Burma: A Golden Land
From BURMA’s most stylish hotel, we explore the colonial heritage of RANGOON where the stylish buildings cluster along the Strand Waterfront. At sunset we visit the magnificent Shwedagon Pagoda before dinner in town. Next morning in the centre of town, we embark on our luxurious river ship to cruise the mighty Irrawaddy, operated by BELMOND (Orient Express) the ship providing a perfect base for the varied activities ashore. In the company of guest speaker & ex-ambassador Robert Gordon, we explored colourful markets, visited tiny schools and remote Chin villages, strategtic river forts, a few pagodas and temples.
