Long considered a pariah state, Burma has recently emerged from decades of political isolation. The pro-democracy leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, gave her blessing to the return of responsible tourism to the country in mid-2010. A treasure trove of exotic sites and experiences await you.
On a Burma holiday with Insider Journeys, engage with the warm, curious people: ethnic minority tribes at local markets in Kalaw’s mountain villages, nuns swathed in pink at Sagaing Hill nunnery. From simple pleasures enjoyed for centuries, (a sunset over thousands of stupas dotting the Bagan Plains), to contemporary comforts, (an escape to the pristine stretches of beach at Ngapali), this Asian beauty is truly captivating.
