All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveller is unaware.

A story waiting to be told 。。。

  • Myanmar is famous for its lovely embroidery. The art has been traditionally practiced in the country since ages. The Burmese sew gold and silver threads together on garments, costumes and dresses for members of the royal family. All this work is done by the artisans by hand and includes traditional figures, patterns and designs. The mixture of light and dark shades of colors is amazing.

  • This glorious palace is like a city within the city. It was the residence of King Mindon. Unfortunately what we can see today is an exact replica of the original palace which was destroyed by allied bombing during WWII.

    Mandalay Palace

  • The art of Burmese dance originated from the previous period of Buddhist era when Nat worshipping was always accompanied with dancing. The dance is very exalted and requires the performer to make difficult moves. The dance is presentable, gaudy costumes covered body, male and female dancers never touch each other when they dance together. Teens will be taught the Kabyalut – a traditional basic dance of Myanmar.
