Your Example Itinerary

Day 1

Fly from the UK to Yangon.

Days 2-3

Yangon

Arrive in multicultural Yangon, a melting pot of British, Burmese, Chinese and Indian influences. To get your bearings, you could wander down to the covered Bogyoke Market and test out your bargaining skills or take a look at the grand architecture of the Strand Hotel. Explore the sights and sounds of the city with your guide, including the Shwedagon Pagoda, a brilliant golden edifice visible from all over Yangon. The colour changes depending on the light – sunset is a lovely time, as the stupa glows warm oranges and reds.

Climb to the top of the Shwesandaw Pagoda and watch the sunset over beautiful Bagan, a collection of around 2,200 temples dotted across the landscape. If you are feeling energetic, climb the 777 steps to the top of Mount Popa, an extinct volcano with a shrine at the top. For a truly memorable and romantic way to explore the delights of Bagan, why not take to the skies on a hot air balloon ride (at extra cost, must be booked well in advance).
