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.

Traveler: Ros W. - Local specialist: Anne Cruickshanks

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.

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 and we had a wonderful time. Anne Cruickshanks who tailored our trip to suite our interests was nothing but professional in her communication skills and there was nothing we would have changed. We felt we could relax and enjoy ourselves and re charge on our annual holiday and felt safe wherever we went.
We were pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of the Myanmar people.
Happy Travellers

Traveler: Cynthia C. - Local specialist: Anne Cruickshanks

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
