“Come you back to Mandalay, Where the old Flotilla lay…” Rudyard Kipling wrote of this far-off land of elephants, palm trees, temple bells and pagodas. Indeed, four thousand sacred stupas across the plains of Bagan (Pagan) are an awe-inspiring sight, as is the mixture of British Colonial architecture alongside old wooden monasteries ornamented with intricate spiritual carvings, and Shwedagon Pagoda, perhaps the world's richest golden stupa.
Sagaing, the spiritual capital of Myanmar (once known as Burma), boasts hundreds of temples, pagodas, nunneries, monasteries and meditation caves with spectacular views of the Irrawaddy River and Mandalay. Visit Myanmar, (officially known as the Republic of the Union of Myanmar) to experience a range of festivals; there is at least one for every month of the year and most are celebrated nationwide. During your travel adventure with us you will get to see that beyond the exotic sights and festivals are the gentle, proud and devout Burmese people who truly make the Myanmar travel experience an experience of a lifetime.

The trip to Burma was wonderful. I really enjoyed the hotels, food and sights, but most of all Rosie was absolutely terrific. She was so knowledgeable, open, interesting, flexible and most helpful in every way. It was so nice that she stayed with us the whole trip as I was really able to get to know her. The Burmese people were so totally lovely and welcoming and I am so glad I went. Rosie was such a special and amazing guide. I can't imagine the trip without her."Come you back to Mandalay, Where the old Flotilla lay..." Rudyard Kipling wrote of this far-off land of elephants, palm trees, temple bells and pagodas.
Rosie is a doll. She is so charming and all-knowing, the perfect guide. I will never forget her or the wonderful people in Myanmar.
