Burma has been overwhelmed by tourism since the Burmese government lifted traveller sanctions on the country, and now Travel Indochina's Burma Revealed tour has become so popular that the Asian Travel company has had to add three extra dates in 2012.
The unprecedented demand for the Buddhist nation's lush landscapes, unspoilt beaches and ancient Buddhist pagodas – which, until now have remained largely unexplored by international travellers – has led to three new dates for the escorted tour in October, November and December.
Burma Revealed is a 13 day trip which takes travellers from Yangon and Bagan to the Pindaya Caves, Kalaw and beyond. Highlights include discovering thousands of beautiful temples during a bicycle tour of Bagan, and viewing remote riverside villages on a cruise along the Irrawaddy River.
Travellers will also be able to share lunch with resident nuns at a native nunnery, enjoy a horse and carriage ride in the old capital of Ava, and visit hill tribes in Intha and the Pak-O villages in the hills beyond Inle Lake.
In keeping with Travel Indochina’s view on responsible travel, and its promise to focus on the “real” Asia, the company’s group tours to Burma will operate with a maximum of only 16 travellers.
The additional Travel Indochina tours will depart on 15th October, 19th November and 31stDecember 2012. Tours start from £1,340 per person.
