Stepping into A Hidden Oases – An Alternative Approach to Bagan

May 15, 2017 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: ,

Looking at any map of Myanmar, the region between Yangon and Bagan is often overlooked and ignored. Khiri Travel Myanmar had a closer look and discovered some interesting destinations between the country’s largest city and the country’s largest tourist attraction. Stretching over 600 kilometers, the route between Yangon and Bagan is located in the Dry Zone of central Myanmar.

Khiri Travel Myanmar has a journey starting in the busy hub of Yangon that takes your clients all the way to Bagan by train, boat, car and motorbike. This journey to Bagan is definitely something for your clients who want to enjoy some time off the beaten path. The bonus of this type of overland travel through Myanmar is the opportunity to engage with local residents and learn more about their daily lives.

The charm of hidden villages, enthusiastic fisherman, relaxed aunties tending their shops and children in their school uniforms are only a few encounters your clients will have. Stepping into these hidden oases while slowly but consciously traveling through Myanmar’s Dry Zone will yield interesting insights into this rapidly changing country. Visits to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pyay, the sleepy town of Salay and a homestay in the village of Magyikan, will bring your clients closer to the spirit and heritage of rural Myanmar.
