review 5 Jan 2018

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

Ballooning over Bagan, cooking at Inke Lake and the visit to Schwedagon temple in Yangon. The hotels with the exception of the Clover Hotel in Yangon were brilliant and all very helpful.

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

Get a very clear programme from the Myanmar travel operator as communication and the interface did not work in Mandalay and Inle Lake. Information was missing and/ or limited leaving us to 2nd guess what was going on and what we were responsible for!!

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

Benefited local people - yes but not sure about reducing environmental impact and support for conversation. The local operator could make this clearer as this wasn't obvious.

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

4 stars out of 5.

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

I love the people of Myanmar....inner beauty, friendly and welcoming. My favourite memory was "A Day in Mandalay" cooking class..... Picked up at our hotel in the morning (only 5 on the tour) travelled to a traditional tea house... then to market to choose our vegetables and fruit, cooking class in a local village, nap then bicycle ride in the country side and sunset finish. We were given the recipes and spices to take home.... Amazing day.

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

Pack simple and light....with clothes that can be washed out and dry fast (including shoes- I had crocks that were great for puddles/mud when it rained) Women Must cover your shoulders and no shorts or short skirts. I actually purchased a longui for next to nothing.. It was cool and comfortable in the heat.

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

Yes, this is very important to me

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

Fabulous
