Myanmar is the largest country in Southeast Asia – twice as large as Vietnam and approximately the size of Great Britain and France combined. Within the borders are as many as 135 nationalities each with their own languages and dialects. Travel on this trip to hill tribe villages that are not part of the typical tourist route – Mindut, Kampetlet, Kyaing Tong, Kalaw – as well as a short trek to an elephant camp. Spend time in villages and markets with the locals and enjoy their engaging simplicity. At the same time, you will not miss out on classic Myanmar, visiting Bagan, Mandalay and Inle as well.
