With the spirit of change palpable, there has never been a more exciting time to discover Myanmar’s millennia-old culture, Imperial history, and Buddhist treasures.

Around Inle Lake, get into the unique way of life while biking and walking along the shoreline, between traditional villages, and among golden pagodas. Continue exploring by longboat—the locals’ way of getting around and tending their incredible floating gardens.

Further south, Mandalay is home to the former royal city of Amarapura, the world’s largest book, a teak pagoda, and scores of silk weavers. Biking in the ancient Buddhist capital of Bagan reveals more than 2,200 pagodas spread improbably over the plains and along the banks of the glorious, romantic, indispensable Irrawaddy River.

Myanmar is no doubt one of Asia’s most enticing and authentic travel destinations. The people are so welcoming and the experiences so unique. There were countless National Geographic moments. Gray & Co.’s team raised everything to an even more outstanding level–from seamless logistics and brilliant guides to the best pagodas for sunset.
