Plain Of Jars in Laos and Bagan in Myanmar made the UNESCO World Heritage Sites List

The results are in! We’re thrilled that two incredible locations in two of our destinations have made the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list at the 43rd Session of the World Heritage Committee held in Baku, Azerbaijan, on July 5, 2019.

Bagan

Myanmar’s awe-inspiring ancient capital, Bagan, home to thousands of temples and stupas, has finally been chosen, nearly a quarter of a century after it was first nominated. The site holds more than 3,500 stupas, temples, monasteries and other structures built between the 11th and 13th centuries.

The vast site has been immensely popular on Instagram due to its photogenic character and is an absolute highlight on any incentive trip to Myanmar. To compliment the attractiveness of the site, we have a large catalog of customizable services and experiences available for small to large incentive groups.

Plain of Jars

The fascinating Plain of Jars in the northern province Xieng Khouang of Laos, with over 2,100 tubular-shaped megalithic stone jars, has also been added to the list after a long 20-year wait.

This is the third heritage site in Laos that has been given the prestigious title, the other two being Luang Prabang – the ancient capital of Lane Xang Kingdom, and the ruin of Wat Phou in Champasak. We personally highly recommend both sites for small to medium sized incentive groups in Laos.
