FLYMYA doesn’t just do internal flights and car hire; it also hooks you up with things to do in Yangon, Bagan and Mandalay, including hot-air ballons, scuba diving, elephant watching and more
Daydreaming about that next big vacation is one of our favourite ways to spend time, especially on a Monday morning. And, living in Singapore, we’re lucky enough to have Asia for a wanderlust playground; you’d think we’d be spoilt for choice! But throw limited vacay days into the mix, and the pressure mounts to find a destination that strikes the perfect balance between beach, adventure, culture, and partying. Oh, and we also want somewhere off the beaten track and relatively undiscovered to give the peeps back home an envy-worthy case of FOMO. Too much to ask? Don’t think so; it’s time to stick Myanmar (Burma) on your travel bucket list.
Still largely untouched by Western influence – but with direct flights from Singapore clocking in at slightly less than three hours – now is the time to visit the land of golden pagodas. With a growing tourist trade and evolving internal infrastructure, expect an authentic experience that is perfect for the adventure-hungry traveller. And thanks to FLYMYA, getting around Myanmar has never been easier. Whether you need internal flights, car hire, or some inspo for what to do while there, this one-stop website will ensure you make the most of your time away.
If you needed further persuading, check out these adventurous activities from FLYMYA that will add a dash of awesome-ness to your holiday.
Dive junkies; check out the untouched marine life near Ngwe Saung Beach. With corals surrounding three small islands just off the coast, the clear warm waters of the Andaman sea make this an awesome spot to view the rich biodiversity; great for snorkellers too! For pro divers, go deep just off Ngapali beach; there’s plenty of pristine reefs waiting to be explored.
What better way to take in the Buddhist zen of beautiful Bagan than with a scenic balloon flight? You’ll glide straight over thousands of ancient pagodas and the Irrawaddy river. Add a bottle of Champagne into the mix to make this extra special.
If heights aren’t your thing, you can check out Myanmar by ground too. Why not take a leisurely cycle tour through Bagan’s beautiful countryside, ancient temples, rice fields, and local villages? Or see a different side to Yangon by biking through its backstreets, markets, and temples.
