Enhance Your Journey

Elevate your experience with a host of options available for an additional cost.

ASTROLOGY READING

Have your palms read by one of Yangon’s most experienced astrologers at the Sule Pagoda. It is the local custom to consult astrologers before weddings and funerals to determine which dates, colors and menus might bring good fortune.

TRADITIONAL INTHA BOAT RACE

Join the traditional fisherman of Inle Lake as they ply their distinctive, foot-powered rowing technique against one another in a fun-spirited regatta. After watching the opening races from a balcony viewing area, you may opt to spectate from a canoe or try your luck at the start line.

SHAN COOKING CLASS

Join an executive chef for a private cooking lesson revealing the secrets of Shan cuisine. Begin by gathering ingredients at Inle Lake’s iconic Five Day Market, then prepare your lunch in a private kitchen with expert advice from your instructor.

1,000 OIL LAMPS AT SHWEDAGON PAGODA

Attend the 1,000 Oil Laps ceremony at Shwedagon Pagoda, which illuminates this spectacular sacred site at dusk.

SPONSOR A BURMESE BOY’S NOVITIATION CEREMONY

Sponsor a shinbyu (novitiation ceremony), a coming-of-age ritual celebrating an aspiring young monk’s first entry to the monastery. Enjoy privileged access to this time-honored tradition and the village festivities.

COMBINE YOUR JOURNEY

Extend your time in southeast Asia by combining this journey with Tailor Made Cambodia: Angkor Wat, Tailor Made Laos: Luang Prabang or Tailor Made Thailand: Bangkok to the Beach.

Sit for a Photo Shoot in Burmese Wedding Attire

Known as mingala saung, or “occasion of good fortune,” Burmese weddings are deeply rooted in tradition, with many brides donning the ornate, heirloom gowns of their ancestors. Take center stage as you have your hair styled and select an outfit from the studio’s stunning collection of traditional wedding attire. Then, sit for a professional photo shoot and leave with a keepsake you won’t soon forget.

Create With a Celebrated Yangon Artist

With many of its works deeply rooted in politics and history, Burma’s contemporary art scene offers an unvarnished introspective on the nation’s identity. Draw on the passion of a celebrated local artist as Khin Zaw Latt and a handful of his contemporaries open the doors of his home studio for a hands-on creative workshop. After a brief overview of color theory, find your inspiration as you paint or draw under Latt’s expert guidance.
