The Story

Best time to go: October - April
Best for: Longer Journeys, Repeat Visitors, Adventure & Off-the-beaten track, Cultural & Immersive

Everything can of course be tailored, but here is our idea on how to travel to Burma if you have more time on your hands and like to do things a little more in depth than a shorter classic tour of Burma. Naturally, we will provide the very best private guides and transfers to ensure the whole itinerary runs like clockwork, tailoring day-to-day experiences that are based totally around your interests. Most guests don’t usually make their way out to Bago, once known as Pegu, located about an hour from Yangon. You work your way through Hpa-An and Golden Rock, which gives you a chance to get off-the-beaten track into the rural heartlands of this part of Burma. You will of course see the major sights, such as Yangon and the temples and pagodas of Bagan.

Customise Your Itinerary

We can tweak and change any element of this itinerary and you can depart on any day you want, add nights here and there, and we can fully customise your day-to-day experiences depending on your interests. Here are just a few ideas of many that we can look at and discuss when we come to plan your tailor-made itinerary.

Idea 1

Of course we can shorten the itinerary! We can rework the itinerary to see anything you might want to see.

Idea 2

Surprisingly, there is still more to see in Burma. You can head north to trek around Putao, maybe head into the Chin Hills or visit the south and the Mergui Archipelago
