A diversity of regional influences along with a century of imperial colonialism has shaped Burma into a cultural destination that will capture the hearts of adventurous travellers. Once isolated from the rest of the world, tourism is now encouraged in small groups allowing visitors to once again discover this beautifully preserved nation, which was described by Rudyard Kipling as 'quite unlike any land you know about'. There’s no better time than now to join a tour or luxury river cruise and see this transitioning nation for yourself.
