The Essentials of Myanmar
This trip to Myanmar allows you to experience an initial discovery
of one of the most beautiful countries in Asia in just ten days. Start off in Yangon, where the city reveals its colonial architecture and you visit the incredible Shwedagon Pagoda
. In Mandalay, you walk along the 1.2 kilometre-long wooden U Bein Bridge
, visit a Buddhist monastery and cross the former royal capital in a carriage. Then, a day cruise along the Irrawaddy
takes you to the incredible archaeological site of Bagan
where you ride an electric scooter between thousands of ancient pagodas, palaces and temples. You then explore the thousand Buddhas caves of Pindaya
before ending up at Inle Lake
with its Intha fishermen, stilt houses, floating vegetable gardens and ethnic minorities.
Myanmar is a remarkable country that has retained much of its authenticity, having been closed to tourism for many years. You will discover an essentially rural country that is bursting with cultural richness
, marked by Buddhist spirituality
found in the thousands of pagodas and monasteries that you will pass throughout your journey. Inhabited by a mosaic of ethnic groups, this trip to Burma also allows you to meet the inhabitants and observe their traditions which are still rooted in daily life and in the highly developed local crafts.
