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

All of it! The guides were all amazing, the hotels were fantastic and the sights and activities were just brilliant! Favourite places would have to be Shwedagon pagoda, Bagan plain, the Green Hill Valley elephant camp, Ngapali beach and the pagodas of Mandalay.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Don't be shy about eating the local food (none of our party of 8 got a dodgy tummy), try all forms of transport (including sleeper train), dress respectfully and embrace a country that is new to the western world. Take a couple if football shirts to give to your favourite guide or hotel staff. It is easy to stay in touch with home if you need to as everywhere has wifi!

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

The Green Hill valley elephant camp is a great example of conservation supported by tourism and well worth a visit to get up close to these majestic creatures. Our vacation benefitted local people through providing an income.

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

It was definitely a "trip of a lifetime" vacation. It was full-on but we still managed to have downtime in the hotel swimming pools most days (important for the children). If there weren't so many other countries that we still wanted to see we would go back to Myanmar in a heartbeat!

It was all great. Temples in Bagan, boat ride and views over Lake Inle.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Much of Myanmar great for family traveling. Comfortable hotels, great food. Warm welcome. Train from Yangon to Bagan bumpy but really fun!

Yes. But would value more information particularly with regard to hotels.

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

Brilliant. Guides and our agent were really very very good. Logistics perfect.
