Burma cycling tours take in many of the best attractions of Burma by our bike trip , both urban and rural. Burma is a vast country and there are some fantastic and unique sites, although some areas are off-limits. Starting in Rangoon (Yangon), the Shwedagon Pagoda is the mother of all Buddhist temples in the region, dominating the city with its lofty gilded chedi. Numerous Buddhist pagodas dot the landscape of Bagan, in the upper plains, and this vast ancient site is a marvel at sunset with its numerous ancient spires. There is also delightful heritage on display throughout Mandalay, the former royal capital further north, and a wander among the lanes and old teak houses of this sleepy regional town is relaxing. To truly kick back, Inle Lake is a pretty and serene destination with its popular houseboat accommodation. The coast and islands are another area that has appeal though they remain undeveloped and these unspoilt Andaman beauty spots receive fewer visitors than you would expect.
