Day 1 Depart USA

You board your aircraft for the overnight flight to Myanmar (Burma) and its capital, Yangon (Rangoon).

Day 2 En Route

During your flight you will cross the International Date Line technically "losing" a day but you will regain it on your return flight.

Day 3 Arrival in Rangoon

Upon arrival in Yangon you will be met by your guide who will facilitate the collection of luggage and the transfer to your car which will take you to your landmark hotel. Yangon, formerly known as Rangoon, was founded by King Alaungpaya on the site of a small town called Dagon when he conquered lower Myanmar in 1755. He changed its name to Yangon, which means "end of Strife" but was anglicized as Rangoon by the British when they annexed Myanmar in 1885. It is still a relatively quiet and charming city. Moreover its colonial and spiritual heritage makes it one of the most fascinating and authentic capitals of South East Asia. In the afternoon you will be taken on a private city tour including the National Museum, the 210 foot reclining Buddha at Kyaukhtatgyi Pagoda and, at the end of the day, Myanmar's holiest monument, the Shwedagon Pagoda with its golden stupa covered with 60 tons of pure gold leaf. Enjoy a quiet dinner in your hotel's renowned restaurant.

Day 4 The Journey to the Golden Rock

After breakfast you will meet your guide and driver and head north-east for about 125 miles to the town of Kyaikhtiyo where you board an all-terrain vehicle which takes you part of the way towards the Golden Rock. Then you're up-hill trekking to Golden Rock begins as you enjoy the scenic views along the trekking path. Upon arrival you check in to your hotel which is comfortable and hospitable but not luxurious. It is situated at 3,600 feet. After relaxing for a bit you are ready to walk up to the Golden rock. It is a steep walk and if you feel it to be too much, chair porters can get you up there and provide a unique experience. Golden Rock is one of Myanmar's main pilgrimage sites. It is actually a huge boulder covered in gold and delicately balanced on the edge of a cliff. The pagoda at the Golden Rock is said to hold a hair of the Buddha. Tonight enjoy dinner at 3,600 feet.

Day 5 Bago and the Return to Yangon

After breakfast you retrace your route back to your car where your driver is waiting. You head back for Yangon. Your first stop will be in Bago, an ancient capitol dating back to the 6th Century. You will visit the 160 foot long reclining Buddha at Shwethalyaung and the Mon style Shwemawdaw Pagoda one of the most venerated in Myanmar and with a spire standing close to 350 feet. After lunch you will proceed to Yangon stopping near Htaukkyan to pay your respects at the Allied war Cemetery, the final resting place of over 27,000 allied soldiers. Arriving back in Yangon, you have a chance to refresh and relax before enjoying dinner at Le Planteur Restaurant, one of the city's best.

Day 6 Heho and Inle Lake

Your guide and driver will be waiting to take you to the airport for the flight to Heho. Upon arrival you are met by your guide and taken on a scenic drive to the village of Nyaung Shwe, the gateway to Inle Lake. At the village you board a private motorboat to head out on to Inle Lake one of Burma's most spectacular sites. You pass villages built on stilts over the lake, inhabited by Intha people, leg-rowing fishermen of the lake and see their floating gardens built up from strips of water hyacinth and mud and anchored to the bottom with bamboo poles. You will stop for a visit to the Nga Hpe Chaung Monastery and a cheroot factory where the typical Burmese cigars are made by hand. Dinner is at your hotel this evening.

Day 7 A Day with the Lake People

After breakfast you will head for one of the towns around the lake to participate in market day when local inhabitants and surrounding hill tribes congregate to buy, sell and socialize. The market location rotates between towns on a five day rotation so your town will depend on the day you are here. After the market visit your boat will take you down a small canal leading to the Paoh village of In Dein. After a walk around the village, passing a local school, you will climb a covered stairway to the scenic Alaung Sitthou area where ancient stupas emerge from the jungle vegetation. This area also offers magnificent vistas of the lake. Return to the hotel and enjoy a relaxing spa treatment to sooth your mind and body. Following your treatment and preceding dinner you will attend a wine tasting in the Resorts wine cellar.

Day 8 Mandalay…Where the Flying Fishes Play

Your guide and driver will be waiting to take you to the airport for the flight to Mandalay, made famous by the poem by Rudyard Kipling and the song derived from it. But Mandalay has also long been known as a center of skilled craftsmanship and, in former times, even supplied the Royal Court. Upon arrival you are met by your guide and taken to your hotel. After a chance to rest you have an orientation tour of the city with your guide culminating with the sunset view from Mandalay Hill.

Day 9 Amarapura, Ava and Sagaing

After breakfast you set off on a full day excursion to some of Burma's former capitols. The first stop will be Amarapura where you have the opportunity to attend the daily meal of over a thousand monks at Mahagandayon, Burma's largest monastery before visiting a silk weaving workshop. You then continue to Ava, the capitol from the 1th through the 18th Century where you have the chance to visit the old wooden Bagaya Monastery and the remains of the Royal Palace in your own horse drawn carriage. After lunch at a local restaurant, you cross the bridge over the Irrawaddy River and continue on to Sagaing. Covered with 600 white-painted pagodas and monasteries, Sagaing hill is widely regarded as the religious center of Myanmar and is home to 3,000 monks and 100 meditation centers. After your visit you return to Mandalay and end the day enjoying the sunset over the 200 year old U Bein Bridge constructed entirely from teak. This evening enjoy dinner at Ko's Kitchen.

Day 10 Mingun and the Mahamuni Pagoda

This morning you will be taken to the jetty where you board a private boat for the trip to Mingun on the Irrawaddy River. Mingun is famous for its huge, unfinished pagoda and the equally famous Mingun Bell considered to be the world's largest uncracked bell. While in Mingun you will also have the chance to visit the beautiful white Hsinbyume Pagoda before returning to Mandalay. In the afternoon you will visit Mahamuni Pagoda, famous for its venerable statue of Buddha covered with gold leaf and have the opportunity to tour nearby workshops featuring crafts such as woodcarving, marble masonry, Kalaga tapestry and gold-leaf making. This evening dine out at "A little Bit of Mandalay" Restaurant.

Day 11 Monywa and the Caves of Po Win Taung

In the morning you will start out on the drive to Monywa, a typical Burmese town on the banks of the Chindwin River. On the way, you will stop to visit Thanboddhay Pagoda, where more than 500,000 Buddha images cover every wall and archway of this huge Buddhist temple. Arriving in Monywa you have lunch at a local restaurant. In the afternoon you cross the Chindwin River by ferry and proceed to Po Win Taung by 4wd jeep. This complex consists of 947 sandstone caves dug out of the hills and contains what is considered by archaeologists to be the richest collection of mural paintings and Buddha statues in South East Asia. Close by is Shwe Ba Taung where monasteries and temples are carved out of rocky narrow cliffs.

Day 12 Burmese Country Life

After breakfast you will start out along the little travelled eastern bank of the river passing traditional villages where farmers climb the palm trees to extract the juice from which they produce palm tree sugar. Arriving in the quaint town of Pakkoku you have the chance to admire its fine handiwork tradition including woven blankets, papier-mache toys and the traditional sandals. Take a rickshaw ride through town to complete your visit. After lunch you board a boat for the two hour cruise downriver to Bagan. You are transferred to your hotel where you have a chance to relax before dinner.

Day 13 Exploring Bagan

You will start your day by visiting Ananda Okkyaung, an architectural masterpiece and one of the few surviving brick monasteries from the early Bagan period. At the monastery you will board a horse drawn carriage for a leisurely tour among the many temples of this city culminating in a visit to Thatbyinnyu, the highest temple in Bagan and the colossal Dhammayangyi Temple celebrated for its remarkable brickwork and Sulamani. In the afternoon you have the opportunity to observe skilled craftsmen as they demonstrate to you the ancient technique of lacquering. As dusk approaches, you are taken to Nyaung U Village where you board a boat for a slow sunset cruise down the Irrawaddy River. This evening enjoy dinner and a puppet show at Nandar Restaurant.

Day 14 Bagan and the Return to Yangon

After breakfast you will visit the colorful Nyaung Oo Market before proceeding to the village of Myinkaba. Walking through the village along with your guide gives you the chance to learn, in one of the local family workshops, about the production process for lacquer ware, one of the best-known Myanmar handicrafts. In the afternoon you visit the village of Minnanthu, not often visited but offering unusual architecture, before heading to the airport for the flight to Yangon. Upon arrival in Yangon you are driven to your hotel where dinner awaits.

Day 15 Colonial Rangoon and the Return to Bangkok

In the morning your guide will take you on a walking tour of Yangon, a walk filled with faded colonial atmosphere including buses still in use after sixty years of service. The charm of the city will be evident as you view the examples of Victorian architecture and the boulevards shaded by mature trees. Downtown you see bustling markets, tea shops, and trishaws. You have a farewell lunch at Monsoon Restaurant and then some free time for exploring Bogyoke Market, formerly known as Scott Market before transferring to Mingaladon airport for your flight to Bangkok. Upon arrival in Bangkok you are escorted by our representative to a hotel at the airport where you have dinner and spend the night.

Day 16 Return to USA

Since you are already at the airport, you have the chance to have a leisurely breakfast before meeting your guide who will assist you with the transfer to the airport and check-in. You regain the day lost previously arriving back the same afternoon.
