Myanmar Walking Tours

Land of the Golden Pagodas

It is the quiet mystique of Myanmar that proves so compelling. Join us as we explore this largely undiscovered land, one of the gems of Southeast Asia—and one of the most extraordinary trips in B&R’s long history. From walking the lush countryside, to strolling through ancient villages and spectacular temples, to navigating narrow canals in a long boat, we take in this remarkable country at a pace that reflects its gentle character and reveals a land that will forever live in your imagination.

Signature

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Notes from the Road

My Kingdom for a (Teak) House: How I Turned a Myanmar Mayor’s Home into a Personal Pop-up Hotel

When I first set out on the eastern shore of Inle Lake into the Pa-O kingdom, I wasn’t sure what I was going to find. The sanctions were still up, I was going into a place where the only known maps are hand drawn, and my task was a tall one: to ask locals to let us take over their houses for a night so they could be remade into pop-up hotels for foreigners.
