Tailor Made Adventure Holidays and Group Tours in Burma (Myanmar)
Probably the best kept secret in South East Asia, Burma is a stunning country with a huge amount to offer. We offer a selection of small group tours and private tailor made holidays that encompass its diverse attractions and allow you to get a real feel for the country. The stunning temples at Bagan, spread out over an enormous dusty plain, are one of Asia’s premier historical sites, with superb opportunities to explore remote stupas and watch a glorious sunset over the temple roofs. Yangon's colonial architecture takes you back to the days of British rule, sitting alongside ancient Buddhist monuments that continue to be used today. Explore old monasteries and visit local villages on Inle Lake, and delve into the country’s past at the royal city of Mandalay. We also get away from the now well trodden tourist path, visiting areas that have rarely, if ever, come across western tourists including travelling overland from Thailand over land borders only recently opened to tourists. Burma offers an adventure that is very difficult to find in other South East Asian countries.
Burma – Beyond the Tourist Trail
From chaotic and charming Yangon, where we take a spiritual Shwedagon tour, to the Shan villages, local schools, and the grave of the first prince of Hsipaw, this is a group tour that really goes beyond the tourist trail. You have the chance to go trekking to the hill tribe villages in Kyaukme and take a spectacular train crossing over the mighty Gokteik Viaduct, add in a cycle tour in Mandalay and visit a project for retired elephants around Kalaw, and you can see why this group tour is so different.

Burma - Journey through the Golden Land
For the first time in centuries it is possible to cross the border between Burma and Thailand overland. Be one of the first to travel this unique route crossing the Htee Khee border to Dawei which connects the more remote areas of Mon State and Kayin State. We continue to Bagan via the new capital Nay Pyi Daw, before being treated to the fertile lands of the Shan mountains. The final highlight of the trip is to discover an off the beaten track and only recently accessible part of Eastern Shan state where we can interact with many different local tribes. This is an unforgettable overland journey through an exciting and mostly unexplored part of Burma.
