Popular Itineraries for Myanmar

The best duration for a first Myanmar tour is 7-9 days, allowing wide-ranging visits, from the remnants of four royal capitals in Mandalay and the tranquil glassy Inle Lake, to the wonders of the ancient ruins of Bagan and the cultural hub of the largest city Yangon. If you have a few more days to spare, consider a trekking trip from Kalaw, or a leisurely holiday at Ngapali beach; or move on to explore Thailand.

Top Travel Destinations in Myanmar

First come to the two big cities, Mandalay and Yangon, which serve as the entry points for international visitors to the country. Mandalay is the only practicable base from which to explore the sights (such as Mandalay Hill and U-Bein Bridge) in and (such as Mingun, Inwa and Sagaing) outside the city. Yangon is the former capital and has retained much of its colonial charm. Next is Bagan, the archeological zone with more than 2,000 surviving monuments, perfect for air-ballooning.
