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.

Yangon – Putao

This morning, fly to Putao in Myanmar's north where a short drive takes you to the Malikha Lodge. Perched on the Nam Lang River and overlooking the Himalayan Mountains, this elegant lodge will be your base for the next three nights. An afternoon ride on an elephant's back will allow you to enjoy the stunning scenery as you pass through rice fields and across small streams.


Today enjoy a full day excursion with your choice of hikes. Choose between routes passing through tribal villages with the backdrop of Himalayan views to greet you along the way before returning to the lodge for a well deserved massage at the lodge or a soak in your teak bathtub.


Spend today exploring the area around Malikha Lodge. With the Himalayan Mountains forming a backdrop, drift down the Malikha River on a gentle rafting trip to a remote gorge where a picnic lunch will be served. Take a short walk through neighboring Manchanbaw village to observe traditional lifestyles of the local people before returning to the lodge for dinner and drinks.


For the next two days enjoy one of two options: Trek through spectacular landscapes where you will integrate will local hill-tribe people and learn about their cultures and traditions before experiencing a night in a homestay. Alternatively set off on a two-day rafting adventure on the Nam Lang and Malikha Rivers, camping on the banks and awaking to the indigenous birdsongs. Or for those in search of relaxation, enjoy some time at the lodge with optional activities available.

Putao – Yangon

After a final leisurely breakfast at Malikha Lodge, check out and transfer to Putao Airport for the domestic flight to Yangon. There is time this afternoon for more sightseeing or shopping in the city.

Yagon Tour

Accompanied by your guide explore the sights of Yangon. Begin with a visit to the octagonal Sule Pagoda. Originally an Indian structure but now Burmese, it is thought to be over 2,000 years old and said to enshrine a hair of the Buddha. Stroll through downtown Yangon with its faded colonial buildings and leafy boulevards and visit the beautiful colonial style Post Office. Watch the locals going about their daily business as you pass Mahabandoola Park, named after General Maha Bandula who fought against the British in the First Anglo-Burmese War. The park includes the Independence Monument, an obelisk which commemorates Burmese independence gained from the British in 1948. Next visit Chaukhtatgyi and the Reclining Buddha which measures 70 metres (230 feet) in length.

In the afternoon you visit the National Museum, the principle museum of Burmese art, history and culture. The museum was founded in 1952 and houses an extensive collection of ancient artefacts, ornaments, art works, inscriptions and historic memorabilia, related to history, culture and the civilisation of the Burmese people.

Next stop is Bogyoke Market, one of the oldest markets in Yangon, with colonial architecture and cobbled streets. It offers Burmese handicrafts and gemstones but also has traditional Burmese and Chinese food stalls. After the market, head to the Indian Quarter for a very different view of the city. Here you will find Hindu Temples and street stalls selling Indian food. End the day with a visit to the breathtaking Shwedagon Pagoda, or Golden Pagoda, its stupa dominating the city’s skyline. This is one of the holiest places in Burma, and one reason why Burma is known as the "Land of Golden Pagodas". The pagoda itself is 99 metres (326 feet) high, studded with solid gold plates and decorated with diamonds and other precious jewels.

Great experience

Amazing Trip in my life! There is no word to describe my trip to Myanmar. When I was finding Myanmar vacation, and then we knew to ATA. After checking the tours, we chose 8 days in Putao for vacation. Mr. Tran was great, he replied to me so fast and gave me the detailed program. Everything was clear. During these days in Myanmar, we were so excited by the landscape as well as the temples in this country. From food, hotels, service,… everything was excellent. Surely, we will share our trip to my friend! Once again, thank ATA for making my day!
