Following in the footsteps of InsideJapan's successful and long-standing "Japan Unmasked" group tour, our Burma Unmasked tour aims to provide you with the best possible introduction to Burma at the lowest possible cost. With a range of fantastic destinations, minimal inclusions, and simple yet comfortable accommodation, we've ensured that this is one of our most flexible group tours - leaving you free to spend as much or as little as you wish on optional extras.

Whisking you through the evocative streets of Mandalay, the spectacular temples of Bagan, the idyllic floating villages of Inle Lake and the impressive golden pagoda at Yangon; Burma Unmasked introduces all of Burma's most renowned natural, historical and cultural attractions. Along the way you'll visit ancient royal capitals, see beautiful colonial architecture, enjoy lush and stunning scenery, explore traditional markets and see expert craftsmen at work - amongst many more highlights.

You will be accompanied throughout the tour by an experienced InsideBurma tour leader, who has travelled extensively in the region and will not only ensure that every aspect of logistics is taken care of, but will also give you a fascinating insight into Burmese culture and society. In addition to your tour leader, a collection of excellent local guides will give you an alternative perspective on each destination, providing an invaluable link to the communities you visit.

Depending on when you choose to travel, the tour may be timed to take advantage of one of Burma's exciting regional festivals. Our February departure catches the Shwedagon Pagoda Festival in Yangon, while our October departure coincides with the Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda Festival on Inle Lake. Festivals are when the local people are at their most open, friendly and relaxed, so either of these is sure to be a highlight of your trip.
