This comprehensive tour will open your eyes to the diversity of the multifaceted nation that is Myanmar. In the former capital of Yangon, take in the pride and joy of the nation as you observe the daily rituals and ceremonies circulating around the 2,500 year old Shwedagon Pagoda. Venturing west, you will discover the remote Rakhine and Chin states, home to untouched temples and hill tribes, where many women still perform the tradition of tattooing their faces. No visit to Myanmar would be complete without a hot air balloon ride over the glowing golden temples of Bagan, followed by a stop in the traditional home of Myanmar’s Buddhist monks, in Mandalay. Continue to the Shan State for a few days of relaxation on Inle Lake, where local fishermen perform the spectacular feat of rowing with their legs! Return to Yangon to digest everything you’ve seen (maybe over a bowl tea leaf salad) on your final night.
