Mandalay, Burma, holidays and tours
Getting there
There are no direct flights from the UK to Burma. However there are several good choices for connecting flights. Thai Airways offer flights to Rangoon via Bangkok, with Malaysia Airlines via Kuala Lumpur and Singapore Airlines via Singapore.

Guide to the country
Burma is a country of great beauty and diversity, dominated by lush mountain slopes covered with alpine forests in the far north and steamy jungles in the south; broad flat plains in central regions like Bagan; the famous Irrawaddy River and over 1199 miles of coastline boasting some of Asia’s most stunning beaches. Your travels in the country will take in some of the gorgeous river and mountain scenery in the country, the extraordinary temple studded plains of Bagan, the tranquil villages around lovely Inle Lake as well as the famous cities of Mandalay and Rangoon. While these are the country’s biggest cities, they are relaxed, at times sleepy - a far cry from the huge size and frenetic pace of many other cities in Asia.


When to go
Most of Burma lies within the Tropic Zone. It has a monsoon climate with three main seasons. The hottest period is between February and May, with little or no rain and temperatures between 30°Cand 35°C. The rainy season exists from May to October when the country receives most of its yearly rainfall and temperatures ranging from 25°Cto 30°C. You can expect dry, cooler weather from October to February with temperatures at 20°C– 25°Cbut as cold as 5°Cin higher altitudes or at Inle Lake.

Important to note
British passport holders require a visa to visit Burma and a visa must be obtained before you depart the UK. It can be arranged up to 3 months before your scheduled arrival date into Burma. A full passport is required, valid for at least 6 months beyond the date of your departure from Burma. Once issued, the visa is valid for 3 months with a maximum stay in the country of 28 days. Assistance with obtaining a visa can be given by The Travel Visa Company. www.thetravelvisacompany.co.uk tel: 01270 250590. We strongly recommend you consult your preferred doctor for the most up-to-date health advice at least one month prior to travel. The official language of Burma is Burmese. Basic English is widely spoken in urban areas and around popular tourist sites such as Bagan. English is well-understood and widely spoken by guides and hotel staff. The official currency is Kyat (MMK). US Dollars are widely accepted and you are advised to take US Dollars with you. Credit cards are not widely accepted and there are no ATMs.
