Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, is Southeast Asia’s up-and-coming travel destination. Visitors will discover a country whose traditional values have survived a challenging past. Once isolated, Myanmar has undergone rapid change in recent years resulting in economic and social reforms, cultural openness, and an influx of visitors from around the world. Today the country welcomes travelers with open arms to some of Southeast Asia’s greatest natural, cultural, and historical treasures.
Myanmar’s traditional cities and spectacular landscapes are punctuated by myriad Golden Wonders—from Buddhist relics and towering pagodas to mighty hidden temples. Nothing tops a journey to Shwedagon Pagoda, the most prominent of the 2,200 pagodas and temples located outside the ancient city of Bagan. Travelers on our guided tour can take part in a sunset lamp lighting ceremony beneath Shwegadon’s 11th century golden stupa— an unforgettable highlight of your journey through Myanmar.
Our guided tours take you to the heart of Myanmar with immersive cultural encounters you won’t find elsewhere. Whether it's meeting teachers and students at a monastic school, sampling traditional ‘Mohinga,’ the national dish made of savory fish broth and noodles, or shopping for traditional Burmese goods at a local market—you’ll connect with Myanmar’s people and culture every step of your journey.
