In 2012, over one million tourists travelled to Burma in Southeast Asia. Visitor numbers are expected to increase by a further 30% this year and you can be one of them on this 15-day guided tour from Intrepid My Adventure Store starting at just $1599 per person.
A saving of up to $500 off the regular cost, you can experience this relatively untouched country with an experienced English speaking guide. The tour includes:
Starting in Rangoon (commonly referred to as Yangon), you will be led on a guided walking tour of the city, stopping at famous structures such as the Shwedagon Pagoda.
An overnight train will take you to Bagan where you will explore this once-great city by bicycle, visiting temples and Nyaung U market. From here you will take a public ferry to the old Burmese capital of Mandalay where a boat trip up the Irrawaddy River, to the village of Mingun, and a visit to the world’s largest unfinished pagoda await.
As the tour moves on to Inle Lake, you will enjoy a full-day lake tour, meeting local fishermen and exploring the unique monasteries and temples. Before the tour returns to Rangoon, you will spend a night near the Golden Rock and visit the renowned ‘reclining Buddha’ statue.
The last day in Rangoon is free for exploring or shopping.
Valid for departure on 23 June. For $200 more you can also depart on 14 April, 12 May, 9 June, 7, 21 July or 4, 18 August.
Book by 3 April.
