Burma is a magical country where people kiss by sniffing, there are eight days in a week and the major unit of currency has been determined by astrology! Fairy tale pagodas in cotton candy colors of pink and blue dot the landscape, people cover their face with white powder from the bark of a tree, and clouds and mist cast a romantic tropical haze over the country.
This trip covers some of the highlights of Burma, traveling from Yangon, at the mouth of the Irawaddy River; up to Bagan, city of 5,000 pagodas; farther north to Mandalay and the ancient kingdom of Amarapura; east to Taungyii, and Inle Lake in Shan State; and back down to Yangon.
