Discover Myanmar as a family, travelling in a small group with the support of an expert team. With two internal flights and some sections covered by transfer vehicle, you’ll experience incredible diversity while travelling at a relaxed pace. Boat trips and scavenger hunts add to the adventure, and you’ll learn about local legends when you tour through the Shan Hills and enter the Golden Cave. Kayaking to the Inle Lake stilt-villages is a highlight, and the sunset view from Mandalay Hill is stunning.

Riding on top quality bikes, you’ll be out for up to four hours a day, including rest stops, activities and local lunches. Tag-alongs and child seats are available, and the cycling is mostly on backroads, with a few dirt tracks and rougher sections. When you arrive in Bagan, prepare to be amazed by its two thousand Buddhist temples, which are best viewed from a hot air balloon.

What if I can't find the departure date I need?

Please give us a call. If you are a group of four or more, we can usually add a departure date within the season to suit you.

Why are the hotels not listed in the itinerary?

We use a pool of hotels to maximise availability for you.

What is an ‘Easy’ cycle holiday?

Your days will involve gentle riding, mainly on flat terrain and with minimal effort required. Easy cycling holidays are suitable for most people whether you are a regular cyclist or not, however we recommend at least a few practice rides before your holiday!

We are always on hand to offer advice, so please give us a call if you wish to chat about the tour’s grading.

Will I have a local guide?

Yes, your guide will be English speaking and local. The local guide will be a highlight of your tour as they are experienced and will pass on their knowledge and passion for their country. They will show you the best places to eat, help you meet local people along the way and give you a real feel for the local culture. 

Can I take a break from the cycling?

Yes, if you want to take a break, jump into the the air conditioned support vehicle that is always available.    

What will the group size be?

The tour requires a minimum of 3 people to run and there will be a maximum of 14 guests. 

What will the food be like?

Burmese food has a distinct taste, you will experience both Burmese and Shan cooking which is focused on the numerous side dishes rather than a main dish.  Drinking water is always included with meals, any other drinks will be extra. 

What snacks will I get during the cycling?

You will be supplied with local snacks & energy bars. Clean water and electrolyte drinks are provided to keep you hydrated. 

What will the weather be like?

Because Myanmar is the biggest mainland SE Asian country, there are large variations in the regional weather. The coolest time of year is generally November to February, with the highest temperatures in April & May. The June rains lower the temperatures but increase the humidity.  The wettest months are July & August before dry conditions return in November. Inle Lake can be a lot cooler than central Myanmar and has a longer and heavier rainy season. 

October & November are fantastic months to visit as tourist numbers are lower and the scenery is a lot greener. 

Can you arrange my flights?

Flights are not included with our tours. However, we are more than happy to offer advice on long haul and regional flights, based on our extensive experience of travel in Asia.
