Admire architectural marvels, discover different cultures, and learn the secrets behind local arts and crafts on a journey to see the very best Myanmar has to offer.
Your voyage embarks from Yangon, where you'll wander among the city's diverse population as you gaze at golden pagodas and stately monuments. Venturing beyond Yangon's urban borders, you'll travel to the Golden Rock, one of the holiest sites in Myanmar, and Bago, an ancient Mon capital for your first taste of rural Burmese lifestyles.
Flying north, touch down at Inle Lake, where you'll stroll among weaving workshops and hilltribe markets. Witness the incredible leg-rowing Inthar fishermen, one of many 'uniquely Burmese' things you will see on your Myanmar tour. From there, you'll head to Mandalay, a regal Burmese city and the gateway to the evocative former royal capitals.
You'll then travel overland to Bagan, veering off the tourist trail and transferring by jeep and boat through Monywa and Pakokku. Along the way you'll see sites such as the Thanboddhay Pagoda and the labyrinthine-like sandstone caves of Po Win Taung. You'll discover the peaceful rhythm of Burmese village life as you continue south along the Irrawaddy River by boat, stopping at hidden temples on the way to Bagan.
