The Journey In Myanmar

YANGON – MANDALAY – SAGAING – AMARAPURA – MINGUN – BAGAN – POPA – KALAW – PINDAYA – INLE
9 Nights/10 Days

  • Best Time To Visit : The very best time of year to visit Myanmar is between November and February, with warm dry days bringing in the bulk of the country’s annual visitors. However a visit in the ‘green season’ (the months immediately either side of these high season dates) can reward those looking to explore key sites in more solitude.

Myanmar’s people and history is a glorious mishmash of settlers and invaders from all fronts. The Mon and the Pyu are thought to have come from India, while the now dominant Bamar migrated through Tibet and, by 849, had founded a powerful kingdom centred on Bagan. For the next millennium, the Burmese empire grew through conquests of Thailand (Ayutthaya) and India (Manipur), and shrank under attacks from Chinaand internal rebellions.
