  • Day 01 :
    Arrive at Yangon International Airport and transfer to the hotel. After check-in, explore the colorful downtown Yangon, including Chaukhtatkyi, a colossal reclining Buddha; a scenic photo stop on beautiful Kandawgyi Lake and the Shwedagon Pagoda, one of the world’s most impressive temple complexes and a must see highlight.

    Day 02:
    Take a morning flight to Mandalay and after our arrival, transfer from the airport toward Mandalay, the last royal capital of the Burmese kingdom and a city rich in history and culture. On the way we stop at the ancient royal capital of Amarapura (a capital twice during the Konbaung period), and enjoy a walk on U Bein Bridge which stretches of 1.2 kilometers over Lake Taungtaman. Built around 1850, it is the oldest and longest teakwood span in the world. As we stroll in the vicinity of U Bein Bridge we can also see traditional silk and cotton weaving for which Mandalay is noted. After our lunch break we visit the nearby small island of Inwa, founded in 1364 and lasting nearly 400 years as a royal capital. Inwa is accessible by a short ferry transfer and there are no cars on the island. We travel by pony cart down tree-lined paths to see old palace walls; a watch tower now called ‘the leaning tower of Ava'; the MahaAungmyeBonzan, which is a beautiful brick-and-stucco monastery; and the elegant teakwood monastery BagayaKyaung, one of the few surviving teakwood monasteries in Myanmar and where young monks still study. Return from Inwa and transfer into Mandalay city. Check-in into the hotel and rest.

    Day 03 :
    Exploring Mandalay will include the gold leaf hammering; Mahamuni Pagoda; Shwenandaw Monastery, noted for its exquisite wood carvings; and Kuthodaw Pagoda, renowned as the world’s largest book for its stone slabs of the entire Buddhist scriptures. End the day with a sunset view from Mandalay Hill. Return to the Hotel and rest.

    Day 04 :
    Early morning departure from Mandalay to Bagan by modern ferry boat service. A pleasant way to spend the day as you travel down the fabled Ayeyarwady River. Arrive in Bagan by late afternoon, in time for evening sightseeing. You stay over night at Bagan.

    Day 05 :
    After breakfast we begin our visit to one of Asia’s most stunning archaeological destinations with its more than 2,000 pagodas doting the plains along the legendary Ayerwaddy River. See the bustling NyaungOo local market and then some of Bagan’s most distinctive pagodas including Shwezigon, a prototype of later Myanmar stupas and Wetkyi-in- Gubyaukgyi, a 13th century ‘cave temple with fine wall paintings. One of the most outstanding is the magnificent Ananda Pagoda, one of the most revered pagodas in all Myanmar and which contains four tall standing Buddhas within. Afternoon sightseeing highlights Sulamani Temple built by King Narapatisithu; Dhammayangyi Temple, a massive later period temple with the finest brickwork in Bagan, and Thatbyinnyu Temple which towers above other monuments of Bagan. We can also visit a Thanaka museum, dedicated to the tree bark and root of the Thanaka tree used in making a fragrant white colored paste which Myanmar women wear for skin beauty and protection from the sun. Visitors can learn how to make and apply the Thanaka paste. As the sun goes down we will be at one of the ideal temple top viewing sites selected by our guide. Return to your stay in Bagan and rest.

    Day 06 :
    Fly to Heho with a morning flight and after arrival at Heho airport we drive to magical Inle Lake. Situated 900 meters above sea level and 22 km long by 11 km wide, this large shallow lake is in an idyllic setting surrounded by mountains and is home to the Intha people, renowned for their floating gardens and the unique one-legged rowing style of their fishermen. We travel by small private boat on the lake, visiting the famous PaungDawOo pagoda, with its five famous Buddha images (four of which are carried in great ceremony around the lake during the PaungDawOo festival) and also nearby Inpawkhone Village where, in houses on stilts, we see traditional silk weaving with hand looms and the processing of lotus blossoms as they are made into beautiful fabric. After our lunch time break on the lake, visit traditional crafts-making such as blacksmithing, cheroot (local cigar) rolling, and boat making. Then enjoy a boat ride through the Kaylar village observing the many houses on stilts and the ways of life. We will see the floating gardens up close, then on to the ‘Ngaphae Chaung Monastery’ which is an interesting old traditional monastery on the lake. Stay over night at Inle lake.

    Day 07 :
    Continue Inle Lake sightseeing today with a memorable visit to Indain village with its idyllic 17th century pagodas. To reach Indain and the nearby village we will take a boat ride up a small scenic creek that runs into Inle lake Lake, passing villages and water buffalo bathing in the creek as we traverse small ‘dams’ built to slow the flow of water. A few Indain pagodas are being restored but most of them still lie in an abandoned ‘Indiana Jones’ type setting. To reach there, travel up a scenic creek in your boat. Later we will visit more local crafts on the lake. Overnight at Inle Lake.

    Day 08 :
    Fly to Yangon with morning flight. Upon arrival, transfer to your hotel to relax. In the afternoon we will visit Botahtaung Pagoda on the Yangon river, and then the sprawling Bogyoke (Scott’s) Market built in 1926 (Remarks : closes on Monday and public holidays.) It is filled with a large collection of local handicrafts and other items which make for an excellent last shopping spree. Overnight Yangon.
