Explore has added a new Essential Burma tour to its programme, which is designed to showcase the best of the country in a more condensed time-frame.
The nine-day tour takes in Burma’s capital Rangoon (Yangon), the golden Shwedagon Pagoda; the world-famous leg-rowing fisherman of Inle Lake; and the U Bein bridge in Amarapura at sunset. Offering an insight into the local culture, guests will also have the chance to soak up local life on a cycling trip to a village near Bagan and around the temples, and take a walk through the evening fish market at Mandalay.
Prices start from £1,895 per person including flights; eight nights’ hotel accommodation with breakfast; transport including a boat down the Irrawaddy River, horse and cart, bus and bike; and the services of a tour leader.
Four departure dates are available, with the first on August 9.
