Myanmar (Burma)

An enigma uncovered

Where to go in Myanmar (Burma)


A large country with geographically and culturally distinct regions, Burma offers much and more for the curious traveller. Be sure to leave time for your Myanmar holiday – the real treat when travelling here is to take it all in slowly.

Start on a trip through colonial Yangon (Rangoon) where faded architecture frames the magnificent golden domes of the Shwedagon Pagoda, constructed 2,500 years ago as a monument to house eight of the Buddha's hairs. Then, travel north to royal Mandalay’s moated, east-facing royal palace, where a tiered golden spire seems to pierce the sky while the imposing fortress surrounding it projects power and protection far and wide. Then, look to the floating markets and gardens of Inle Lake and Bagan’s grandiose ruins of empires past that stretch for as far as the eye can see.

In Myanmar, you’ll find lofty mountains and mile upon mile of emerald rice paddies, empty beaches and dense forests. But most of all, you'll find yourself touring one of the world's most welcoming nations, as you discover why this beautiful country is perhaps Asia’s finest treasure.


List of regions

Inle Lake, Burma

Central Burma

Central Burma is home to some of the country's most important historical and cultural treasures. From the ancient temples at Bagan to the calm waters of Inle Lake and on to the cultural hub of Mandalay.

Northern Burma

Kachin State, Burma's northernmost state, is a region that has remained largely untouched due to the powerful geographical barrier of the Himalayas to the north.

Karaweik Palace, Yangon

Yangon (Rangoon)

The former capital Rangoon – now known as Yangon – is the largest and most important commercial centre in Burma. Filled with buildings from the colonial era, the city serves as an evocative reminder of Britain's former power and current legacy.

Coastal Burma

Coastal Burma (Myanmar) is blessed with mile upon mile of footprint-free sand and more than 800 islands virtually untouched by tourists, making Burma's beaches the home of some of the most relaxing holidays you'll find.

Eastern Burma

Remote and seldom visited, eastern Burma shows visitors a rare and real sense of this complex country. Shan State in particular, the largest state in Burma, is especially colourful and vibrant.
