Myanmar - Cycling Discovery of Old Burma
Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, is one of the largest and poorest countries in southeast Asia and has only recently started to see more tourism as a way to advance economically as well as 'internationally'. While common western conveniences may not be available throughout the country, Myanmar has well preserved history and many cultural sites. Bagan, in central Myanmar, is where you will spend several days on this tour exploring Buddhist temples and stupas and pagodas. There are still thousands still standing from the over 10,000 that were built in glory years from the 11th-13th centuries. The trips starts in Mandalay, the economic hub of northern Myanmar and you will have time to visit key sites and learn about 'gold-leafing'. You will also taste some wine in the Nyaung Shwe area where you spend the last few days cycling before flying to Yangon (Rangoon) to complete your short immersion into Myanmar. This is an 'off the beaten path trip' and a real adventure of culture, history, as well as cycling fun! This tour is supported by local Myanmar guides, bilingual in English, to accompany all rides and assist with transportation logistics.
Travel season: October 1 - April 30. This supported cycling tour can go any date with a minimum of 2 persons. Prices go down with more participants. Guides accompany all rides but you have free time to explore on your own.
