Local life in Myanmar

From the former capital of Yangon, we make our way to a charming community-managed lodge. Although the travelling distance is short, the change in scenery is immense. On arrival, we will be warmly welcomed by the village elders of Kyaikthalae, followed by a leisurely stroll to discover our new surroundings. We then get to watch an interesting demonstration of the local handicrafts industry.

After a restful night in simple but functional accommodation, we will wake early to donate alms to the local monks on their early morning round and receive a blessing. This spiritual encounter will be followed by a hearty breakfast and an enriching day of cultural exposure. Our itinerary includes local farming practices, cooking techniques and pottery skills that date back to the 15th century.

As part of our ‘giving back’ responsibility to our host communities, we will take part in a tree planting initiative. The perfect day ends with dinner and a cultural show performed by residents of Kyaikthalae. Ahead of our journey back to Yangon, we will visit some local Buddhist shrines.
