Setting sail from Yangon

Yangon, formerly known as Rangoon, may no longer be Myanmar's capital, but it remains the largest and most important city, and the gateway to exploring this beautiful country. Visible from all around the city is Yangon's crowning jewel, the shimmering golden Shwedagon Paya, one of South East Asia's most beautiful Buddhist temples. As in the rest of the country, Yangon's creaking infrastructure has not yet caught up with the recent tourism boom, and much of the city remains in a state of elegant decay. It's also blissfully free of western chain stores and burger restaurants, offering a snapshot of an Orient that has largely disappeared from other big cities in the region.

Don't miss

Visit Shwedagon by daylight AND in the evening if you can – magical. Don’t forget to find your Buddha (the day of the week you were born) for a special prayer.

Arriving in Benoa (Bali)

It's no surprise to us that Bali remains Indonesia's most popular tourist destination; though the island is not the undiscovered gem it once was, it's still a wonderful place to travel. The beaches, spectacular volcanic scenery and lush green rice terraces lend Bali a natural beauty that seems to dovetail perfectly with the island's distinct Hindu culture, which adorns the landscape with stunning temples. We advise steering clear of the backpacker beaches around Kuta, and heading instead for the quieter south coast resorts or the charming inland town of Ubud, the spiritual centre of the island.

Our tip

Bali is seriously busy – it’s a long way for us, but just on the doorstep for Australians. The central mountains, or north and west coasts, are quieter.

For once-in-a-lifetime tailor-made itineraries, Mundy Adventures specialises in expedition cruises to some of the most wonderful places on earth; places often only accessible by water.
