Burma Holidays

Feel the magic of the east

Encapsulating the romance of travel, a Burma holiday still feels like the discovery of something unexplored.

Virtually closed to tourists for so long, it retains much of its exotic allure despite growing numbers of travellers embarking on a trip to Burma. Filled with artefacts of devotion, sights like the thousands of temples dotting the vast Bagan plains or the Shwedagon Pagoda shimmering with gold and jewels are awe-inspiring.

The people of Burma welcome travellers with open arms and whether sharing a strong cup of tea in a local teahouse or lunching with the nuns in a rural convent, meeting the locals will be the high point of your trip.

  • Traditional breakfast at a teahouse

    Perhaps a left-over from the British, Burma has an obsession with tea and visiting a tea house is a thoroughly local experience. Try the local noodles or mohinga, a fish soup with rice noodles that is widely considered to be Burma’s national dish, all washed down with a steaming cup of milky tea.
