Travelling alone, but together, that is the 'single tour' concept. Discover Burma single tours with like-minded travellers where you have the choice of going your own way or joining in with some group activities every once in a while.
A single tour of Burma will show you the many cultural highlights and the beautiful scenery. Burma is a fascinating country with a turbulent past. The main religion in Burma is Buddhism, evidenced by the fairy tale cities, the cities of the kings and the abundant golden pagodas.
Burma had been closed to the outside world for many years and you’ll barely notice any Western influence while travelling here. Burma represents Asia at its purist. Bagan, probably one of the country’s most impressive places, is an area full of dozens of square kilometres of temples, pagodas and palaces. An absolutely breath-taking sight!
The Shwedagon pagoda in Yangon is another very impressive sight to take in during your single tour of Burma. This pagoda is continuously decorated with gold leaf by the thousands of pilgrims that visit. The golden stone pagoda is worth a visit as well. Perched precariously on the cliff top, it looks as if this stupa will fall off the mountain at any time.
Nature lovers will have a great time in Burma too. The country offers many possibilities for enjoyable walks through forests and hilly landscapes, leading to colourful villages where you’ll be warmly received by the hospitable population. Take a boat tour of the Inle Lake and discover villages built on poles and floating gardens… simply sensational!
Meet the friendly locals during your single tour of Burma and enjoy the impressive culture and the beautiful scenery of the country!
