Classic Myanmar Tour
Filled with wonderful people, historic sites, rural intrigues and modern markets, Myanmar, also known as Burma, has only recently become a tourist destination.
On this 12 day tour you’ll get to see some of Myanmar’s most popular sights, as well as exploring some of the country’s more “off the beaten track” sites. You will travel from the vibrant Yangon, where you will see a mix of colonial architecture, modern high-rises and gold-laden Buddhist pagodas; to the awe inspiring Shwedagon Pagoda and the unique Golden Rock.
The tour will take you through rural regions to Bagan, on the banks of the Ayeyarwady River, to explore the many pagodas and temples that have helped the area become an Archaeological Zone World Heritage Area. From there, you will explore Mandalay and the floating farms of the beautiful Inle Lake.
In 12 days, you will be amazed at how much you will see and experience.
