Highlights of Burma

13 Day Tour, from £3140 per person

Burma, or Myanmar, is still one of the undiscovered gems of South East Asia. Long cut off from the outside world, Burma retains an unspoilt, spiritual air about it. Stand on the roof of an ancient ruined temple overlooking the Irrawaddy River in Bagan and visit the bustling Nyaung Oo Market and allow the local women to put tannika on your face to protect you from the sun. Enjoy a leisurely boat trip along Inle Lake and watch the process of cheroot making in one of the local cottage industries, all will add up to making your visit to Myanmar one of the most fulfilling holidays you have ever experienced.

This is an individual Burma holiday which includes private sightseeing, all transfers and accommodation. Price is based on four-star hotels. For upgrades, prices for five-star options and information on a Mergui Archipelago beach extension, please speak to one of our Regent Burma Travel Specialists.

Reviews

Our guide in Bagan, Htay Win had a first rate knowledge of local stupas. We saw more Buddha's than we knew existed! The Thazin Garden Hotel here was excellent with its own candle lit Pagoda in the garden. We visited a local craft workshop which was excellent. The car journey from Bagan to Mandalay via Mt. Popa was an excellent day with stops to see and meet local people. We stopped off at a petrified forest, this was well worth it and should be included on future itineraries. In Mandalay we were shown around by Bruce, he gave us an excellent tour. For local knowledge, good safe places to eat and enthusiasm to help we were spoilt! The U Bein's bridge is a must for inclusion on the itinerary.  All the drivers were good, steady and safe. Plentiful free supply of sealed bottled water everywhere - car, boat and hotels. This was really appreciated and excellent from a health viewpoint. We would recommend visiting Myanmar and would go again. This was probably one of the best trips we have had. Ever. Excellent service from your office.
