Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The best time to visit Siem Reap, Luang Prabang, Chiang Mai and Myanmar as a whole is between October and April. The monsoon season traditionally begins in May and lasts through to October, with July to September usually being the time of heaviest rain and many places in Myanmar actually close down during this period. The hottest months are April and May when temperatures can hit the 40s. The cooler months of November to January will be a good time to travel if you don't like the heat, with the average day temperature slightly below 30°C.

Itinerary

Combine the fantastic highlights of Asia from the temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, sleepy Luang Prabang in Laos, the adventurous delights of Chiang Mai in Thailand before hopping across to Myanmar and soaking up the magic of the Irrawaddy River and Bagan. This Grand Tour of Asia provides a brilliant combination of countries and a chance to tick off many of the highlights of Asia in one unforgettable adventure!

  1. Days 1-3: Siem Reap & Angkor Wat

    Start the trip in Siem Reap, where you’ll find the sublime Angkor Wat Temples. Explore them with a private guide who is an expert in avoiding the crowds. In the evening head for sunset drinks on the moat of the Angkor Thom and if there is time we’ll fit in a visit to Tonle Sap Lake for you, where you can still view communities living in floating homes on the river edge.  

    Accommodation: Belmond La Résidence d’Angkor (2 nights)

  2. Days 3-5: Luang Prabang

    After two nights in Cambodia, you’ll head over to Laos with a direct to Luang Prabang where you will spend the following three nights. Listed as a World Heritage Site, the city is best explored on foot and your private guide will help you uncover the secrets and beauty of this lovely little town. The French heritage is clearly felt here and Luang Prabang boasts some of the best chefs in Southeast Asia. Outside of the city there is a wealth to explore including trekking, waterfalls and river cruises all encircled with spectacular and lush scenery.

    Accommodation: Belmond La Résidence Phou Vao (2 nights)

  3. Days 5-7: Chiang Mai

    From Luang Prabang, again after a direct flight, you’ll have the next two nights in Chiang Mai, the adventure capital of Thailand. We can tailor your experience here to exactly what you want to do, whether you would like a trek into the hills, maybe visit some of the amazing temples or try your hand at learning about Thai cookery.

    Accommodation: Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai (2 nights)

  4. Days 7-8: Mandalay

    For your last country on the adventure you’ll visit Myanmar, which you’ll reach with a direct flight from Chiang Mai to Mandalay, especially famous for its arts and crafts. You’ll have just one night here in order to meet your cruise along the Irrawaddy River.

    Accommodation: Hilton Mandalay (1 night)

  5. Days 8-9: Irrawaddy River

    In the morning, you'll be transferred to the jetty in Mandalay where you will meet your cruise, also your home, for the following night. As you drift downstream from Mandalay to Bagan you’ll be able to take life slow as you watch local life pass you by surrounded by traditional farming on the river banks. As your itinerary is pretty jam packed this is an excellent opportunity to put your feet up and relax for an evening.

    Accommodation: RV Paukan (1 night)

  6. Days 9-11: Bagan

    On reaching Bagan you will be met by your private guide who will whisk you off for a full day of sightseeing. On par with Angkor Wat, Bagan ranks as one of the great wonders of the world with over 2000 awe-inspiring pagodas spread over the dry plains next to the Irrawaddy River. The ancient city is dotted with thousands of ancient stupas and temples, making it one of the most extraordinary archaeological sites in Asia and the breath-taking view of the brick temples, against the backdrop of a vast river plain is unforgettable.

    On your second day in Bagan we have included a day trip out to Mount Popa, one of the most authentic and spiritual places to visit in Myanmar. On the way to Mount Popla you’ll also be able to stop in Salay, one of the most significant Buddhist centers in Myanmar and where there are over more than 50 working monasteries, giving you a true insight into the spiritual significance of the area.

    Accommodation: Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary Resort (2 nights)

  7. Days 11-13: Yangon

    Finally you end your adventure in Yangon which is located in the fertile delta region of central Myanmar, Yangon was the country's capital city until 2005. With its wide streets, parks and lakes, it has the sleepy charm of a provincial town and is the perfect place to end your adventure through Asia. Crumbling British colonial mansions stand beside glittering pagodas, including one of the most remarkable religious sites in all of Asia – the magical Shwedagon Pagoda. Much of Yangon's allure stems from its colorful street life: street hawkers selling food on the sidewalk and gems in the gem market; rickshaw drivers in striped longyis (sarongs) peddle lazily through tree-lined streets; and people drink endless cups of sweet, milky tea at roadside tea stalls. To get a true taste of the city we have included a culinary evening leading you through Yangon, starting with a sunset drink and stops throughout the city at the newest trendy outlets.

    Accommodation: Belmond Governor's Residence (2 nights)

Experiences

  • Artisans and Galleries of Siem Reap

    With your expert guide, explore the up and coming galleries and boutiques that pepper the streets of contemporary Siem Reap.

  • Remote temples by helicopter

    An extraordinary day spent exploring remote and unexplored temples by helicopter and jeep. Head to Banteay, that once rivalled Angkor Wat as well as Preah Vihear, a highly disputed temple that sits near the border with Thailand.

  • Siem Reap, Phnom Kulen and Banteay Srei

    A 1.5 hour drive north of Siem Reap will bring you to Phnom Kulen mountain range, which provides Siem Reap with water and dominates the skyline of the flat plains surrounding it.

  • Sunset Cocktails at Angkor Thom

    Enjoy sunset drinks with a leisurely boat ride on the moat of Angkor Thom and view hidden elements of the ancient Khmer water systems. Relaxing with gin and tonic in hand and accompanied by the sound of bird song, this is a great way to end the day.

  • Villa Chandara - Experiential Dining

    Head to the Cambodian countryside for a gourmet private dining experience surrounded by luminous paddy fields.
