Myanmar, the country formerly known as Burma, is one of the few truly original travel experiences remaining in this much-travelled world. Come experience it on one of our Myanmar tours. Decades of social and economic isolation have preserved here many of the traditional features, physical and cultural, which have been lost in other Asian countries. Much of the country's attraction is in its history and artistic culture, as the people have preserved traditional values, and are deeply devout in their religion, with a close-knit family system and respect for elders still powerfully observed. Yangon (Rangoon), the capital is perhaps the last remaining authentic example of an Asian tropical city still true to its former colonial origins. Most famous for the unique and glittering Shwedagon Pagoda, this city features beautiful gardens and lakes as well as impressive colonial-era buildings. Early civilization in Myanmar dates back to the 5th century and reached its peak of power and creativity in the 11th - 15th century. Bagan (Pagan), is one of the richest archaeological sites in Asia, with literally thousands of pagodas, stupas and temples set in a vast plain beside the Ayeyarwaddy (Irrawaddy) River. This is the type of thing you will find on our Myanmar tours. Mandalay is the former Royal capital of Myanmar with many historical buildings and interesting sights, temples and pagodas. A true highlight of the Myanmar travel experience, vast Inle Lake is studded with floating gardens and is renowned for its unique leg-rowers and colourful local markets. Myanmar is a captivating travel destination - for its diversity of sightseeing, for the wealth of cultural and scenic attractions it can offer and, above all, for the warmth and friendliness of its charming people.
