Wake up early for a morning flight to Bagan, Myanmar’s famous archaeological zone, covered in stunning peaks of thousand-year-old temples. After checking into the hotel, take a brief stroll through town to the local morning market. Split up into small teams for a market scavenger hunt, talking to vendors, sampling local fruits and snacks, and even getting your face painted with thanaka, used by Burmese people as sunscreen, makeup, and skin care.
Visit a language center supporting Burmese teenagers, university students, and young professionals. Sit down with volunteer teachers to learn about their mission and goals and help to improve Burmese teens’ English fluency by serving as a conversation partner.
End the day wandering the dusty plains exploring the hundreds of temples and pagodas that dot the landscape. Cap it off with one of the most picturesque sights in Myanmar, sunset from the roof of a pagoda.
