Detailed schedule

Day 1 - Welcome to Yangon

Upon arrival in Yangon, transfer to the hotel for check in (early check-in depends on availability).

After an afternoon of relaxation, get a taste of local life in the big city with a fabulous Yangon evening tour. Around 16:00, transfer to the jetty and board a boat for a 1.5-hour evening cruise on the Yangon River. Enjoy snacks and drinks while watching scenes of river life- with fishermen, local ferries and seagulls passing by.

After sunset, return to dry land and hop in a pedal-powered trishaw for a ride through the streets toward Sule Paya. This way of travelling is fabulous in the evening, passing the colourful street stalls and illuminated colonial buildings of downtown.

Arrive in Chinatown and say farewell to the trishaw. Take a short walk through this lively neighbourhood. Pass by Chinese temples and street stalls on the way to 19th Street where dozens of vendors set up barbeque stalls. This is a popular spot for locals to gather, have a drink and chat with new found friends. Enjoy a dinner of delicious grilled meats, seafood and vegetable dishes with traditional dipping sauces and side dishes while soaking up the bustling atmosphere.

The night comes to a close with a trip to a live music venue for a post-dinner drink. Depending on personal interests or the night of the week, the location may vary from a popular local bar to a more up-market expat hangout. (Extra charges may apply)

Following the nightcap, transfer back to the hotel for a good night’s sleep.


Guide and driver available until 22:00PM. After that time a taxi will be arranged at own account

Day 2 - Yangon - Exloration

Meet with the guide and driver at the hotel to venture downtown and explore the city centre and its fabulous mix of architecture and sites. The streets are filled with historical buildings, many of which have a faded colonial charm not seen elsewhere in Asia. Start at the Post Office – a lovely historic building- and walk to Sule Paya in the middle of downtown. Along the way, pass by Strand Hotel, Mahabandoola Park and Independence Monument. Then visit Little India and Chinatown, a colorful cacophony of restaurants, temples and markets. Reach Bogyoke Market, formerly known as Scott’s Market, where there is time to browse through dozens of stalls and shops. This is Yangon’s best market for handicrafts and other goods, so be sure to pick up some souvenirs (Note: Market is closed on Mondays and public holidays).

Lunch at a local restaurant where delicious Burmese cuisine is served in a clean, comfortable environment.

After lunch, visit Kyaukhtatgyi Pagoda, home to a 70-metre long reclining Buddha. A visit to Kyaukhtatgyi provides a great overview of Buddhism with murals depicting the life of Buddha, and a statue carved with traditional symbols. Many locals often gather here to pay homage and pray.

Continue to a local tea shop for a chance to experience an integral part of Burmese life: drinking tea! Select from an array of snacks and enjoy a coffee or tea while sitting amongst businessmen, friends and families who gather at the tea shop to socialise or conduct business.

Next the guided tour goes to Kandawgyi Park, one of central Yangon’s greenest spots. Here, see the glittering Karaweik Barge, a replica of the royal barge, and the vast lake with views of Shwedagon Pagoda in the background. Depending on the day of the visit, Kandawgyi may be busy with local families who come here on the weekend to relax in the fresh air.

From here, continue to Shwedagon Pagoda the most revered Buddhist temple in Myanmar. Although the origins of the pagoda are unclear, local legend has it that the original structure was built 2,500 years ago then renovated several times before taking its current shape in the 15th century. The 8-sided central stupa is 99 metres tall, gilded with gold leaf and is surrounded by 64 smaller stupas. Follow the guide’s lead while touring this massive complex and learn why it’s so revered among locals.

Day 3 - Yangon - Mandalay

After breakfast, transfer to the airport at 08:00 for a domestic flight to Mandalay.

Upon arrival at Mandalay airport, meet with the guide and driver and head to Ava, the capital of Myanmar from the 14th to 18th centuries. Take a short ferry ride across the river to a waiting horse and carriage and hop aboard. Visit the old wooden Bagaya Monastery and the remains of the Royal Palace and Fort. Along the way, pass by charming little villages nestled between Ava’s and get a glimpse of local life in the Burmese countryside.

Stop for lunch in Ava before returning to the car.

Return toward the city and stop at Amarapura, a former capital whose name means ‘City of Immortality’. First, visit a silk weaving workshop, then head to U Bein Bridge. This 200-year-old teak wood structure is constructed of 984 teak posts that were once part of the deserted Inwa Palace. At more than a kilometre in length, it’s the longest teak wood construction in the world. Enjoy a stroll along the bridge soaking up fabulous views of the Taungthaman Lake and the surrounding countryside, then prepare for something special – U Bein Bridge’s real claim to fame rests in its legendary sunsets. As the sun dips below the horizon the entire area becomes bathed in golden light, making for one of the best photographic opportunities in all of Asia. Be sure to take advantage of it by taking a few snaps.

Day 4 - Mandalay - Popa

Meet with the Sonasia guide and driver at the hotel and set off to discover the first wildlife of the tour. After around 2.5 hours of driving in a southerly direction from Mandalay stop to visit the Burmese Star Tortoise Conservation Centre at Minzontaung Wildlife Sanctuary. This species is classified as highly endangered by the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) and can be found only in Myanmar. Although this tortoise is now thought to be ‘ecologically’ extinct in the wild, with the technical support of the WCS (Wildlife Conservation Society) and TSA (Turtle Survival Alliance) towards captive breeding efforts, a remarkable increase in numbers has resulted, and as of late 2017 there were 2,815 Star Tortoises.

Sonasia is starting to bring travelers to the forest area where the rehabilitation program is taking place. This is a true ecotourism project because the contribution from the visit will be used to feed the tortoises, to hire guards to safeguard the tortoises from illegal poaching for food, medicine and pet markets, and to protect the breeding area from habitat destruction. From an educational point of view, visitors will have a chance to take part in a guided forest walk to observe natural breeding, acquire general knowledge on wild species and ultimately reintroduce this extinct species to the community.

After this truly unique experience drive a short distance and take a break with lunch at a local restaurant before continuing the overland adventure with 2.5 hours drive towards Mount Popa National Park. Arrive at the hotel in time for check-in and a sunset view of both Mount Popa and Taung Kalat, the volcanic plug nearby.


ECOLOGICALLY RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL: The visit to the Star Tortoise Conservation Centre includes a contribution to the center to help with its conservation efforts.

icon [b/l/-]

Day 5 - Popa - Salay

After breakfast take a very short transfer to Taung Kalat, the volcanic plug that is believed to be the home of the nats. Since ancient times, the people of Myanmar have believed in nats, or 37 spirits who serve as guardians. As Taung Kalat is the home of the nats, it is a very popular pilgrimage spot. Get a glimpse into this unique aspect of Myanmar culture at a small museum where statues of each nat are displayed. Then climb the stairs to the top of the shrine, joining local pilgrims on the way. On the way, learn more about the nats and the role they play in Myanmar society, while watching monkeys eating and playing on and around the staircase. Upon reaching the top, relax and enjoy the views.

Descend back down to the base and return to the vehicle for the onward drive to Magyeekan Village, a traditional Burmese village close to the town of Salay. The drive takes around 1.5 hours and allows time to enjoy the scenery from the comfort of the vehicle. Upon arrival in the village the local community will serve a delicious Burmese meal. Then, learn about the villagers’ lives while wandering through dusty paths leading from house to house in the small but charming village.

Afterwards drive 10 minutes to the former colonial port town of Salay. In the early 20th century, large oil deposits were found here and the city became one of the most important ports on the Irrawaddy. Today, the industry has moved upstream to the town of Kyauk, leaving Salay a sleepy town full of colonial charm. After arriving in Salay the first stop is Yoke Sone Kyaung Monastery, one of the oldest wooden halls in the area. Exquisitely carved, the monastery is one of the finest examples of Burmese craftsmanship in the country.

Then, take a short 30-minute walking tour through Salay. Walk under the shade of 100-year old trees while exploring the faded colonial buildings. Along the way, pass by several monasteries and ancient pagodas before arriving at Salay House. This colonial building situated by the Irrawaddy River has been renovated into a restaurant and museum. Start by taking a tour of the museum for some historical background on Salay. Then head next door to the beautiful guest house which will be home for the night.

  1. The climb to the top of Taung Kalat involves 777 steps, many of which have to be climbed barefoot to respect the site’s spiritual significance; monkeys might also be present during the walk up but the guide will advise on how to keep them at a friendly distance.
  2. Yoke Sone Kyaung Monastery is closed on Mondays and public holidays

SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL: The lunch at Magyeekan Village is arranged by a community-based tourism enterprise ensuring that the economic benefits are shared throughout the village.

icon [b/l/-]

Day 6 - Salay - Bagan

Drive on a road adjacent to the Irrawaddy River to Bagan. From the 11th to 13th centuries, when Bagan was the capital of Myanmar, rulers constructed thousands of huge stupas and temples, many of which are still standing today on the banks of the Irrawaddy River. 

The drive lasts around 1.5 hours and there is the chance to visit Kyauk market along the way for those that are interested. Upon arrival in Bagan transfer to the hotel (early check-in dependent on availability) 

After lunch (client’s own account) set off on a fully-guided Bagan half day tour. This program includes a range of sites, providing a great overview of Bagan’s history, culture and local lifestyles.

The journey begins with a visit to Shwezigon, one of Myanmar’s holiest sites. The gilded stupa-shaped pagoda became the prototype of the ‘typical’ Myanmar stupa. On the same compound is a small hall that houses an impressive collection of carvings representing the nat spirits.  Make a short stop here to learn about this unique aspect of Myanmar spirituality.

Then, visit nearby Wetkyi-In Gubyaukgyi to examine the beautiful mural paintings found inside. Step back outside and admire its incredible plaster carvings found on the exterior. These two pagodas reflect the architectural diversity found throughout Bagan.

After this introduction to Bagan’s famed pagodas, take a closer look at its culture with a visit to a selection of traditional workshops. Witness skilled artisans making lacquerware and wood crafts, using techniques handed down from generation to generation. The remarkable skill of the artisans is sure to impress! However, the guide will be happy to continue the temples tour if that is preferred over the workshop visits.

A final stop will be made in a local village for a glimpse of what life is like for Bagan’s residents. Meet with the friendly residents and see traditional bullock carts, still used by farmers and locals throughout the country.

Afterwards, transfer back to the hotel.

Following this, embark on a short walk to the river, passing through a reforestation project set up by the camp and villagers.

A stop will also be made at a local workshop to see the production of local cigars. Also, known as cheroot, these cigars are beloved by the Myanmar people. Watch the skilful workers as they precisely hand-roll each cigar.

Then it’s time for the adventure to explore the Inle Lake Wetland Sanctuary to begin. After a safety briefing, begin the Inle Lake kayaking tour with a paddle around the quiet waters of Nampan.

Pass through fields growing everything from tea to cabbages, pausing to learn about the Shan State’s agricultural culture. Depending on the time of year, the fields may be busy with farmers planting or harvesting crops.
