Reviews

  • Rose Garden Hotel, Yangon - "Great hotel and service"

    Rooms are clear and clean. Service is good and same goes for breakfast. The only negative point of this hotel may be the location but I am not sure if others are any better. Anyhow taxi is very easy to find and cheap (2 USD) to go to nearby restaurants.

  • Thazin Garden Hotel, Bagan - "Great hotel with its own stupa"

    Taken to this hotel at the end of our tour and what a beautiful place to stay. Beautiful bedrooms and our beds were decorated with flowers. Ate one night in the garden with the Stupa lit by candles. Great breakfasts, attentive staff, a lovely pool and beautiful garden made this a great place to stay.

  • Amata Inle Resort, Inle Lake - "Amazing place and wonderful hospitality"

    This resort is marvellous, there is a huge garden and a beatiful pool. But the most amazing thing is the staff. They treated us really in a special way, they prepared for us a cake and a lot of attentions for our honey moon. We felt like home :)

  • Anantara Hua Hin Hotel, Hua Hin - "A truly wonderful stay"

    The hotel is very clean and chic. As it is located in the garden, the hotel has a truly wonderful atmosphere. The staff are very polite and nice people. The food was the best we had ever eaten. Anantara has no bad sides.

  • Novotel Phuket Karon Beach Resort, Phuket - "Stay terrific!"

    I recently stayed in Novotel Hotel,Q.C. and it was a terrifc stay. Amenities and rooms are unique and well updated in terms of interior. Staff are friendly and Cafe serves good quality food at breakfast. Pool was suitable for families especially if you have toddlers. It's safe for kids and convenient.

Journey to Mystical Burma & Thailand Beach Stay

Itinerary

Day 1 - You’ll be transferred to your first hotel – Rose Garden Hotel, where you’ll stay for one night. After settling in, you’ll do some sightseeing in Yangon – including Strand Road, Yangon Harbour, and Botathaung Pagoda. Afterwards, you’ll visit Chinatown, the Indian Quarter, and Sule Pagoda. In the afternoon, you’ll visit Bogyoke Market, Kandawgyi Lake, and enjoy the sunset at Shwedagon Pagoda.

Day 2 - You’ll catch a flight to Bagan and be taken to your next hotel – Thazin Garden Hotel. After this, you’ll be taken on a tour of a local market and visit important temples and pagodas. Afterwards, you’ll go to a local craftman’s house and receive a lesson in lacquering. The day will culminate in visits to manuha temple, Nanpaya Temple, and the UNESCO site of Gubyaukgyi.

Day 3 - After breakfast, you’ll travel to Minnanthu Village by horse cart. Here, you’ll visit Tayoke Pyay, Payathonzu, Nandamanya Temples, and Kyat Kan Cave Monastery. After this, you will visit local farming houses around Bagan. In the afternoon, enjoy an excursion to the beautiful Nat Htaung Kyaung monastery.

Add a Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Flight from just £245 per person!

Float high above thousand-year-old pagodas and the mighty Ayeyarwaddy River as the sun rises slowly from the horizon. Take in the misty fields and temples as you witness the magic Bagan has to offer. One of the most remarkable sights in Asia, the flight duration is approximately 45 minutes to an hour - depending on wind and air currents and other local factors. Balloons team will pick you up from the hotel and transfer you to the launch site. Upon landing, enjoy a glass of champagne and a light snack before being transferred back to your hotel.

Day 4 - You’ll catch a flight to Heho, where you’ll be transferred to Nyaung Shwe – on the edge of Inle Lake. Here, you’ll stay at the Amata Inle Resort. You’ll go on a boat journey to Indein, passing through quaint villages, scenic trees, and teak houses built on stilts. You’ll tour the area on foot and go on strolls through the towns before returning to the lake.

Day 5 - Explore a wonderful rotating market (subject to arrival day) and watch the local people buy and sell wares. You will then go on a boat trip on Inle Lake – stopping off at famous pagodas. After this, you’ll visit Nampan Village, Inpawkhon Village and take in several handcraft classes – including one where you can make a Burmese cigar. Finally, you’ll stop at Nga Phe Kyaung Monastery before returning to the hotel.

Day 6 - You catch a return flight back to Yangon and travel to Dala Village via ferry. A striking contrast to Yangon with its limited urban development and village feel, you’ll be taken on a tour by trishaw, a three-wheeled bicycle taxi. You’ll make a stop at a traditional family-run candle factory and a monastery. If time permits, you can also visit the Chu Chu shop - a workshop and gallery that makes the most beautiful recycled products.

Day 7 - You will catch your return flight home.

Myanmar (Burma)

A less-visited Asian country than the nearby lands of Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia, Myanmar (previously known as Burma) has lots of authentic charm and untouched landmarks to offer visitors. A vast country full of tradition and year-round great weather, you can find lots of delicious food and natural scenery that will last long in the memory. Local cuisine is a mix of flavours and ingredients visitors will know from neighbouring countries, but one dish which is very specific to Myanmar is its tea leaf salad – a dish made up of nuts, tea leaves, and shrimp sauce. Meals are cheap throughout the country and can be eaten in a variety of fine-dining establishments, street food stalls, and cafés, depending on where you are. The country’s largest, and most-visited, city is Yangon and it offers a number of cultural must-sees. It’s numerous pagodas more than match offerings found in the popular city of Bangkok, while the crowds are much smaller – making for an easier day trip. Those wanting to revel in the peaceful side of the country will find solace in Bagan and Inle Lake – both of which are rife with stunning scenery and ancient sites. A popular pastime in Bagan is renting an e-bike and seeing it at your own pace. Southeast Asia is known as an affordable option for holiday and Myanmar is no different – providing some top-notch facilities and accommodation at reasonable prices.
