Myanmar, a nation with over 100 unique ethnic groups, is best experienced through its people – the essence of what’s truly golden about this land. On this active Myanmar adventure, explore world-famous sites like the Shwedagon Pagoda, the Bagan region, and Inle Lake experiencing daily life among its people walking on village trails, easy cycling through the countryside, and kayaking among lakeshore communities. At Inle Lake meet Tin Tin, a local Intha woman whose family has been living on the lake for generations. She’ll teach you traditional Burmese cooking and share how life has changed on the lake. Soar high above the temples, pagodas and monasteries of Bagan by hot air balloon then return to earth to explore lesser-known (and local favorite) ruins. In the ancient capital of Hsipaw, learn first-hand about the Shan culture as you sit down and speak with a direct descendant of the royal family. Conclude your Myanmar journey on idyllic Ngapali Beach, where you can snorkel, kayak, relax, or even ride an ox cart down the sandy strip. Get to know Myanmar in a way you never imagined you could!
