MYANMAR'S ANCIENT CAPITAL AWARDED UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE STATUS
BY SARA DARLING
Visit Myanmar and you will be astounded by it's natural beauty. It's no wonder that this historical city has been recognised as an outstanding destination.
With the largest concentration of Buddhist sites and landmarks in the world, the scenery is littered with religious artefacts and monuments, including more than 3,500 stupas, temples, monasteries and pagodas dating back to the 11th and 12th centuries, which are still in use today.
For visitors wishing to explore this friendly region, bespoke travel specialists, Hayes & Jarvis, are offering a 9-day 'Highlights of Myanmar' tour, where guests can join others in a small group and experience the 'Land of the Golden Pagoda' up close and personal.
Beginning in the country's largest city and Burma's former capital, Yangon, the journey continues inland, taking in local villages, markets, culture and food, which make up the extraordinary Buddhist heritage.
With every day showcasing the country’s spectacular landscape, guests will have the opportunity to explore the unique monasteries of Mandalay, the floating villages on Inle Lake, temples of Bagan and the famous Shwedagon Pagoda, which are breath-taking and almost surreal. For an unforgettable adventure, Myanmar is a must see.
Hayes & Jarvis offer a 9 night Highlights of Myanmar Tour, starting from £2,799 per person. Return flights from the London Heathrow to Yangon with Malaysia Airlines, accommodation throughout, internal flights in Myanmar, meals, entrance fees for attractions and English-speaking guide are all included.
