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

Trek in Kalaw and the day on Inle Lake.

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

Not to be put off visiting Myanmar in any way; the people are genuinely very friendly and there was no evidence of any reasons not to visit (as per some media reports.)

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

The vacation certainly benefited local people as all excursions, trips and visits to restaurants were provided by the local people. Not so sure about reducing environmental impact as there were no obvious alternatives to some of trips (eg flying from Inle Lake to Yangon, or buying water in plastic bottles). It would be great if the local people were more aware about the impacts of litter (particularly the impact of plastic litter) on the enviroment, but I am not sure how tourists can have an impact here.

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

Excellent value for money and extremely well organised.

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

It’s hard to tell. The vacation has been amazing: the group was getting along very well, the tour guide did an amazing job and we saw one of the most beautiful lands on heart with the kindest people you will ever meet.

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

Bring just temple clothes and flip flops. Forget shorts and tank tops.

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

Yes, I do. Myanmar lives on tourism but unfortunately doesn’t have enough. Burmese people are the nicest I have ever met and I am glad I have been able to contribute, even just a little bit. We reduced our environmental impact as much as we could and I believe we’ve been an example for several locals too.

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

One of the best experiences in my life. Thank you!
