Most folk who have an interest in history are aware significant Second World War events occurred in the country of Burma. It was the longest single campaign of that war and still being bitterly fought at the time of the Japanese Surrender order to their forces.
We travel a significant section of the war time Burma Road and the Ledo Road – linked to keep China supplied to stay in the war against the Japanese; mythical Mandalay, the British battle masterstroke at untouristed Meiktila, then to the mighty Irrawaddy River where the British forced a crossing aided by a brilliant deception plan.
As well as cruising on the river, we visit and marvel at the ancient temples, shrines and structures that make up the world heritage site of Bagan.
The tourist sites of Myanmar are not forgotten in our programme, with visits to attractions and the colonial past of Yangon.
