Myanmar (Burma), a fascinating Southeast Asian nation that spent 60 years in isolation from the outside world, has recently opened its doors to global travelers. Yet, for all of Myanmar’s recent changes, this enchanting nation still cherishes and protects its traditional heritage and values. In Myanmar, you’ll enjoy a rare glimpse of aspects of ancient Asia -- from beautiful temples saturated with glistening gold to locals sporting longyi around their waists and thanaka powder on their faces. All Asia Tours’ 8 Days in Myanmar: From Golden Pagodas to Inle Lake sends you on an exclusive private journey to major sites and cities, including Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay, and Inle Lake.

You’ll start in Yangon, Myanmar’s largest and most exciting city, which continually hums with activity. In Yangon, discover how important Buddhist traditions are to Burmese life at the city’s most cherished temples. Tour Sule Pagoda -- a stunning octagonal building planted in the city’s center. You’ll also marvel at the art and architecture of Chaukhtatgyi Temple, home to a famous Reclining Buddha statue that stretches 215 feet (almost 66 m) and adorned with shimmering diamonds and precious gems. Yet, Shwedagon Pagoda is the crowning jewel of Yangon temples. Over 2,500 years old, this gold and diamond- studded stupa is the city’s most celebrated landmark. More local Yangon attractions await at Bogyoke Aung San Market, a bustling bazaar that offers plenty to purchase. From local handicrafts and jewelry to art and clothing stores, you ’re certain to find a perfect souvenir.

After Yangon, begin a Bagan temple marathon! In this ancient city, discover thousands of Buddhist pagodas that are scattered across the plains. Make your way to Shwezigon Pagoda, one of the city’s oldest and most impressive landmarks. This glittering golden building sits on a platform decorated with plaques that detail stories from the Buddha’s past lives. You’ll also visit the unique Ananda Temple, crowned with a large golden spire (sikhara) and home to four golden Buddha images at the north, south, east, and west corners. If you think you’ve seen all of Myanmar’s major sacred sites, think again. Kyat Kan Cave Monastery is still in use today, and many Burmese monks call this underground cave their home.

Your Mandalay tour takes you to Shwenandaw Kyaung Monastery, built from rich teak and once King Mindon’s royal apartment; and Kuthodaw Pagoda, a massive book made of over 700 etched marble slabs that outlines the entire belief system of Theravada Buddhism. You’ll also gain an introduction to traditional Burmese crafts and fibers arts at a kalaga workshop. These traditional textiles often boast intricate embroidery, beads, and delicate pearls. At Inpawkhone Weaving Village by Inle Lake, you’ll also have the chance to marvel at skilled artisans who expertly weave rare textiles from lotus flowers.

Myanmar offers so many mysteries to uncover, and this description only begins to scratch the surface. Take a look at this tour’s complete list of inspiring destinations and attractions in the detailed itinerary.
