Myanmar Honeymoons

After decades of military rule, Myanmar is finally edging towards parity for its people, & now welcomes small groups of travellers. We waited a long time to take clients on holiday there read why here & we've waited even longer before offering Burma honeymoons.

This isn't a country where lying around being lazy feels - well, acceptable, really - since only the most wilfully ignorant can avoid Myanmar's recent oppressive past. Logistically speaking, honeymoons here can be awkward, with a certain flexibility required from the honeymooners.

Since so many of our newlywed clients see their honeymoon as a chance for that 'trip of a lifetime', we don't actually view this as a problem. Now - as Myanmar emerges in an international spotlight, but before the world's investors really move in - is a truly fascinating time to visit. After all, not everyone wants to spend their honeymoon drinking cocktails on just-another-beach, however exotic their location.

Behind the politics, an Asia of old remains very much in evidence. Pilgrimage sites like Golden Rock reinforce the powerful spirituality that underpins Burmese strength. Gleaming Buddhist temples sprout wherever you tread: the impossibly golden Shwedagon Pagoda in tranquil Yangon; Bagan's myriad spires, piercing the dawn mist & glinting in the sunrise.

And just because Myanmar is not your average honeymoon destination doesn't mean you can't relax here in comfort & style. Yangon's historic hotels, & the Colonial-style riverboats that cruise the mighty Ayeyarwady River, still convey the glamour that seduced Orwell during his time here. Around dreamy Inle Lake you'll find beautiful spa accommodation, while tranquil Amara Mountain offers temperate respite from the heat elsewhere.

Once you acknowledge that Myanmar is not about lolling in the sun, it becomes a compelling honeymoon destination.
