Plan a Gap Year to Myanmar
Myanmar will give you an insight into how people travelled through Asia before the era of globalisation and mass tourism. Here you will find thousands of beautiful temples waiting to be discovered and an abundance of golden Buddhas. You will be able to relax on beautiful sandy beaches, trek through pine forests and visit rural villages and hitherto little-known ancient cultures.
We list programs for students, graduates, career breaks and people seeking a new challenging experience. If you would like to discover more of Myanmar than book an experience through our website where you can see the highlights, hidden gems and learn more about the culture of the country.
Some of the top attractions to visit in Myanmar include Shwedagon Pagoda, this is the most important Buddhist shrine and the pure gold structure stands at a massive 98m tall. To pack even more adventure, take the road to Mandalay to visit Myanmar’s former imperial capital. This exciting jungle road will take you to the centre of Burmese culture so you can discover a great deal more about the history of the country.
