Bagan scene

We arrange tours and hotel booking inside Thailand, Myanmar and Singapore. We do not have a ready-made program, however we would like to design a program and calculate the price based on your requirement and local situations.

In Myanmar most popular places are Yangon (the capital), Bagan (11th century Buddhist archaeological site), Mandalay, and Inle lake. However there are many interesting places in Myanmar where you can enjoy quality time and learn the local people daily life and tradition, and natural beauty.

Currently you can enter Myanmar at Yangon, Bagan and Mandalay international airports. However the flights to Bagan from Thailand are on and off due to economically unfavorable condition to the airlines. By border crossing you can enter Myanmar from Mae Sai (northern Thailand), Yuli (Yunan province of China), and Ranong (southern Thailand).

Suggested Myanamr plan for a first timer
Suppose you have a week to introduce yourself with Myanmar below program may suit you.

Day 1: Arrive at Yangon airport and transfer to the hotel. Depending on the arrival time you may have free time or do a visit to the famous 2500 years old Shwedagon pagoda.

Day 2: Today you will take a flight to Mandalay and continue to visit the city and surrounding places. There are many old monasteries, temples built in the architecture of hundreds of years ago. Mandalay is famous for arts and handicrafts, so if you are interested you can discover the Myanmar traditional handmade items.

Day 3: You could visit Mingun by taking a private boat on the Ayeyarwaddy river to the world's third largest (still) ringing bell. In the afternoon you might want to go to the western side of the river to Sagaing where there are more pagodas and meditation centers along a hill.

Day 4: Today you will take a river boat down the Ayeyarwaddy river to the 11th century Buddhist archaeological site of Bagan. The boat is public/tourist boat used by both foreigners and locals. It leaves Mandalay at about 6 AM, stops at a couple of places and arrive Bagan in the afternoon or evening depending on the water level.
Please note the boat is not available daily - we will advise on this.

Day 5: Whole day tour of Bagan - thousands of ole temples and pagodas in several designs you may not see in other parts of Myanmar.

Day 6: Spend moring time in Bagan. You may visit the extinct volcano site at Mt. Popa. Take a last flight back to Yangon.

Day 7: Go for shopping in the moring, or do some sightseeing along the Yangon river and city center to see old colonial buildings. Use an evening flight to back to Bangkok.

It is well too famous for most foreigners. However there are still some places which are somewhat out of the beaten track. We can research and plan a trip for you.

In Singapore we do mainly hotel booking. If you want package style sightseeing in the city and to sentosa island, zoo, etc. please free free to ask us.
