This two-week tailor-made tour of Myanmar is a cultural odyssey that will introduce you to the country’s unique history, get you closer to some of its most fascinating ancient monuments and introduce you to warmly welcoming local communities.
Starting in Mandalay, the cultural heart of Myanmar, and finishing in bustling Yangon, you’ll have the chance to travel along the historic Burma Road to the former British hill station of Pyin Oo Lwin (Maymyo), travel by train over the spectacular Gokteik Bridge, watch the iconic leg-rowers plying their trade among the floating villages on Inle Lake, and take in the spectacular sight of Bagan’s 2000 pagodas and stupas.
However, holiday is not just about sitting back and enjoying the view. You’ll have the chance to get hands-on during cooking class with a local Intha family on the shores of Inle Lake. After cooking up a veritable feast with local ingredients and recipes passed down through generations, you’ll all sit down together in traditional Burmese style to share stories and enjoy the fruits of your labour.
Finally, you’ll finish your trip with some well-earned rest on beautiful Ngwe Saung beach, a spectacular slice of sand a world away from hustle of South East Asia’s busy coastal resorts.
This itinerary can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your specific interests and requirements.
