Photography Tour Burma…quite unlike any land you know about 13 days
A 2 week Burma tour (Myanmar); ‘Burma…quite unlike any land you know about’. So said Rudyard Kipling and it still rings true today. From the faded, atmospheric Victorian splendor of Rangoon (Yangon) and its breathtaking Shwedagon Pagoda, to the historic city of Mandalay; the spectacular ancient temples of Bagan, colonial hill-stations, the justly celebrated Lake Inle and myriad traditional hill-tribes of the picturesque Shan Plateau.
On this 2 week Burma tour we’ll explore this amazing country by local train; rickshaw, horse and cart, Irrawaddy cruiser, bicycle and on foot and by road and river with the emphasis, as usual, on both famous sites and lesser known ones to discover the local culture, bustling markets, authentic cuisine and incredibly friendly people that comprise this highly varied and truly fabulous country. Southeast Asia as it used to be – an unforgettable trip!
