Afterwards, visit a lacquerware craft shop to see the process of hand-making beautiful artefacts. In the afternoon, drive to Taung Bi Village and see suitable monastery for alms food offering to monks since many Buddhist monasteries are located in this village. Later we will drive to the most famous old wooden monastery, Nat Htauk Kyaung. As the sun goes down, we will be at one of the ideal viewing sites selected by our tour guide for a panoramic sunset view over the river Irawaddy, the largest in Myanmar.
Transfer to airport to take a flight to Heho and further drive to Kalaw, which still has a feel of an old British era Hill station. Kalaw sits high on the western edge of the Shan Plateau. We will first visit the beautiful Pindaya caves with more than a thousand statues of Golden Buddhha kept at various levels. Later after a leisurely lunch, we will check into our hotel in Kalaw. Evening is free to take a walk in the still a peaceful Kalaw town where the pre Independence Muslim and Gorkha people from British India can be seen. These people worked in railway building in the 1940’s and decided to stay back after India gained its independence.
Breakfast at the hotel. Transfer to railway station to take a train to Heho. (Please note that the train is local train and not luxury train). As the train descends from the hills, the views are beautiful but the main purpose of this journey is to see the local Burmese folks from a close distance. Arrive in Heho, drive to Nyaung Shwe, where we will keep the big bags in the hotel and proceed to the Port with a small bag for 2 nights, to take a motorboat to the Interior of the Inle Lake. On arrival at the hotel on the Lake, we will check-in. The sunset can be enjoyed from the viewing deck.
The morning is beautiful on the lake. Inle lake is one of the top tourist attractions in Myanmar. Our sightseeing will be by long tailed boat to first the Innpawkhone Village where you can see lotus and silk weaving industries. Next visit Nanpan to see the traditional boat making, cheroot (Burmese cigar) making factory. We will also be able to see how people have been living in the houses built on stilts as we pass them in our boat. As we head back to our hotel, we will see the traditional fishermen going about their job with the conical fishing nets in the lake. This is an excellent photo opportunity.
After a leisurely breakfast, we will visit the beautiful Indein Village on the August River, which feeds the Inle Lake. Our lunch will be overlooking the river. We will then board our boat and proceed to the town on the banks Nyuang Shwe. On arrival, we will visit the local market and then check into the hotel. Evening is best enjoyed on your own in the town, which still has an old-world feel. You can even opt to take a traditional Burmese massage.
Breakfast at the hotel. Transfer to airport to take a flight back to Yangon. Arrive in Yangon, transfer to hotel and sightseeing with the city tour, which includes 'Bahadur Shah Zafar Tomb'. We also pass by the house of 'Aung Sang Su kyi' and then have a local 'Yangon Lunch Experience'. In the evening, we will visit the awe-inspiring Shwedagon Pagoda, which towers over all of Yangon. It is perhaps the most beautiful pagoda complex in all of Asia. As the sun sets the gold on the Pagoda suddenly appears to be crimson red. This is a fitting end to our Myanmar experience. Overnight in Yangon.
In the morning, we will visit the Harbor Front of Yangon to enjoy the views of the Yangon River. Later we will drive on the Strand road to observe some of the Colonial Style buildings.
