Myanmar: A Road Less Traveled - Southbound

2015 Prices From $9,240 plus on-tour air for 13 Days - Tauck World Discovery

NEW FOR 2015! Take the road less traveled as you venture into a place long isolated from the western world but inviting with treasures untold on this amazing new 13-day journey to a place like no other on Earth. Adjust your eyes to the golden glow of Buddhist icons in Bangkok during a two-night stay. Then let your imagination soar as you fly to Yangon, Myanmar, to experience what Marco Polo called “a golden land” of spired pagodas. Stay two nights at the colonial style Belmond Governor’s Residence enjoying reigning privileges within and without on guided sightseeing excursions that take you inside pagodas, monasteries and markets that thrive in this riverfront city. From Yangon, fly to Mandalay where your river cruiser, Belmond Road to Mandalay awaits to ferry you along the Ayeyarwady River to places steeped in ancient wonders. Included excursions showcase Kuthodaw Pagoda, referred to as the World’s Biggest Book for the stone tablet Buddhist scriptures that surround it, Shwenandaw Monastery, famous for its intricate woodcarvings, the holiest pagoda in Mandalay, the sacred living Mahamuni Pagoda and more. During two nights at Bagan Lodge, explore an archaeological treasure trove dating between the 7th and 13th centuries and one of the most significant sites in the world, home to some 3,000 temples and stupas. Then it’s on to Inle Lake, a freshwater highland gem, that entices with scenic views, sacred pagodas with golden statues, umbrella workshops, monasteries, floating gardens, stilt houses and leg rowing races!
