Day 01: Arrival in Yangon At the airport you will be welcomed by a German-speaking Burmese tour guide with your name tag, who will be waiting for you with your name tag. Transfer to the hotel in Yangon.

Day 02: Yangon-Bago-Kyaikhtiyo. The “Golden Rock”.
Today you drive through the delta area and across the Sittang River to Kyaikhtiyo (approx. 90 km). The pilgrimage path begins from the town of Kinpun to the pagoda on the famous “Golden Rock”, around 10 kilometers away and at an altitude of 1200 meters. We cover the first part in a truck, the rest of the way we have to walk (approx. 1.5 hours) - for a small fee you can be carried up. A simple but romantic and beautifully located hotel awaits you at the summit. First visit to the Golden Rock in the soft light of the afternoon. Overnight stay in Kyaikhtiyo. In Mon and Kayin State

Day 03: Kyaikhtiyo - Thathon - Moulmein.
Early in the morning we set off for the return hike and truck transport to Kinpun.
The 114-meter-high Shemawdaw Pagoda shines at us from afar with its golden dome, where a 30-meter-high Buddha figure was erected over 2 Buddha hairs 1,000 years ago. Approximately 2 hours from the Golden Rock and 3 hours (including breaks approx. 6 Hours) we drive south. Overnight in Thaton.

Day 04: Thaton – Moulmein – Shampooland.
Arrival in Moulmein, this old pearl of colonialism, which the famous novelist Somerset Maugham once raved about. Moulmein was the capital of British Burma from 1827 to 1852. Many surviving colonial buildings create the atmosphere of a colonial past, and Buddhist pagodas crown all the peaks of jungle-covered mountains around the city. First visits to the most important pagodas, from which you can enjoy a wonderful view. All day you will travel by bus and boat to get to know the sights in and around Moulmein. Also: Crossing to Shampoo Island. Overnight stay in Mawlamyine.

Day 05: Mawlamyine sightseeing – Thanphyu Zayat.
A powerful king had water brought to him to wash his hair from the water source there. And then something strange: the construction of a huge Buddha statue (lying down) made of concrete, built from donations and so huge that real apartments could be set up in the head of the “statue”. The builder and namesake was the monk Winson Toya. Living in the Buddha is not just demonstrated here symbolically. Located south of Mawlamyine, the town of Mudon is known for cotton weaving. Further excursions are planned, such as to the largest reclining Buddha, the “Winson Toya”, where you can go inside. In "Thanbyuzayat" there is both a museum and a cemetery of the "Death Railway" where thousands of Allied soldiers lost their lives during the construction of the railway line and bridge. From 1827 - 1852 Moulmein became the first capital of the British colonial rulers, and served as the largest teak port at the time.
70% of the population are Mon. You can still find quite scenic images with the hill pagodas over the romantic waterfront. Overnight in Mawlamyine.

Day 06: Moulmein – Hpa An.
Today's trip to Hpa, the capital of Kayin State, which was closed to foreigners until recently, offers beautiful landscapes. On the way you will see the Kyauk Ka Lat Pagoda with an extraordinary structure. The new and quite romantic hotel is named after the Zwekabin mountain. Hpa An, the capital of Kayin State, is a small but busy provincial center and is populated primarily by Mon, Burmese and Kayins. Farmers with baskets full of goods are traveling to the market in horse-drawn carriages. There you can also experience a Burma from days gone by while taking a walk. The panorama from the Shwe Yin Myaw Pagoda is worth seeing. Overnight in Hpa An.

Day 07: Hpa An – Yangon.
Today the journey takes us back to Yangon. Immediately after crossing the relatively new bridge, we head to the caves of Kawt Ka Taung, 12 km outside Hpa. Then we continue to the famous caves of Baying Nyi Naung Ku. This natural limestone cave contains hot springs that attract visitors from nearby areas for their healing powers. The springs are divided into three pools, one for monks, one for men and one for women. Then we continue our journey to Yangon.
Overnight in Yangon.
