Still mysterious and enchanting, Myanmar remains in a state of preservation due in part to its relative isolation and detachment from the wider world. As a result of this, you can enjoy the simple life of its people, one which evolves around the mighty Yangon river and the integration of their belief in ghost spirits and the more widely accepted Buddhist religion. Do as the locals do and traverse river sections by kayak, visiting river people atop their stilt houses and at floating markets. Visit the capital in Yangon and its striking golden pagodas and enjoy a little luxury of your own at the Savoy Hotel and the Sanctum Inle Resort.
Make the most of local food markets and eateries and Myanmar's plentiful freshwater fish, alongside pork and poultry in more land-locked areas. Throughout your journey there will be ample opportunity to try authentic 'Burmese' cuisine and going on a famous folk rhyme: pork, mango and green tea leaves are the pick of local produce. Floating markets allow for the procurement of fresh fruit and popular snack foods.
A perfect getaway for Dragon Boat festival, with all bookings before May 15th receiving free Beijing airport transfer.
