Trip Highlights

•   Get acquainted with Myanmar on a tour of downtown Yangon. Truly an incredible city, Yangon is packed with beautiful pagodas, astounding giant Buddhas and countless historical sites

•   Touring the ancient city of Bagan by bicycle is a magical way to see the place. You'll have convenient and leisurely access to thousands of temples, stupas and pagodas

•   The boat trip to Mingun is scenic and pleasurable in itself, but viewing the world's largest uncracked bell when you reach your destination is an awesome experience

•   A full day of walking through the hills and villages of Kalaw may require a bit of energy, but it's one of the highlights of the trip. Get up-close and personal with the culture of rural Myanmar

•   Take a scenic long-tail boat ride along the waters of Inle Lake. This is a truly authentic Southeast Asian experience

Itinerary & Notes
Min Gala Ba! Welcome to Myanmar. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm today. You can arrive at any time during the day as there are no activities planned until this important meeting. Please look for a note in the hotel lobby or ask reception where it will take place. We'll be collecting insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so please ensure you bring these details to provide to your leader. If you have free time to explore before the meeting, we recommend stepping out onto the chaotic streets of Yangon. Once Myanmar’s capital, Yangon is still the country’s major city. See its beautiful skyline studded with the golden Shwedagon Paya temple. If you have the full day free, consider booking an Urban Adventure to see more of the city with an experienced local guide. Note: If you can't arrange a flight that will have you arrive at the hotel in time for the meeting, you may wish to arrive a day early so you're able to attend. We'll be happy to book additional accommodation for you (subject to availability).

The tour was very good. The guide was excellent. Unfortunately some members of the group thought they were on a 19 to 30 holiday and their only query was on when the next beer was coming (without exaggeration). I wonder how Intrepid had advertised the trip. The train from Yangon to Bagan was horrendous but an experience. I wonder whether we could have experienced it for a shorter time and then got a bus? It is surely an accident waiting to happen and I don't think we were fully prepared for it -but I'm glad I did it.
