Highlights include Shwedagon pagoda in Yangon, the boat trips on Inle Lake, Bagan and Mount Popa. The extension to Ngapali is well worth doing and provides a very nice way to relax for a couple of days at the end of the trip.

If going on the trip when I went (Xmas) you need to be prepared for cool evenings and mornings in some locations particularly Kalaw (where there is no heating despite the temperatures) so make sure to pack some warm clothes.

HIGHLIGHTS
1. Inle Lake culture
2. Fishing village near Ngapali beach resort
3. Bagan & visits to monasteries and pagodas throughout
4. Walking trek in Shan highlands
5. Train / boat rides
6. Chinatown & National Museum, Yangon
7. The local festivities which we happened to come across - including political rallies
8. There was a good range of interesting food, especially Chinese and Indian
9. U Bein bridge at sunset


LESS GOOD ASPECTS
1. The wine tour was a low point: very expensive, uninformative and poor quality wines.
2. The second horse-and-cart ride to the sunset viewing in Bagan was spurious. The so-called photographic opportunities were not available from the cart (but would have been available from the bus).
3. The visit to the Bagan "village" was stage-managed tourism.

SUGGESTIONS
Suggest visit to National Museum is at the end of the trip as the exhibits will make more sense.

FINALLY
We had a wonderful leader who was extremely informative, good fun, helpful and kind. He rescued a lost camera left in a restaurant, and provided a lovely birthday celebration for one of us.

If you like Thailand, this is better, less touristy, great temples, great beaches, great people. The food is more akin to indian than thai....its different. I very much enjoyed this trip.

I'd definitely recommend adding the beach extension to the trip. 3 days on a beautiful beach in a luxury hotel was the perfect, relaxing ending to an amazing holiday. And hire a bike at some point. We did this at Inle lake and within minutes were in the countryside, exploring tiny villages and meeting the most friendly, hospitable people you are ever likely to encounter.
The variety and pace of the tour was perfect.
We were lucky to have a great group and tour guide, Ei, who never stopped smiling, was incredibly knowledgeable and couldn't do enough for us.

Was a wonderful holiday - well organised and busy. Some of the accommodation was quite basic and the included lunches were not that nice but overall I would highly recommend this trip. My only complaint is that although I had booked my own flights, I did pay extra to be collected from the airport on arrival - this did not happen and it was rather daunting having to find a taxi driver to take me to the hotel in an unknown Country. I did report this to my tour guide but have never heard anything back from Explore.
