Our ‘Adventures in Burma's Golden Land' tour is a chance to take in some of the country's main attractions but also to get off the beaten track and explore parts of the country that few tourists take the time to visit. As well as sightseeing in Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan and Inle lake you will also take a slow boat down the Irrawaddy, trek in the Shan Hills and discover a section of the Old Burma Road. Your exertions will be rewarded with a few days well earned rest at the beach!
