Megan McCormick starts her journey in Yangon with a visit to Shwedagon Pagoda, the most revered Buddhist temple in Myanmar. She then stops by Inle Lake and heads to the Shan Palace in the town of Hsipaw, where she uncovers a centuries-old tribal rivalry.
Megan travels by train to Mandalay to visit the golden Mahamuni Buddha and to try her hand at puppetry. She makes her way to the Chin State and then the one-time capital city of Bagan. Megan's last stop is the Rahkine State, where she boards a boat to the ultimate beach destination of Ngapali Beach.
