MAGNIFICENT MYANMAR
The Golden Land of Burma

28th October – 9th November 2017

Optional Pre-conference Extension to Vietnam

Optional Post-conference Cruises

“It doesn't matter whether this is your first or 51st visit to Myanmar: you will not fail to notice the energy, hope and possibilities for the future that hang in the air. Exiles are returning, joining others in rising to the challenge of bringing their country into the 21st century at the same time as preserving the best of the past. Myanmar has many problems to fix but its people remain as stoic and charming as ever. Slow down, sit, listen and connect with them – it's the best way to appreciate what's truly golden about this land.”
Simon Richmond, Travel Writer

We are delighted to be returning to one of the world’s most serene, tranquil and welcoming countries; a country that has changed dramatically over the last few years and has become one of the most exciting tourist destinations on the planet. We have planned an itinerary that will bring you memories to treasure; the breathtaking panorama of sunset over the 2000 ancient Pagodas and Stupas that litter the plains at Bagan; the stunning sweep of Lake Inle and its foot rowing fishermen, intimate moments as we explore the rural backwaters of Shan state and the awe inspiring solid gold capped Shwedgon Pagoda in Yangon. Finish with the ultimate in relaxation at Ngapali Beach with its endless sands caressed by the Andeman Sea.

Back in 2010 we were privileged to offer one of our most memorable conferences bringing medical equipment to isolated villages and walking through markets where foreign visitors were unheard of. A lot has changed since then when Aung San Suu Kyi was still under house arrest, and whilst we had access to most places we knew that we were being carefully watched and directed to what we could and could not see and do.

Myanmar has since opened its gates and hearts to the world and in return the everyday features of life have become commonplace. Where mobile phones were strictly controlled SIM card salesmen now greet you at the airport. Where once only dollars were accepted and credit cards as useful as a chocolate teapot, ATM machines abound churning out fat wads of the still dubious but ever so essential Myanmar Kyat .

Despite those changes Myanmar is still a dream thanks to the gentle disposition and anglophillic attitudes of the people coupled with a land containing a never ending parade of wonders.

Having visited Myanmar a number of times we are perfectly positioned to create an itinerary that offer you not only the best of the tourist sights but also some special insights and experiences that we can’t wait to share.

Of course there is always so much more to see than can be accommodated on a short trip and so we have arranged delightful optional programmes that dovetails the main conference. Spend a week on our Vietnam pre-conference extension (click here for details) exploring the wonders of this beautiful and diverse country and then fly to meet us in Yangon. Pre or Post conference, if you didn’t manage to join us on our first Cruise in Myanmar (or just had such a special time you wish to do it again) we can offer an optional week or just few days cruising the Irawaddy and exploring the waterway that is the heart and soul of this ancient land (for more information please contact us for a selection of itineraries).

Our flights with Vietnam Airlines, Thai and Emirates work perfectly for these itineraries, but we can also arrange BA flights if you prefer or organise an alternative tailor-made pre or post conference extension. If you want to discuss options please don’t hesitate in contacting us on 01923469363 or contact anne@conferenceplus.co.uk
