Experience the re-emergence of Myanmar (formerly Burma). After years of isolation, this exotic land has opened its doors to travelers. Our Myanmar tour will take you from Yangon’s gold-encrusted Shwedagon Pagoda to mind-boggling Bagan where 2,000 pagodas and temples dot the plain. Travel to Myanmar with Classic Journeys and you’ll see the country’s essential landmarks. But most of all, we’ll immerse you in the lovely countryside and the lives of the people whose local traditions continue. You’ll lunch with the owner of a stilted house on Inle lake. We’ll introduce you to floating farmers, lacquerware artisans, schoolchildren, and ethnic tribespeople in village markets. Throughout you’ll stay in an array of fine accommodations—eco-resorts to gracious converted mansions. As you travel through Myanmar, you will have a tremendous opportunity to see, hear and feel the excitement as the Burmese preserve their traditions and create their new culture of independence.
