Myanmar & Laos: Land of a Thousand Temples

January 23, 2015 - February 10, 2015

Journey with us into some of the least-explored regions of Indochina—Myanmar and Laos—where countless regal temples, lovely minority tribes-people, and stunning gardens await. Your in-depth Myanmar and Laos adventure travel experience includes visits to the Shwedagon Pagoda of Yangon at sunset, a truly ethereal sight; the whitewashed Mon Temple in Bagan; the floating gardens of Inle Lake; and more monuments, temples, and markets than imaginable. Combining river cruising and overland travel, this Myanmar and Laos tour is deliciously comprehensive, immersing you at once in the natural and cultural wonders that make this corner of the world so magical.
