Burma photo tour
22 January – 1 February 2017
Highlights: Shwedagon Pagoda, Temples of Bagan, U-Bein teak bridge, Inle Lake
A thousand golden temples, 500,000 monks & a million smiles.
Myanmar remains one of the most mysterious and undiscovered destinations in the world. As this ancient land struggles to forge a new identity, it’s history and colonial past sit side by side with centuries old temples and a population cautiously looking towards the future. Indeed, the country‚ it’s people and culture are amongst the most charming and authentic in the region.
Myanmar today offers a rich and varied travel experience that takes you back in time. Commonly referred to as the “Golden Land”, Myanmar is a deeply religious Buddhist country with countless numbers of glistening temples and ancient monuments that date back thousands of years.
Our tour takes us from the faded colonial architecture of Yangon and the glistening Shwedagon Pagoda to the awe inspiring plain of Bagan with over 2000 temples, the serenity of Inle Lake and photogenic teak bridge near Mandalay. Burmese people are very welcoming and often ask to have their photo taken offering us an opportunity to take unique, special images of people as yet untainted by mass tourism.
This will be my 5th photo tour to Burma and it still remains one of my absolute favourite destinations for photography. We will stay in some of the best hotels in the country and all locations have been carefully selected to offer the optimum photo opportunities.
