Discover Myanmar (Burma)

A country offering more than expected!

A thoroughly enjoyable trip. Almost everything was great: the logistics, the group, the accommodation, the food; the transport and the included sight-seeing. A very economical trip. Food and drinks, local transport, laundry, additional sight-seeing fees (camera & entrance) are all cheap. For me, the number of VERY early starts was disappointing! I feel it would have been a more relaxing trip if the three flights could have been later in the day.

The tourists have found Myanmar but it's still one of the least developed countries I've ever been to; bags of local colour, a photographer's dream. Go soon, it's changing fast!

An enjoyable trip. Whilst you are clearly following the 'tourist trail', there are few enough tourists that you still feel that you are seeing the real country, and it doesn't take much effort to get to spots where there are no other tourists around. You visit a lot of temples, but they were all so varied that I didn't get bored of visiting more.

Myanmar October 2016

Burma has some amazing and instantly recognisable sights and sites, including temples, scenery and towns. Scwedagon Pagada on the first day was an amazing introduction to Yangon, with the chance to see it in both early evening and darkness. I also enjoyed visiting the worlds largest book at Kuthodaw Pagoda in Mandalay. I loved the outdoor days, the cruise on the Irrawaddy to Mingun and Sagaing, hiking and cycling in Kalaw and the day out on Inle Lake seeing the fishermen at work, their bamboo homes, floating gardens and the various cottage industries. I also enjoyed time roaming the towns of Bagan, Kalaw and Nyangshwe and their various adjoining villages and cottage industries. However, I found the pace of this trip far too slow, particularly in Yangon and Bagan. I am aware the trip is labelled leisurely/moderate, however for me, the first part of the trip spent far too much time on the air conditioned bus. I expected the highlight of this trip to be Bagan, in fact I was desperately disappointed with the 2.5 days spent in Bagan. We spent the two full days on the bus visiting nine temples, Mount Popa and a sunset temple, with only 40 mins allocated for a walk in the temple forest. I would have expected a full day of walking or cycling amongst the temples. Bagan has 4000-5000 temples, we drove past them! At some point in the future I hope to be able to go back and do it properly. I also felt the pace in which we visited in particular the Scwedagon Pagado and the inside of temples in Bagan was far too slow, there was far too much pausing and walking slowly.

A fabulous holiday showcasing all of Myanmar's tourist hot spots. From the city of Yangon - visiting the spectacular Shwedagon Pagoda, to the plains of Bagan with thousands of ancient pagodas, Mandalay - a river trip on the Ayeyarwady River, Kalaw - trekking in the mountains through fields of cabbages and pine forests, and Inle Lake with the houses on stilts, floating gardens & leg rowing fishermen.

The trip and all its activities was a great way to be introduced to the beauties of Myanmar. From the grandeur of the Shwedagon pagoda in Yangon to the abundance of temples in Bagan, best seen from an early morning balloon flight. From the village artisan industries on Inle Lake to the sunrise over U Bein Bridge. This trip does its best to give an insight into the varied splendours of the emerging travel location.
