Trip at a Glance
For years, travelers have longed to come to Burma, an enticing destination of gilded temples, verdant landscapes, and passionate, deeply spiritual people. In recent history, this nation has been shut off from the world by an autocratic military junta, causing democratic opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi to declare in 1996, “Burma will be here for many years, so tell your friends to visit us later.” But democracy is on the rise in Burma—the junta is out, Suu Kyi’s house arrest is over, and her “later” has finally come. Burma’s warm, welcoming people are ready to meet you, and to show off the country that they have worked so hard to build. Join us on this enchanting vacation to discover Burma’s many treasures, from the myriad shrines and pagodas of Bagan, to the discovery-rich banks of the Irrawaddy River, and more.
