Sampan’s Beyond the Chindwin tour begins in Yangon. We will explore the history of this city: its geneses from Mon fishing village to multicultural metropolis. We will visit the Rosewood and the Strand hotels, both colonial constructs occupied by Japanese forces once the British were kicked out of Rangoon in 1942. From Yangon we will travel to Pyin Oo Lwin – HQ of General Mutaguchi as he drove his men to “march on Delhi” and take the fight to the British in Manipur and the Naga Hills. The tour will then turn south as the British Indian Army re-enters Burma: we will sail along the Ayeyarwady and see the Nyaung U river crossings at Bagan and explore the decisive battles of Mandalay and Meiktila.
Sampan’s Beyond the Chindwin tour takes place 25 November to 8 December 2023 and 24 February to 8 March 2024. Bookings are now open.
