Burma is a magnificent country. From the rolling Shan Hills in the east, to the cultural centres of Yangon and Mandalay, the countless stupas of the Bagan temples, and the tropical beaches of Rakhine state, the country lives up to its reputation as an unspoilt gem. The people of Burma are known for their friendliness and hospitality.
Experience Travel has spent extensive time in Burma. Our consultant Lyria Eastley, who speaks Burmese, gives her impressions. "Change really is coming rapidly to the country, and it's opening-up to tourism on a wider scale. This makes it a great time to go - it still feels tentatively new to international tourism, which puts it top of the list for any intrepid traveller looking to see a truly unique, unspoilt, diverse and magical corner of the world.
We speak from direct recent experience, logistical know-how and unrivalled product knowledge. Having a guide in Burma is necessary still, but we try our hardest to make sure that you also get 'off the beaten track' as much as possible. Want to check out the best place in town for local food? We'll get you there. Want to explore the less touristy markets? We'll make sure you get the chance.
