Travelling to a nation that was cut off from the outside world for so long will always be an adventure – and our Myanmar adventure holidays reveal the most thrilling aspects of this unique country.
Explore ruined cities by horse and cart, canoe Inle Lake and meet the famous leg-rowing fishermen. Spend the night in a hill tribe village or head off the beaten track to meet the Moken “sea gypsies”.
With more than 800 islands in the Andaman Sean, diving in this mostly undiscovered area should be on the top of the wish list of any Scuba diver. Despite the undisputed potential of its over-2000 km tropical coastline, the scuba diving industry in Myanmar is still very much in its infancy. With hardly any other diving group in sight, and with still many undiscovered dive sites around, diving in Myanmar is a true adventurous experience.
Rafting & Watersports
Popular water sports at Myanmar’s pristine beaches such as Ngapali and Ngwe Saung include snorkeling, scuba diving, and kayaking. White water rafting is also a great and increasingly popular activity for those seeking blood-pumping adventure in Myanmar, and the best rafting spots can be found in the northern part of the country. The Malihka River, one of the major tributaries of the Irrawaddy, is a thrill-seeker’s dream. The rapids have ratings of 4 and 5 on a scale of 6, which give rafters the exciting opportunity to enjoy their river experience to the fullest.
