Itinerary

01

Day 1: Chiang Mai

Arrive at any time.

Tonight, get to know the group as you head off to the Night Bazaar for a whirlwind first evening together. Or slow it down with a drink or two at the Riverside Bar.

02

Day 2: Chiang Mai/Kengtung

Cross the border into Myanmar (Burma) before heading to Kengtung, an inland town nestled by lush hilly country.

03

Day 3: Kengtung

Look for peace among the rice paddies on an included trek to meet hilltribe communities in the countryside. Savour a taste of Shan khao swè, a traditional Burmese rice noodle dish that's full of local flavour.

04

Day 4: Kengtung/Inle Lake

During your free morning, grab a bite at Kyaing Tong Market. This lively market is host to colourful local produce and delicious food stalls. Later this afternoon, fly to Inle, a serene lake dotted with temples and floating villages.

05

Day 5: Inle Lake

Stretch out your legs a bit — it's another day on Inle Lake. Choose between taking a bike around the lake or up to the local winery, taking a cooking class, or touring the lake by boat to take a closer look at the floating villages and gardens.

06

Day 6: Inle Lake/Bagan

Take your time to unwind with your final day on Inle Lake. Later, hop on the overnight bus to Bagan.

07

Day 7: Bagan

Start your day with some serenity with a sunrise temple tour of Bagan. See the ancient site's ornate pagodas brighten up with the glow of the sun for that envy-worthy Insta shot. The rest of the day is yours to enjoy.

08

Day 8: Bagan

Take another day in Bagan to explore nearby villages and ruins. Go a little farther out by renting a bike (or e-bike) to see the more distant sites.
This morning, you can watch the sunrise from an unforgettable hot-air balloon flight over the temples and plains of Bagan (optional activity). If you're visiting between October to March, speak to your GCO or travel agent about pre-booking the "Balloons Over Bagan" activity, to include this optional on your tour.

09

Day 9: Bagan/Mandalay

Begin your final day in Bagan with an included breakfast at Sanon, a G Adventures-supported restaurant and culinary school. After, travel to Mandalay. The day is yours: you can climb Mandalay Hill, visit the Golden Monastery, or end the day by watching the sunset at U Bein Bridge.

10

Day 10: Mandalay/Yangon

Your last free day in Mandalay is full of options. Check out Mandalay's ancient temples, the nearby royal capital of Amarapura, or the world's longest teak bridge. Visit the nearby market for local eats and enjoy your accommodation's rooftop restaurant for those unforgettable city views.

Get to know the country's largest city on an orientation walk. Visit the incredible, gold-plated Shwedagon Pagoda, the site of many a photo op.
