review 19 Nov 2016

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

It's difficult to choose one moment. The train ride from Pwin Oo Lwin to Hsipaw was wonderful. Spending days on Inle Lake was fabulous. Seeing the ancient city of Bagan from the basket of the hot air balloon was magic!

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

Try not to do too much on any given day. Take some time to sit and watch people as they go about their daily lives. Don't stick strictly to any given itinerary.

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

Local people were employed as guides and drivers. We supported local crafts people as much as possible. However, it is difficult to ease the impact on the cultural and physical environment when tourism is encouraged 'in a big way' in such a fragile developing country.

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

Fabulous!
