Traveller Stories: Burma, Where Do I Begin…

“Good morning lovely ladies, where do I begin....... such an amazing, incredible and life enhancing trip.” This is how Sheila’s email started when she wrote to our office in London about her Myanmar Adventure holiday in early October. If you’re thinking of planning a trip to the Southeast Asian country, perhaps Sheila’s Burma holiday review may be helpful to get a better feel for the trip.

Travel Guides in Burma

“All our guides were really good, the timings of picking us up and the meeting points were faultless. Their enthusiasm and knowledge was excellent. Clearly all of the guides were extremely well educated with a very good command of the English language, which made listening to all their invaluable explanations of sites which we visited an utter joy.”

Every single day was filled with countless wonderful experiences, and each evening Amanda and I thought our Myanmar holiday couldn't get any better, but each day brought new wonders and exciting things to see and take part in.

Magical Moments in Myanmar

“An eclectic contrasting two weeks of magical moments including deeply spiritual moments in temples to riding electric scooters around Bagan, being on horse-drawn carriage along muddy tracks visiting 11th century temples, to whooshing up Inle Lake on a local boat, we certainly were able to immerse ourselves in real life in Myanmar.”

WWII Legacy

“It was of special significance for me to undertake this trip as my father had served with the RAF during the Burma campaign throughout the Second World War. I have photographs of him in Yangon (Rangoon as it was then) and Mandalay. I have no doubt that when we were walking in the foothills of the Shan Mountains, that it was here where a lot of 'action' took place – I could feel his spirit with me. Our guide told us that farmers are still digging up old Japanese rifles, engines, ammunition, helmets etc as there used to be an air base approximately 2 hours from where we were. You might imagine how emotional that was for me.”

With Sheila’s review we will improve this Burma holiday even more and we hope that reading her experiences help you better understand what to expect of our Myanmar Adventure holiday.
