Yangon Arrival

Upon arrival, you will be met outside the baggage claim area by your guide who will escort you to a waiting vehicle for your transfer to downtown with a brief introduction en route. Your guide will be holding a welcome signboard with the ASIA TOUR ADVISOR LOGO & your name. During the drive your guide will provide an introduction to Yagon.

Located in the fertile delta region of central Burma (Myanmar), the former capital and waterfront city of Yangon with its crumbling British colonial mansions and ancient stupas, thriving restaurants and lively bars, is a melting pot of old and new. Home to over four million inhabitants, it's a sprawling city, the streets interspersed with parks and lakes, much of its allure stemming from the colourful street life. Marvel at the glittering Shwedagon Pagoda, wander the cobblestone streets of Bogyoke Market or simply watch the rickshaw drivers in their striped longyis (sarongs) peddle lazily through the streets as you sip on a cup of tea at a roadside tea stall.

This morning awake early for a sunrise flight over the plains of Bagan. Drift past ancient temples in the serene morning air and enjoy the views on your one hour flight. Continue exploring the temples on land with a picnic lunch at a quiet temple before setting off on a boat cruise along the Irrawaddy River for yet another perspective of the temples. Dine by candlelight this evening where your dinner is accompanied by a traditional dance performance.

The ancient city of Bagan was the capital of the Kingdom of Pagan from the 9th to 13th centuries and built over 10,000 Buddhist temples, pagodas and monasteries on the Bagan plains alone. Today around 2,200 of the original temples and pagodas remaining standing.

Bagan (Balloon Over Bagan)

In the early morning enjoy balloon over bagan and then visit a lacquer-ware factory where you can observe the entire process of creating this beautiful handicraft from start to finish. Overnight in Bagan

Bagan - Heho - Pindaya

An early morning flight will take you to Heho in the Shan State before driving to Pindaya - a peaceful town located on the banks of the Botoloke Lake. Enjoy the fresh air of the lake as well as the poetic sightseeing.

At an altitude of 880 metres (2,900 feet) the freshwater lake of Inle is not only one of the highest lakes in the country but is one of the biggest. The lake is home to the Intha people who have lived, worked and survived off the lake for generations. They live in wooden and woven bamboo stilt houses surrounded by floating gardens. Inle’s constant source of moisture and its climate permits the Inthas to grow crops throughout the year. The most distinctive part of the Intha culture is the unique way they row their small wooden boats using their legs.

Pindaya - Nyaung Shwe – Inle

In the morning, we will have a great chance to enjoy the whole view of Pindaya and its spectacular Shan hills from a colorful balloon. Then, we will discover the mystic Shwe U Min Cave with thousands of Buddha images. In the afternoon, having lunch before heading to the town of Nyaung Shwe. Upon arrival, you can hire a motorboat and travel to the hotel on the Inle Lake. On the way, you can see and experience the life of the lake with stilted villages, floating gardens and the unique leg-rower.

Then we will peek into the 2500-year-old Sule Pagoda located at the centre of Yangon. With the blending of Indian and Burmese style, this pagoda is one of the must-visit places of the capital.

In the afternoon, we will continue the city tour by walking around the Mahabandoola Park near the Sule Pagoda and having lunch. Afterward, discover another part of Yangon with the crowd and bustling atmosphere of the Bogyoke Market where you can find anything you want from foods, clothing to souvenir, jewelry or even a black market for money exchanging. Complete the day in the famous Shwedagon pagoda, also known as the Golden Pagoda - the must-see pagoda in Myanmar.

Marvelous Myanmar tour
Reviewed On: Oct 03, 2019MarekCzech Republic

I would highly recommend Asia Tour Advisor for everyone. The company is beyond professional and completely legit. My travel consultant Mr. Tran worked out a perfect tour that meets exactly what I want. 8 days in Myanmar were busy time of sightseeing, but totally worth every minute of it. Tran made our whole itinerary seamless and provided perfect guides and drivers in cities we visited. All of them were knowledgeable, accommodating, and fun to be with. The driver drove safety and ensure that we could get from point to point quickly to maximize our time. Thank you again to the great team at Asia Tour Advisor. I look forward to visiting Myanmar with you again.

Enjoyable experience
Reviewed On: Dec 20, 2018CameronUnited Kingdom

I thoroughly enjoyed my recent trip “A Glance of Myanmar”; it was much better than I had anticipated. The accommodation was great, and the food was delicious. And the best part: everything from transport, laundry, shopping etc was so much cheaper than anticipated. And the local people are so friendly and helpful, and the country cleaner and more ‘organised’ than expected. Altogether an enjoyable experience.

Very pleasant

I couldn’t help enjoying sceneries of temples from historical times. It was a very pleasant surprise experience and I would definitely book this trip again. As tourism is already being picksed up in Myanmar, one should go sooner than later.
