Destination TBD
Bagan »
They say you can't point in any direction without pointing at a temple in Bagan and it's true. The landscape is studded with thousands of temples and zhedis dating from the 11th - 14th centuries.
Kalaw Trekking »
A hill station in the Shan State, Kalaw was a British get-away during colonial days; an escape from the heat. Today, Kalaw is a great base for trekking in mountainous terrain, through plantations and farms, hill triibe villages and forests.
Pindaya Cave »
40 km from Kalaw, Pindaya Cave is the home of more than 8000 Buddha images. From floor to ceiling, wall to wall, there are Buddhas everywhere. There is even a maze of Buddhas (if you get lost, perhaps a little meditation will help).
Inle »
Along with Bagan, Inle is Myanmar's main tourism draw. A vast & tranqil lake, Inle is famous for the scenery and the intriguing Intha people who live in stilted villages on the water, & have their own particular way of rowing boats and fisihing.
Mingun »
An ancient cities outside of Mandalay, Mingun boasts the world's largest ringing bell and the awesome (but never-to-be-finished) Pahtodawgyi Pagoda, the world's largest "pile" of bricks (over 50 meters in height) -- and this, only the Pagoda's base.
