Journey to a land steeped in Buddhist traditions on The Evolved Traveler’s 11-nights journey, “Myanmar: Shrouds & Spires.” Delight in the revealing of man-made treasures and natural wonders of this storied country, with each day bringing mesmerizing sites of pagodas and waterways teeming with commerce. Immerse yourself in the hospitality of the people as you visit local marketplaces and enjoy regional specialties.
Your discovery of Yangon includes a bicycle ride through hidden neighborhoods and a visit to a local tea shop. End the day at Schwedagon Pagoda and take part in an oil lamp ceremony at sunset. In Bagan, stop at a local villager’s house for lunch and then travel by horse cart past some of the area’s magnificent temples. Mandalay, the fabled city by the Irrawaddy River, will enchant with its local traditions and handicrafts, as well as the fabled sites of Mingun and the Mahamuni Pagoda. Spend the day with the elephants at the Green Hill Elephant Camp, learning about the stewardship of these magnificent animals and their habitat; your interactive adventures of feeding and bathing the elephants are sure to leave a lasting impression. The adventures continue as you travel to the village of Nyaung Shwe to visit the markets and take a trishaw ride down to Inle Lake. Opportunities abound for you to travel on the lake—including a kayak ride!—and to explore the stilt communities along its shores. Your last evening is back in Yangon to enjoy a special farewell dinner at Le Planteur.
Be sure and ask about extending your stay with our, "Nagapali Beach Break." A three-night stay on the tranquil and beautiful Nagapali Beach on the Bay of Bengal.
