These are my favourite tours and recommended itineraries from my friends at go-myanmar.com who are a well established local tour and travel operator with great connections. To know more details and book them, please fill in the contact form at the bottom of the page and the message will go directly to them.

You can also use these itineraries as a reference and do it your way, but I recommend at least you book your hotels in advanced, specially during high season from October to April.
