Best time to visit
Although Myanmar is accessible year-round, the best months for travelers are September to March when the temperatures are cooler and the weather is dry. For those willing to put up with a bit of rain and heat, the off-season months see far fewer crowds and prices drop significantly.
Where to go
One could spend a lifetime exploring Myanmar and not see all that it has to offer! But for first-time visitors, the best introduction to the country’s diversity would include the bustling yet traditional city of Yangon, Bagan’s ancient pagodas, Mandalay’s former royal capitals and the majestic Inle Lake.
What to do
Whether an adrenaline-junky or a culture buff, Myanmar has something for you. Browse for art at Yangon’s galleries, trek to remote hill tribe villages in the Shan State, cruise in style down the Irrawaddy River, meet with monks in a countryside monastery or dozens of other options. Myanmar is the ideal place to indulge in your passions and discover a culture unlike any other.
This 5-day Myanmar introduction showcases the best of the two cities plus ensures you forge a genuine connection with the people and culture. Whether as an introduction to Myanmar or as an add-on to a Yangon stopover, this trip is sure to satisfy the history-loving traveler.
Discover Myanmar — a destination rich in culture with stunning scenery — by venturing off the beaten path on this 8-day tour. You'll visit dazzling pagodas, local villages, float down the Irrawaddy river, as well as catch the country's most famous sites.
Forget the typical tour bus holiday: lace up your trekking boots, grab a bike and bring a sense of adventure to discover the real beauty of Myanmar. Spend two weeks exploring the country’s main sites and hidden gems, forging a closer connection with the people and culture that make Myanmar so special.
This 8-day itinerary is designed for independent travelers who want to experience Myanmar's diversity but have limited time. You'll discover Mandalay's royal vestiges, wander amid Bagan's endless religious monuments, cruise the beautiful waters of Inle Lake and experience Yangon's intoxicating blend of old and new.
Get ready to experience the wonders of Myanmar! From encounters with colorful hill tribes to peaceful bike rides through rice paddies, this two-week trip has it all and is the perfect first trip for culturally curious travelers.

How many days should you spend in myanmar?, Myanmar - Sep 29 - Oct 13, 2018
Our three guides and three drivers in the areas of Mandalay, Pyin Oo Lwin, Bagan, Popa, Salay, Pindaya, Dalaw and Loikaw were all excellent. There was nothing we could fault them on. They gave us an insight into the lives and culture in each area we visited. They warmed to our Australian sense of humour and made our trip a lot of fun. All the various Hotels that we stayed in all staff couldn't do enough to please us. Our guides on the Pindaya Trek and Loikaw Village Trek interacted well... read more

Brief trip to myanmar from bankik, Myanmar - Aug 20 - Aug 24, 2018
Our 2 main guides Akkar and Nye Nye were amazing: professional, funny, accommodating. And they truly made our experiences so perfect. We found Myanmar magical. Loved going by e-bike through the pagodas. Akkar got us a romantic horse and carriage ride through the pagodas the first night and had recommended the restaurant Moon which was delicious. Nye nye was a total joy to be with. We particularly loved going to his village on Inle Lake, eating lunch at his family’s house and getting a tour of the village by dug our canoe with he and his Mum. Loved it all
