During In Myanmar days


What to see & What to do!

  

Arts & Handicrafts workshops

Myanmar is a rich of religious and cultural heritage in Asia. Arts & handicraft workshops are the one the most popular tourist sites for those who are keen on culture and architectural design. Visitors can be touched the massive works of handicraft are created by skilful artisans and craftsmen in ancient pagodas and monastery.

Any tour of the city should include visits to a few of the many workshops where you can learn about the production of traditional handicrafts, such as silk sarongs, wooden marionettes and embroidered tapestries, pottery, gemstone engraving, and gold leaf making. Temple architecture is typically of brick and stucco, and pagodas are often covered with layers of gold leaf while monasteries tend to be built of wood (although monasteries in cities are more likely to be built of modern materials). A very common roofing style in Myanmar architecture is called pyatthat , which is a multi-tiered and spired roof.

Balloon Over Bagan

Let’s imagine,
During Myanmar Tour, if you are flying over thousand year old pagodas and the mighty Ayeyarwaddy River, as the sun rise slowly behind the distant mountains under the cold weather of misty morning. How you feel? You can get this feeling of unique adventure in Myanmar by riding Balloon over in ancient Capital, Bagan. This is the realistic adventurous experience of a lifetime; no visit to Myanmar could be complete without a balloon flight over the fabulous jewel in Bagan.

The flight lasts for roughly one hour and includes a light champagne breakfast. Flights can be take early in the morning under the fine weather to catch up the great beautiful scenery over the ancient city of Bagan. Visitors won’t be let this splendid opportunity to go back the ancient time. That’s why we would like to recommend to take this spectacular experience in Myanmar.

Trekking

Those who are willingly to get the genuine sense of nature can be taken a trek tour in throughout Myanmar, rich of natural resources and mysterious tribes preserved their customs and tradition as well as their unique and colorful dresses up to now. Especially in the mountainous region of Myanmar, visitors have the great opportunity to visit tribal villages around Nat Ma Taung (Mt. Victoria) in the Chin State, along the Shan Plateau, around the Inle Lake and eastern Myanmar. Golden Triangle is well known for its scenic beauty and colorful hill tribes, still untouched by tourism. Visitors can not only enjoy the scenery but also interact with the villagers. We have compiled a list of hiking and trekking tours in Myanmar.

If you are interested in any of these hiking and trekking tours and vacations, please contact us directly with any questions.

Meditation Centers in Myanmar

Being prominent Buddhism country, there are many meditation centers are founded in most of the region in Myanmar. They are mostly intensive Insight (Vipassana) Meditation centers in the Mahasi Sayadaw tradition. Although there is one month visa for meditation, If you wish to practice for more than a month you will need to arrange a special meditation visa from the meditation centre beforehand. We would like to give highly recommendation to the listed ongoing meditation centers below due to have excellent facilities for men and women meditators. Some single accommodation is available. Boiled water is supplied.

The hygiene is good. If you stay in Rangoon there is no danger of malaria and the centers supply mosquitos net as well as bedding, etc. Food, although oily, is of high quality with a great variety of dishes. Perhaps the only negative is that the Rangoon meditation centers are noisy, although a few have established forest mediation centers on the outskirts of Rangoon. There is no charge for the teachings although a donation or dana for the upkeep of the centers are appreciated.
