Burma Holidays

Experience the allure of the exotic east

On your Burma holiday, become an intrepid explorer and delve into the cultural treasures of a country little touched by the outside world.

It’s little wonder the people of Burma are so warm and welcoming. The country has only recently emerged from decades of political isolation, and now that it has, the locals are free to share their pride in their country’s treasures with travellers willing to plunge themselves into this exotic land.

As you’ll quickly find, Burma is bursting at the seams with cultural gems waiting to be discovered - and because the country is so unspoiled, you’ll feel quite the intrepid explorer as you unearth them, from the jewel-encrusted Shwedagon Pagoda to the sweeping temple-strewn plains of Bagan.

  • Traditional breakfast at a teahouse

    Perhaps a left-over from the British, Burma has an obsession with tea and visiting a tea house is a thoroughly local experience. Try the local noodles or mohinga, a fish soup with rice noodles that is widely considered to be Burma’s national dish, all washed down with a steaming cup of milky tea.
