Burma trip review

With perfect timing after hearing today that Suu Kyi will be running for Parliament in the April Burma elections, we have just received this wonderful trip review from a client hot off one of our Burma tours.

What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?:

The Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon was endlessly fascinating, the myriad 11th-13th century temples at Bagan were an amazing sight, and swimming in the warm Indian ocean with the other members of the group while the sun went down over the sea was great fun, but I think that my favourite experience was the optional canoe trip on Inle Lake. I always enjoy boat trips, but in a canoe there is no engine noise, you glide soundlessly along, watching the locals in the floating villages carrying out their normal daily activities without disturbing them, and enjoying the beautiful scenery in peaceful tranquility. You also get to observe the unique rowing technique of the Inle lake boatmen at close quarters, using their feet as pivots while they push the oar through the water.

What did you think of your tour leader?:

Very cheerful and good natured. No problems with organisation

Sum your holiday up in one sentence:
