16 DAYS FROM YANGON VIA LOIKAW TO BAGAN

Visit the former capital city of Yangon (Rangoon), with its colonial atmosphere and the world-famous Shwedagon Pagoda.  Travel to Bago, the former capital of the Mon kingdoms from the 14th to the 16th centuries. Continue to Loikaw, the peaceful capital of the state of Kayah and home to many different ethnic groups who still dress in traditional garb and practice indigenous customs that have been passed down from one generation to the next for centuries. Travel by boat to Samkar Lake and explore the unspoilt culture and traditional lifestyle of the Pa’O and Intha. Explore Inle Lake, famous for its unique one-leg rowers, typical floating gardens, local fishing methods and village life out on the water. Travel to Pindaya, a charming village with a paper umbrella cottage industry, towards Mandalay, the last royal capital of Burma. Your last part of your road trip will bring you via Pakokku to Bagan, where thousands of decaying pagodas rise majestically from the plains to create a timeless spectacle that recalls their glorious past.
