Burma | Travel Bureau Gosforth


Each destination within Burma offers a flurry of activities and breathtaking sites to behold. Ngapali fuses two worlds in its exotic jungles and unspoiled shores. With luxury hotels dotting along the Bay of Bengal, it is the perfect place to unwind and watch your stresses sink like the sun. From November to March the season is at its peak, but Ngapali still retains its sleepy fishing village flavour.
For history lovers there is Mrauk U, an ancient archaelogical town submerged in its own heritage. The precarious and damp streets are lined with stone temples, intricate carvings and intimate archways. Other otherworldly sites include Taung Kala, this Buddhist Monastery is built atop a volcanic plug and visitors ascend 777 stairs in the jungle before reaching its sacred ground.
Within Burma's immersive mystery and low, jungle mist rises a wonder unlike anywhere in the world. Spiralling from the dense morning fog, the stone temples reflect the amber sunrise as the have for centuries to create a gilded city packed with secrets and infinite miracle. You can truly take advantage of jet-lag and use the time difference to witness the wondrous sunrise. Hot air balloon tours are available and summon a sensation of potent astonishment in the unrivalled romantic setting. The atmosphere her is so amorous and enthralling it has been voted the best place to get a yes by the Lonely Planet. Burma's enchanting allure is guaranteed to be cherished for a lifetime.

Yes, the staterooms are beautifully finished, the entertainment is spectacular and there is food to die for, but it was the brilliant design of Celebrity Edge’s public spaces that really took my breath away.
