This holiday combines 2 of Myanmar’s world famous destinations (Yangon & Bagan) with a foray off the main tourist trail south to discover a less visited side of this beautiful country full of wonderful sights and authentic experiences.

The tour south starts in “Golden Rock”, the 3rd most important Buddhist site in Myanmar. You'll travel with thousands of Burmese on their pilgrimage to the top of this beautiful mountain ridge to pray as the sun sets and stay overnight. From here head down through dramatic limestone Karst countryside to Hpa An, a colourful laid-back town and home to Kyauk Kalap, a unique pagoda set on top of an unusual rock formation. Continue on by boat down to Mawlamyine, a former regional capital under the British and a land of rich colonial history, pagoda-dotted hills & dramatic river scenes.
