We're off to Burma

Our second personally escort tour to Burma (officially known as Myanmar), sets off from Heathrow on Monday 21st November. We're scheduled to fly on a new Airbus A380 with Thai Airways, and we'll land in Yangon on Tuesday morning. The 5-star Sule Shangri-La Hotel is our home in Yangon for 3 nights, before we fly to Mandalay to join our privately chartered deluxe river cruise ship, RV ANANDA. The best ship on the Irrawaddy in our opinion. We sail for 8 days, making shore visits as we go, and experiencing many highlights including Bagan, Mount Popa, Nyaung U, and the U Bein Bridge. Following our cruise, we continue to Inle Lake to enjoy a final 3 nights in a deluxe lakeside resort, before returning to the UK on 6th December.

We'll try our best to post some blogs as we go, but Internet access is a challenge, so you may not hear from us on a daily basis! If we're unable to send reports while on tour, we will update our blogs on our return. In the meantime, we suggest you assume that we're all having a great time - because we will all be having a great time!
