Itinerary

Day 1-3

Yangon

Start in Yangon and stay at the Governors Residence, the best address in town. On arrival we have included a fast track VIP service at the airport, so that from the beginning you’ll be starting your adventure in style. The next day, set off with your private guide on the ‘Elephant Coach’ to explore all the highlights of Yangon. This antique Chevrolet bus was once used to transport dignitaries in the wat and today has been beautifully restored with luxury amenities. At sunset, you’ll head to Shwedagon Pagoda. The sun's dying embers make the golden structure glow as time passes and it is an incredible sight to behold.

Accommodation: Belmond Governor's Residence ( 2 nights )
Day 3-5

Bagan

After two nights in Yangon, you’ll fly up to Bagan where you will again be met by an ‘Elephant Coach’ but this time with an archaeology expert who will be able to bring to life the incredible temples that dominate the landscape of Bagan. The following morning, we have included one of the most special experiences in Bagan and Myanmar as a whole, a wonderful hot-air balloon ride over Bagan at sunrise. At the end of the balloon ride there will be a glass of sparkling wine and a light breakfast waiting for you. Later in the afternoon take a luxury horse cart through some of Bagan’s most iconic landmarks before being taken for sundowners on a sandbank in the Irrawaddy.

Accommodation: Aureum Palace Resort ( 2 nights )

In the afternoon a luxury boat will be provided to take you around Inle Lake in style with limited noise pollution and extra amenities such as fleece blankets. As you explore you’ll pass floating gardens, markets and see the local communities who live and work around the lake. The following day we have included a unique cooking class that takes place at Inthar Heritage House and where you’ll learn all about the Intha culture, the indigenous people of the lake. On Inle Lake we  have included a stay for you at Sanctum Inle Resort, one of the newest and most luxurious properties in the area.
