Whirlwind : Bagan & The Road to Mandalay

3 Nights & 4 Days/ Surreal Bagan – Mandalay – Pyin Oo Lwin / Gardens & Waterfall
Let’s Get Started!
If you’re keen to see Myanmar but don’t have much time and enjoy a fast pace, then our ‘Whirlwind’ designs were built for you. This great mix of historical grandeur, colorful culture and cool Hill Station relaxation, begins by snatching you from International & dropping you next door at Domestic for a short flight to Bagan.

“Wow! Are we really here on our long awaited Myanmar travel holiday?” Yes, you really are. And when you find yourselves atop the 1,000 year old Shwesandaw Pagoda watching the sun set the horizon ablaze and the 4,000 ancient temples turn to silhouette, you’ll know you have seen something beyond the reach of a scribe’s superlative, let alone a Myanmar travel agents!

Although the high road to Mandalay may suffer a few minutes of turbulence, it’s far preferable to the hours of potholes on the Bob Hope/Bing Crosby Highway. You will get a ‘best of’ experience that will include Amarapura and the achingly picturesque scene of Buddhist monks and nuns crossing U Bein’s Bridge at sunset. Your reward for riding the whirlwind is a refreshing visit to the former British Hill Station of Pyin Oo Lwin, where it’s still possible to run across a rare Burmese with blue eyes.
