Inspire your imagination – in a land where gold Buddhas compete with a Golden Rock. Where ancient temples and pagodas contrast with colonial architecture. Where the cuisine and culture has many different nationalities at its roots
A Myanmar vacation is different. Shaped by countless invaders in the past, it now shares its riches with comparatively few overseas visitors.
But ask Rob Kent – one of our experts in all things Burmese – to build you a tailor-made itinerary and you can expect a rather special luxury vacation.
You could be rising, for example, with the sun, into the cool clear air as a hot air balloon lifts you over the Temples of Bagan. You could visit the Shwedagon pagoda at Yangon. Or find yourself amongst stilted houses, markets and traditional craft workshops on the banks of Inle Lake. Or in rarely-visited Mrauk-oo with its array of enormous, ornate-beehive style pagodas and tattoo-faced locals.
You might walk, barefoot, past rows of gilded Buddhas or visit a golden rock at Bago that is balanced high on its cliff top perch, it’s said, by the weight of one of Buddha’s hairs placed in its stupa. Or you may decide to cruise the Irrawaddy river, past bamboo villages and monasteries that soar above the forest canopy and ruined temples.
Ask Rob about a tailor-made vacation to Myanmar; inspire your imagination.
