Myanmar

This is Burma, and it will be quite unlike any land you know about.” Rudyard Kipling wrote those words more than a century ago, and they are as true as ever today. Journeying to modern-day Myanmar (formerly Burma) is an opportunity not only to see and experience one of the world’s last unspoiled, exotic paradises, but to witness its movement towards modernity as it slowly emerges from decades of military dictatorship. Its spectacular payas (pagodas), temples, and monasteries are elegant and moving reminders of an earlier age, and its vibrant people and cultures are still deeply rooted in centuries-old traditions—while the hustle and bustle of its largest city, Yangon, shows the nation’s eagerness to join the world’s economic and political mainstream. On an adventure to this rich and rare land, you’ll discover amazing treasures including the gilded Shwedagon Paya, the towering reclining Buddha statue of Chaukhtatgyi Paya, and the extraordinary 800-year-old temples at Bagan on the plains of the Irrawaddy River. Most of all, you’ll have the chance to drink tea and share time with locals, and make personal connections in this enchanting country.

MTS offers three adventures in Myanmar, including a private trip and a new 7-day Adventure Week that heads to remote mountains of western Myanmar. The lush mountains and misty peaks of this region are still largely undiscovered by tourism, and our tip is to get there before the world catches up.
