Combine our two extraordinary trips in two very different parts of the world, yet close by each other. Myanmar is decidedly Southeast Asian and struggling to enter the 21st century after being shut out from the world until the turn of this century. Bhutan has been closed to the world also. TV only arrived in 1999 and smartphones have not yet arrived. How refreshing! You will not want to miss these popular destinations if you are a serious traveler.
Start in Yangon, End in Bangkok.
The mountain kingdom of Bhutan remains one of the old world's last few strongholds against an encroaching modern civilization. In the charmed isolation of the Himalayan heights, Bhutan's ancient and alluring ways of Mahayana Buddhism continue richly intact to this day, and permeate every aspect of Bhutanese life and culture. Our Coda trip visits the highlights of this tiny kingdom and our accommodations are luxurious and often spectacular. Although the trip can be physically challenge (with heights up to 12,000 ft and climbs lasting up to 5.5 hours), our experience has been that everyone can enjoy this trip who is reasonable healthy. This is a unique opportunity to see an authentic part of the world.
