To travel to Myanmar, formerly Burma, is to step back in time to a place that has changed little since the British colonial era. The majestic Irrawaddy River is a gateway to untouched villages, ancient cities, remarkable culture and captivating panoramas. Travel with other New Zealanders on this unforgettable adventure, combining an Avalon river cruise with time in Yangon
Marvel at the Shwedagon Pagoda, the most sacred Buddhist pagoda in Myanmar. Watch as the sun magically sets on the golden stupa and locals come to pay their respects.
Visit the famous U Bein Bridge, 1.2 kilometre long and built in 1783. The bridge is still used daily by monks and locals to cross Taungthaman Lake while fisherman and farmers go about their daily work below.
Take a sampan ride on the lake for incredible views of the sunset behind this iconic bridge. Interact with the monks at a local monastery in the village of Kya Hnyat, a truly memorable experience as you present alms to the monks and witness their daily lunch ritual.
