5 Days/ Yangon – Surreal Bagan – Magical Lake Inle
Let’s Get Started!

Burma travel is made to order, even for short trips. If you only have five days to spend, the spectacular antiquity of Bagan and the enveloping tranquility of Inle lake is a great way to do it! You begin in Yangon, where you’ll have a chance to get reasonably acquainted with this fascinating city. The highlight for many is the magnificent 2,500 year old Shwedagon Pagoda, but for many others it’s the people, who are without a doubt the friendliest of any major city anywhere.

The vast temple-scape of Bagan is perhaps the most spectacular archeological site in Asia. It can seem surreal, most especially in the morning mists standing atop one of the temples, or soaring high in a hot air balloon. You can reach the temples on foot, bicycle or by horse-drawn carriage. Colorful village markets are plenty, and Bagan is famous its long lineage of laquerware artisans.

Almost as famous as the antiquity of Bagan is the tranquility of Lake Inlay. Stay by the lake or on the lake in a “floating” hotel. Highlights include the mysterious temple ruins of Nyaung Oak, floating gardens and pagodas, Intha fishermen, long-necked Padaung women, fantastic silver-works, lotus silk shawls, & the overall serenity the place.
