Myanmar Tour, Vacations, Travel Packages & Experiences


  • Fishermen on Inle Lake - a great photo opportunity while on your Myanmar tour.
  • The ancient city of Bagan with over 2200 temples and pagodas
  • Shwedagon the most sacred Buddhist pagoda for the Burmese
  • Monks gathering food early in the morning
  • Smiles of a young Burmese boy

Myanmar, formerly Burma, is now more politically relaxed. The charms of both the country and the people are enormous. Myanmar is one destination where the local inhabitants make a difference. Not only are they friendly and charming but also considerate and engaging. Just observe the smiles. The country itself is immersed in the Buddhist religion which permeates everyday life, to be experienced on a Myanmar tour.

The largest city, Yangon can be either viewed as a decaying city or can be a glimpse into a bygone era when colonial rule influenced everything. Everywhere, you will see wandering monks dressed in burgundy robes. The most outstanding landmark is the Shwedagon Pagoda. A pagoda is not an apt description; it is more a small city containing many pavillions and shrines, most decked in gold leaf. It sits on top of a hill and its jungle of spires can be seen everywhere.

Another famous site is the Sule Pagoda located in the busiest part of Yangon. Once totally forbidden to even catch a glimpse of but now available to view from outside is the home of Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar’s Nobel Peace Prize winner.

Myanmar’s second largest city and former capital, Mandalay contains half of the country’s monks. The city is dominated by Mandalay Hill. One is rewarded by a visit on a Myanmar vacation not only by the view but also by all the interesting pagodas and temples. The Royal Palace is worth a visit with its ancient city wall.

Bagan has to be seen to be believed with the world’s largest and densest concentration of Buddhist temples, pagodas and temples some dating back to the 11th Century. Everywhere you look is a spire-fringed skyline.

Inle Lake offers the opportunity to view country life. Take a boat ride on the lake and observe fishing villages and local lifestyles. There are also a large number of rare species of water birds here.

For beach lovers on a Myanmar tour, consider a side trip to the unspoiled resort of Ngapali.

If you want to experience the colonial city of Yangon, the temples of Bagan and Mandalay and the beauty of Inle Lake, one of Goway's Myanmar tours is a great place to get started.
