Upon arrival at Yangon International Airport, you will be welcomed by our guide and transfer to your hotel. Yangon city tour starts with the National Museum, a five-story exhibit that houses an extensive collection of ancient artifacts, ornaments, works of art, and historic memorabilia, making it perhaps the largest single collection of Burmese history. Then off to Bogyoke Market, Yangon’s largest open marketplace replete with gems, jewelry, textiles, artwork, and more. The last stop is the Shwedagon Pagoda, Myanmar’s most identifiable landmark and most important religious monument. The 100-metre-high gilded stupa, towering high over a buzzing city, certainly yields an unforgettable visiting experience. Lunch is at your own account and dinner will be served at local restaurant. Overnight stay in Yangon.
After breakfast, you’ll set off to Bago in the morning. Formerly an ancient capital known as Hanthawaddy, Bago hosts several national landmarks with important historic and religious significance. On the way to Bago, visit the Allied War Cemetary in Htaukkyan. Opened in 1951, the cemetery is maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and is one of the most visited and highest rated war sites in Asia. Then proceed to the Kyatkatwine Teaching Monastery, one of Myanmar’s largest monastic schools for young novices. From there we head east to Mon State and the famed Golden Rock. From Kimpun Base Camp just outside of Kyaiktiyo township in Mon state, a truck will take you 45 minutes to top of the hill where the pagoda is built on the top of a gilded rock leaning off the side of a cliff. According to legend, the rock and pagoda were placed here atop a strand of the Buddha's hair over two thousand years ago by a celestial king. While there's much debate around historical accuracy, the panoramic views from the Rock are stunning. Lunch at local restaurant and dinner is at your own account. Overnight stay in Kyaikhtiyo.
After breakfast, you will return to Yangon to catch your evening domestic flight to Mandalay. Upon arrival to Mandalay, transfer to your hotel directly. Lunch is at your own account and dinner will be served at local restaurant. Overnight stay in Mandalay.
After breakfast at hotel, your excursion starts with the Mahamuni Pagoda, a Buddhist temple and major pilgrimage site. The golden Mahamuni Buddha image inside is highly venerated by millions of Burmese people. Next is the Shwe In Bin Monastery, an intricate and ornate teak wood monastery constructed in 1895 by Chinese merchants. Although referred to as the Golden Monastery, the Shwenandaw Kyaung is made entirely out of teak wood. Built in 1878 by King Thibaw, the former royal palace captures the essence of traditional Burmese architecture and is the only remaining major original structure of the Mandalay Royal Palace today. After lunch, we’re off to the Kuthodaw Pagoda, the 57-metre high stupa perhaps best well known for containing the world’s largest book. Each of the 1,460 pages is over 3 feet tall and housed in one of 729 incredible white stupas. As the day comes to a close, we’ll scoot off to Mandalay Hill for a stunning sunset and the sprawling vistas of the region. Dinner is at your own account. Overnight stay in Mandalay.
Breakfast at your hotel. This excursion travels back in time to three of Myanmar's most prominent and culturally significant ancient capitals: Amarapura, Inwa and Sagaing. Starting in Myanmar’s penultimate royal capital, Amarapura, a name that ironically translates to, “City of Immortality.” The first stop is the Mahagandayon Monastery, Myanmar’s largest monastic university and home to more than a thousand young monks. Then to the iconic U Bein Bridge. Built in 1782 and spanning 1.2 kilometers across Taungthaman Lake, it’s said to be the longest teakwood bridge in the world. We’ll have a stroll and snap some pictures before heading to Bagaya Monastery. The afternoon begins with a boat ride across the Irrawaddy River to Inwa. When we arrive, a horse-drawn carriage to Nanmyint Watch Tower, one of the final remnants of an ancient palace. Then to the Maha Aungmye Bonzan Monastery, an incredible brick example of traditional Burmese architecture built in the early 19th century during the Konbaung Dynasty. After, to the other Bagaya Monastery, a spectacular teak building built in the 18th century. The day ends atop Sagaing Hill, where we’ll take in a gorgeous sunset before heading back to Mandalay. Lunch will be served at local restaurant and dinner is at your own account. Overnight stay in Mandalay.
