Tour Overview

Quiet reverence and boisterous indifference; rapid modernization and unexpected preservation; there will be few aspects of the innumerably varying styles of living that remain a mystery after this unique tour of Laos Myanmar Thailand South-East Asia. From the relatively undisturbed sites of Myanmar and Luang Prabang to the deservedly well-tread paths of Bangkok and Northern Thailand, an ever shifting spectrum of cultures will suddenly make themselves available.

The jewel of Yangon is the impressive Shwedagon Pagoda. This magnificent structure can be seen from around the city; no building dares to be higher than its Golden Spire. Believed to be 2,500 years old and enshrining eight of Lord Buddha’s hairs, the Shwedagon Pagoda is revered as one of the most holy sites by Buddhists throughout the world. Moving north, you’ll discover an essential component of Myanmar’s identity, Bagan is on the same level as what Angkor Wat is to Cambodia or Giza to Egypt – a testament to the nation’s golden age when their cultural impact was at its greatest and outsiders looked on in awe. The Burmese’s undeniable connection to Buddhism is most apparent here.

Ayutthaya, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was a former Asian powerhouse and major port city during the time of the sea trades. Despite its fall as an empire, major renovations and restoration projects upon its ancient ruins have made it possible to imagine the splendor that made many trades declare it as the finest city they have ever seen. Sukothai flourished as a Kingdom through the 13th and 14th centuries, which has been deemed as the golden age of Thai society. The local art and architecture that date to this period are considered to be the most classic of Thai styles, which are exemplified in its historical park.

Finish your trip across South-East Asia with a stop in the former Lao capital of Luang Prabang. In colonial times it served as a provincial headquarters of the north. The legacy of the European presence here – well preserved French architecture and careful street planning – has blended delightfully with more than 30 gilded Buddhist temples to create a town rich in atmosphere and history.

Testament to the faith of the Burmese, the Shwedagon stands at 326 feet and is covered with hundreds of gold plates; the top of the Stupa is encrusted with 4531 diamonds – the largest of which is a single 76 carat diamond.

The vacation was wonderful.

The vacation was wonderful. My husband and I had a great time. We really enjoyed the services you had arranged. A few things really stood out to us. 1. The Tour Guide at Bangkok Tanat, I believe his name is, was the superman of accommodation. He not only fitted our wishes or demands in helpful ways, but put in extra effort in many small aspects of the trip. We were completely satisfied with his service and would recommend him to any customers. Pass on the compliment if you can. 2. The Adelphi Suites in Bangkok- Fantastic hotel. Great location, friendly staffs, clean rooms, in room internet, affordable rate. I can’t ask for better. 3. Service and Hotel in Chiang Mai. Although in comparison to what we received in Bangkok, the accommodation lacked magic sparks. But everything was to our satisfactory. The tour guide there was able to arrange for a last minute cooking class when we asked. That turned out to be an outstanding experience. 4. Phi Phi Island Spa and Resort – I cannot describe how scenic Phi Phi island is. And the resort did a wonderful job presenting it to their guests. The beach is small, but private. The view off to the ocean calms one’s soul. The staffs are friendly and helpful. The Spa service lives up to its name. The only two problems are super expensive mediocre food and mosquito breeding ground. But we were able to overlook them. It was a nice get away from the cities’ hustle and bustle. Thanks for making our trip memorable. I definitely would like to work with you again on my next adventure.
