Advertised recently in Wanderlust, our new itinerary ‘Tracks to Mandalay’ traces a route from Bangkok across the border to lesser-visited regions of southern Burma and travels north through this fascinating country to Mandalay and nearby hill stations.
TRACKS TO MANDALAY
PRIVATE JOURNEY – 21 DAYS – From £4,475
Thailand and Burma are similar in many ways – both exotic, friendly countries that combine exquisite ancient sites with breathtaking natural beauty. Using the region’s rail networks, this journey begins in Bangkok ending in peaceful Hsipaw high in Shan State. In-between, there is a train ride to Kanchanaburi – location of the Bridge over the River Kwai – before heading to southern Burma with stays in Dawei, colonial Mawlamyaing and Kyaiktiyo. After time in Yangon, take the rustic overnight train to Mandalay, then to Maymyo ending with a rail crossing over the spectacular Goitek Viaduct.
