Luxury Travel Ltd is promoting “Discover the Charm of Myanmar in luxury and style in just 12 days” which allows you to discover the depth of Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay, Inle Lake and on the Ayeyarwady River all the way to Bagan, disembarking at temples and viewing life along the river.

“Myanmar’s appeal to luxury travelers lies in the way it has been unaffected by modern developments. The country attracts an increasing number of high-end visitors with its colonial properties such as the Orient Express’ Governor’s Residence in Yangon and growing number of boutique hotels across the country. The deeply Buddhist “Land of the Golden Pagodas” resonates with a strong sense of place, undiluted by mass tourism and warmed by genuine hospitality. You will find atmospheric hotels and a network of well-maintained regional jets serving the main sites. Ask luxury travel advisor team for visa and keep in mind that the Burmese economy remains largely cash-based,” said Pham Ha, Founder and CEO of Luxury Travel Ltd (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com). This is a land where holy men clad in traditional longyi are revered, thousands of ancient, religious stupas rise out of flat plains and floating-village life ebbs and flows upon Inle Lake. For a glimpse of old Indochina, there isn’t a more eye-opening destination than this mysterious country, which only began allowing Western travelers across its borders in recent years.

Yangon, the country’s capital, is an intriguing mix of British, Burmese, Chinese and Indian influences, which is evident through its colonial architecture to its unique cuisine. In this deeply Buddhist country, pagodas are scattered across the land, and some of the most impressive ones can be found in Yangon, including the Shwedagon Pagoda and the Sule Pagoda.

In Mandalay, Myanmar’s major commercial center, you can explore sites such as the monastery-studded Mandalay Hill, a pilgrimage site for Buddhists for nearly two centuries. Perhaps the best way to experience both the romance of the colonial era and see the Burmese people’s day-to-day realities is by cruising on the Ayeyarwady River all the way to Bagan, disembarking at temples and viewing life along the river.

If Yangon and Mandalay are Myanmar’s capitals of culture and commerce, then Bagan is the country’s spiritual center. Over 2,000 pagodas, stupas and temples dot the golden plains of Bagan. This is a once in a lifetime sight to behold, and is best seen from above in a private hot air balloon, which can be arranged by Luxury Myanmar Travel. Other highlights include the Ananda Temple (the best preserved in the city) and Mount Popa, a stunning volcano that serves as an ancient Buddhist pilgrimage site.

“Our luxury Myanmar tour introduces Myanmar from an insider's perspective. This itinerary includes an expert Burmese guide accompanying you throughout your tour, providing an unrivalled level of service and insight, and the opportunity to meet local families, tour villages, and visit lesser-known temples and attractions while you discover the charm of this mystic land in style,” Ha added.
