Itinerary & Notes
Min Gala Ba! Welcome to Myanmar. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm today. Please look for a note in the hotel lobby or ask reception where it will take place. We'll be collecting insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so please ensure you bring these details to provide to your leader. If you have free time to explore before the meeting, we recommend stepping out onto the streets of Yangon. Why not take the Yangon Circle Line train for a three-hour local journey, or head over to Bogyoke Market and haggle with the locals? There’s also Sule Paya Pagoda, a 2000-year-old golden temple, and the Gems Museum, which houses some of the world’s largest sapphire, ruby and jade pieces. You may need a taxi to travel between some of these attractions; a one-way trip should cost about MMK 4,000. Notes: You may wish to arrive a early so you arrive in time to attend the group meeting today, and have free time to explore Yangon. We'll be happy to book additional accommodation for you (subject to availability).

Everything expected from the trip
       
A wonderful trip, with a good pace to it but with plenty of free time in key locations for relaxation or further exploration as wanted. The leader - Aung Alex - was outstanding - highly organised, friendly and helpful. He was incredibly hard-working and reliable and made the trip run really smoothly, as well as givi g a wonderful insight into his fascinating country. Myanmar is absolutely stunning and I would highly recommend visiting.
