Combining a number of the country's most iconic destinations with the dramatic landscapes of Eastern and Central Burma, this is a trip for the travel connoisseur seeking experiences far from the usual tourist trail. Read more >

With less than 10% of the tourist arrivals of its near neighbour Thailand, Burma remains one of the least-explored countries in Asia - and there are pockets of life here that have barely been touched by the outside world. This trip will take you off the beaten track, into the heart of Burma's undiscovered regions.

Your journey commences with a border crossing from northern Thailand into the east of Burma's Shan State, to the border town of Kengtung. This remote and hilly region is home to numerous minority groups and makes for great introduction to Burma's back-country appeal. A train ride across the vertiginous Gyokteik Viaduct links colonial Pyin Oo Lwin with rural Hsipaw, a great base for excellent trekking for all levels of fitness.

In the dry zone of Central Burma you'll find the deservedly popular destinations of Mandalay and Bagan, but also the lesser known highlights of Chin State, across the Irrawaddy River. The 3,000 m summit of Mount Victoria (Nat Ma Taung), the highest peak in Chin State, acts as the fulcrum for several days' exploration of this region, hiking between the local minority villages.

A brief sojourn in Yangon provides opportunity to refresh and explore the nation's leafy former capital, before you arrive at the exotic final destination on your journey, the secluded paradise of Macleod Island in the Myeik Archipelago.
