The Best of Burma in Nine Days

Join Mekong Viet Travel on a nine-day journey through the stunning country of Myanmar. Far off the tourist radar, this country is packed with amazing sights, all there to be discovered and explored with the help of our local guides. If it's an unforgettable holiday you’re after, Myanmar is the perfect place to find it.

 

 Begin your journey in Yangon, formerly Rangoon, a city where modernity and tradition meld. Chat with locals in teashops, and visit the massive reclining Buddha while getting an introduction to Burmese food. Follow this with a trip to Bagan, one of the most astounding sights in Asia, where thousands of shrines to the Buddha stud the dry plains, overwhelming the first-time visitor. While here, take a day trip up Mt. Popa, where locals worship animist spirits at golden shrines perched atop a volcanic peak.

 

 Next, fly to Mandalay, where ancient capital cities, massive temples and romantic ruins illustrate the colorful and convoluted history of Myanmar. After that, it’s off to beautiful Inle Lake, home to floating farms and homes, and surrounded by a ring of craggy mountains. Immerse yourself in the country’s natural beauty, while also making time to see the wealth of ancient stupas in nearby Alaung Sitthou. Return to Yangon for last-minute explorations of this chaotic but beautiful city before your departure.

 

 This tour can be customized to suit your preferences, and we’d be delighted to create a Myanmar tour just for you. Mekong Viet Travel is one of the few companies that knows Myanmar inside and out, and we look forward to bringing you here!
