Taking the hot air balloon over Bagan is an absolute must.

Afternoon Tea at the Strand Yangon was a great experiance, book in advance.

There are a couple of long travelling days, bring something to keep you occupied ( book, MP3 player, tablet etc )

Bring new, crisp, undamaged US$ for changing, as changing older notes can be difficult.

Bagan with the range of temples, pagodas and Inle lake with the villages and boats- such amazing contrasts.
Remember to bring a warm layer for the nights in Kalaw.

Think about booking a trip that has been refreshed. This one felt like it had been run, unchanged for four years.

Highlights, in no particular order: Burmese food, Burmese people, Balloons over Bagan, diversity of means of transport, trek in the Kalaw region, cruise on the Irrawaddy (Mandalay - Bagan), Lake Inle, and lots more...! Not to forget: the rave in Nyaung Shwe! It was festival season in Burma...

Tips: Expect to visit lots of temples! They're all different!

the leader organised all sorts of extras - seeing an annual festival , extra sunset in began at the temple, extra temples in began , royal palace in mandalay, colonial buildings in kalaw, blacksmith in inle lake etc. these did not impinge on timings and should be added to the program as It would have been a bit thin without these and great things would have been missed.

tips - if you want to cycle in Began do so at the start and end of the day, it is cooler ,less busy and less people and take bike lights/ reflective sash etc so you can cycle safely in low light conditions - street lights are limited

take money to buy things and your credit card as the guide didn't really tell us about how much things would cost or what extent the purchase opportunities would be and several people missed out on things . in the bigger outlets you can pay with dollars or CC if over a certain amount usually $100 us

get your injections sorted out about a month in advance

Go to Myanmar with an open heart and mind and swallow up all it has to offer with all your senses.

The people all over Myanmar. From their happy, welcoming, smiling faces, to their generosity, curtsey and politeness. I loved all the different Pagodas and temples, and that everyday faith and superstition go hand in hand. Our tour would not have been complete and a success if it had not been for the amazing organisational skills, knowledge, supreme patience and sense of humour of our tour guide, Zar Zar and her trainees, Su & Ei.
