country isolated which in turn restricted its development, but recent political changes, and a new democratic government, mean that Myanmar is now on the rise and changing rapidly with infrastructure, hotels and airlines improving all the time.
For the visitor, Myanmar's newly found stability offers a greater variety of ways to see this complex land. You still have a country rich in natural resources offering incredible landscapes, some truly breath-taking man made edifices, like the temples at Bagan or the shimmering golden Shwedagon, and a naturally warm and friendly people - but now you can add an element of spice to your tour of Myanmar by taking a balloon ride over Mandalay or Inle Lake; sailing through the Mergui Archipelago on a luxury yacht; enjoying boutique creature comforts in the Himalayan Foothills; or cruising along one of Myanmar's majestic waterways like the Irrawaddy River.
For anyone who has not been to Myanmar before you will encounter a wonderful land that is bound to surprise and delight, whilst for those thinking of a return visit there is plenty of scope to see more of this enchanting land.
