Your Example Itinerary
Fly from the UK to 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.
Reclining Buddha of Chauk Htat Gyi Pagoda
5* Sule Shangri-La Hotel
Fly to Bagan and admire the numerous temples that dot the landscape, before sailing to the Tant Kyi Taung Pagoda on the Irrawaddy River. 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).
Tant Kyi Taung Pagoda
5* Bagan Lodge
Cruise Ayeyarwady River to diverse Mandalay, with its many churches and temples. This is the slow and scenic route, which can take up to 12 hours, sailing past the traditional fishing villages as you go. Once in Mandalay, learn more about the ruins of the city of Amarapura, call in at the former Shan capital Sagaing and view its many stupas, then cool down with a trip up to the hill station at Pyin Oo Lwin. Here, the botanical gardens the vegetable markets and the picturesque views from the hilltop pagoda of Naung Kan Gyi Paya are well worth the journey.
Full day trip to Pyin Oo Lwin
5* Mandalay Hill Resort
Board your flight to Inle Lake, a tranquil freshwater lake with plenty of traditional fishing villages and activity going on. Explore the floating gardens by boat, looking out the colourful flowers and for passing Intha fishermen who use an ingenious method of rowing that involves holding the oar with one leg, allowing them to stand and row at the same time. Look out for local birdlife too, including egrets, cranes, ducks and storks. You’ll also have the chance to see local craftsmen at work, making Buddhas from dried flowers and rolling Burmese cigars.
Nga Pe Kyaung Monastery
5* Aureum Inle
Return to Yangon and depart for the UK.
