Myanmar is the perfect destination for adventurous travellers

Perfect for adventurous travellers wanting to explore somewhere new and exciting

A country only recently opened to tourists, but one deeply integrated into Britain's past, Myanmar is an intrepid travellers delight.  

Sip cocktails overlooking the Yangon River in the Stand Hotel, where British officers used to cheer with the likes of Rudyard Kipling and Orson Welles. 

Visit the Shwedagon Pagoda, gracefully watching the city from its hilltop; it's the most sacred temple in Myanmar, and people travel across the country to make merit at the golden stupa. 

Head north to Mandalay, Inle Lake and the temple ruins of Bagan. Fly or take a train to Mandalay, and if you have the time, the traditional way to travel to Bagan is along the Ayarwaddy River by ship. 

Float along the river and watch daily river life from a comfortable vantage point on deck. Witness the full expanse of Bagan from above with panoramic views from a hot-air balloon, or explore a few of the thousand temples by horse and cart. 

Explore the lesser-known Karen state and visit the Golden Rock, perched on the edge of an 1100-metre-high cliff. If you are feeling lucky, your local guide will help you place some gold leaf onto the rock itself, and if the rock doesn’t fall, you are bound for good luck and health. 

No trip to southeast Asia is complete without a trip to the beach, and Myanmar’s Ngapali beach offers a pristine, and often deserted, beach with azul water and colourful sunsets.

Read what our customers say about their trip with Wayfairer

“This is the second time Wayfairer has planned a trip, the first being a Safari and we will definitely have them plan another trip. Our journey to Antarctica exceeded our expectations".

"This was a dream trip I had thought about for years and somehow they managed to exceed what I had hoped for. Could not have asked for more."

"An outstanding experience with Wayfairer, Cat and Juan helped to organise, and manage, an amazing safari for a group of six. Their meticulous planning, endless enthusiasm and huge knowledge of the area meant that we had a truly unforgettable experience, we even had a fabulous birthday party in the middle of the Mara. The highest recommendation is that we plan to use Wayfairer again and again!"

"This was my second trip with Wayfairer - my first (to Africa) was so amazing, I was worried that I would be disappointed.....not a chance. Once again, the itinerary, the guides, the little touches, were superb. I am already thinking about what trip I will have Wayfairer plan next! For anyone trying to decide where to go - Peru was absolutely amazing! It may be one of the most under-rated countries. Machu Pichu was breathtaking, but there was also so much more to see and do....let Wayfairer take you on amazing journey!"

"Our trip was a dream come true. The arrangements made by Wayfairer exceeded our expectations. The accommodations were as good or better than the descriptions in our trip documents.
