In 1898, Rudyard Kipling wrote that Burma (also known by its official name, the Republic of the Union of Myanmar) was 'quite unlike any land you know about'. Little has changed, and Burma's secluded unspoilt beaches, enchanting fishing villages, ancient temples and colourful cultures lie in wait to be discovered.

This undiscovered landscape is framed by endless green hills that cocoon vast fertile plains and mighty waterways, chief among them the great Irrawaddy River. Sharing borders to the west with India and Bangladesh, to the north with Tibet and China and to the east with Thailand and Laos, Burma has for millennia bridged cultures from across Asia.

Kuoni Insider

Travelling through Burma offered us a glimpse at a destination unique and unspoilt by mass tourism. The people are very friendly and deeply dedicated to their Buddist beliefs. Bagan and Mandalay offered us the opportunity to see the very best temples and ancient sites - the most impressive we've seen across all of the Far East.
