Getting Around Myanmar

Getting around Myanmar (Burma) is relatively easy. All of our holidays will include a private driver to take you between your destinations, allowing you to sit back and enjoy the journeys. Our drivers are always accompanied by English speaking guides, who can tell you all about the local area and give tremendous insight into the culture and ways of life.

As Myanmar is such a large country we also recommend you take internal flights – most people fly in and out of Inle Lake, Ngapali Beach and Bagan but we can talk to you more about this once we’ve planned your itinerary. We normally include all the costs of your internal flights in the price of the holiday, which are ATOL protected with us.

Many of our customers also enjoy doing part of their tour by train, which we thoroughly recommend. The trains in Myanmar are rather rough around the edges and quite bouncy (not an adjective normally used for train travel!) but they go so slowly through some of the country’s most scenic areas and it’s a wonderful way to get a taste of rural, local life.
