Keen to embark on the holiday of a lifetime? We think a bike ride through Burma just about fits the bill. You can cycle your way around Myanmar (Burma) and witness up close some of the country’s most majestic landmarks, from the Thousand Temples of Bagan to the Inle Lake.
Myanmar is a country of diverse landscapes, ancient temples, awe-inspiring pagodas, and small villages or settlements. If you want to experience the ‘real’ Myanmar then travelling through it on two wheels is an excellent way of doing so. Are you ready to jump on the saddle and cycle your way around the country which has only recently opened its doors to holidaymakers and tourists? You won’t find more hospitable people than in Myanmar.
Ayuda Myanmar Travel can help you organise your trip to Myanmar. We have a variety of cycle tours on offer, including the ‘Best Bike Tour’ which covers most of the important tour sites in Myanmar. A cycle tour obviously makes for an active holiday, but there will still be plenty of opportunities in which to relax and soak up the culture and history of Myanmar. With so much to see and experience, it’s time to get booking that trip. Choose Ayuda Myanmar Travel.
