Myanmar is a country with a deep and fascinating culture. Beginning and ending in Yangon, discover the spiritual heavyweight of Shwedagon Pagoda, journey through Bagan and its thousands of pagodas, cross the longest teak bridge in the world near Mandalay and enjoy life lakeside at Inle Lake, where floating markets, leg-rowing fishermen and ethnic minorities make for a unique destination. Mix in delicious food, breathtaking landscapes and people both curious and welcoming, and you have a place that will keep you coming back for more.
Get acquainted with Myanmar on a tour of downtown Yangon. Truly an incredible city, Yangon is packed with beautiful pagodas, astounding giant Buddhas and countless historical sites
Touring the ancient city of Bagan by bicycle is a magical way to see the place. You'll have convenient and leisurely access to thousands of temples, stupas and pagodas
A full day of walking through the hills and villages of Kalaw may require a bit of energy, but it's one of the highlights of the trip. Get up-close and personal with the culture of rural Myanmar
Get lost in the floating markets of Inle Lake and encounter the many varied tribal people who call this place home. This is a truly authentic Southeast Asian experience
This trip involves a full day of walking in the hills and villages around Kalaw. While not a trek, the day still requires travellers to have a decent level of fitness.
Myanmar is a big country so you'll spend a lot of time travelling from place to place. Expect some long drives on this trip, and a full day cruising the Ayeyarwady River from Bagan to Inle. This is a great opportunity to get to know your fellow travellers.
This trip gives you plenty of free time in each location, perfect for the traveller who appreciates a bit of independence.
Myanmar is a hot and humid country. Even wintertime is pleasantly warm by European standards, so take this into account if travelling here in summer.

Visit Myanmar now! See Myanmar before it gets to touristy. Wonderful to see the farms still using ox to plow the field, haul there vegetable in wooden wagons, herding there cows on foot. You are traveling back in time when visiting Myanmar but it won't be this way for long as you can see the new generation wearing blue jeans compared to the traditional longi that the men and women wear. This is an active, fun adventure! Must do!!
