DAY 4-6 - BAGAN  magical temples, sunsets and panoramas

A short flight takes you to Bagan where you will spend three days. During your time here you will explore the extraordinary sights with your guide in signature Experience Travel Group style. Your tour of the famous temple complex and beyond will include magical sunsets, fantastic panoramas and will be timed to ensure you enjoy many quiet moments away from the usual crowds.

Day 7-9 - Mandalay  ancient capitals  and colourful markets

It’s a short flight to Mandalay, a city buzzing with life and colour. (As an alternative to flying you could travel by boat – speak to your travel expert for details).

Your first day is free to relax and enjoy your hotel before spending two days exploring the temples, the Irrawaddy river and Ava - one of the four deserted ancient capitals that fringe the city. You’ll experience colourful markets, Buddhist heritage, intricate carvings and sunrise at the famous U Bein Bridge, taking advantage of various modes of transport as you travel around with your guide.

DAY 10-12 - Lake Inle  Exploring life on the lake

Another short flight takes you to Heho, the gateway for Lake Inle and beyond. En route from the airport to your lakeside accommodation you’ll visit a 19th century wooden monastery before boarding a private boat towards your hotel.

Inle has a beautiful natural setting with a wide range of wildlife and it’s also a great hub for local culture. During your stay you’ll spend a day exploring the lake and its tributaries by boat, taking in the famous rotating markets and some lesser known sites. Your visit to Inle will also incorporate a visit to a local wine estate to try some Burmese wine in a beautiful setting.

An alternative way to see Lake Inle is from the vantage point of a hot air balloon. Speak to your Myanmar travel expert to find out how this can be incorporated into your holiday. 

DAY 13 - Yangon  The sun sets

DAY 14 - Fly home (or head to the beach!)

Today you’ll depart Myanmar on your flight back to the UK. If you’d like to extend your stay, perhaps to incorporate some time at the beach, then please speak to our Myanmar experts who will be happy to craft an itinerary completely tailored to you.
