Day-to-Day Itinerary : Classic Family Myanmar

DAY 1 DEPART THE UK

Depart the UK.

DAYs 2 & 3 YANGON   Explore the city by train and on foot

After an evening settling into your hotel, you will spend a day exploring the city with your guide, the pace of tour will be tailored to suit your family and the children's ages.

A fun way to get a sense of local life is by travelling aboard the cities Circle Train. You could follow this up with a walk along the Yangon River, a rickshaw ride and a visit to a local market and end the day trying out some delicious Burmese food. 

DAYs 4 & 5 MOUNT POPA  Climbing and panoramas

Fly to Bagan and transfer by road to Mount Popa. The extinct volcanic peak of Mount Popa is one of Burma’s most revered pilgrimage sites. Located some 50 kilometres to the south-west of Bagan, the peak is believed to be home to some of the country’s most powerful spirits.  An climb to the top of the nearby volcanic plug of Popa Taung Kalat is really worth the effort, the ascent is good fun and the summit at 700 metre provides some spectacular panoramas of the surrounding countryside.

DAY 6 – 8 BAGAN  Temple fun

Its about two hours by road from Mount Popa to Bagan. During your stay, you’ll explore the pagodas of the extraordinary archaeological area on a guided bicycle tour (or by car if you prefer). You’ll take a horse and cart ride to a quiet spot for sunset and after dark you’ll explore one of the most fascinating temples when most tourists have left. 

There will also be time for a boat ride across the Irrawaddy to spend the morning with the friendly Buddhist monks and villagers of Kyun Thiri Island. You’ll pay a visit to the local monastery and spend the morning learning about the daily lives of this unique agricultural society, before heading back across the river to Bagan in time for lunch.

DAY 9 – 11 LAKE INLE  Canoeing, cycling and more

It's a short flight from Bagan to Heho. From here, you will transfer by road for one hour along a very scenic road. Stop en route to visit the Shwe Yan Pyay Monastery. When you arrive at the tranquil waters of Lake Inle you will board a private boat for the last stage of your journey by water, heading to your hotel.

Burma’s second largest lake provides the stunning scenic backdrop to a range of excursions. A stunning visual spectacle, your adventure is filled with numerous unmissable photo opportunities including the lake’s remarkable floating gardens and its famous ‘one-legged’ fishermen. There is chance to take a sunset canoe ride on the lake and visit Nyaung Shwe town for a genteel bike ride. Lying just to the north of Inle Lake, Nyaung Shwe sits amidst a relatively flat landscape that is ideal for exploring on two wheels.

day 12-15 ngapali  beach time

You’ll fly from Heho to Ngapali Beach, Burma’s beautiful Bay of Bengal-facing peninsula that is fringed with golden sandy beaches. Spend 4 days relaxing on the beach, splashing around in the pool and swimming in the azure ocean. If you fancy a bit of exploring, there are boat trips, watersports and small fishing villages to be discovered.

DAY 16 – YANGON  A final highlight

This morning you will transfer to the airport and fly to Yangon. Before leaving Myanmar you’ll visit one of its most famous landmarks, the Shwedagon Pagoda. The recognisable golden stupa dominates Yangon’s skyline and sunset is a great time to visit, the colours are wonderful and a visit is a brilliant way to mark the end of your holiday adventure.

DAY 17 – FLY HOME

Customer Feedback
My favourite [guide] was Aung in Mandalay. We only had him for one day, but he was determined to show us as much of Mandalay as possible in the time allotted, was obviously very proud of his city and country and was a pleasure to be with. He even took us to meet his uncle who was the Abbott of one of the many monasteries.
