Discover the ancient kingdom of Mrauk-U before the crowds do!

ANCIENT MYANMAR

8 DAYS – EXCLUSIVE ACCESS TO A NEW DESTINATION

OVERVIEW

The abandoned kingdom of Mrauk-U was lost for centuries, but is just being re-discovered. Wander this gem before the crowds arrive with the completion of a planned airport. Currently, unmarked pagodas rise above the jungle to dominate the skyline, tempting the imagination to a day when this kingdom was described as “the Venice of the East.”

Sleep in your own pagoda-inspired bungalow by the river, and enjoy amazing Burmese cuisine served with possibly the largest smiles you have ever seen.

Back in Yangon we’ll follow in the footsteps of the likes of Kipling and Orwell who both spent time here in the colonial days. We may sip a cocktail in a famous bar frequented by the authors as well!

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Skipping the crowds and exploring an abandoned kingdom
  • Yangon’s incredible Shwedagon Pagoda
