Welcome to Myanmar, the Land of Golden Pagodas. Upon arrival in Yangon, a friendly local guide will greet you at the airport and take you to your hotel for check-in. The remainder of the day is yours to explore the bustling city of Yangon which, while no longer the capital, remains Myanmar’s most vibrant and commercially-important city.
After breakfast at your hotel, your once-in-a-lifetime tour of Myanmar begins with its most important Buddhist site, the Shwedagon Pagoda. Myanmar isn’t called the Land of Golden Pagodas without good reason, and Shwedagon is inarguably its most impressive. The 325ft stupa adorned with over 25 metric tonnes of gold leaf dominates Yangon’s skyline and can be seen from almost anywhere in the city. Soak up the contemplative atmosphere on the main terrace as Burmese monks in saffron robes stroll by collecting morning alms. Next, you will move on to the Sule Pagoda, a golden spire at the city’s throbbing epicentre. A blend of East meets West, take in a towering gold Buddhist pagoda, colonial British architecture, Chinese vendors and a Muslim mosque, all without the turn of a head. Unwind with a pre-lunch stroll through the picturesque Mahabandoola Park before an afternoon trying your hand at bargaining for fine silks at the colourful Bogyoke Market, and sampling local life at Yangon’s thriving Chinatown district.
After breakfast you will be taken to the airport for your short flight to the temple studded plains of Bagan, where over 4,500 ancient stupas stretch as far as the eye can see. Upon arrival, you’ll take a tour around the giant, gold-plated Shwezigon Paya, the most hallowed of all the temples on the plains, before strolling around the colourful local market of thanaka-painted faces at Nyaung Oo. After a delicious local lunch, you will visit the lacquerware workshops of Myinkaba before delving into Gubyaukgyi, or “Great Painted Cave Temple,” a UNESCO-protected site famed for its richly preserved ancient mural paintings. After this, you’ll enjoy a pleasant horse-ride into the countryside before scaling the grand Shwesandaw Pagoda to watch the sun set behind a myriad of ancient stupas silhouetted against the burning orange sky.
After breakfast at your hotel, you’ve time for one last wander to pick out those last-minute souvenirs for friends and family. When its time to leave, your guide will take you to the airport for your return flight to Yangon, wherefrom you can fly home or on to your next destination having seen the very best of the Land of Golden Pagodas.
