Myanmar, the country formerly known as Burma, is one of the few truly original travel experiences remaining in this much-travelled world. Recognized by the world as the Golden Land, it is one of the earliest homes of mankind, where one can enjoy exclusive experiences of a life-time.

Decades of social and economic isolation have preserved many of the traditional features, physical and cultural, which have been lost in other Asian countries. Myanmar is a captivating travel destination - for its diversity of sightseeing, for the wealth of cultural and scenic attractions it can offer and, above all, for the warmth and friendliness of its charming people.

Early civilization in Myanmar dates back to the 5th century and reached its peak of power and creativity in the 11th - 15th century. The country is blessed by nature with great geophysical diversity, with scenery varying from the vast central agricultural plains, to snow-capped mountains in the far north. The Shan States feature cool and verdant hills, while the long coastline offers endless golden beaches still to be opened up for tourism.

Much of the country's attraction is in its history and artistic culture. Myanmar lies at the meeting point of two of the world's great civilizations, China and India, but it blends both of these influences with its own very special local characteristics. The people have preserved traditional values, and are deeply devout in their religion, with a close-knit family system and respect for elders still powerfully observed. Myanmar people are fun-loving and festivals form the centre of Myanmar social life, with each month having its own festive occasion. Myanmar people are also known for their sense of hospitality and friendliness to visitors.
