You’ll start at the post office – a lovely historic building, passing by Strand Hotel, Mahabandoola Garden and Independence Monument along the way. Then visit famous Chauk Htat Kyi, home to a 70-meter long reclining Buddha. The feet of the statue carved with traditional symbols and often many locals gathering to pay homage and pray. Photo stop at the Karaweik Hall royal floating barge. Nothing will prepare you for Shwedagon Pagoda, with its glittering gold stupa. At the pagoda observe local pilgrims and monks offering their devotions and enjoy the amazing sunset view at Shwedagon pagoda.

Day 2: Yangon – Heho – Kalaw Trekking
After breakfast, fly to Heho, gateway to Inle Lake. From Heho drive to trekking point, a Danu – Taung Yoe – Pa O village, the starting point for the 2 days trekking trip to Khaung Dine. Your local station tour guide will introduce you to the villagers along the way and will show you the traditional way of life. At Supan Inn a Danu and Taung Yoe Tribal Village you will stop for lunch. Only a 30 minutes away is a bathing place where you can have a bath and then proceed to Chaunggyi Pauk a typical Taung Yoe village. The people in this village are well known for their bamboo mattresses and handicrafts. Dinner and overnight at Chaungyi Pauk.

From here transfer by boat to your hotel.

Day 4: Inle Lake
Enjoy the full day tour by private boat in Inle lake. Visit the Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda, the most holy religious site in southern Shan State. Be amazed by the local handicrafts, silk weaving, wooden handlooms and traditional blacksmith methods along the way. Visiting Inle Lake is not just about being on the water but also about discovering the Shan and Intha villages on the banks of the river. Pass the endless floating gardens, houses, monasteries built on stilts on the lake. Stop at Nga Phe Kyaung Monastery then proceed to Nampan village and see local cheroot factory (where the Burmese cigars are made) and canoe carving.

Day 5: Inle Lake – Indein
Begin your day with a visit to the market, which rotates locations every five days and where hill tribe people dressed in colorful, traditional outfits — as they barter for goods and produce. We continue our sightseeing in Inle Lake, maneuvering by boat though long, scenic channnels. We will visit the fascinating village of Indein, with its complex of ancient shrines and stupas and walk though exotic colonnades of stairways and shop stalls. We’ll visit the “long neck” tribal women, and weaving and craft villages perched on stilts. See the lake’s unique “leg rowers” – the Intha people row standing up with one leg wrapped around an oar. It is a feast for the senses and a photographer’s dream.
