Myanmar (formerly Burma) sits at the crossroads of Asia’s great civilizations of India and China. It is one of Southeast Asia’s largest and most diverse countries. To this day Myanmar remains one of the most mysterious and undiscovered destinations in the world. A land of breathtaking beauty and charm, Myanmar offers the traditional delights of Asia in one fascinating country. Virgin jungles, snow-capped mountains and pristine beaches, combined with a rich and glorious heritage spanning more than two thousand years. Spectacular monuments and ancient cities attest to a vibrant culture still home to 135 different ethnic groups. Whether it be cruising down the mighty Ayeyarwaddy River in style, drifting over the ancient city of Bagan by hot air balloon, or searching for that elusive tiger on the back of an elephant, there is always a feeling of adventure, from mountain trekking and rafting in the far north to world class diving in the Mergui Archipelago. Above all, Myanmar offers the warmest welcome in Asia.
