Guests are advised that accommodations in remote areas can be very basic and simple.

SITES TO BE SEEN

MAJOR sightseeing highlights of Myanmar include a huge variety of religious and historic monuments; a rich cultural and artistic heritage, museums and beautiful scenery. Such key elements are naturally included in our itineraries, but we also take the trouble in seeking out the less obvious attractions – interesting local markets, festivals, whenever these coincide with travel plan, traditional handicrafts and industries, plus the opportunity to meet local people in their own environments. Also included are opportunities to try regional cuisine and to see typical or traditional forms of entertainment. We include such extra dimensions to make any visit to Myanmar a richer, more rewarding and more memorable experience.
