Day 1: Yangon arrival
Welcome to Myanmar! The former capital of Yangon, also known as Rangoon, is Myanmar's largest city and continues to be the country's most important commercial hub. After checking into your hotel, visit Kyauktatgyi Pagoda, home to a large reclining Buddha statue with intricate carvings. Afterward, you will make a quick stop at the Royal Lake in Kandawgyi Park, then visit the legendary Shwedagon Pagoda.
Day 2: Yangon - Flight to Bagan
This morning, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight to Bagan. You'll go to an elevated location amid the temple plains to observe the pagodas and temples from above. Have a look around Ananda Temple—one of the most recognizable of Bagan’s temples—and break for lunch before driving to the river and boarding a private wooden boat for a peaceful cruise down the Irrawaddy River.
Day 3: Bagan
Visit Shwezigon Pagoda, constructed by King Anawrahta in the early 11th century. You will then travel to a small village where you can walk around and get a glimpse of the life of Bagan’s residents, followed by a visit to lesser-known temples in the area. In the afternoon, tour Old Bagan and Ananda Temple, an architectural work of art and one of Bagan’s most recognizable temples.
Day 4: Bagan - Flight to Heho & Inle Lake
Fly to Heho and transfer to Nyaung Shwe, the gateway village to Inle Lake. Along the way, you will have an opportunity to visit rural workshops that specialize in traditional Shan paper and unique handcrafted umbrellas. Later, go for a cruise on the canal that leads to the open lake. The quiet waters of Inle Lake are dotted with floating gardens, leg-rowing fishermen and stilt houses. Discover Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda, the lake’s main haven, which contains five sacred images of Buddha decorated in gold leaf.
Day 5: Flight back to Yangon & departure to Thailand
Catch a domestic flight to Yangon. Depending on your flight schedule, you will have time to visit Bogyoke Market, better known under the name of “Scott Market,” to stroll around the stalls filled with handicrafts and do some shopping.

After lunch, visit Tiger Cave Temple (Wat Tham Sua), one of the most beautiful temples in Krabi.
