Burma (February 18, 2018) - Burma Small Group Tour

Until recently unexplored from the outside worlds, Burma, unlike many other South East Asian nations, is still largely underdeveloped. We start the trip in the town of Mandalay. Immortalized in the words of Ki-pling, Mandalay has fascinated the visitor for centuries. Burma's former capitol and home to the last of Burma's kings, Thibaw, are remains of dynastic leaders throughout the area, making it an interesting place for historians.

We continue our trip with a quiet drive on the Irrawaddy River to the antique town of Bagan. At Mandalay and Bagan we go to see craftsmen from the fields of wooden carvings, tapestries, lacquered goods and foliage-golden - especially loved in Burma, before we go to Mount Popa, a prominent place of sanctuary with shrines on a moutains.

Formerly a mountain resort in Britain with forested areas, towns and luxuriant verdant orchards, it is now an ethically protected area. is an old people's home for 11 young animals that no longer work in the timber sector; an important place in a land with the highest number of working animals in the whole wide globe.

The next stop is one of the most notable places of the voyage, Lake Inle. It ends in the town Yangon. The most beautiful thing about this stately stupa, decorated with dark golden leaves, is at sundown; a great way to end a voyage through Burma. An obligatory surcharge for a singleroom applies to all singleriders and guarantees a singleroom for all night of the group.

All nights on the Beautiful Burma Tours have their own bathroom (bath, showers and WC). There are a number of ways to travel - airplanes, boat and bus. From Mandalay to Yangon. Kindly notice that check-in at the Mandalay is from 14:00 hrs.

Today starts in the old Mandalay, Burma's former capitol and theme of Kipling's celebrated poet. Upon your arriving at Mandalay International Airport you will be met and accompanied for the brief journey to our airport resort. We are based at the charming Mandalay Hill Resort on the outskirts of the city overlooking Mandalay Hill.

This evening, when all members of the group have reached the town, we will go to enjoy a welcome supper in a place of your choosing. In the second half of the year, we start our explorations with a stop at the market of Java, where Java is sliced, formed and burnished to sell to merchants before going to some of our own shops to see artisans working with woodcarvings, calaga tapestry and goldfleet using tradition.

The Mahamuni Pagoda, which houses a holy Buddha picture, is one of only five pictures taken during Buddha's time. At lunchtime we resume our Mandalay trip by visiting Shwenandaw Abbey, a large teak wood house that was once the home of King Mindon Min, before it is disassembled and reconstructed as a convent on the grounds of the Royal Palace in Amarapura and eventually relocated to Mandalay as part of the Glass Palace.

We will also stop at the Kuthodaw Pagoda, which houses the greatest pagoda ever written, before ending the sunset on Mandalay Hill. Later in the afternoon you will go to the colorful Christmas fair. A great place to go to discover Mandalay, as its position as the main town along the Irrawaddy River makes it a major trading centre for goods from northern Myanmar.

The third full days sightseeing trip takes us through the three former imperial cities around Mandalay: Sagaing, Ava and Amarapura. From Amarapura, which from 1783 to 1859 was used as the King's capitol (with an interval of 21 years during which the capitol returned to Ava), we will start at a woven silks factory and the U Bein bridge, among other places.

There we will see the old Bagaya Monastery and the ruins of the Royal Palace and the fortress before a well-deserved dinner. Heading back to Mandalay, we have enough free day to do some gift buying at a nearby fair before we return to our hotels for a well-deserved break.

We will drive to the airfield this mornings for the brief trip to Bagan. After arriving in Bagan, you will have the remainder of the afternoon to unwind before we go to the Sanon Restaurant for dinner. The fifth dawn gives you the chance to take part in an option sunset hot air paragliding - a truly fantastic view of the area.

Have an early breakfast cuppa while the hot air ballon is blown up and then take off on a one-hour trip over the innumerable temple complex. Bagan was the regal capitol of the pagan kingdom from the eleventh to the thirteenth centuries, and Theravada Buddhism blossomed.

Today mornings we will be visiting the main sights in Bagan to get a foretaste of the rich architecture and the area' s sacred heritages. Later, we find out more about the regional history with a tour of two factories, one of which makes fine wood art and the other varnish. In the afternoons we have free time before we meet again for a tasty supper in a typical regional pub.

We return to Bagan and stop at a small village named''Toddy Farm'', where workmen climb palms to reap sweet palms for the production of confectionery and liquor. For those who want to go out into nature, bicycles are available and your guide will give you advice according to your daytime tastes.

The former top terminus of the UK colonies when the reigning Brits escaped the hot sun. Once we have left our bag at the motel, we start a pleasant walk, which takes about three to four hrs and leads through the farmhouses, woods and small towns in the area.

Wherever the wheather allows, this mornings we will be visiting the Green Hill Valley Elephant Park in the town of Magwe, which has been converted into a home for pensioned wooden celephants. After a brief introductory tour of the Burmese elephant camps and story, a brief stroll to the riverbank leads through a afforestation plan of the camps and its people.

It is possible to support the elephant hunters in feed, bath and general elephant care, and after a meal in the center we are asked to grow a forest to help reforest the Green Hill Valley. A one and a half hours ride from Kalaw to Nyaung Shwe, the gate to Inle Lake.

Lakes Inle is one of Burma's most attractive excursion spots, but it is not only scenically attractive, but also culturally interesting. Indigenous Inthar, who inhabit wood stilts on the shores or by the lakeside, practise a singular, nowhere else found technology of growing legs and caring pools of aquatic hyacinths and sludge, which are moored to the bottom of the lakes with the help of wood canes.

Early in the afternoon we take a long tail row across the sea to see the early bird markets of Inle Lake on the tenth night. It revolves around the towns of the reservoir at five-day intervals and is frequented by both the Inthar and the mountain peoples who are selling and trading their goods.

We will also be visiting a number of garages to see some of the locals at work. The 11th is a very unique date, as we start early for Sagar - the south of Lake Inle. During the whole trip we will be able to admire some of the most extraordinary birds that come to the area.

At Sagar we are visiting one of the most interesting places of interest in the region: We' ll also be visiting some of the area' s typical towns, such as Thaya Gone, home of Pa-O, Shan and Inthar and famous for its produce of indigenous ricewine. We will return to the Inle Lake after a delicious luncheon.

We have a last cosy mornings in Inle before flying back to Heho airport to fly to Yangon, Burma's business city. Check into our motel near Lake Kandawgyi to enjoy some relaxation and refreshment before visiting Shwedagon Pagoda, Burma's most popular icon.

99 meters high and decked in goldfoil from head to foot, the sparkling Shwedagon (according to British legend) has watched over Yangon for over 2,500 years, making it the oldest Buddha school in the underworld. Shwedagon is the most venerated and esteemed sacred memorial in Burma, whether the story is real or not, and has astonished travelers from abroad for centuries.

The 13th is our last full working days in Burma, we board a locomotive and drive through the outskirts of Yangon, where we get off at one of the many small railway stops to explore Yangon town. The guide will give you an insight into the town' s past and the life of its people, point out important sights and conclude the trip with a nice glass of the Let Ywae Sin Tee Shop.

In the afternoons, you and your escorts will be free to ask a last question, talk about your common experience in Burma and share your ideas before it's going to be home.
