Explore undiscovered Myanmar with Experience Travel Group's brand new itineraries

Myanmar (Burma)
Since Myanmar (Burma) opened for tourism in 2011, bespoke travel experts Experience Travel Group have been at the forefront of finding out more about this fascinating country and how best to explore it.  After sending their five country experts on a number of reconnaissance missions to get under Myanmar’s skin over the past five years, they are excited to launch a new programme of holidays, created to suit the most intrepid and curious of travellers.  

Despite bordering Southeast Asian travel hotspots Thailand, Laos, Thailand and China, the largely Buddhist nation of Myanmar has remained relatively untouched by mass tourism due to its political situation. It now warmly welcomes visitors who wish to explore its remarkable landscape and fascinating culture: from combining a holiday there with tried, tested and truly-loved Thailand, to getting completely off the beaten track in the north of the country, Experience Travel Group’s new holidays perfectly showcase a country to cherish and visit again. 

The following three tours demonstrate just some of the unforgettable experiences these new holidays offer.
Myanmar Highlights and Beyond

Eschewing domestic flights in favour of boats and trains, this well-paced three-week itinerary ensures visitors experience the must-see sights of Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay and Lake Inle in a different way way and discover less-known spots like Loikaw, Kalaw and the remote villages along the Irrawaddy River.  Highlights include seeing 100 Buddhist stupas rising out of the lake at Sankar during the boat transfer to Lake Inle, climbing to the top of Popa Taung Kalut for superb views towards Bagan and the extinct volcano of Mount Pop and rattling through the Shan Hills on a local train journey from Lake Inle to Kalaw. In Bagan, there is also the option to partake in a cookery class at a ‘rough around the edges’ but completely charming school, which Experience Travel Group is proud to be working with as the only UK tour operator.

From £4,750 per person, including all accommodation, experiences, a number of meals, entrance fees, guides, transport, flights, 24-hour in-country back up and access to a dedicated travel expert in the UK.

Highlights include taking a train over the Goteik Viaduct, spotting a vast variety of rare birds at the Moeyungyi Wetlands and Myanmar’s largest lake and nature reserve, Indawgyi Lake,  and a number of tranquil boat trips to take in unexplored lakes, rivers and villages.
