In Yangon, formerly Rangoon, you'll see the magnificent, gilded Shwedagon Pagoda-considered the oldest pagoda in the world. Your river cruise will get underway in dramatic fashion as you sail along the untouched upper Irrawaddy. Visit remote villages for fascinating interactions including visits with schoolchildren, nuns, monks, and pottery makers. You'll also pass through the second defile with its magnificent cliffs. In the exciting city of Mandalay, be inspired by a visit to the revered shrine of Mahamuni Pagoda with its impressive gold-leaf Buddha and enjoy a traditional dance by local performers. Continue your river cruise to Sagaing and see the stunning Kaunghmudaw Pagoda with its egg-shaped dome and watch a local silversmith at work. You'll be immersed in the unique energy of the people on a walking tour through the village of Shwe Pyi Thar as you interact with locals and see the daily work done at a farmer's home. Bagan, a medieval capital of Myanmar, with thousands of historical structures still standing, is one of the world's greatest archaeological sites. Visit one of the many spiritual temples at sunrise and a local market selling the unique handicrafts of the region.
