Burma Golden Rock Short Break SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Be whisked away from the colonial capital of Yangon, travelling past rice paddies, through Burmese countryside and up a mountain to reach the Golden Rock - a huge boulder covered in gold leaf and carefully balanced on the edge of a cliff.
Drive through small villages, wander local markets and explore the glittering pagodas of Bago before heading back to the capital, Yangon.
