What was the world like in a simpler time? The time described by such legendary travelers as Marco Polo, Rudyard Kipling and George Orwell. The answer lies throughout Burma. Its attractions tell stories: tales of royalty & colonialism; Buddhism & ancient art forms; village life & traditional values; and fabled places like Rangoon & Mandalay. Some are exotic or serene. Others are intriguing or nostalgic. All are magical. All are unforgettable. All will leave you jaw in hand, speechless and amazed that such a gracious place still exists. This magical country promises wonderful cultural experiences, and delivers even more than it promises.

Tour Highlights

* resplendent, 2500 year old, golden Shwedagon Pagoda

* sunrise over 11th century Bagan temples from a hot air balloon (optional)

* Inle Lake’s charms and leg rowers in a magical world afloat

* timeless scenes from daily life in the pristine Burmese countryside

* hospitality & spirituality of the world's friendliest, most gracious people

* breakfast in Burma  

 

Why the “Breakfast in Burma” theme? Because it’s our favorite thing in the world. What makes it so special? Perhaps the extraordinary settings, early morning dew, aroma of brewing coffee, attentive but unobtrusive hospitality, and organic foods, freshly harvested and eaten so close to the source. Or sunrise casting promise on a new day of discovery. Or perhaps it’s simply the intangible feeling of waking up in Burma. It can’t be described. It must be experienced.
