The program includes the main destinations, * classic and historic tours in Mandalay, Bagan and Yangon, * people/tribes and nature tours in Inle lake. It is good to travel throughout the year, the best time for travel in Myanmar is from October to April. As May to September is rainy seasons in Myanmar, normally we have rains in Yangon more, the places like Mandalay and Bagan have less rains as they are dry zone.



Our representative will greet you at Mandalay airport and escort you to the hotel for check-in. Mandalay - was the last capital of the Konbaung dynasty, until its fall in 1885 in the hands of the British. Even today, Mandalay is the religious and cultural center of the country, offering a true aftertaste of the oldest Asia and more deeply Buddhist beliefs. First of all we will visit the spectacular market of Zegyo (there are other local markets that we can visit according to the day). It will allow us to know the typical products of Myanmar and to enjoy the daily activity of the town. A very useful first contact to know fundamental aspects of the local life, and the great variety of positions that are exhibited daily. We will continue with other points of interest of Mandalay like the sacred Pagoda of Mahamuni, and its Buddha covered by tons of gold, and some of the oldest relics of Buddhism that can be found there. Also the exquisite monastery carved in wood Shwenandaw, or the extraordinary pagoda of Kuthodaw, and its hundreds of stupas that contain in its interior the biggest open book of the world, that is of marble leaves. Finally, we will enjoy the best sunset on Mandalay Hill, with an fantastic view of the entire region and the wild Ayeyarwaddy River. Overnight in Mandalay. Read more

2 nights in Mandalay


After the breakfast, excursion to Amarapura which is quite closed to Mandalay, one of the ancient capitals of the Burmese Empire, founded during the Konbaung dynasty, was twice the capital (1783-1821 and 1842-1859). Today only a few ruins remain of this capital, being the main attraction of the place the famous U Bein bridge, the longest in the world built in teak wood. In this area is the monastery of Mahagandayon, a large-scale example of monastic schools throughout the country, with about 1,200 monks (mainly novices). Later, continue excursion to Inwa, another ancient capital founded in 1364 and was the imperial capital for 400 years (although interrupted). Some of the most impressive ruins are the Leaning Tower of Ava, the Monastery of Maha Aungmye Bonzan or the Monastery carved in Teak of Bagaya Kyaung. However, many remains of different eras are found along a carriage route, pulled by horses, since it is not possible to reach the site by car. Then, to Sagaing, was the capital of Shan Kingdom in the 14th century and briefly the capital in the 18th century, under the Konbaung dynasty. The city is located downstream from Mandalay and has a large name of interested stupas scattered on Sagaing Hill. On the return, we will enjoy the beautiful sunset from the famous U Bein Bridge of Amarapura. Overnight in Mandalay. Read more

Food on board. Overnight in Bagan. Note: In case of cancellation of the Alliance Myanmar cruise, we will replace it with another boat of the same type or similar.

After breakfast, transfer to the airport to catch our flight to Heho, in the picturesque and abundant Shan State. Then transfer to Nyaung Shwe where we will embark on a private boat on the beautiful Inle Lake. Away from the masses of tourists and souvenir shops, we will seek the authenticity of the Lake passing near the local villages of the Lake. The aim is to see the lifestyle of the majority of Inle inhabitants, fishermen and farmers who work with great skill on the beautiful waters and floating crops. We will pass through the most picturesque corners such as the Monastery of Ngaphe Chaung, whose monks have very ancient relics, and that we chose for their privileged situation, with their beautiful views to the floating crops of the lake. We will visit the Inpawkhone village, where you can see how the silk fabric and lotus flower traditionally made by hand and with looms are made. For this area we will also stop to enjoy how the shipyards manufacture in a totally handmade way the ships that sail by Inle. We will also sail to the famous Paung Daw Oo pagoda with five Buddha images (four of them are taken out of the temple at the great festivals of the Paung Daw Oo festival). Finally we will return to the hotel passing through the floating gardens to make the best photos while the sunset gives us surprising changes of color of a landscape that is a world heritage site. Overnight in Nyaung Shwe / Inle. Read more

2 Nights in Nyaung Shwe


After breakfast at the Hotel, today we will have a very nice excursion to Indein, the 17th century pagoda of Indein, crossing some of the narrow streams and the famous floating gardens to reach the densest areas of the lake. In this area, we have an exclusive route, passing through the small town Pa O (ethnic minority) of Netaw from the old jetty, walking about 30 minutes up the hill, and passing the beautiful bamboo forest. Finally we will explore the ruins of Indein, some stupas constructed even some centuries before the XVII, to finish our visit by the new jetty. Return to your Hotel. Overnight in Nyaung Shwe/Inle.

After breakfast, we will transfer to Heho airport for our flight to Yangon. Yangon, the main city of Myanmar, the most populated and active, but it ceased to be capital in 2005 (Myanmar's capital is Nay Pyi Daw, purely administrative capital). One of Yangon's main activities is to stroll around downtown to admire colonial-era buildings (especially around the street and Pansodan Square) as well as numerous food stalls and consumables of all kinds. According to the time we will find different markets, but the common denominator will be the great activity and mixture of cultures and religions of the old Rangoon. We will head for the National Museum of Myanmar. Among the many antiquities are the spectacular throne of the lion, the ethnic history of the country or the evolution of Burmese writing. It can be visited in about an hour and a half without problems. Then, we headed to the great reclining Buddha Chauk Htat Gyi, before reaching the Shwedagon Pagoda, the most important and revered religious monument in the country. Overnight in Yangon. Read more
