    • Tripadvisor

With our roots in country, our travel specialists can specially modify your trip to include any of the below activities. If not, choose from one of our Burma tours, which combine a number of these exciting options.

Meander the plains of Bagan by Bicycle or Horse Cart

One of our favorite things to do in Myanmar, and guaranteed to be a wonderful time for all, is a magnificent Bagan tour by horse cart or bicycle. To get a wonderful sense of this country, meander through the quiet sandy paths and see the local villages, stupas, grand Buddhist temples, and the occasional oxen toiling the fields. 

Stroll along U Bein Bridge, Mandalay  

Just outside the former Royal Capital of Mandalay is Amarapura, home to the wooden U Bein Bridge, which is the world’s longest teak structure, measuring more than 1200 meters. U Bein is best visited in the late afternoon, when the locals can be seen returning to their villages.  

Visit a Burmese Market

Markets are often the best places to get in touch with the local life and those of Myanmar are some of the most vibrant and enchanting in Asia. Our favorites include Inle Lake’s lively morning market, where the community of the lake, including the local hill tribes, comes to trade with each other, building a bustling cultural hive of activity and color. Also visit the eclectic Bogyoke Market in Yangon. Also known as Scott’s Market, it dates back to 1926 and is named after James George Scott, credited for his role in government and for introducing football to Myanmar (now reaching fever pitch in the country). 

See Shwedagon Pagoda, Yangon

A sight to behold and the most revered Buddhist temple in Myanmar, Shwedagon Pagoda is believed to date back 2500 years. The 8-sided central stupa is 90 meters tall, gilded with gold leaf, surrounded by 64 smaller stupas. The vast and stunning views of the golden stupa and the Yangon skyline are best enjoyed at sunset when the sun illuminates Shwedagon, giving it a magical quality that will leave an everlasting impression. 

Sail the Myeik Archipelago

Board a specially designed sailboat for a cruise through the splendid scenery of the remote and untouched Myeik archipelago. Discover deserted islands with white, sandy beaches, hidden lagoons and a curious monkey population. Trek, swim, snorkel, and kayak your way around, observing a wealth of land and marine life along the way.

Journey to Remote Putao, Kachin State

At the far northern tip of Myanmar, Putao rests at the lush foothills of the Himalayan mountain range at an altitude of 400 meters. Whether trekking, visiting the hill tribe villages, or walking through the vibrant local markets, this largely undiscovered region boasts varied accommodations from a stunning luxury lodge to charming family homestays.  

Cruise the Irrawaddy River

Cruise from Bagan to Mandalay along the Irrawaddy River, the lifeblood of Myanmar, aboard a luxury replica paddleboat. During a wonderful multi-day trip, soak up the exotic scenery as the boat floats its way past riverside villages and magnificent landscapes.
