5 days, 4 nights with Myanmar Travel, Inle




Upon arrival at Yangon International Airport welcome by our local guide and transfer to your Hotel. In the afternoon drive to Mawtin Jetty and take a rickshaw for a short trip along the Yangon River. Then visit Chaukhtatkyi Pagoda (a huge reclining Buddha), Karaweik Hall, a Royal floating barge on the Royal Lake for a photo stop. Late in the afternoon, visit the Shwedagon Pagoda described by Somerset Maugham: "The Shwedagon rose superb, glistening with its gold, like a sudden hope in the dark night of the soul of which the mystics write, glistening against the fog and smoke of the thriving city." This massive bell-shaped stupa rises nearly 100 meters above its hill-top surroundings. Wander through this magnificent structure and its courtyards, stupas, bells, Temples, and Buddha images, and see religious and secular visitors from all parts of the globe. Shwedagon has become the symbol of Myanmar. Enjoy the sunset over the Pagoda. Overnight in Yangon.


Early morning flight to Bagan. Today enjoy the whole day at the most extensive archaeological site in Asia. Bagan has over 2,000 temples and pagodas of various sizes in varying states of repair and spread across the plain. Shwezigon Pagoda, built by King Anawrahta in the early 11th century as a religious shrine; Gubyaukgyi, a temple with exquisite murals of Jataka scenes and Ananda Temple with four huge standing Buddha images and numerous seated figures and niches around the galleried interior. In the afternoon visit lacquer ware home industry; Manuha Temple built in Mon style from 1059 and Nanphaya Temple, said to have once been the residence of King Manuha; Gu Byauk Gyi Temple (Wet Kyi Inn), which has very nice frescoes inside. Enjoy sunset over terraces of the Shwesandaw Pagoda. Overnight in Bagan.



Take a morning flight to Heho. On arrival drive to Nyaung Shwe, a town at the north of Inle Lake. From there take an Inthar Style sampa for your excursion on Inle Lake (25 km) famous for its unique one-leg rowers, typical floating gardens, local methods of fishing and village life. Visit the Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda housing five sacred and almost shapeless Buddha images, contorted because of the quantity of applied gold leaf, gifts from the believers. The Buddha images are reported to have come here in the 12th Century. In the afternoon, proceed to the silk weaving village of In Phaw Khon and visit Nga Phe Chaung (the biggest and oldest monastery around Inle Lake). Overnight in Inle Lake.



After breakfast transfer to the airport for the flight to Mandalay. Upon arrival drive into Mandalay city and visit the Mahamuni Pagoda, with its spectacular Buddha image covered in thick layers of gold leaf. From here proceed to a little workshop which produces the famous gold leaves this ‘MUST SEE’ is one of the still ancient gold leaf producer (yes the leaves which are now decorating the Mahamuni Buddha). Time surely stood still here. Half-naked men in over 20 gold leaf workshops in Mandalay pound 12 gram gold pieces into the thinnest flat gold sheet ever:  0.75 inch wide and 5 feet long which then divided into 200 pieces. A coconut timer counts each time for 3 minutes and few seconds to sink completely into water… Follow the whole procedure! Then visit the Shwenandaw Monastery, noted for its exquisite wood carvings, Atumashi Monastery, the “Incomparable Monastery”, and the Kuthodaw Pagoda, known as the world’s Biggest Book for its stone slabs of Buddhist scriptures. Finally drive up to Mandalay Hill, a vantage-point for panoramic view of the city. One famous song in Myanmar said “if you want to live long, you have to go Mandalay Hill.

In the afternoon proceed to Amarapura the “City of Immortals”. Amarapura was the capital of upper Burma until 1850. As was the custom, most of the important wooden palaces and monasteries were taken down and transported to the new capital in Mandalay. Visit to a house of hand weaving looms, where, they produce silk and cotton textiles. Amarapura’s silk has a very unique pattern, sometimes; some patterns even take 3 months to finish a longyi. Then have a leisure walk at U Bein teak wood bridge, which is over 150 years old. Atmosphere during sunset is sometimes spectacular!


Early breakfast and before heading to the airport your guide will pick you up at the hotel to get started for an amazing morning experience.  Drive to 86th street for a walking tour of the surrounding streets. Mandalay is strategically located in Northern Myanmar, nearby the ruby, gold and jade mines and this has welcomed the merchants from China, India and Thailand who contributed to the jade market’s flourishing.  Here you discover white, yellow and green jade which can  be found in all forms, from its raw, unpolished state to beautiful handcrafted jewelry.  Watch skilled craftsmen cut and polish the stones on wet saws and sellers and buyers involved in negotiating the best price. It is now the busiest time of the day! Before heading to the airport snack at one of the numerous tea shops.
