Day 1
Bagan, Myanmar (Burma)

Without question, Bagan is one of Myanmar’s most spectacular temple cities. This spectacular city, located on the left bank of the Irrawaddy River – 90 miles southwest of Mandalay, is home to thousands of temples and pagodas. Founded in 1058, this archaeological zone was once home to 5,000 temples, although a few thousand of these no longer remain. Within this zone, there are many ancient Buddhist shrines and the beautiful golden pagoda of the Shwe Zigon Temple. Built by King Anawratha, the Shwe Zigon pagoda resembles a terraced golden pyramid and is topped by a golden umbrella, which holds many encrusted jewels.

Day 2
Yandabo, Myanmar (Burma)

The remote village of Yandabo can be found along the Irrawaddy River in Myanmar. The people here are well known within the country for their talented pottery making skills. They produce terracotta from mud found along the river bank and you can view the pottery making process at various stages. Yandabo is also famous in Burmese history as the place where the Treaty of Yandabo was signed in 1855 between the Burmese king and the British.

Day 3
Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma)

Located in Central Myanmar, the city of Mandalay was the capital of Myanmar’s Last Kingdom and is located on the banks of the River Irrawaddy, 415 miles north of Yangon. Founded in 1857 by King Mindon, it was the official seat of Myanmar kings until it was occupied by the British in 1885 – who relocated the capital to Yangon. Despite this, many remains of the old Royal City and a number of old monasteries remain in Mandalay. It is also an important Buddhist religious centre and this soon becomes evident upon seeing the vast number of monks who reside here.

There are many palaces, temples, pagodas and monasteries to explore in the centre of the city, each of which will take your breath away. There are some 730 pagodas located at the foot of Mandalay Hill, near the Irrawaddy River. Each of these pagodas is set in a square which protects the Kuthodaw (“Works of Royal Merit”), which consists of Buddhist scriptures recorded on 729 white marble tablets.
