Tailor MadeOriginal

Burma Explorer

Burma is the travel experience of a lifetime. Stunning sights coupled with the friendliest people around.

Our 14 day journey takes in the main sites of central Burma. The vast expanse of Inle Lake, the 'cultural capital' of Mandalay and the splendour of Bagan. Travelling through the heartland you will get a feel for the daily lives of rural folk as well as be exposed to the cultural significance of Buddhism and Nat worship. The countryside varies from the cooler climes of the Shan plateau, to the warmer temperatures and barren plains of Bagan. A wonderful night spent on the Irrawaddy boat caps off our unforgettable adventure.

What People Are Saying

"Having travelled with groups almost everywhere in Asia over the last 10 years... Burma beats all the other countries by far. The people are amazing, warm and friendly, curious and always smiling. The landscape is beautiful, the sites like Bagan stunning and the guys from Global Drift make travel in Burma a real pleasure, don't miss it!!!"
