Half-hidden from the world for decades and only recently re-opened to visitors, Burma (Myanmar) is an exciting and adventurous destination. On this trip we admire gold-encrusted pagodas in Rangoon, floating gardens and stilt villages at Inle Lake and the giant pagoda and bell at Mingun. We explore the many temples of the spectacular Bagan Plains and the ancient cities of Amarapura and Inwa. We also explore the Shan Highlands, discovering the old British hill station of Kalaw.
