This trip has been carefully designed to provide a unique experience in the destination, promote cultural understanding and exchange, flow smoothly from place to place, allow time for relaxation and exploration on your own, provide maximum value, and very importantly to be enjoyable. The itinerary can be modified to suit your tastes, timeframe, budget, and special interests- Pham Ha, CEO and Founder of Luxury Travel, Ltd.
Myanmar’s appeal to luxury travelers lies in the way it has been unaffected by modern developments. The country attracts an increasing number of high-end visitors with its colonial properties such as the Orient Express’ Governor’s Residence in Yangon and growing number of boutique hotels across the country. The deeply Buddhist “Land of the Golden Pagoda” resonates with a strong sense of place, undiluted by mass tourism and warmed by genuine hospitality. You will find atmospheric hotels and a network of well-maintained regional jets serving the main sites. On this latest Myanmar tour, you will discover the best places in Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay and Inle Lake, while you also get to rest and relax on the best beach in Myanmar on the Bay of Bengal in the Indian Ocean. Ask luxury travel advisor team for visa and keep in mind that the Burmese economy remains largely cash-based.” - Pham Ha – Founder and CEO of Luxury Travel Group Ltd.
Myanmar (Burma) offers a fascinating journey of discovery through one of South East Asia’s least visited, but most rewarding countries with its ancient temples, golden beaches and smiling faces. From the unforgettable temples in Bagan and Mandalay’s fabled history, to largely undiscovered white sand beaches at Ngapali and the placid waters of Inle Lake, Myanmar has a wealth of treasures that exceed the expectations of those who visit- Richard Parks, Luxury Travel UK .
Myanmar is like no other country in the world on the scale of interest and beauty. Local people are helpful and polite. Stephen and I fully enjoy the entire trip. I recommend Myanmar to all my friends who are planning future travels to unusual places. - Paul Tsou & Stephen Tsou
Very pleased with the organization of the tour- everything worked very well from hotels, bookings, access etc. Very pleased with our guides, only the guide and chauffeur in Mandalay seemed less than interested in the various sites and places, we visited. He did not seem particularly passionate about Mandalay and what the town had to offer visitors of different perspectives compared to other destinations in Myanmar. Special mention to Joyce at Inle lake and Min Min in Bagan for their knowledge, sense of humor and genuine interest in visitors. Very pleased with meeting different guides and people in the different locations. That gave a unique possibility to hear different views and speak with people genuinely passionate about their locations/towns and people. - Charlotte Christensen
We have returned home safely. Thank you for planning our luxury vacation to Myanmar. We were very happy with the arrangements you made. The hotels we stayed in were luxurious and we always had the best rooms. When possible, our guide made sure our rooms were the best the hotel had to offer. The vehicles were comfortable and well maintained. The drivers were very good and safe. Our daily schedule was flexible and the guides were there on time and would take us where ever we wanted to go. I would recommend Trader's hotel and Mt Popo as my two favorite. Our room at INLE lake was the best although there was a large tour there at the same time so very noisy. We enjoyed our guide Myo Aung Htet. He spoke English well and had a good sense of humor. I think he is a very good guide for Americans! Thank you for the lovely farewell dinner - What a beautiful pagoda restaurant. We will recommend you to our friends that would like to visit Myanmar. And of course if you want to visit Hawaii, please let us know. - Aloha, Paula and Tony Sussex
This was my favorite trip we have ever taken and Ha Pham's company has planned four of our trips to SE Asia for us, each with private guides and driver and staying at the all-time best hotels. We spent a couple of days in Singapore first to catch up with friends (like the Four Seasons there....breakfast is amazing and good location off of Orchard Rd and near Botanical Garden which is spectacular there. And flew Singapore Air through Frankfurt and Silk Air to Yangon. Suzanne Schaefer, New York, USA
