Discover Myanmar (Burma)

This tour provided a wonderful overview of Myanmar - citylife; temples; countryside; friendly, welcoming people and generally, delicious food. In order for this to happen, there were many early morning starts and long days - an 8.00 am start was considered a luxury! The transportation and connections were excellent, including the internal flights. Overall, the hotels were better than expected. The tour has left us with a desire to explore Mayanmar further.

Fabulous Myanmar

This is a full on trip around Myanmar. Be prepared for some very early morning starts and little or no down time,but it's worth it as Myanmar has a lot to offer. The country is full of surprises from the beautiful Inle Lake with the fantastic boat rides around the various villages, to the areas around Kalaw with stunning scenery. The temperature can drop considerably in the Kalaw region so take something warm, but what a fab heated pool to counteract the change in temperature; if you are lucky enough to stay in the Pine Hill Resort. Here we went on a fantastic walk with 2 local guides, and spent time with the local villagers eating a scrumptious lunch. I found I didn't spend as much money as specified in the trip notes. Take dollars as pounds are hard to change,make sure they are pristeen but initially change up $200 and see how you go.

Myanmar is just gearing up for tourism, currently the hotels are in place and the basic infrastructure is there. As with similar tours of the Far East you will be become templed out , but they are impressive The people are friendly and willing to haggle over the price One strange thing is they drive Right Hand drive cars/buses on the right hand side of the road (Think about that a bit), this means that when getting out of a Coach your stepping into the road

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.
