Custom Journeys to Myanmar

The name Myanmar comes from ‘Mya’ (emerald); visit this ancient fairy-tale land of temples and pagodas and you will see why. Cruise the famous Irrawady River from mythical Mandalay to Bagan against a backdrop of 12th and 13th century architecture. Bagan was once home to over 10,000 temples, pagodas and monasteries, of which only 2200 stand today. Mandalay, the ancient capital of the Burmese Empire still retains its imperial glory of palaces and moats. Visit the biggest book in the world, the 1460-page tome of Buddhism, each page a 1.5 meter slab of polished marble with a hundred lines of carefully-engraved text. Watch the glorious past of history and architecture mingle with the charming present of bustling commerce and mouth-watering street-cuisine; truly a global destination worthy of its South East Asian neighbors.
