Description

Myanmar (Burma) is a magical, deeply spiritual country with a complex history. This tour combines the highlights of Myanmar with several days on the Ayeyarwady River aboard the legendary Road to Mandalay, an Orient Express cruise.

Begin in the capital city of Yangon (Rangoon). Stay at the two best hotels in Yangoon: The Governor’s Residence and at the famed Strand, a British colonial period hotel with teak windows, marble floors, rattan chairs and lacquer ceiling fans.

With your private guide, tour the Shwedagon Pagoda, a 300-foot tall golden Buddhist reliquary and the city’s most spectacular landmark, the sprawling Bogyoke (Scott) Market and the National Museum.

Visit neighborhoods that reflect Yangon’s Burmese, British, Indian, Bangladeshi and indigenous influences.

This “Mysteries and Luxuries of Myanmar” tour introduces Myanmar from an insider’s perspective—this itinerary includes an expert Burmese guide accompanying you throughout your tour, providing an unrivalled level of service and insight, and the opportunity to meet local families, tour villages, and visit lesser-known temples and attractions.

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 interestsPham Ha, CEO and Founder  of Luxury Travel, Ltd.

From the seductive capital Yangon (where noise-polluting scooters and horn-honking are banned) and the mist-cloaked forests of the Irrawaddy, to the beguiling Inle Lake and stupa-studded Bagan (best viewed from a hot-air balloon at dawn), to enjoy empty beach in Ngapali and not forgetting the grins and handshakes here, there and everywhere, Burma is Asia as it once was, it’s the authenticity Pham Ha, CEO of Luxury Travel 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 David Nguyen, Sales and Marketing Manager of Luxury Travel Ltd.

With Myanmar, we are experiencing one of the most exciting events in Asian tourism today. Opening Myanmar is to let travelers discover one of the most fabulous destinations on the continent and still completely un-spoilt. With its rich cultures, its amazing natural and historical heritage, its mountains or its coastline, Myanmar has all the ingredients to turn into a major world destination. Plus an unbeatable plus over some other countries: its authenticity. Brenda Sunoo, Luxury Travel Ltd USA

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
