Visit Myanmar on a world cruise in 2019. Discover Rangoon and many other exciting ports of call on the voyage of a lifetime.

Isolated from the rest of the world for decades, Myanmar is an extraordinary blend of timelessness and change—from glittering golden temples rich in history to local markets, where the scent of exotic spices fills the air.

When you travel to Myanmar, find yourself in the midst of daily life in East-meets-West Yangon, where visitors can explore Shwedagon Pagoda, the country’s most sacred Buddhist site. Take a river cruise on the Irrawaddy River, stopping at remote villages and ancient sites, including the temples of Bagan and Gubyaukgyi Temple—a 12th-century cave temple filled with frescoes depicting scenes of the Buddha’s life. See the world’s longest teak bridge in Mandalay. Go in the fall for the Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda Festival at Inle Lake, featuring traditional song and dance and a gorgeous procession of long boats.

Tour remote areas, tucked between towering mountain peaks, and go beyond the gilded walls of sacred temples in this fascinating video that showcases what it’s like to travel to Myanmar.

Today, people's lives are so busy. We're thinking three days ahead just to get through our to-do lists. I love helping my clients plan vacations where they have nothing to do but relax; where time stands still, and you're just on vacation.
