Best of Burma - German Summary

Add to Shortlist

Days 1-2 Yangon

Formerly named Rangoon, Yangon is home to the holiest of all shrines at Shwedagon Paya, which glitters with gold and precious gems and is said to contain 8 hairs of the Buddha.

Days 3-5 Bagan

Dating back to the 11th and 12th centuries, the ancient religious centre of Bagan features countless brick and gilded temples which dot the skyline in many shapes and forms.

Day 6 Ayeyarwaddy Fluss

A cruise on the Ayeyarwaddy River offers a unique opportunity to witness the simple daily activities of life along the river as local villages and beautiful landscapes pass by.

Days 7-8 Mandalay

Once known as 'the golden city', Lord Buddha is said to have left his mark on Mandalay Hill in the form of a footprint, signalling wealth and prosperity for the land standing before it.

Days 9-10 Kalaw

As a former British hill station, Kalaw makes a welcome retreat from the heat of the lower-lying areas and the surrounding hills are the home to various ethnic minority groups.

Days 11-13 Inle See

The resort town of Nyuangshwe lies at the northern end of Inle Lake, which is the life-blood for many ethnic communities found in stilt houses along the lake's shallow fringes.

Days 14-15 Yangon

The country's biggest city and former capital, Yangon has many cultural delights and excellent sights, including religious monuments, museums, parks and the Bogyoke Market.
