Setting sail from Chennai
Chennai, still commonly known by its old name of Madras, is India's fourth largest city and the capital of Tamil Nadu. Although the city can be noisy, congested and uncomfortably hot, it's also home to some interesting colonial architecture, a diverse population and a long marina and beach where local tourists congregate for a paddle in the Bay of Bengal.

Arriving in 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.
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.
