Myanmar

“The Mystery”

Of all the countries in Asia, Myanmar is probably the least understood and least visited. Home to fascinating floating villages, King Mindon’s ancient capital, the peaceful Ayeyarwady River and dazzling golden temples. That such an otherworldly site has remained undiscovered by tourists for so long serves as further proof of its mystery—and our good fortune.

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.

Kristi Elborne

Director of Asia-Pacific

Kristi cut her teeth with B&R guiding in the treacherous Provençal countryside. When life on the road became too dangerous—those boules fly fast!—she quickly found a home on our Trip Planning team. She’s travelled extensively though both Asia and Europe, and can speak four languages. Fortunately for us, she remains humble in each of them.

Arriving at Inle Lake to an amazing overwater bungalow and divine sunset views. The final night on the sandbar for dinner and concert with a full moon was quite incredible!

In the News

(Tyler Dillon’s) itineraries take travelers into small villages where they are sometimes the first foreigners the villagers have ever seen, and where they can participate in local celebrations and get to know the country’s friendly people—perhaps via a monastery stay or tea with chieftains. He can also orchestrate a private sunset dinner in front of one of Bagan’s famed temples, or a traditional boat race on Inle Lake.
