Having recently emerged from a long period of political instability, Myanmar is now beginning to find its own footing, making it an opportune moment for an authentic adventure there. In the staunchly religious country, roam amongst the exquisite stupas and receive a monk’s blessing at the Shwedagon Pagoda, one of the country’s most iconic, or enjoy a delectable gourmet picnic at the Shwe Indein Pagoda. Private tours to Myanmar’s ancient capital, Amarapura, and a soaring hot-air balloon ride complete with champagne and breakfast over Bagan for unparalleled views of the landscape can also be arranged.
To further immerse yourself in local culture, partake in a private marionette-making experience and explore the traditional medicine market before receiving a soothing massage. Oenophiles can also opt for a private wine-tasting tour around the vineyards of the vast Inle Lake, an up-and-coming wine region, to sample the best Burmese wines on offer. As the largest country in Southeast Asia, Myanmar can be tricky to navigate, so why not opt for seamless travels with Quotient and save yourself the headache?
