13 Nights Myanmar & Thailand

Discover Beautiful Cultures A World Away From Our Own

“This is Burma (aka Myanmar), and it will be quite unlike any land you know about,” wrote Rudyard Kipling in 1889 after seeing for the first time the breathtaking Shwedagon Pagoda rising like a vast twinkling golden finger touching the sky. Myanmar is a land of great diversity, "a hall of mirrors", "an enchanting enigma" described by Vanity Fair Travel as “at once bewitching and baffling, disarming and distorting, mesmerising and misleading. The only thing predictable about Myanmar is its unpredictability.”    

This alluring, authentic nation is tucked between Bangladesh, India, China and Thailand and is a gem that we would quite like to keep secret! Yangon is a city where you can’t help but be swept away in the throng of the bustling markets and the precious jewels of British Colonial Rangoon sloping down to pristine lakes. The trip’s highlight is a fascinating circle train tour across the large city, which will take you around a large loop of culture and colour. Next it’s onto the vast Inle Lake, high in the eastern hill country, its mirror-like surface and luminous waters reflecting the captivating scenes of life largely unchanged for centuries and stilt villages full of colourful markets.  

Along the way you will also uncover the country’s enduring spirituality at Bagan where you will enjoy an excursion to Mount Popa: small shrines untouched by time and the large standing gilded image of Yoke Sone Monastery in Salay. Be sure to scramble to the top of one of the ancient pagodas to behold the sun exploding in a huge-white yellow flash over the horizon – a memory you will surely cherish! Enroute you will also visit legendary Mandalay, full of industrious workshops and tree-shaded monasteries all overlooked by Mandalay Hill, site of a violent battle at the end of World War Two. 
Your journey concludes with a stay in Hua Hin, Southeast Asia’s ultimate beach destination. Relaxing on the beach you’ll feel a million miles away from anywhere! Gradually the song of the sea will loll you to a deep sleep; dreaming of golden pagodas, ever-smiling monks, jumping cats and fishermen steering their boats with one leg. This must be a dream! But as you wake up to a dazzling sun smiling from the sky, you will realise this truly is a holiday you will never forget!
Immerse in the culture and sights of two beautiful lands for 13 nights from £1,599pp!
