Our Escape to the Golden Land tour offers an electric blend of the best that Myanmar has to offer. It is perfectly balanced with culture, monuments & architecture, people and nature. This is the best tour for first time visitors to Myanmar as it covers all important highlights of this wonderful country.

Your tour starts in historical Yangon or Rangoon, which contains the largest number of colonial buildings in Southeast Asia. After an unforgettable sunset at Shwedagon Pagoda you head north to the capital of Old Burma Mandalay. From this ethnically diverse city you visit Mandalay Hill, the largest book in the world, the longest Teak Bridge in the world and sail on the Ayeyarwaddy for Mingun.

Later through rural country you arrive at Monywa to admire the 500.000 Buddha images at the Mohnyin Thanboddhay Pagoda and explore the sandstone caves of Po Win Taung, one the most important Buddhist sites in Southeast Asia. Through Tanaka plantations you rejoin the mighty Ayeyarwaddy and sail down to magical Bagan. From here you explore the most important temples and visit the home of Nats at Mt Popa.

Change of air and altitude by Inle Lake, explore the shores of this picturesque lake by long-boats, visit old forgotten by the time pagodas and quaint markets, meet the Lake’s inhabitants with their intriguing ways in their water world existence, visit the remarkable caves of Pindaya before returning to Yangon for a final tête-à-tête with an old disappearing world.
