Burmese Days

A wide-ranging and colourful tour (2018) of central Myanmar. From the former royal capital of Mandalay we cruise north on the Irrawaddy River to Katha, where George Orwell served as a colonial police officer.

Then it’s on to the wonderful mountain scenery at Inle Lake, returning to Yangon (formerly Rangoon) via the UNESCO World Heritage temples at Bagan and the new, surreal national capital at Naypidaw.
