  • Burma - Asia's beautiful secret

    Our local leaders will show you the Burma they know and love. Rangoon’s golden Shwedagon Pagoda that so captivated Rudyard Kipling on his journey here. The bustling U Bien teak bridge at sunset. The curious Britishness of the gardens and architecture at the old colonial hill station of Maymyo. The silver sands of Ngwesaung Beach, perhaps the most overlooked beach resort in South East Asia. The truly amazing indigenous leg-rowers on Inle Lake.

    Even the way you travel in Burma is unexpected. For example, the only way to move around the communities and backwaters of Inle Lake is in a kind of four-person dugout canoe (no luxury tourist cruise boats here!). It’s comfortable of course, thanks to some well-placed deckchairs, and a lot of fun. It picks you up from your hotel, takes you shopping at the floating markets and even drops you off for lunch.

    Burma is something of a favourite destination in the Peregrine offices. And right now, this country is at an amazing point in its long and complex history. For the adventurous and open-minded traveller, the present time is also an amazing opportunity. Come with us to Burma.
