Created from a client enquiry, this 100% vegan itinerary has proved popular for guests travelling to Myanmar, and for many, some simply wanting to “try something different” and others thinking it may be a safer way to eat across an unknown country.

This ten-day itinerary includes classical Myanmar sightseeing (with the option of hot air ballooning), market visits, spending time in local villages and learning at first-hand about traditional techniques and family recipes to rustle up typical vegan Myanmar meals.  It also includes a tour of Red Mountain Estate, one of the country’s first vineyards, to savour their wine while overlooking beautiful Inle Lake.
