5 Days / 4 nights package to the main city of Myanmar 624.- USD
Myanmar The largest of the GMS countries, Myanmar with it great history and myraid sites on interest, has the protemtial for strong tourism development.
Myanmar is probably the last undiscovered country in Southeast Asia. With a population of around 48 million peoples and a landsize bigger than France, and a great deal of cultural diversity, it is still very underdeveloped and there is quiet a lot of poverty in the country.
With its harsh political system, Burma was closed to the outside world for a long time, and even now many people don't want to travel to Burma because the dont agree with the current regime and don't want to support the regime by spending their money their. However tourism helps many local people, for example guide, driver or hotel staff or small shop owners. These people would have to struggle a lot more if there were no tourists. And we think it is good for these Burmese people to see for themselves what people from the western world are really like.
Popular places for visitors are the capital Yangon with its spectacular Scwedagon Pagoda, over 2500 year's old; Mandalay, the country's centre of Buddhism and culture; Bagan, the cradle Myanmar civilisation with its plain of pagodas reminiscent of the great complex at Angkor
