  • Yangon international airport, burma

Travel not only to classic Myanmar - Bagan, Inle, Yangon, Mandalay - but to the hill tribe villages around them, villages that are not part of the typical tourist route, and that are engaging in their warmth and simplicity. Spend time at markets and with the locals in Mindat, Kengtung and Kalaw. Take a boat ride on Inle Lake, join in as Buddha gets his morning bath in Mandalay, learn Burmese mythology through its puppet shows, and learn how to love this tumultuous and culturally rich country.
