review 3 Aug 2015

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The best part for me was the rides around Inle Lake; really peaceful and interesting riding and the lake a source of life for so much. Great bikes and great group all added to the experience.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Go with the flow; if you choose Monsoon season be prepared to get very very wet; that said it was part of the experience and part of life in Myanmar so it didn't really detract. Just take quick dry clothes and several pairs of shoes/rubber ones help.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes - very little carbon emissions but I do wish hotels would adopt the no change sheets and towels policy. Only a few were up to world standards on this.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Great; for my first ride it was probably a few days too long as the last days had no riding which was kind of boring after such a great trip.
