Burma is a truly unique, blossoming East Asian flower. Also known as Myanmar, the country has been inaccessible to travelers for decades, and the isolation left it untouched by the outside world. As a consequence, its landscapes, colorful cultures and strong beliefs remain refreshingly unspoiled, and are a true gem among other countries of the region. Though a beautiful country, it is the genuine delight, wonder and the friendliness of the locals that make it one of the most appealing countries in Asia.

Burma is literally scattered with gold. The fertile lands along the banks of the Ayeryarwady River are littered with pagodas, some shiny, others deepened to a rich patina over the years. Its sublime landscapes, captivating history, serene people and the deeply Buddhist culture make it a mythical place like no other. The country is brimming with treasured sights: from sunset over the Shwedagon Pagoda and gold-gilded Buddhas in Yangon to dawn breaking over the magical stupas and temples of Bagan, to gliding across the glassy surface of Lake Inle. If Bagan is the historic heart, and its 2,230 temples rival Angkor Wat, then the tranquil Inle Lake is the spiritual magnet, and of course Mandalay, forever immortalized in Kipling's evocative writing. During our stay here, we'll discover the quietly proud country of wonder and mystery, unfolding into a patchwork of dream-like landscapes and unforgettable views dotted with golden pagodas. Burma will excite, impress and intrigue you, and you will find the kind of Asia here that no longer exists in other places. Renowned in the annals of global adventurers a century ago, Burma has opened its doors again, and we're sure you'll agree with Rudyard Kipling, who wrote, "This is Burma, and it is unlike any land you know about." That was in 1898, and it's still true today.

I feel that S&S Travels is well worth the money. They’ve put together a great trip. I can always count on them. Just wish they went to more destinations.

I love S+S tours! I’ve made life long friends. I sleep in luxury, but experience real cultural experiences. And Myanmar was a fantastic place to visit. The people were exceptional!

Wonderful trip, lots of new things to experience. Wonderful people – extremely interesting.
Judy from Oregon

The tour was at a good pace with enough free time to explore or go to a spa. Mr. Oo and Becky were a perfect team to guide this group. I laughed quite a bit, learned a lot about Myanmar and truly loved the opportunity to visit this beautiful country.

Why travel with other women?
Many women do not have families or compatible friends who wish to travel. When going on a main-stream tour, women often find that most activities are geared towards couples and quite often they feel left out. Singles' tours are not always what women are looking for. If you do not have a traveling companion, there is also the issue of the expensive "single supplement", sometimes as much as 50 or even 100 percent of the tour cost. By going on women-only tours, women can easily avoid paying for the single supplement by sharing a room with another woman traveler.
