A vast landscape of Monasteries, majestic pagodas and natural wonders, a world away from the everyday. Discover the exotic, enthralling country of Myanmar (Burma) & Bhutan in style with local guides, private tours, the best hotels, and a completely personalized itinerary. After years of being cut off from international tourism, Myanmar – formerly Burma – has re-established itself as a destination like no other. In 1890, Rudyard Kipling declared the country to be ‘unlike any place you know about’, and today’s visitors still experience this same sense of wonder.
Evocative of the ancient Orient, Myanmar will captivate you with its untouched beauty and spirituality: experience the sublime scenery of Bagan, a terrain strewn with thousands of ancient temples; visit the caves of rural Pindaya to discover pilgrims meditating by thousands of gilded Buddha effigies; witness the famous leg-rowing technique of Inle Lake’s fishermen; and then unwind along the beautiful Bay of Bengal, where long, tranquil stretches of white sandy beaches and azure waters await.
Bhutan is known as the “Last Shangri-La”: A small mountainous paradise steeped in tradition. Long isolated from the world, tourism in Bhutan has been allowed for less than 40 years; however, the country has embraced development with sensitivity towards preserving its pristine environment and unique culture. Set in peaceful seclusion amidst the mighty Himalayas, this kingdom’s dramatic scenery—from snow-capped peaks to its verdant rice paddies and crystalline streams—leave those lucky enough to visit in awe.
