Summary : The Single Diamond Mango tour was created at the request of Tamarind's guests; and is a combination of our Magnificent Myanmar and the Return to Myanmar tours.

The Single Diamond Mango is known as the "King of Fruits" in Burma and is one of the sweetest mangoes in the world.

Our tour begins in Rangoon where a trip to our famous Shwedagon Pagoda dominates the skyline. Enjoy a short walking tour in the heart of our city; and after working an appetite we will have dinner at one of my favorite dining establishments where the local cuisine will satiate your appetite.

After a good night rest we will have an early start by participating in giving alms to our monks in Rangoon before we begin our trip to the Golden Rock. A natural monument that is one of the most revered in our country.

After overnight here we make our way to Rangoon where we next travel to Mt. Popa and Bagan. These locales are almost indescribable-and be assured that you too will be awed by the historical significance and beauty of these stops on our adventure.

Next we will travel to Mandalay- a former capital of Burma, where George Orwell once resided; and which Kipling refers to in his poem "Mandalay". But more importantly founded by Burmese King Mindon as a capital in the 1800s! In Mandalay we will take a short boat trip to Mingun where you can see what was destined to be the largest temple in the world; as well as a host of other historical charms.

Our next destination is Pyin Oo Lwin- a temperate locale that is one of my personal favorites. Not to be missed are the botanical gardens and train ride to the Goak Htaik Bridge-a must!! The atmosphere here is peaceful and quiet, giving you the opportunity to take in the gorgeous surroundings.

After a few days in Pyin Oo Lwin, we are off to Kalaw and Inle Lake. In Kalaw we will take a leisurely hike to visit the Palaung Hill Tribe. The hike is not technical and culminates in a visit to the Palaung; as well as a lunch at restaurant that will afford us quite simply one of the best views you will ever have the opportunity to see while eating a quaint meal overlooking a splendid valley.

Inle Lake- my words cannot accurately describe the significance and beauty of this part of Burma, as well as the unique lifestyle and culture. Let me to assure you that a visit to Inle Lake could possibly be the highlight of your trip-you will not be disappointed!

Surely just when you think what more could Burma possibly offer-and between you and I, our final destination is a favorite of Tamarind's-and in fact our current homepage reflects a guest sharing photos with a some children from a village adjacent Ngapali beach.

After 14 days of sightseeing, the ocean's breeze and sounds of the rhythmic waves meeting the shore will lull you into another world at Ngapali. The most difficult decision that you will have to make here is what you will want to feast on for dinner and be forewarned seafood is a specialty here! You will have ample time to reflect on your excursion to Burma, recounting your endeavors with your family and friends, regaling and reliving the past 2 weeks over laughs and conversation!! Enjoy!!

Burmese Women

Traditionally Burmese women wear a wrap-around nether garment called Htamein and a jacket. One unique feature of Burmese women is wearing Thanakhar – a pasty make-up obtained by grinding the bark of the Thanakhar plant with water on a circular slab of stone. It is the secret of Burmese women’s smooth and youth skin.
Our tradition, Burmese women show deference to their husbands, regarding them as “gods of the front part of the house”. The implication may be that they look upon themselves as “goddesses of the rear part” The conventional saying is men are bread-winners and women are home-makers. The roles are reversed sometimes and nowadays when woman take parts the position of a rice-winning wife!
Most Burmese women are religious. Their day starts with offering alms-food, water, flowers, lights and incense to the Buddha Image at their home alter.

The five traditional duties of a Burmese women are to do household chores, to keep away things securely, to be faithful to her husband, to share what she can with her husbands’s relations and her own and to work hard. You may like to know what are her husband’s. Here it is – to be free from disregard towards her, to place his earnings to manage for family living, to abstain from having affairs with other women, to be kind and loving to her. It can be regarded like an old fashioned though, it offers us a mutual respect, support morally each other, enjoy rights and freedoms equally. The ethics is a heritage from our great grandparents.
