What travelers are saying

"What an amazing first class fabulous and fantastic trip to South Africa with our wonderful friends. Andy Freeman from Audley Travel organised an excellent trip starting in Cape Town for 5 days then driving down the Garden Route stopping in Swellendam, Plettenberg Bay, Wilderness, Oudtshoorn, Franschoek and finishing with the most wonderful Safari at Rock Fig which was excellent. There wasn't one thing we could fault about the whole 17 day trip (albeit we may have changed a couple of things) but it was outstanding. Thanks so much Andy and would 110% recommend it to anyone. South Africa was simply stunning and the people were fabulous. Love The Drewerys & Griffins xx"

Myanmar (Burma) Tour Selection Trips

  • Myanmar is a burgeoning Southeast Asian destination, and with much of the country still relatively new to tourism, booking with an organized group will get you to rural villages that may be difficult, or nearly impossible, to navigate solo.
  • In a destination with so much diversity, look for a tour that includes a sampling of much that Myanmar has to offer. That includes both cities and villages, a variety of religious structures, introductions to the natural beauty of the setting, and opportunities to meet and mingle with people from various walks of life.
  • To get the most out of your Burma/Myanmar tour, spend at least two weeks. This way, you’ll be able to fully immerse in the country’s culture while visiting its many natural, historical and religious sightseeing attractions.
  • Keep in mind that, compared to Thailand and Vietnam, guided tours in Myanmar will be more expensive. However, the opportunity to visit a country that has been closed off to the world for half a decade and the experiences one can have there, make it worth considering.
  • Also remember that having just opened to international tourism, Myanmar tours may not be able to provide all the upscale luxuries another Asian destination can. If you go in with lower expectations, you’ll likely be pleasantly surprised and your worldview will most definitely be expanded.
  • If it’s your first time, look for tours that visit Myanmar’s top destinations: Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan and Inle Lake.
  • Find a tour that explores Myanmar’s strong Buddhist faith, visiting the numerous temples, pagodas and stupas in Yangon, Bagan and throughout the country.
  • Bagan is known for its hot air balloon experiences at dawn. Be sure to book in advance for the best options so you don’t miss out.
  • Taxi is the easiest way to travel in the country’s largest city, Yangon.
  • If traveling by ferry to Inle Lake, expect a long and choppy ride. Timetables and itineraries are loose guides. Prepare for an eventful journey!
  • Myanmar is a tropical destination, with temperatures that at times can rise above 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Pack layers of clothing, including something to ward off a bit of chill if you will be at higher, cooler elevations.
  • For the most enjoyable climate, choose a Myanmar guided tour from November to March, during the dry and relatively cooler period. Avoid the monsoon season from mid-May to September.
  • Many streets in Myanmar are bumpy and laced with potholes, which can result in rough rides in cars and buses. Anyone with a bad back, neck or similar impairment should consider the trip itinerary from that standpoint.
  • Electricity can be iffy, especially during the dry season when the water level, and power generation, are low. If you’ll be traveling at that time, consider taking a portable power source for computers, cell phones and cameras.
  • Be flexible and hope that your tour guides are. Some of the best memories can result from experiences that aren’t on a trip itinerary. They may include opportunities to meet interesting people, sample local food specialties and explore little-known museums with intriguing collections.
  • Look for Myanmar tours that provide opportunities to interact with Burmese locals. Their infectious hospitality, warmth and graciousness will be one of the true joys of your travels in Southeast Asia.

Additional details

Is Myanmar Safe to Visit?

The short answer is, yes, Myanmar (Burma) is a safe destination for foreign travelers. Not only that, but after nearly 50 years of invisibility from the rest of the world, Myanmar is eager to share its culture, history, cuisine and traditions with guests. 

Here’s what to keep in mind to stay safe during your tour to Myanmar: 

  • Stay with your tour and and heed the instructions and guidelines of your Burmese tour guide. This includes off-the-beaten-path areas of the country, where locals and authorities may not be used to seeing foreign travelers. 
  • Check with your Myanmar tour operator about which areas of the country you’ll be visiting and which are off-limits for various political or safety reasons, including landmines in restricted areas.  
  • If you’re on a hiking tour of Myanmar, be prepared for mosquitos with lots of repellent and mosquito nets. In addition, watch out for snacks in the brush and forest - there is a high incidence of fatal snake bites in Myanmar. 
  • In caves and near Mt. Popa, do not feed the monkeys you see. As cute as they may be, bites are possible. 
  • Use caution when walking with your tour in a crowded area, especially when crossing the street. Most local drivers are fairly lax about following traffic rules.
  • To avoid confrontation with authorities and so as not to offend the Burmese people, do not ever disrespect Buddha. Visitors have been thrown in jail for posting offensive or inappropriate images of Buddha on social media. Be respectful of local religious practices and sensitivities.

When is Monsoon Season in Myanmar?

If you’d like to avoid the monsoon season in Myanmar, travel between November and March. The summer monsoon months are responsible for about 80 percent of the region’s rainfall - and while vitally important to the people and crops of the area, can be less than pleasant for tourists.

Located in a monsoon climate, Myanmar has three seasons - the hot period, the monsoon itself and then the cool, dry winter (when it’s most optimal to visit). 

If you do travel to Burma during the monsoon season, your experience will depend on where in the country you travel. The most rain will fall on the coastal zones and beaches. If the Myanmar monsoon season doesn’t put you off, just be flexible, bring appropriate rain gear and waterproof footwear and be prepared for a lot of rain, though not necessarily every day and not all day.

What Language Is Spoken in Myanmar? 

The official language of Burma (Myanmar) is Burmese, although there are about 100 hundred languages spoken throughout the country. Six language families exist in Myanmar, including Sino-Tibetan, Austro-Asiatic, Tai-Kadai, Indo-European, Austronesian and Hmong-Mien.

What Other Countries Should I Visit When I Go to Myanmar?

While Myanmar itself can make an incredible and insightful tour opportunity, if you have the time and the means, consider an extended Southeast Asia vacation. Look for group tours that combine Myanmar with neighboring India, the southern region of China, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand.
