Thu 19 October – Mon 06 November 2017
Our Myanmar itinerary has been carefully designed by a specialist team supervised by our leader Dr Bob Hudson to encompass an impressive number of historical and cultural Burmese sites. Our program differs from conventional Myanmar itineraries and includes extended stays in Mrauk U, capital of the lost ancient kingdom of Arakan (now Rakhine State) and Bagan, rivalling Angkor Wat as Southeast Asia’s richest archaeological precinct. Experiences in Yangon, Inle Lake, Mandalay and a private cruise on the Ayeyarwady are also included. We cover a lot of ground, but we do so in a leisurely manner that will leave you free time for personal exploration, shopping or for visiting additional places of interest along the way. We journey through breathtakingly beautiful and infinitely varied landscapes as we explore the many strands of the country’s cultural tapestry. The Burmese remain a tribal and predominantly rural people and their relationship to the dynasties who have emerged and ruled them can only be understood by reference to the countryside.
Insular and intriguing, Burma is one of the oldest, richest cultures in the world, mysterious, beautiful and addictive. You are going to see incredible things, enjoy unforgettable travel experiences, and meet many warm, friendly people.
