Now's the time to explore Myanmar (also known as Burma) on your terms with this tour that's affordable for young travellers. Take a personal pause among the serene villages of Inle Lake, get acquainted with local flavours on a trek to meet hilltribe communities, and see some of the most stunning ancient sites this side of Southeast Asia. It just takes two weeks (and a good mix of free time and activities!) to explore a side of Myanmar not many get a chance to see. Now's your chance to get ahead of the game.
Arrive at any time.
Tonight, get to know the group as you head off to the Night Bazaar for a whirlwind first evening together. Or slow it down with a drink or two at the Riverside Bar.
Cross the border into Myanmar (Burma) before heading to Kengtung, an inland town nestled by lush hilly country.
Look for peace among the rice paddies on an included trek to meet hilltribe communities in the countryside. Savour a taste of Shan khao swè, a traditional Burmese rice noodle dish that's full of local flavour.
During your free morning, grab a bite at Kyaing Tong Market. This lively market is host to colourful local produce and delicious food stalls. Later this afternoon, fly to Inle, a serene lake dotted with temples and floating villages.
Stretch out your legs a bit — it's another day on Inle Lake. Choose between taking a bike around the lake or up to the local winery, taking a cooking class, or touring the lake by boat to take a closer look at the floating villages and gardens.
Take your time to unwind with your final day on Inle Lake. Later, hop on the overnight bus to Bagan.
Start your day with some serenity with a sunrise temple tour of Bagan. See the ancient site's ornate pagodas brighten up with the glow of the sun for that envy-worthy Insta shot. The rest of the day is yours to enjoy.
Take another day in Bagan to explore nearby villages and ruins. Go a little farther out by renting a bike (or e-bike) to see the more distant sites.
Begin your final day in Bagan with an included breakfast at Sanon, a G Adventures-supported restaurant and culinary school. After, travel to Mandalay. The day is yours: you can climb Mandalay Hill, visit the Golden Monastery, or end the day by watching the sunset at U Bein Bridge.
Your last free day in Mandalay is full of options. Check out Mandalay's ancient temples, the nearby royal capital of Amarapura, or the world's longest teak bridge. Visit the nearby market for local eats and enjoy your accommodation's rooftop restaurant for those unforgettable city views.
Get to know the country's largest city on an orientation walk. Visit the incredible, gold-plated Shwedagon Pagoda, the site of many a photo op.
Keep exploring the country's former capital on this free day. Stop by a skybar to sip on drinks and take in stunning views.
It's time to head back to Thailand. In the evening, take in the nightlife of the country's capital city as you celebrate the end of this amazing journey together.
Today, it’s time to say goodbye to your group of newfound friends. Be sure to sneak in some last-minute photos and cheers before you head on your way.
