    Transportation

    Imperial Myanmar reflects the rich history of Myanmar through centuries with interrupted reign, glories and development. From the modern Yangon to the north hub of Mandalay, haunted world of Bagan and picturesque Inle Lake. The trip recalls the spirit of different kingdoms that established the famed culture of Myanmar.
    The former capital of Myanmar, Yangon is the rendezvous of Burmese, Indian and Chinese culture. The glittering Shwedagon Pagoda dominates the city, the green lakes of Inaya, Kandawgyi and British colonial buildings.
    **We suggest that you fly to Myanmar via Bangkok. There are few daily direct flights to Mandalay operated by Bangkok Airways, Thai Airway or Air Asia. This route helps save time and money.
