Please review your overall experience and what your highlights were

The tour far exceeded my expectations and provided me with a 3.5 week experience which will change my life in a totally unexpected way. I never expected to see the beauty in both the people and country and the energy and passion of Jue, our tour leader, only heightened the magical experience and most importantly the FUN I had on this tour. The entire trip was a highlight and it's too difficult to name 1 excursion or place we visited as an exception to this. I was impressed with the quality of accommodation and food, efficiency of transport, professionalism of the tour leader and magic of Burma. I would highly recommend Explore to my friends and family and Burma as a must visit destination if you want to discover a world untouched by consumerism.

What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

I loved the golden rock as we had a bit of fun with visitors to the rock as they wanted to take photos of us and we them; even the monks wanted to join. I must admit I wasn’t able to walk up to the rock so I had four boys with their stretchers took me up and felt like the queen of Sheba. Also I loved the remote villages; the children are so sweet and content with their life.

Niy

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Niy was brilliant, was very caring and helpful. He also had a lot of knowledge of the places we visited and the beach extension was at a lovely hotel and beach.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Take a comfortable pair of shoes and don't bring good clothes for day as very dusty.

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

Some of the hotels need a bit of refurbishing, mainly the bathrooms.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

Opening the curtains of my hotel room to see, beyond the golden statues beneath my veranda, a golden pagoda on the far side of the lake at Taungoo, while Buddhist chanting echoed across the water.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

"There were numerous highlights of this tour to Myanmar. Most of the temples were quite stunning. The local people feel that old things are unlucky so like to show you preserved temples and stupas. Some of them were very impressive but my favourite area was Bagan and the old ""red brick"" temples.
There was a great deal of travel by boat which was a very relaxing way to view the country. The two days spent at Inle Lake were the best water based days.Everything from the leg rowers to the fishermen and the floating gardens were all a sight to behold.
The days on the beach at the end were the perfect way to relax and review all that you had seen."

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

Although this tour visits areas not otherwise covered by other Explore trips the highlights for us were still the almost magical atmosphere surrounding the temples of Began and being whisked around the sites of Inlay Lake in long-tailed mud skiffs. I should too mention the beach extension, we particularly sought, which on this trip visited Sunny Paradise Resort at Ngwe Saung. It was idyllic and well worth the interesting five hour drive across the Irrawaddy delta.
