Myanmar Classical Round Trip

Introduction

Myanmar (formerly Burma or Birma) is one of the countries of our world, that can already easily be explored  touristically, but whose authentic culture is still being lived everywhere. Besides impressive, gold sparkling, architectural beauties of Buddhism, one can admire English buildings of the late colonial period here, and even - or especially - the buildings of indigenous people, which have been sublimely crafted by the simplest means - for example around Lake Inle.

Marvel at the detailed temples and pagodas of Mandalay and the historical royal city of Bagan, experience the local people who are working in agriculture in their daily lives, and get insight into the lives of artisans. The skilful construction and rowing technique of the "one leg rowers" of Inle Lake is unique. Immerse yourself in present Buddhist traditions, beautiful, exotic nature, and fascinating culture of the native people!

Best Travel Period

In Myanmar one can experience very pleasant climatic conditions during our winter, in the period from late October to early March, when the monsoon has left the country, and the great heat has not yet reached it. But  even  in  the  warmer months,  Myanmar  is  worth  a  trip  -  in  April,  for  example,  the  merry-wet  water festival  is  taking  place.  It's  vacation  time  for  the  locals,  and one  can  experience a culturally  authentic Myanmar, although at higher temperatures, and one barely meets any large foreign groups.
