Itinerary for Customers

Day 1 : Yangon (-/-/-)
Upon arrival at Yangon airport, you will be welcomed by your guide and transferred to your hotel (hotel check in time is 1400 hrs). Your journey begins with a tour through Yangon. Formerly known as Rangoon, it is a relatively quiet and charming city. Its impressive colonial and spiritual heritage makes it one of the most fascinating cities in Southeast Asia. Visit the magnificent Buddha at Chauk Htat Gyi; take a photo shop at Karaweik Barge, a replica of the royal barge, with the vast lake and views of Shwedagon in the background. From here, continue to Shwedagon Pagoda, the most revered Buddha temple in Myanmar. Both lunch and dinner are your own account.

Overnight in Yangon

Day 2: Yangon – Bagan (B/-/-)
After breakfast, transfer to the airport for a flight to Bagan (Nyang U). Upon Arrival, drive to Nyaung U and stroll through the colourful local market. Then sightseeing includes Nyaung U Market, Shwezigon Pagoda - the prototype for later Myanmar pagodas built by King Anawrahta, Ananda Temple – King Kyansittha’s masterpiece and crowning achievement of the early style temple of architecture and Htilominlo Temple – the largest temple.

In the afternoon, visit to Lacquer-ware making home cottage, Manuha Temple, Myinkaba Gubyaukgyi Temple – known for its wall paintings depicting scenes from the Jakatas and Dhamanyangyi Temple.

Continue to an elevated viewpoint to watch an unforgettable sunset over the plains before returning to the hotel.

Overnight in Bagan

Day 3: Bagan – Mandalay (B/-/-)
After breakfast, transfer to the airport for a flight to Mandalay. Upon arrival, transfer to hotel and experience the sights and sounds of Mandalay including the most revered religious monument in Myanmar, Mahamuni Pagoda. This pagoda is home to one of the country’s most revered Buddha images which, over the years, have been covered with gold leaf giving it an almost ‘lumpy’ texture. Mandalay is well known for its skilled craftsmen and as your tour traditional workshops, you will learn more about the city’s cottage industries. Observe the production of wood carving, kalaga tapestries, and gold-leaf where the techniques remained unchanged from those used centuries ago to craft items for the Royal Court.

Next visit to Kuthodaw Pagoda, whose 729 marble stone slabs of Buddhist scriptures have earned it the title ‘World’s Biggest Book’. Walk onwards to Shwenandaw Monastery, the only remaining building from the 19th century Royal Palace. This grand teak building is known for its exquisite woodcarving.

Head to the top of Mandalay Hill as the sun begins to set to enjoy magnificent views of the city and Irrawaddy River.

Later, take a walk along Yangon River to see the busy harbour area, where ferries leave for Pathein in the Delta along the Ayeyeardday River and Botahtaung Pagoda, said to contain Buddha relics. Both lunch and dinner are own account.
