One Traveller, experts in group tours for the mature solo traveller, is introducing a brand new holiday to Myanmar in 2021.
Guests can expect to be dazzled by shimmering cities of gilded temples and enlivened by emerald green landscapes. The hospitable loal people are entering a new era and are ready to welcome visitors from afar.
Yangon, the former British capital of Rangoon, with its tranquil lakes, retains its faded colonial charm and bustling markets, as well as staggering sights such as the gold-leafed Shwedagon Pagoda, Myanmar’s holiest monument which dominates the city skyline.
In Bagan (see cover photo), the country’s medieval capital, an astonishing 3,000 temples rise from the plains on the banks of the Irrawaddy River.
Other highlights of the tour include truly delving into the history of Bagan, the centre of Myanmar from the 11th to 13th centuries, a visit to Ananda Temple and the Gu Byauki Temple with its beautiful frescoes and the Myazedi (jade) Stup. Guests can also take in the Inle Lake on the edge of the Shan Mountains where the fishermen practise leg-rowing and the ethnic tribal minorities still wear colourful tribal dress as they gather at the daily markets to trade and sell their wares.
This holiday includes the exclusive and dedicated services of a carefully selected One Traveller Tour Manager and an expert local guide in each area who are both there solely for One Traveller and stay with the group throughout the holiday.
