Tour Itinerary

Discover the magic of Myanmar on a nine-day journey through some of its very best sights. Bookend your adventure in beautiful Yangon, where the golden Shwedagon Pagoda glitters in the sunset, and experience the many facets of Myanmar's heart and soul in between - tranquil temples, home-cooked cuisine, heartwarming villagers, grassroots culinary wizardry, floating lake islands and handmade local industry. Many modes of transport, from plane to bike to canoe, make for a convenient, exhilarating and authentic adventure across this mythical land.

Day 1: Yangon
Min Gala Ba! Welcome to Myanmar. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6pm. Please look for a note in the hotel lobby or ask the hotel reception where it will take place. If you're going to be late, please inform the hotel reception. We'll be collecting your insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so please ensure you have all these details to provide to your leader. After the meeting, there's an optional group dinner – a great chance to chat with fellow travellers and enjoy sumptuous Myanma cuisine, which draws variously on Mon, Indian and Chinese flavours.

Day 2: Bagan
Take an early morning flight to Bagan (approximately 1.5 hours). This famous archaeological site, located on the banks of the Ayeyarwady River, is where Theravada Buddhism was first introduced to the Kingdom. It was once the site of 10,000 temples, pagodas and monasteries; it still boasts a staggering 2,000 brick and gilded ruins. After arriving this morning, your leader will take you on a half-day bicycle tour of the stunning UNESCO site. Seeing these marvels on two wheels is ideal, as the site is quite spread out. You'll witness the grandeur of Ananda Temple and more.

Day 3: Bagan
Take a cooking class with a friendly, community-minded culinary expert this morning. Visit the local market to stock up on produce, then head to the kitchen to cook up a storm. Take the opportunity to ask your host about any mysterious ingredients you might see in the marketplace – she's a wealth of knowledge. As well as a chance to cook and taste real home-cooked Myanma cuisine, it's a good cause, with part of the proceeds going towards a local children's library initiative. Enjoy the fruits of your labour for lunch.

Day 4: Mandalay
Drive to Mandalay by private minibus (approximately 5 hours). Though it's mostly a hub for day trips, the enchanting and evocative former royal capital has many lovely churches, temples and mosques to discover. Enjoy free time exploring or simply relaxing this afternoon.

Day 5: Mandalay
Embark on a morning boat trip up the famous Ayeyarwady River to Mingun (approximately 1 hour each way). Here you will find a small handful of impressive pagodas. Spend some time exploring, then return to Mandalay. In the afternoon you will visit the Mandalay Palace and Shwenandaw monastery. In the late afternoon, head out of the city and witness the awesome sunset over the U Bein Bridge.

Day 6: Inle Lake
Today is a full day of travelling by private bus to Nyaung Shwe (approximately 9.5hrs). Enroute you will stop and visit Meikhtila CBT village. Visit the village, learn about the great work done with the community based tourism project and enjoy a hearty lunch here.This evening arrive at Nyaung Shwe, your gateway to Inle Lake, a picturesque and culturally fascinating area. Settle into your hotel, then enjoy free perhaps visit the . The town has a relaxed atmosphere and is pleasant to walk around. Perhaps visit the bustling night market this evening, or enjoy a cool drink in one the local bars and strike up a conversation with one of many fellow travellers floating around town.

Day 7: Inle Lake
In the morning you will explore the lush waters of Inle Lake by canoe. Then continue by motorised boat for a sightseeing tour. You will stop in to see the local cigar makers, silk and lotus weavers, and see the unique floating gardens. This tour is a fascinating insight local handmade traditions. Even the floating gardens require considerable manual labour to make. Local farmers collect weeds from the depths of the lake, then fashion them into gardens with the help of bamboo poles as anchors.

Day 8: Yangon
Catch a morning flight to Yangon. After settling into your hotel, head out to see the holiest shrine in the country, the Shwedagon Paya. This gilded pagoda is studded with nearly 5,000 diamonds and a number of gems, and is said to contain eight hairs of the Buddha. It’s a particularly impressive sight at sunset when the stupa begins to shine in the fading light of the day.

Questions & Answers

Question: Is there any reason this trip would not work for a reasonably fit senior?

This itinerary includes a fair amount of walking; sometimes barefoot as many of the religious sites require footwear to be removed. As long as you are comfortable with that level of activity then you should be good to go!

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.
