Myanmar Honeymoons

After decades of military rule, Myanmar is finally edging towards parity for its people. We waited a long time to take clients on holiday there, and even longer before offering our Myanmar honeymoons.

Logistically speaking, and due to the sometimes more complex nature of travel in certain parts of the country, a honeymoon in Myanmar can require a little more flexibility in the planning than some of its long established neighbours. However, since so many of our newlywed clients see their honeymoon as a chance for that 'adventure of a lifetime', we don't actually view this as a problem! And just because Myanmar is not your average honeymoon destination doesn't mean you can't relax here in comfort & style. Quite the opposite, in fact, thanks to some impressive recent hotel, cruise and resort openings.

 

Why choose Myanmar?

  • It can take a while to adjust to the traffic and pollution of Yangon, especially in the hotter months, but the combination of the Shwedagon Pagoda, the historic hotels and the worn charm of the former Colonial capital combine to make this one of our favourite cities in Asia today. Several exciting projects are currently underway to preserve the beautiful old architecture.
  • The Colonial-style riverboats that cruise the Ayeyarwady and Chindwin rivers still convey the glamour which seduced Orwell during his time here.
  • Tranquil Kalaw and neighbouring Pindaya, with its mesmersing sacred cave, offer temperate respite from the heat elsewhere in the country.
  • Gleaming temples sprout everywhere you tread, from the impossibly golden Shwedagon Pagoda in tranquil Yangon, to Bagan's myriad spires, piercing the dawn mist & glinting in the sunrise
  • You'll find beautiful spa accommodation around picturesque Inle Lake. For the more adventurous, a journey to the south area around Loikaw is a huge plus, escaping the more popular resorts around Nyaung Shwe and travelling through some of the Shan's most evocative scenery.
  • Myanmar shares a number of land borders with Thailand making it a great fit for some less obvious overland journeys.
  • The Mergui Archipelago at Myanmar's southern tip is any sane honeymooners dream destination. Spend your days on a live-aboard yaucht cruising between rarely visited islands fringed with white sand, swimming in the Andaman sea and snorkel its coral reefs.
