Voyages Jules Verne

HighLights of Burma

HighLights tours have been designed to carefully distil the authentic Voyages Jules Verne experience into a bespoke range of concise arrangements. The 'HighLights' tours are shorter and more affordable than those featured in our main portfolio, yet still encompass the essential sounds, sights and atmosphere of each destination. Tour highlights include Bagan, Rangoon, Mandalay and Shwedagon Pagoda, boat trips on the Irrawaddy and Inle Lake, sunset tours and Pindaya Caves. Optional visits include additional temples at Bagan and Inn Thein Pagoda complex.
