HONEYMOON TO MYANMAR
FROM £2452.00 per person, incl flights
For many years, Myanmar has long borne the brunt of a brutal regime that kept it strictly out-of-bounds to most visitors. But in the last decade, the country has seen significant advancement and, as a result, has become a popular tourist destination. Ironically, the nation’s former oppression has largely contributed to its current-day charm, as its isolation prevented the rampant development and commercialism that has affected many of its Southeast Asian counterparts.

To the north of Yangon, the ancient city of Bagan lays quietly amongst forest filled plains, a magical panorama of over two thousand pagodas that stud the landscape. Comparable in historical importance to Angkor Wat, the vast kingdom is best surveyed by hot air balloons sailing serenely over the temple-tops, whilst bicycles and horse drawn carriages weave below. Just an hour away, the forests and monkey-laden parkland surround the feet of Mount Popa, an ancient monastery perched on top of a dormant volcano, whose panoramic views are well worth the 777 step climb to the top.
The last Royal capital of Myanmar is Mandalay, a city brimming with culture, authentic Burmese life and bursting with a cacophony of festival celebrations throughout the summer months. The city is also home to ancient temples and pagodas and gold leaf forges that produce wafer thin sheets of pure gold by hand. The worlds longest wooden bridge, U Bein, was once covered in this glittering façade. To the south of the city lies the incredible freshwater Inle Lake, peppered with longboats and home to a village community of fishermen and their families. Despite making their homes on the water, floating fruit and vegetable crops are farmed amongst the village, suspended on wooden stilts that are knitted together with a blanket of lotus flowers.
After moments in Myanmar it’s evident that this beautiful country provides a window to a forgotten way of life that celebrates the simplicity of daily duties. The paved roads of the cities quickly turn to gravel and grass, electricity makes way for manual labour and a sense of oneness with nature descends in the lush, bird filled jungles and golden sand beaches that stretch away like swathes of buttercup silk.
