Mon Delights

7 days in Myanmar
Yangon – Mawlamyine – Hpa-an – Golden Rock – Yangon


Not far from Yangon is a small region of Myanmar that, although packed with amazing sights, is all too often overlooked by foreign visitors. In this tour of the best of Mon State, you will be introduced to Myanmar through the exotic city of Yangon before travelling overland through the delightful countryside to the leafy, coastal town of Mawlamyine (Moulmein), immortalised by British poet Rudyard Kipling in his famous poem “Mandalay” with the words, “By the old Moulmein Pagoda, lookin’ lazy at the sea”. Visits will also be made to the small towns of Kyaikkami and Hpa-an before heading to one of the most incredible Buddhist sites in all of Southeast Asia: Golden Rock Pagoda, which balances as if by magic on the edge of a cliff on the peak of Mt Kyaikhtiyo. The trip back to Yangon includes a stop at Bago for a look at its fascinating religious sights.
