What travelers say about kimkim

Reviews from kimkim travelers who recently returned from their adventures

Introducing Myanmar

After a tumultuous recent past, Myanmar is now a peaceful and safe travel destination. This multi-religious country, nestled between neighboring giants India and China, and more similarly-sized Thailand and Bangladesh, is the perfect destination for those looking to experience a unique mix of local culture, architecture, and traditions. Read more

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.
