Holidays To Myanmar

Long thought of as a mysterious country, Myanmar (also called Burma) is slowly revealing itself to new eyes.

Located 1370 km north of Bangkok, this is where Noble Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi grew up. Called the “Golden Land” due to the hundreds of golden temples mixed in with thick vegetation, there’s a wild, untapped feel to the place, giving it an adventurous allure all its own. Ready? So are we. Dive in with one of our Myanmar packages.

Things to Do in Myanmar

Gold, gold, gold! That’s what you’ll be thinking when you visit what’s thought of as one of the biggest draws to the capital city of Yangon: Shwedagon Pagoda. This giant gold Buddhist temple is unlike anything you’ve seen, with its bell shape and hefty girth. As you walk around the area you’ll notice something: the quiet. Motorbikes have been banned in this main part of town for years, so it’s maintained a friendly, pedestrian atmosphere.

For most travellers, Bagan is the highlight of their Myanmar holiday. This area is home to over 2000 temples. With the green trees and mist, there’s something both mystical and spooky about them, and who doesn’t love some goosebumps when on holiday? Since Bagan is a little further out of Yangon than your feet will want to take you, take a look at one of Wotif’s Myanmar car hire options for a quick trip.

You had the chills, so let’s move on to thrills. Make time to visit Mandalay—this town has a busier feel than Yangon and also has popular sites for travellers. This includes the U Bein Bridge, which has become a common image of Myanmar, and Mandalay Hill, which offers stunning views of the area.

Shopping, Dining, Nightlife

When it comes to shopping, make a beeline to Bogyoke Aung San Market. Just remember those comfy shoes, because there are over 2000 shops here with local goods. And with money you saved with your Myanmar package, you know you can pick up a ton of hand-crafted jewellery, artwork and dolls. The market is open daily, so you can return on each afternoon of your holiday in Myanmar and still find new treasures.

After all that shopping, it’s time for chomping. Get those chopsticks ready for Myanmar specialties such as mohinga, a rice noodle dish served with fish soup. Pickled tea leaves with a hint of oil and seasoning are another option, and often offered as a salad. For the most part, rice is the main component of nearly every meal here, so if you love rice, everything will taste nice. It’s what Myanmar holidays are all about!

Once the sun goes down, stick to the Yangon area, especially around Tein Gyi Zay Plaza. Here you’ll find a budding nightclub scene with cheap booze and a good time. After all your days of exploring, this is a great spot to simply relax with the locals.

What’s Next?

If Myanmar has been on your radar for a while now, stop daydreaming and get packing. Use our cheap Myanmar packages to get to this mysterious and beautiful country. But if you really want to explore the area (and who doesn’t?), take a peek at our Bangkok holiday packages so you can see the busy city before diving into the elusive Burma.
