Myanmar

To say that Myanmar (Burma) is undergoing rapid change would be quite an understatement. A land of fascinating history, gracious people and some of the foremost ancient architecture in Southeast Asia, it was nevertheless shunned by the international community for decades due to its repressive military rule. That began to change in 2011, when a transition towards civilian-led government and parliamentary elections ushered in a period of continuing reform and restored diplomatic relations with the U.S., Europe and other global powers. There is still a ways to go, but the developments in Burma are one of the most exciting stories to unfold in Asia in a long time. And with its vast natural resources and proximity to nearly 2.5 billion neighbors in China and India, Burma is poised to play a major role in 21st-century Asia.

Today, the land that seduced scribes like Rudyard Kipling, George Orwell and Somerset Maugham is as beguiling as ever. The near future will almost certainly see unprecedented numbers of pilgrims heading to traditional must-sees like Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay, and Inle Lake, as well as more off-the-beaten-path destinations like the medieval ruins of Mrauk-U, the natural splendor of Putao and the varied tribal people of Kengtung, all favorites of ours. 

With such skyrocketing popularity, however, has come a strain on Myanmar’s tourism infrastructure, of which visitors must be mindful. Remote Lands has created custom trips in Burma since our inception, and our depth and breadth of knowledge gives us a superior position to navigate the country’s continuing change.
