It is no doubt that Myanmar is a cultural treasure trove, but for those of you who love luxury too, we have designed the ultimate luxury tour of Myanmar using her finest luxury hotels and most exclusive experiences.
Arrive in Yangon, where you are met and enjoy arrival service before being transferred to your hotel. Overnight at The Strand Hotel in Yangon – one of the most iconic 5 star hotels in Yangon. Built in 1901, it remains as awe inspiring as it was in the early 20th Century.
Upon your arrival in Yangon, welcome by our tour guide and transferred to your hotel for check-in. Enjoy private tour and drive through downtown to explore the city centre and its fabulous mix of architecture and sites. The streets are filled with historical buildings many of which have a faded colonial charm not seen elsewhere in Asia. Learn about the fascinating history of the city as well as get a taste for the more modern side of the city.
Then visit famous Reclining Buddha Pagoda, 70-meter long, and the feet of the statue carved with traditional symbols and often many locals gathering to pay homage and pray. In the late afternoon set off to see the sunset at the breathtaking Shwedagon Pagoda, one of the most beautiful sacred sites in all of Myanmar. The exterior of the stupa is plated with 8,688 solid gold slabs, its tip set with 5,448 diamonds and 2,317 rubies, sapphires and topaz. A huge emerald sits in the middle to catch the first and last rays of the sun. At the pagoda observe local pilgrims and monks offering their devotions and enjoy the amazing sunset view at Shwedagon pagoda.
Dinner at Le Planteur, Burma’s premier fine dining establishment set in an ambient garden.

We had been warned that in a country like Myanmar we should be prepared for glitches in our travel but our travel was as smooth and problem free as it could have been. I hope to return to Myanmar in the future to see more of your fascinating country and rest assured we will use Myanmar Shalom to plan our trip.
Your leadership role in the Jewish community of Myanmar and your ability to well manage your travel agent is truly amazing. Sammy, it was such an hour to meet you in Yangon as we have been reading about you and the community in newspapers. We had amazing trip. Your guides & office staff took such a good care for us in each city. Please share our thanks & appreciation to them.
They listened carefully to our desires, kept us informed, and developed a perfect itinerary! We were able to make adjustments and suggestions along the way
What a wonderful experience we had during our Myanmar visit, something that we never cease talking about to our friends. We are fortunate to have travelled to many countries in all parts of the world, but nothing even begins to equal the wonder and beauty of our visit to Myanmar, truly an unforgettable experience. So much of our enjoyment was a result of the care and planning of Myanmar Shalom and of the Samuels, and of their excellent team of guides. We hope you can manage to look after the synagogue and protect that magnificent Torah.
As first-time travelers to Myanmar, we were so grateful that we had Myanmar Shalom to help us with the details. From the amazing hotels to the lovely excursions, we certainly had a memorable trip.
