Day 03 - 04: Bagan Archeaological 
Bagan is like Angkor in Cambodia. It is simply gorgeous. With about 2,500 pagodas and temples poke out in a sacred plain, your tour guide will not have time to show you all the temples but the most impressive ones.
For the first day, you will encounter Andaman, Sulamani, Thatbyinnyu, Shwezigon as well some less-known sites.  Enjoy your sunset by the river as you set sail on the waterways of Irrawaddy. 
We keep the second day for something off-tourist-path like Bagan Photography Tours . Another suggestion is to combine Bagan balloon flight in the morning then learn about traditional works of making parasol, lacquerware, ending by a cultural show at Dandare center.

Day 05 - 06: Shan State with Inle Lake
The main purpose of ticking Shan state to this fabulous trip is to let you enjoy the scenery contrast from east to west Myanmar. 
To kick of the sightseeing in Inle Lake, you will board a wooden boat to navigate through the typical floating plantation, stopping for a glimpse of local life. We take time to get to know about the Inthar fisherman and their unique rowing style.
Your exploration of Shan state continues with a full day excursion to Kakku, home to the Pa-O ethnic minority. This road trip is very scenic. You will not miss the chance to learn about the quaint local customs before you fly back to Yangon.

Day 07: Leaving Myanmar
For your last leg of your trip, there are 2 museums to see including National Museum and Uthant House. Followingly, you will have time to select the best souvenirs at Bogyoke Aung San market which has 2000 stalls of finest handicrafts, arts and jelwery.
