You have little timeframe but want to see the attractions of Myanmar? Arrival in Yangon, the former Myanmar capitol, and exploration tours in the afternoons. Visiting the lying Buddha of the Chauk Htat Gyi Pagoda and taking a relaxed walk around Lake Kandawgyi. By visiting the wonderful Shwedagon Pagoda, the outstanding Yangon high point, you will end your trip at a high level, as it brightens up the nightsky.
Take a flight to Bagan, famous for its scenic tree-lined templescape. It is a nice view, best seen from the top of the Shwesandaw Pagoda, where you can observe the sunset below the skyline. Choose a few templates, ranging from the simplest, crumbly stupa to the better conserved and more intricate.
Take your plane to Mandalay and see the town. A town of world-class clubs, Mandalay is the Kuthodaw Pagoda, the biggest of its kind in the whole wide range. Check out the world's longest teak deck in the U Bein Brug. You will also visit a goldfield repair shop and see the sun set from the top of Mandalay Hill.
Next morning you will make a full excursion to Amarapura and its convent before heading to the former Shan capitol, Sagaing. Continue to Inle Lake, get on the boat and sail through the calm water to see swimming pools and historic towns. Later you will see the fascinating Nga Pe Kyaung Convent, also known as the Jumping Cat Cloister.
