Vist downtown Yangon, Myanmar. Business District. Toa Payoh Vets.Yangon downtown has lots of history and many interesting food stalls, markets and local city folks. In 2008, European visitors seen in Yangon would be rarely encountered (image on left).

But in 2012, the number of European visitors in Yangon appears to be 50% of the tourists, especially at the
most famous Shwedagon Pagoda. 4- and 5-star hotel accommodation costs have increased due to great demand and insufficient supply.

Air Bagan is packed with Caucasian and Asian travellers in 2012 wanting to see the remaining historical ruins. There are two other domestic airlines flying to Bagan. Demand is great and therefore advance booking for hotels and domestic flight is necessary nowadays.

Design Travel Pte Ltd, a Singapore-licensed travel agency, collaborates only with reputable and reliable licensed tourist agencies in Myanmar to provide a value-for-money, hassle-free, pleasant and enjoyable travel to Myanmar for Singaporeans and Singapore residents.

Such tours are customised and pricing therefore depends on the period of travel (peak season or off-peak season), the quality and availability of hotel accommodation, the relatively higher costs of domestic flights, the higher cost of Silk Air fares as compared to MAI (Myanmar Airways International) fares and provision of meals.     

As there is a large increase in international tourism to Myanmar after the partial lifting of US and European sanctions, the demand for 4- and 5-star hotels and airline booking is extremely high since February 2012. Therefore, booking one month in advance or earlier confirmation is advised.   

The above itinerary has been customised for a couple who want to visit Myanmar's well known archaeological spots, serene Inle Lake and the famous pagodas of Yangon in October 2012. For more info on this tour or other package, contact: or just phone Judy at +65 9668-6468.
