Myanmar and Thailand: Tour takes in-depth look at nature

Natural Habitat Adventures’ 13-day tour of Myanmar and Thailand offers an in-depth look at the countries’ little-known national parks and wildlife reserves.

Highlights include looking for rare wild langurs, or leaf monkeys, in Popa Mountain National Park in Myanmar, also known as Burma, and snorkeling in the Mergui Archipelago, where Burmese macaques, one of the world’s few tool-using primates, live and breed. Also on the itinerary are highlights of Burmese culture, such as Yangon’s Shwedagon Pagoda and the temple spires of Bagan.

After boarding a luxury catamaran, guests will cruise the Andaman Sea to Thailand, where they will visit Khao Sok National Park, the world’s oldest rainforest and home to the rare Malayan tapir and Asiatic black bear.
