Burma holidays under £2000

Of all of the hotspots and must-see destinations in the world, few have got the travelling community as excited or as intrigued as Burma (Myanmar).

Ruled by a military junta for almost 50 years, this mysterious Asian country, once an important trading outpost of the British, became almost completely cut off from the rest of the world.

However in 2011 the junta was officially dissolved, leaving Burma free to re-join the international community and take its rightful place as one of the best holiday destinations in the world.

Our very first Burma holiday, one of the only available in the UK at the time of launch, our 16-day Burma Highlights continues to sell out, with us regularly having to add extra departures. If you are short on time try the 11-day Essential Burma tour; the great news is that some departures are less than £2000 including flights. If you prefer to put your own itinerary together, we can also organise tailor-made holidays for you, keeping to your budget.

Why now?

If the unique culture, friendly population, stunning scenery and air of mystery aren’t enough to tempt you to Myanmar, nothing can.

The isolation that Burma experienced for most of the latter half of the twentieth century prevented much of the rapid development experienced by other neighbouring nations.

The natural world

A great example of this preservation can be found hiding in the jungles. Here whole herds of elephant – almost eradicated from other regions – live happily and undisturbed.

The recent BBC documentary Wild Burma: Nature’s Lost Kingdom showed just how elusive, yet majestic these creatures are. The programme also gave viewers a tantalising look at the countryside and the people who inhabit this unique landscape.




If it’s culture that you’re after, it won’t leave you disappointed. In fact, the country has a huge amount of both history and heritage. One of the most important cultural centres is the ancient city of Bagan, around 170 kilometres south west of Mandalay.


The two main cities are Rangoon and Mandalay, both of which offer visitors a whole host of sightseeing opportunities and cultural delights. As the largest city, Rangoon is unsurprisingly busier than Mandalay, but it still manages to retain a certain old world charm.

Full of charm, character and surprises, Burma is a truly unique country that’s just waiting to be discovered. And with so many travellers chomping at the bit to explore this emerging nation, now’s the time to get in there first and experience it before it changes.

Explore is an excellent tour company and Burma looks an interesting destination. One thing to factor in of course is the extra £300 if you're a singleton and do not wish to share a room!
