Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Yangon

On arrival into Yangon, you will be transferred to your hotel, with the rest of the day at leisure. Enjoy Burma’s largest city, which despite its size has a provincial feel compared with other cities in Asia.

Hotel: Chatrium Royal Lake, Yangon
Meals: Lunch and dinner

Day 2 - Bagan

After breakfast head for the airport and enjoy a short flight to Bagan. Upon arrival you’ll be greeted by your local guide, to explore the amazing temples that dot the area. Sightseeing today will include Gubyaukgyi with its excellent stucco carvings, the impressive Htilominlo Pahto and Ananda Pahto which is one the best preserved temples in the archeological zone.

Bagan is not only famous for its temples and pagodas but also for its artistic handicrafts and lacquerware. There will be an opportunity to visit a local workshop where the process of making these interesting items can be seen.

The only way to truly appreciate the scale of the site is from a viewpoint where the you can see thousands of temples stretch across the plain (the guide will choose the best location according to the season). The early evening presents the perfect opportunity to watch the sunset and take in the enormity of the surrounding area.

This afternoon there is another chance to re-visit the temples, this time by Horse Cart which affords the opportunity to explore some of the lesser visited areas which cannot be reached by more conventional modes of transport.
