Combine: Myanmar - Ancient Burma & The Forbidden Islands

DEC 2020  ●  19 DAYS ●  11 GUESTS

Join us on an expedition to one of the most fascinating and intriguing countries of South East Asia, a land where thousands of ancient stupas rise out of flat plains and floating village life ebbs and flows on Inle Lake. Explore the “Forbidden Islands” from the comforts of a luxury sailing vessel. Home to the Moken sea gypsies, these islands were off-limits to foreigners until just recently. Imagine hundreds of uninhabited tropical islands with white-sand beaches, covered in dense jungle. In this deeply Buddhist country, visit ancient temples, monasteries and pagodas; explore bustling colorful markets and immerse yourself in the cultural splendors of this magical place. Our Burma itinerary is designed to not only cover the classic architectural wonders in Yangon, Mandalay and the ancient city of Bagan, but to sail the spectacular Mergui islands from the comforts of a private yacht, to witness minority hill tribes and experience the timeless beauty of life along the banks of the Irrawaddy River from the comforts of a restored colonial riverboat. As the sun slowly rises behind distant mountains, float over Bagan's ancient pagodas, stupas and the mighty Ayeyarwaddy River in a Hot-air Balloon. Visit a remote elephant camp in a conservation area and help feed and bathe these gentle giants. Explore lush farmland, discover traditional villages and meet the ethnic minority tribes on a classic trek between Kalaw and Inle Lake and overnight at a monastery. The Mergui island boat charter company was awarded by NatGeo as one of the best trips for 2015. This amazing adventure has been designed to include incredible photographic opportunities.
