Myanmar

Enjoy unspoilt beauty, culture, and tradition on a luxury tour through Myanmar.

Formerly Burma, Myanmar is a peaceful, untouched country that will surprise and delight travellers of all ages. Its ancient culture, friendly people, and natural wonders make it well-suited to individuals, couples, or small groups interested in a seldom-seen side of Southeast Asia.

A&K is proud to be one of the oldest and most established private travel companies currently operating in Myanmar. Founded in 1997, our team is committed to pioneering luxury holidays around the region, making sure you enjoy a unique and memorable experience.

Bask in the stillness and serenity of Inle Lake aboard the luxurious Sanctuary Ananda, purpose built to navigate Myanmar’s rivers and tributaries. Next, visit the many glittering pagodas in Mandalay, an important religious and monastic centre. Buddhist festivals, beautiful textiles, and picture-perfect sunsets are waiting for you.

Best time to travel to Myanmar

Because Myanmar has a tropical climate, we recommend travelling between October and March to escape the humidity and monsoon rains. Visit in April for beautiful, moderate temperatures and the beloved Thingyan water festival, a fun, colourful way to welcome the New Year.

Award-winning luxury tours of Myanmar

Travellers planning a visit to Myanmar with A&K can choose from our exclusive selection of  customisable private journeys, luxury small group journeys, and boutique cruises. Each is an opportunity to explore local hotspots and hidden gems as you learn about the culture, controversy, and history that has made The Golden Land what it is today.

Our team is committed to helping you discover the many sights and sounds of Myanmar, from laneway markets full of textiles, handicrafts, and fresh produce, to serene, sacred Buddhist monuments.

Participate in an early morning photographic tour of Yangon alongside a professional photographer; there, you’ll capture stills of Shwedagon

Pagoda, a beautiful structure that attracts thousands of worshippers each year. Travel by horse-and-cart through the Bagan plains, and find yourself captivated by a peaceful way of life along the banks of the Irrawaddy River.

Experience Myanmar aboard the Sanctuary Ananda 

Gaze out upon Myanmar’s many charming villages, golden pagodas, and rolling hills aboard our private luxury vessel, the Sanctuary Ananda. We take care to elevate your travel experience with a variety of cultural and educational offerings. Cigar making lessons, cooking demonstrations, ethnic dinners, and live music and dance performances will immerse you in and endear you to Myanmar’s vibrant culture.

Whether you’re on the water or on land, each and every accommodation selected for your luxury holiday in Myanmar is carefully evaluated to meet our exacting standards of comfort and safety. On arrival in Bagan, unwind at the glittering Aureum Palace Hotel, a property with perfectly-appointed villas and one-of-a-kind views. An equally relaxing, rejuvenating experience awaits at Belmond Governor’s Residence in Yangon.
