Cruise serenely down the Irrawaddy from Mandalay and discover 2,000 ancient temples rising from the plains of Bagan. Visit charming colonial hillstations and follow walking trails through breathtaking scenery. Relax beside the Andaman Sea. This mysterious, gentle land welcomes you with open arms.
After decades of virtual isolation, beautiful, enigmatic Burma is opening to visitors. Wherever your journey takes you in Burma you have a sense of being surrounded by rich cultures and exotic history. There’s the romance, rare today, of travelling to a fascinating land long closed off from the outside world. Now, before it gets busy is the time to visit.
Many of the place names like the Irrawaddy, Mandalay and the Andaman Sea are charged with the mystery of the East, of Kipling and the colonial explorers. To stand on the deck of your Irrawaddy river steamer as the crimson setting sun illuminates scores of thousand year old temples is one of this world’s iconic travel experiences.
November to mid March is the perfect time to travel to Burma with dry very pleasant weather. Two weeks, or longer if you’d like to linger beside the quiet white shell sand Bay of Bengal or explore remoter areas, is the ideal length of stay. Exclusive Adventures will create a completely tailormade itinerary devoted to your interests. You can spend your time in those places that attract you, in the company of expert private guides. Take the opportunity to simply wander around small towns and villages, in unspoilt areas full of history and in glorious hill country. We will arrange for you to stay in high quality “boutique” accommodation where the food and service are excellent and the settings beautiful. Travelling around Burma can be undertaken easily by air, though we will also urge you to take a delightful cruise of at least two days down the beautiful Irrawaddy.
