Description

See the best of Myanmar, with river cruises, and visits to unseen areas and local communities. Start in historic Yangon and its old colonial buildings. See Bagan’s beautiful scenery and famous craft villages. Visit the ancient capitals of Ava and Amarapura; and discover Mandalay and magnificent Inle Lake

Tour Yangon, formerly known as ‘Rangoon’ in its days as a British colony. Join the locals at a tea shop to drink tea or coffee and try out their delicious snacks. Walk to Shwedagon pagoda, the most revered in all of Myanmar. Fly to the ancient capital, Bagan and visit a cave temple filled with exquisite murals. See the amazing sunset from the upper terrace of a temple. Go to one of Bagan’s lesser-known areas and take a cruise down the Irrawaddy River to witness everyday riverside life.  See the ‘World’s Biggest Book’: 729 marble stone slabs of Buddhist scripture at Kuthodaw Pagoda. Learn more about the craftwork for which Mandalay is famed by visiting workshops and cottage industries.

Continue to Ava, the former capital and tour the calm streets by local horse cart. Get back on the road to see the next former capital; Amarapura. Mahagandayon monastery here is home to over 1000 monks. Walk along the world’s longest teak bridge, constructed from 984 teak posts that were once part of a palace.

Head out onto magnificent Inle Lake in a private motorboat, passing floating garden houses built on stilts and the ‘leg-rowing’ fishermen of the lake. See the famous ‘jumping cats’ at the nearby monastery and visit a village of the indigenous lake people. Go to a local school here to meet the staff and pupils of this community. Take a ride through the city’s outskirts on Yangon’s circular train. Finally, have a stroll around Bogyoke Market, filled with handmade goods and curios; a perfect place for gift shopping.
