Experience the best of Burma on this classic journey, with a luxury cruise and optional tribal extension. This intensely religious country of contrasts abounds with temples and pagodas, natural beauty and a culture where young boys are initiated as monks in elaborate ceremonies.
Explore the capital city of Yangon and the dazzling Shwedagon Pagoda with its 60 tons of gold leaf. Shop for exquisite antiques, textiles, lacquer ware, rubies, sapphires and jade jewelry. View the breathtaking ruins comprised of over 2000 pagodas in Bagan. Admire the best of the remaining 11th-13th century temples that clearly illustrate the building frenzy of Bagan's Golden Age. One can only imagine the stunning splendor of the original 13,000 Theravada Buddhist structures that once studded this plain.
Luxuriate in a venerable colonial steamer on a leisurely cruise along the Irrawaddy River to Mandalay, long known as Burma’s art and cultural center stopping at weaving and pottery villages, busy market towns, and undisturbed archaeological sites. View the intricate wood and stone carvings, the world’s largest book and spectacular sunsets. Drive across forested hills and yellow flower fields to Inle Lake, the serene and alluring home of the Intha tribe known for their unique leg-rowing, floating gardens, villages of silk and cotton weavers, tribal markets and beautiful pagoda festivals.
