The highlight is bijou Soi Romanee lane where guests can get a haircut in an old barber shop.

The Yangon Heritage Walk celebrates the city with the largest number of extant colonial buildings in all of Southeast Asia. The well-researched video Restoring Yangon indicates what to expect.

Bicycle riders have three choices: Cycling the Plain of Jars in Laos, Bicycling Bagan Without Temples (a trip across the Irrawaddy River to new Bagan), and Ben Tre in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam, which celebrates family traditions across three generations of a rural household and lets clients participate in an ancestral death ceremony.
