Only recently opening up to the world and mercifully untrampled by mass tourism, Myanmar has a sincerity that makes it transcendent. In this country of soft slopes and imposing monuments, intricate Buddhist monasteries are still the center of gentle village life. Absorb the unperturbed harmony of Myanmar as you enjoy a stretch of powdery sand to yourself on the idyllic Bay of Bengal or take a charming old steamship down the still waters of the Irrawaddy River. Backyard Travel’s private Myanmar tours include adventures as diverse as beach retreats, adventurous trekking, and eco-lodge expeditions — complete with wine tastings in caves and guided tours of the country’s archeological treasures. Wherever your adventurous spirit calls you, our Myanmar travel agency team is waiting to craft a bespoke Myanmar holiday just for you.

What's Special about Myanmar?

Myanmar is as complex as it is enchanting — a country of historical treasures, natural attractions, and colorful customs that is just beginning to open itself to the world. Rugged and real, this country rewards intrepid travelers ready to delve into the intricacies of Myanmar’s long history and rich culture.



CHARACTER

Dignified and direct, the Burmese are quick to make personal connections, welcoming strangers into their home as “brothers and sisters.” For emphasis, cheerful Burmese are known for giggling as they speak, but they also take their traditional customs seriously.



CLIMATE

Myanmar’s climate is marked by the monsoon cycles. The months between May and September see heavy rains in most areas. Without the respite of showers, temperatures from March to May can be sweltering but drop considerably in winter.



ENTERTAINMENT

Bars and nightlife options are flourishing in emerging tourist centers like Yangon. To soak up some local Burmese culture and art, the National Theater in Yangon also puts on impressive music and dance shows by local performers.



CULTURE

Myanmar preserves a diversity of indigenous cultures, many with customs and beliefs that predate the introduction of Buddhism. The majority culture is ethnically Bamar and strongly influenced by Theravada Buddhism. You’ll especially note this on tours to temples and pagodas.



LANGUAGE

Burmese is the national language of Myanmar and the mother tongue of the Bamar ethnicity. Minority languages, however, including Karen, Kachin, and Mon, are widely spoken. A colonial legacy, English is also spoken.



HISTORY

Myanmar was an ancient empire that rivaled the Khmer before being colonized by England in the 1800s. Regaining its independence after WWII, modern Myanmar is in the process of opening up to the world after a tumultuous 20th century.
