Luxury Itineraries Launch in Myanmar

Luxury Travel Ltd to Unveil Discover Myanmar from Highlights to Beach Relaxation in Style for Discerning Travelers. Travelers will visit all highlights of Myanmar tour embracing the heritage and cultures, then rest and relax at Ngapali Beach.

Hanoi, Vietnam, March 15, 2012 -- Luxury Travel Ltd is an award winning luxury tour operator and has unveiled a new upscale travel experience for the most discerning travelers to Myanmar.

On this latest Myanmar tour, travelers will discover the best places in Yangon-Bagan-Mandalay-Inle Lake and rest and relax in the best beach of Myanmar in the Bay of Bengal in the Indian Ocean.

Myanmar or Burma is the sleeping dragon of Southeast Asia. Political and economic reforms will de facto create a new impetus in the tourism sector. All media and people talk about a new era of the country. Myanmar is a buzz world for savvy cultural travelers who want to be the first to discover a country.

Myanmar has attracted travelers for decades to its abundant forests, rich wildlife, ancient cities and fascinating culture. You will be surprised by pristine beaches, glittering golden temples and majestic pagodas, and you'll start to realize what the buzz is all about” Said Pham Ha, Founder and CEO of Luxury Travel Ltd.

Myanmar is known as the Land of the Million Temples. The main destinations in Myanmar, Yangon, Mandalay and Bagan are home to thousands of golden temples and treasured pagodas.

Yangon is the capital of Myanmar and located in the southern region and spread across three rivers. Mandalay is the historical capital of Myanmar and home to thousands of cultural memorials, Buddhist monasteries and stunning palaces. Myanmar's archaeological crown belongs to sparkling Bagan. Founded as a kingdom in 1044, Bagan is home to thousands of temples, pagodas, stupas and ruins, making it one of the richest archaeological sites in Southeast Asia.

Heho where Inle Lake is located. Visiting Inle Lake is like traveling back in time. Over 70000 people from different group ethnic groups live in small villages and four small towns bordering the lake. Their way of life has little changed over the years. Fisherman still row boat with one leg while standing on the other. It is amazing! Although tourism has started to creep its way into village life, the lake still offers a serene escape from the hectic pace of life found elsewhere in Asia.

Among Ngapali beach, Ngwesaung Beach, Chaungtha Beach, Ngapali beach is probably the best and a premier beach destination in Myanmar for holidaymakers who want to be the first to discover a beach destination with un-spoilt white sand beaches fringed with coconut groves as far as the eye can see.

From the seductive capital Yangon (where noise-polluting scooters and horn-honking are banned) and the mist-cloaked forests of the Irrawaddy, to the beguiling Inle Lake and stupa-studded Bagan (best viewed from a hot-air balloon at dawn), to enjoy empty beach in Ngapali and not forgetting the grins and handshakes here, there and everywhere, Burma is Asia as it once was, it’s the authenticity.” said Charlotte Ham, Marketing Senior Executive, Luxury Travel Ltd Myanmar. “This trip has been carefully designed to provide a unique experience in the destination, promote cultural understanding and exchange, flow smoothly from place to place, allow time for relaxation and exploration on your own, provide maximum value, and very importantly to be enjoyable. The itinerary can be modified to suit your tastes, timeframe, budget, and special interests.”

Tour prices start from 4,999 USD per person for two persons (double occupancy), including private transfer, pick up and drop off services, domestic flights, meals, English or French speaking guide, entrance fees, and luxury five star accommodations such as Aureum Palace in Bagan and Ngapali, The Governor Residence in Yangoon.

Hillary Clinton has paid an official visit to Myanmar or Burma in 2011, the first such U.S. diplomatic overture in half a century. Political and economic reforms will de facto create a new impetus in the tourism sector. The boycott of the destination - in place for many decades - is fading away with tourists now keen to visit one of Southeast Asian tourism’s last frontiers. Myanmar is a fantastic destination for its cultural and natural assets. And its wonderful population still gives authentic hospitality to visitors. Myanmar will be Southeast Asia's next fabulous destination for visitors who prefer to travel independently and pay a luxury over joining traditional tour groups. These travelers like to experience and interact at a deeper level with the local culture, heritage, and local people. This Luxury Myanmar tour has all to offer”, added Pham Ha.

Opened in 2004, Luxury Travel Company Limited is the first luxury tour operator and DMC in Indochina, Thailand and Myanmar, has its own offices, luxury vehicles, luxury travel advisors, and serves thousands of high-end travelers every year. The company’s depth of experience and large infrastructure enable it to create unique itineraries with the operational confidence to fulfill client expectations.
