Burma In Focus

New Colin Prior Photo Special

Colin Prior has announced that he will be leading our Burma in Focus holiday in January 2014. Colin's trips can book up very quickly and Burma - with its exotic people, stunning temples and evocative light - is a simply amazing country that any photographer should aspire to visit.

KE Adventure Travel - Burma in Focus with Colin PriorDuring your time in Burma (Myanmar) you will be able to photograph many of the acknowledged highlights, starting out in the capital city of Rangoon (Yangon), with its magnificent, golden Schwedagon Pagoda. From here, we take a short flight to the former capital of Bagan, one of the most photogenic highlights of the region on account of its many hundreds of ancient temples, scattered across a tree-studded plain. Pagoda sunsets, riverside markets and timeless village life are amongst the highlights of this part of the itinerary. Next, we make a short hop to Mandalay, where our photographic explorations will include an Irrawaddy boat trip to Mingun, with its giant bell and massive, unfinished temple of King Bodawpaya.

KE Adventure Travel - Burma in Focus with Colin PriorWe will also be looking to capture Mandalay's pagodas, markets, monks and handicrafts, as well as the iconic 1200 metre-long teak bridge at U Bein. The final area that we will want to focus on is beautiful Inle Lake, home to floating villages and fishermen with conical nets and a distinctive style of 'foot-rowing'. Early morning and evening sessions on the lake will be prioritized to ensure we get the best shots. Burma is the largest and most diverse of SE Asian countries and has the power to surprise, with its amazing variety of landscape, cultural richness and charming people. This is your opportunity to visit the country and to document a unique way of life - before it is too late.
