Bagan

Sitting on the Ayeyarwady River is the 26 mile plain of Bagan, a city offering a stunning contrast of beautiful greenery adorned with thousands of temples and pagodas. This landscape presents a spectacular testament to the legacy of the early Buddhist religion, when building a temple was to earn merit in this religious belief.

With us you'll see the 13th century frescoes that adorn the corridors and walls of the Gubyaukgyi 'Cave' Temple, or visit the golden Shwezigon Pagoda that was built by the founder of the Pagan Empire, King Anawrahta. As well as discovering these models of ancient beauty, you can appreciate the craft behind Bagan's famous workshops with a Local Specialist, witnessing how lacquer ware is delicately produced.

Yangon

You can take the opportunity to try Myanmar's national dish Mohingar as well as a hint of the Colonial era at one of Yangon's latest Tea Houses. Explore what is said to be the spiritual heart of the city, the Shwedagon Pagoda, and take part in an oil lamp lighting ceremony before enjoying the sunset over the glistening pagoda.

Inle Lake

Travel from the waterside township of Nyaungshwe to scenic Inle Lake by longtail boat. Bustling canals lead the way as floating gardens and homes line the water. Local market sellers and merchants from surrounding hill tribes sell locally produced goods from their boats, from tools and carvings, to delicious fruit and vegetables.

Continue your journey around the lake as you pass the tall teaked houses of busy Ywama en route to Nyaung Ohak. Discover these striking carved ruins that date back as early as the 14th century. See the lake’s unique leg rowers, Intha fishermen who row their boats standing up with one leg wrapped around a single oar.
