Day 01

Yangon Arrival

Meet your guide at Yangon International Airport and check-in at your hotel. (option: Jet Lag Revitalizer Spa Treatment)

Accommodation: Hotel in Yangon

Meals: Dinner

Upon arrival at Yangon airport, your guide will meet and transfer you to your hotel. Check-in at your hotel (the hotel room is at your disposal from 14.00).
 
Yangon is a relatively quiet and charming city. Its impressive colonial and spiritual heritage makes it one of the most fascinating cities in Southeast Asia. The city is an amalgamation of British, Burmese, Chinese and Indian influences, and is known for its colonial architecture, which although decaying and beyond appreciation, remains an almost unique example of a 19th-century British colonial capital.
 
This day, you have plenty of time to explore the city on your own. Alternatively, you could opt for a refreshing spa treatment.
 
Optional: Jet Lag Revitalizer Spa Treatment at Inya Day Spa
Feeling jet lagged? Start your vacation off with a trip to Inya Day Spa spa for their “Jet Lag Revitalizer” - an aromatherapy body massage (90 min) that restores your mind, body and soul with a potent blend of eucalyptus, rosemary and peppermint. If you find that you need to re-balance and rejuvenate your body throughout the course of your travels, Inya Day Spa is your salvation in Yangon. Inya Day Spa is a completely certified massage palace where you can come to re-establish your energy and natural beauty from the outside - in.
 
Welcome dinner at Karaweik Restaurant with special cultural show.

Not simply a chance to see the splendid Bagan temples, this excursion also introduces you to the Burmese culture, allows you to see traditional craftsmen at work and takes you up the mighty Irrawaddy River to a decidedly unusual ‘cave’ temple!
