Myanmar Discovery – 10 Days

Myanmar Discovery is a classic tour for 10 days to explore Myanmar thoroughly: the natural landscape, the architecture, the culture, the spiritual life and the wildlife. On the trip, we’ll visit the must-see tourist attractions and we also stray off the well-beaten path to uncover less-visited attractions such as Mount Popa, Sagain Hills and Moe Yun Gyi Wetland. We trust the good combination brings our traveler more understanding of authentic Myanmar.

Yangon - Bagan - Mount Popa - Mandalay - Sagain Hills - Inle - Indein - Moe Yun Gyi Wetland - Yangon

 The pace of travel is easy with 2 nights at a locale which allows you more time to explore the place at a fairly relaxing pace and less time for check-ins and check-outs, and handling of luggage. The accommodations on the tour are at boutique hotels or 3*-4* properties, all of which have good locations for touring and dining. For the purpose of the trip, all lunches and dinners are not included. We’d like you to engage yourself in the amazing adventure of a variety of local food.
