As far as magical countries go, Burma must be one of the most special that we’ve ever experienced here at Destinology. A land of golden, shimmering pagodas. This is an unspoilt world, isolated for many years, but now welcoming to all comers. Prepare to encounter some of the friendliest (and funniest) people you’ll ever meet, and a sense of wondrous storytelling and wisdom.
The mighty Ayeyarwady River carves a wide swathe of culture, history and life through the centre of this country, and our partnership with Belmond allows you to experience every wonderful element of both land and water here. We are proud to showcase Belmond’s amazing river cruises, a number of which we have personally experienced, and would hugely recommend them here.
Burma offers everything; luxury, untouched beaches in the South, cultural melting-pot cities, and hushed, calm green paradises, all waiting to be discovered.
Most magical of all however are the temples of Bagan; a universe of ancient red stones and towers and stupas unfolding across a wide plain before your widened eyes. It really will take your breath away.
Don’t wait a second longer; the time is most definitely now to discover this luxurious, marvellous and captivating land, and her people, cultures, sights and sounds.
