Burma’s ancient history, deep cultural traditions, and extraordinary landscapes have captivated us for years. Join us as we explore Yangon, where towering Shwedagon Pagoda glints in the sun, watch the sun set over a thousand splendid temples in Bagan, boat along the peaceful waters of the great Irrawaddy River in Mandalay, and travel by longboat on crystalline Inle Lake. From one exquisite spot to another, linked by wonderful accommodations, excellent cuisine, and the friendly and deeply spiritual Burmese people, this trip is as enchanting to the eyes as it is to the soul.
With many different backgrounds—from language teacher to photographer to author—our Trip Leaders are passionate and devoted to sharing the wonders of Burma with you.
Behind the Scenes
We seek out the experiences, and the people, who can bring to life the story of this ancient and intriguing land. We’ll bring you to all of the must-see sites, but in special ways, and behind the scenes as well, including visiting a gold leaf workshop to understand the artistry behind Burma’s sacred sculptures, hiking to remote hilltribe villages in Shan Country, being welcomed into family homes and exploring bustling marketplaces, and learning about the deep spiritual beliefs of Burma from the abbot of a Buddhist monastery on Inle Lake.
With exhilarating explorations by day, our nights give way to peaceful and pleasant stays, each unique and reflective of the vibrant culture of Burma. Our hotels include the historic building that once housed Burma’s National Biological Museum, special quarters built in 1922 for the Prince of Wales’ visit to Bagan, and our hotel in Inle Lake is only accessible by boat, resulting in an atmospheric waterfront chalet that’s as serene on the inside as it is on the outside.

We managed to pack in an enormous amount in the time we spent in Burma. It is one of the most interesting countries I have visited and the WT arrangements certainly allowed us to make the most of the opportunity.Philip M., N Wale
