Asian Odysseys, USA, in conjunction with our partner in Yangon, has created an itinerary that is both rich and rewarding. Included are major sightseeing highlights and fascinating cultural experiences. Special highlights include a candlelit dinner at an ancient pagoda, classical dance and marionette shows, horse cart excursions through local villages, private boat tours on the waterways of the Irrawaddy River and through Inle Lake, and excursions to villages in Inle Lake just recently opened to exploration. Colorful markets, talented artisans and beautiful natural scenery await us.
Isolated from modern influence for decades, each of these destinations offers us an opportunity for an exciting and fulfilling journey. With a focus on the culture, people, arts and sights of Myanmar, we will see fairy-tale pagodas, fascinating architecture, and lively street life. We will stay at deluxe boutique hotels and sample gourmet cuisine. Our guides are carefully chosen for their wealth of knowledge and their ability to help us understand these diverse cultures and sights. The warmth and hospitality of the local people will make this journey memorable.
Winter is an ideal time of year to visit the area. Join with a small group for a trip that is exciting, exotic—and fun!
