Get inspired to explore Myanmar
From the buzzing capital of Yangon to the tranquillity of Inle Lake, Myanmar (formerly Burma) is just begging to be explored. With heartwarming people, beautiful landscapes, and some of the most impressive ancient temples in Asia, Myanmar is simply filled with wonder and adventure. Be sure to take a look at our bite-size Myanmar trips, or browse our inspiration pages below for more specific information.
Trekking in Myanmar
Myanmar is the perfect destination for less demanding treks through the rural countryside. Visit traditional tribal villages in Shan State or trek your way to Lake Inle, using the colonial hill stations of the Burmese highlands as your base. Treks in Myanmar follow gentle paths-less-travelled, and you’ll be sure to encounter many smiling faces and waving hands along the way.
Combine Myanmar with Thailand
Myanmar is perfectly combined with neighbouring Thailand, giving you the best of both worlds. Myanmar offers a wealth of authentic cultural experiences, while Thailand has more tropical beaches and islands than you can shake a stick at. Since direct flights to Yangon (Rangoon) are rare, and most travellers to Myanmar come via Bangkok, Thailand makes for a logical addition to any itinerary.
