Burma Teenage Adventure Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 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.

Set off on a boat journey to fully appreciate the spectacular landscape of the Yangon River. Stop by the village of Twante, renowned for its pottery, and have a go at making pots using techniques unchanged over centuries.

Day 3 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 4 Bagan

Visit the temple caves at this monastery to get an insight into local people’s spiritual beliefs. Visit the monastic primary school and have the chance to join in the local children’s lessons.

After a tour of the handicraft workshops, watch the puppets come to life in a traditional marionette show.
