Where to Go
There are some parts of Myanmar that are off-limits to travelers due to ongoing conflicts, or border disputes, but the regions of Myanmar that are open are beautiful, safe and absolutely intriguing.
Despite old Mandalay being bombed flat during the Second World War and hastily rebuilt without much attention paid to its looks, travelers will be excited by the bustling city’s life and abundant culinary treats.
Myanmar’s largest city, Yangon feels as though it’s off the tourist trail, offering travelers colonial charms alongside ancient Buddhist temples and many surprises down alleys and in markets.
At Inle Lake, we can enjoy magnificent landscapes, relaxed rural living, and marvel at the fishermen who trawl the lake using their legs as propellants.
Containing more than 2000 temples, Bagan is the perfect place to visit to truly experience the ancient Burmese Buddhist culture.
Up there with Angkor Wat, this temple complex is truly a marvel of the ancient world. Nearby Mount Popa is also a must-see, with the volcano-top temple being an absolutely unique tourist experience.
Ngapali Beach offers luxury travelers more than seven kilometers of beach, including utterly secluded, luxurious corners.
Myanmar is tropical and monsoonal and throughout the country, there are three distinct seasons that travelers should take note of.
The cool season, from November to February, is the optimal time to see Myanmar, and while not necessarily “cool”, travelers will enjoy more agreeable climates than other times of the year.
From March to May, during the hot season, the country is exceedingly warm throughout, with the exception of the highest hill areas.
The rainy season is intense from June until August, with heavy rain and some flooding experienced near the Bay of Bengal. September and October, while still considered the rainy season, offers travelers more respite from the downpours.
Before you Go
Visa and passport requirements
Travelers can travel for 28 days through Myanmar on a tourist e-visa, which should be applied for online.
While staying in upmarket resorts, hotels and in the cities you will find reasonable access to medical care, though in rural or wild areas it can be very limited. There is a threat of malaria rurally, and dengue in the cities, so take precautions against mosquito bites at all times.
There have been some cases of cholera, although travelers’ diarrhea is a much more likely ailment. Rabies is present in some animals and precautions should be taken against interactions with feral and wild animals.
Myanmar is a very safe country for travelers, with penalties for locals who commit crimes against tourists especially harsh. There are ongoing insurgencies in parts of the country, including civil war, but those areas are restricted to tourists.
Land mines are a danger in border areas, particularly near the Bangladeshi border, but again, those areas are restricted. The monsoon season sees flooding in low-lying and coastal areas and should be avoided when warnings advise so.
Customs and etiquette: as is consistent with other Buddhist nations, travelers should avoid touching anybody’s head, even children’s, and never point one’s feet at locals. Use of the left hand when conducting business, or in general, is considered unclean.
The Burmese people are very welcoming to foreigners, and losing one’s calm is definitely frowned upon. Discretion is key when traveling in Myanmar, so keep audacious displays of wealth and affection to a minimum and pay your local hosts with respect.
Mealtimes: Breakfast is served early, around 7 am, and traditionally will consist of rice and/or soup, although hotels will serve international breakfasts alongside local options.
Lunch is eaten around midday, and for many Burmese, this means grabbing a street food snack consisting of rice, and some kind of meat and vegetable dish.
Dinner is the most important meal in Myanmar, and consists of rice and multiple dishes of vegetables and meat, curries, stir fry and soups.
The cuisine borrows from neighboring China, India and Thailand, as well as being influenced by local minorities. Fish is frequently used in cooking, as well as fish sauce and fermented seafood.
