Myanmar

The rising Spires of golden Pagodas as far as the eye can see, safeguarding a Buddhist relic at their very core. Towering Monasteries and Royal palaces silhouetted against a dusky sun. The magic of mystical floating villages of Inle Lake. Undiscovered stretches of perfect white sand. Mountainous wilds and dramatic deltas.

Past forward…in Mystical Myanmar.

Yangon

Myanmar's largest and most commercially important city is home to the jaw-dropping gilded Shwedagon Paya, the 325ft Zedi or Pagoda intricately ornamented with 27 metric tons of gold leaf, thousands of diamonds and gems. Yangon is a curious mix of the rich and the poor, where shanty houses coexist with towering edifices, where local artisans compete with swanky boutique stores and where mysticism mingles with modernity.

Bagan

Home to over 2,230 temples and located on the banks of the mystical Irrawaddy River, Bagan is truly a journey back in time. It is almost impossible to explore all of its temples and the best way to see them is via hot air balloons which offer an other-worldly view of the ancient kingdom where temple spires remain hauntingly silhouetted in the soft light of dusk. Be sure to watch skilled artisans at work as they painstakingly create lacquerware masterpieces, some of which take up to 6 months in the making!

Mandalay

The last royal city of Myanmar, where a regal past still echoes in its 'glass palace', its iconic bridges, and gilded stupas. Walk up Mandalay Hill and take in the numerous shrines, that dot its green slopes. Visit the Craftsmen’s Quarter and watch skilled artisans make silk fabric, gold leaf, and marble statues. Take a tour of its narrow country lanes by horse cart. And savor the resilience of this last bastion of royalty in Myanmar.

Inle Lake

Experience the lifestyles of the Intha people who have crafted a distinctive way of living on the Inle lake. With their unique stilted houses built right on the lake waters, floating vegetables gardens, and flamingo-styled rowing abilities of skilled Intha fishermen, the Inle lake is sure offer you sights you’ve never seen before.

I travelled recently with my family to Singapore through Hansa Holidays. It was amazing working with Shubra who customized a package for us based on our requirements. She was very prompt in her communication and follow up and was always reachable even when we needed guidance in Singapore. Every detail of the trip was executed without fail .Interacting with her was an absolsute pleasure and would highly recommend Hansa Holidays . I cannot express my satisfaction with the travel agency with anything less than a perfect rating!! I will absolutely utilize their services again.
