Variation is certainly a key aspect that comes to mind when looking into what Myanmar has to offer to tourists.
For young and adventurous tourists, who are ready to explore unusual destinations, Myanmar is the new kid on the block when it comes to biking trips. Specialised biking operators based in Myanmar like Uncharted Horizons, Spice Roads, Myanmar Pure Travel and Grasshopper Adventures all offer trips on bike ranging from a few hours to more than 15 days.
Uncharted Horizons Manager Jochen Meissner said: “Myanmar offers everything a biker could wish for, explore the lush hills and meet different tribes in Shan state, or go for serious off-road mountain biking in Chin state, all far off the beaten tracks, exploring areas that are not accessible by car or on foot.
“Exploring Myanmar by bike opens all new possibilities to experience a completely new side of the country.”
Adam Platt-Hepworth, CEO of Grasshopper Adventures, added: “Grasshopper’s new two days overnight trip by bike from Bagan to Salay and back by boat to Bagan is becoming more and more popular, as is our combined bike and kayaking daytrip in Inle Lake – and we see Myanmar becoming trendy for bikers”.
