There are few better ways to immerse yourself in Southeast Asia’s rich culture than by participating in a Myanmar festival. All Asia Tours’ Myanmar Celebrations: 3-Day Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda Festival provides you with insider access to this fascinating and iconic festival, which honors five golden Buddha statues that are over 800 years old! From the throngs of locals participating in the lively, carnival-like atmosphere to the gilded ships that float through Inle Lake, you’ll feel all of your senses awakened by the many vibrant colors and lively sounds that surround you.

Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda is a highly sacred landmark for the Shan people, and the festival itself is one of the most anticipated events in Myanmar. The celebrations center around a centuries-old legend -- a barge containing the priceless Buddha images was sailing around the lake, but the boat tipped over without warning, and one of the artworks was lost. Miraculously, this Buddha was later found at Phaung Daw Oo, and the temple continues to protect this precious statue today.

At Inle Lake, Myanmar, you’ll find the festival atmosphere filled with joy and excitement. One of the celebration’s main highlights includes the spectacular golden barges that are propelled by a team of skilled rowers. These beautiful ships display ornately-designed Karaweik birds’ heads. According to Burmese mythology, the Karaweik possesses a beautiful, melodious cry. You’ll also see the famous Burmese Intha rowers, who masterfully propel their boats by rowing with one foot. The festival’s excitement also reaches new heights with a regal ship procession and a thrilling boat race!

The Inle Lake area, one of Myanmar’s most beautiful destinations, offers an expanse of steely blue water that looks like it could merge with the pale sky above. Picturesque scenery also borders Inle Lake, including gently rolling hills covered in thick patches of green foliage. Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda’s scarlet roof, accented with splashes of bright gold, contrasts beautifully with its natural surroundings. If you have a passion for photography -- whether you’re a professional, amateur, or somewhere in between -- you’ll find countless chances to snap stunning photos that will preserve your memories for years to come.

This unique private tour is an excellent way to experience Burmese spirituality and local life at close range. Discover the complete list of attractions and destinations in the detailed itinerary.

"Fantastic experience, very well organized in every detail. Vietman is not rich of historical sites, but a country that entertain the visitor with all aspects of their culture. More than a tour it has been a holiday. I enjoyed a lot entertainment as painting mask and cooking lessons."
