Lunch

Upon arrival at Yangon International Airport, embark on an orientation tour of Yangon, which consists of: Sule Pagoda, a small pagoda with cultural and historical significance smack right in the centre of a busy commercial district; downtown Yangon, which is known for its fin-de-siècle architecture; Botahtaung Jetty, where you can get a glimpse of a labour worker’s life in Yangon; The Strand, a charming 3-storey Victorian hotel that offers a taste of the past with marble floors and rattan furnishings; a local market, which is bursting with colour, diversity, and energy and is the perfect pit stop if you want to experience a country’s pulse of life; and Chaukhtatgyi Buddha, which is known for housing one of the biggest and most graceful reclining Buddha statues in Southeast Asia. After lunch, hop on Yangon Circular Train to experience the true essence of local life as it passes the often overlooked districts. As the day ends, head to Yangon’s most famous landmark – Shwedagon Pagoda. The massive 99-meter high gold plated pagoda with the diamond studded spire is set on top of a small hill in downtown Yangon and is visible from much of the city. After dark, the pagoda is lit up by spotlights, creating a mystical atmosphere. Thereafter, transfer to the hotel. Free at leisure after check-in.     

Breakfast/Lunch

After breakfast, transfer to the airport for your flight to Bagan. It is home to the world’s densest concentration of Buddhist pagodas, stupas, and temples. Upon arrival, explore some of the best temples in the ancient city, namely: Ananda Temple, which is known as the best preserved, finest, largest, and most revered temples of Bagan; Dhammayangyi Temple, which is a massive, walled 12th century temple infamous for its bricked-up, mysterious inner passageways and cruel history; Sulamani, an elegant and large multi-storey structure from the late Bagan period; and Thatbyinnyu Temple, which is one of the highest monuments of Bagan. After that, head to Minnanthu Village, a popular traditional village with temples that are often completely deserted. A picnic mat is spread out and a picnic lunch will be served in this historical setting. As you end the day, travel back in time as you experience a traditional mode of transportation – horse-drawn cart – to admire amazing ancient architecture and understand the rich culture of Myanmar. Thereafter, transfer to the hotel. Free at leisure after check-in.     

 

Note: Each horse-drawn cart is shared by 3 persons.

Breakfast/Lunch

Bagan has more than just numerous pagodas, stupas, and temples; it has a fascinating countryside as well! This morning, hop on a 4WD that will lead you to the remote areas around Bagan, where you will be able to gain insight into village life and interact with charming locals. Proceed to 3 villages: Nyaung Gyi, where you can observe a blacksmith creating useful objects; Se Ywa, where you can see the production process of Burmese traditional sandals, cooking oil, and plum purifying; and Taung Kong, where you can watch farming or pottery making. Thereafter, start the evening with a boat journey on the tranquil Ayeyarwady River. You will be able to enjoy a view of the ancient city from a different angle; pass by some famous pagodas; and slowly drift along the water past fishermen and rickety fishing villages. Before the sun starts its slow descent behind the distant mountains, the boat will moor next to a sandbank amidst the river. Thereafter, transfer to the hotel.

 

Note: Please ensure that there is a life jacket on the boat.

The boat ride to and fro the sandbank takes 20 minutes each. However, the boat is unable to moor next to one if the river level is high.

Breakfast/Lunch

Today, transfer to the airport for your flight to Heho, the main gateway town to Inle Lake – an iconic Myanmar destination. A boat tour is a must-do as it will give you an up-close look at its floating gardens, the daily local life on the water, and the Intha fishermen propelling their boat via their unique technique of one-leg rowing. The tour consists of: cheroot workshop, where you can watch the manufacturing process of traditional Burmese-style cigar; and Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda, which enshrines five ancient Buddha images that have been transformed into amorphous blobs by the sheer volume of gold lead applied by devotees. Thereafter, transfer to the hotel. Free at leisure after check-in.     

 

Note: Each boat is shared by 4 persons. Please ensure that there is a life jacket on the boat.

                        

Breakfast/Lunch

After breakfast, hop aboard a boat and proceed to a local market – part of a five-day market that hopscotch between villages of the region – where different ethnic groups sell goods ranging from souvenirs to surplus produce, such as poultry and vegetables. Next, escape from the crowds and appreciate the lifestyle of the Intha people on this adventure – cycle (3 hours) on small tracks passing through beautiful landscapes and paddy field; take a boat through canals and floating gardens; and walk (2 hours)  on small tracks passing through bamboo forests, plantations, and remote communities. Along the way, there is an opportunity to have a chat over rice crackers and tea with the locals. Thereafter, transfer to the hotel by boat.

 

Note: Each boat is shared by 4 persons. Please ensure that there is a life jacket on the boat.

Breakfast

After breakfast, transfer to the airport for your flight to Yangon. Upon arrival at Yangon New Domestic Airport, walk for 5 minutes to Yangon International Airport for your flight home.
