Dear Ms Hong,
Happy New Year to you as well.
My family and I had a wonderful trip to Myanmar. All the arrangements were first-rate and fantastic. The guides were super helpful and everything went according to plan. In a few cases, we made some small changes locally and everyone was super-nice and accommodating. All in all, we had a great time and I am very satisfied and glad with your help.
I filled out the feedback form - everything else was excellent. Please let me know if there is a place in social media (TripAdvisor or somewhere else) where I can provide positive feedback about Mynanmar Travel.

We had a wonderful trip, thanks to you for making excellent arrangements and choosing nice hotels.
Vietnam was exceedingly beautiful - more than we had imagined. We wish we had more time in Laos.
We knew this before starting the trip.
I will recommend your agency to my friends who are interested in Vietnam. One of those friends is
Dileep Bhandarkar. He may write to you.
It was nice meeting you in person, and thanks for the gifts. We will cherish them.

Hi Binh Yen,
Actually we didn’t get home until 12/11 as we spent time in Thailand and HK after our tour in Myanmar.
I do apologize for responding to you so late.
We had a great trip. The guides and drivers at each of our 4 stops were professional and did a great job. The tour itinerary was what we were looking for and we had a wonderful trip. Thanks to you as well.

Myanmar Discovery – 16-30 Nov 2016
Thanks Ms Hong.
I would like you to know that my wife and I enjoyed our trip to Myanmar immensely. We found the tour which you had arranged to be excellent, the hotels (with the exception of the Mountain Top at Kyaikhtiyo, which is rather ordinary but in a very good location) to be first class and the guides generally to be very knowledgeable and informative. We cannot thank you enough for the care and consideration which you devoted to our holiday. We will certainly
recommend your agency to our friends who propose travelling to Myanmar.

Myanmar Discovery from 18 Nov to 29 Nov 2016
Dear Binh Yen
We would like to thank you for our well organized trip to Myanmar. All went extremely well.
The guides were in general well prepared, willing to adjust the program according to our wishes and nice people trying to make our stay memorable.
The cars had good standard and the drivers brought us safely through the traffic without big risks.
Hotels were nice and some above our expectations.
We knew when we planned the tour that it was to short but that was the number of days we could spend. However, we think that we got to see some of the variety of Myanmar, people and landscape.
Myanmar is a lovely country with smiling people, proud of their homeland..
This all together made the trip wonderful and we will remember it for a long time.
We will not hesitate to recommend you or your company to anyone who is planning a trip to Myanmar.

MYANMAR HIGHLIGHTS (Yangon – Bagan – Inle Lake) from 18 Nov to 23 Nov 2016
Dear Mr Hieu Ha,
Thank you very much for your email.
The entire trip when very smoothly. Thanks to your good coordination and hard work.
We made new friends along the way.
The guide and driver at Bagan, Idle Lake and Yangon was excellent.
They are punctual, polite and easy to get along.
The people of Myanmar we met are among the most humble people I have met.
The accommodation was as expected. We enjoyed our stay.
One of my favourite photo shot at Bagan.
We hope to use your excellent tour service in future. Perhaps Vietnam this time.

Highlights of Myanmar 5 – 14 Nov 2016
Thanks for the contacts and name!
Everything is amazing and also the guides!! Aye in particular she is super nice, good and lovely!
So no worries for the hotel in Yangon, we will stay at Royal Park as planned. No need to cancel and book Chatrium anymore.
Also Dida in Bagan was amazing, very good english and it was very fun with her!!! We loved the time with her.
Many thanks again
We are very happy with the trip and the quality of everything. Dida in Bagan was absolutely the best guide we ever had , engaging, fun, well prepared and great english
At Inle lake we love evrything but we felt.the trip to the far away village was not worth so many hours of navigation on this pretty unconfortable boat. We would suggest to put extra pillows on the back of the chairs to.make it more confortable as well.
Overall we are extremly happy with the trip, the agency and the country.

Kalaw Adventure (Yangon – Kalaw – Inle Lake) from 06 Nov to 13 Nov 2016
Dear Mr. Hieu Ha,
Thank you very much for your warm greetings. I must apologise for not giving you some words so late until now.
It was a paradoxical that I dislocated my left shoulder accidentally inside the flight from Heho Airport to Yangon in the evening of 12 November 2016 (around 1715hrs.), just before took off. The crews of the flight requested me to leave the flight as I was not suitable to fly with them back to Yangon from Heho. On this occasion, I left the flight at once and sought medical service at once. Fortunately, I was admitted to a hospital in Taunggyi township which was for foreigners. Everything backed to normal at about 2015hrs but I needed to stay in Taunggyi Hotel on 12 November 2016 and paid extra for the hotel.
The airline company was also very helpful and they let me change the flight to 13 November 2016 without any extra charge. I went back to Yangon in the afternoon of 13 December 2016 and your guide, Mr. Lin and the driver pick me up in Yangon Airport. I also changed my flight to Hong Kong on 14 November 2016 insted of 15 November 2016, one day earlier back to Hong Kong.
Your guides in Yangon, Heho, Kalaw and Inle Lake were very helpful, friendly and responsible. The guide in Kalaw provided assistance for me at once when she learnt that I hurted myself accidentally.
Please pass my greetings and my heartfelf thankness to you and all your colleagues.
Hopefully I can have long holidays next year and I must visit Myanmar again.
All the best.
Mr. Chan from Hong Kong
Myanmar & Laos Discovery from 17 Oct to 12 Nov 2016
I wanted to take the time to thank you for helping make our Myanmar/ Laos trip such a success. The trip was wonderful and everything worked out just perfectly. Guides were always punctual and knowledgeable. The best guides hands down were in Mandalay and Inle Lake. They went above and beyond the call of duty and were so friendly and very service oriented. Although all the others were good, with possibly the guide in Yangon who spent some time napping in the car and needed to be reminded about what things were on out itinerary on a regular basis. Nice enough but seemed tired most of the time. As for the trip, the only hotel that didn't live up to its rating was in Mandalay. Hotel is a bit run down and restaurants are weak. Also, we probably would recommend that Vientiane Laos not be a place that would be recommended. It would have been better had we skipped it, and flown from Luang Prabang directly to Pakse. The drive from Luang Prabang to Vientiane was way to long. But we did enjoy the Plain of Jars. The guide in Luang Prabang was good but be needs to be a little more careful in taking foreigners to eat in some very local places that food preparation/sanitary conditions are questionable. But overall we had a fantastic trip and would highly recommend your travel services. Thank you for your excellent work. Carlos Garcia

Myanmar discovery 9 days 8 nights” From 2nd Nov 2016 – 10th Nov 2016
We have now finished our trip and I want to thank you and all the staff in Vietnam and Myanmar for delivering a first-class holiday for us. Everything went according to plan and was very efficiently managed. We were pleased with our hotels which were very nice and provided good service and with our guides and drivers who were very professional and friendly.
The English of Mr. Nwe Nwe Win (guide in Yangon) is quite good. Speaking English is still somewhat of a challenge for our two guides in Bagan and Inle Lake, but we managed to get by without any signifiant problems. I would still recommend all three guides in the future.
I am copying this to your representative in Yangon, Mr. Aukng Soe Thu, for his information.
My son and daughter and their families still want to visit Vietnam and Myanmar at some point in the future so I will make sure they contact you when they plan to go to see if you can make them a good offer. Please keep on file the itineraries for our trips to both Vietnam and Myanmar for future reference when making arrangements for them.
Many thanks again for all your help and best regards,

Dear Hieu Ha,
My husband and I love what you suggested for our Myanmar experience and we are already very much looking forward to it. Your latest hotel suggestions fit perfectly to our taste. We would like to book the Option with Kyaikhtiyo trip.
And I would like to add a feedback, If I may, that you might want to forward to your boss:
You did an excellent job, not only in coming back with your responses very quickly but also in demonstrating high customer orientation. I felt that you were quickly establishing a very good customer realtionship and I have developed a lot of trust in your work. Were quickly we put other offers we had aside. I work as a trainer for communication and leadership topics in Germany and as an expert I want to tell you that your communication style is excellent! Great first impression of Myanmar and its people. And: Your company should be very glad to have you in sales department!
Please tell us what you need from us to have a deal.
Kind regards & viele Grüße from Germany with snow today,
Dear Hieu Ha,
Everything went great and despite jet lag we spent the afternoon walking around in the city and spent the evening in exciting china town.
Naing Zaw is very symathetic and well informed. we are looking very much forward to spending the next 2 days with him! Thank you for arranging.
Viele Grüße aus Yangon
Hallo Hieu Ha,
We experienced a wonderful day in Yangon together with Naing Zaw. He is really a precious diamond and shared a lot of interesting background knowledge about the history and buddhism with us.The Sherwagon Pagoda is beautiful!
And we also met your colleague Aung Soe Thu who is also very friendly.
Viele Grüße from a great day,
Hallo Hieu Ha,
We had a grwat day visiting the golden rock. Although sonfar Shwedagon pagoda in Yangon is still our favorite. the atmosphere at golden rock is not as inspiring as I hoped for. Therefore it was completely okay for me to not spend the night at the top.
We are looking fordard to spend some more hours in Yangon.and we would really love to take Nain Zaw with us to Bagan ? the next colleague could not be better ?
And we love to spend some hours on our own per day. having a foot massage for example. so we have found the right agreement with Nain Zaw.
Viele Grüße aus dem sonnigen Kyaikhtiyo
Hallo Hieu Ha,
We enjoyed a great day yesterday in Bago with Naing Zaw and had to say goodbye to him.
Yes, you are absolutely right: Bagan is very different but it is a perfect mix. We enjoy the landscape and pagodas. Kyaw is very nice and very knowledgable. we enjoyed a very good day so far.
And we are very happy with blue bird hotel. it is fantastic. by the way: also the loft in yangon has been fantastic. accord hotel and eternity hotel have been ok, but we knew it before that it will not wow us but lower our expenses.
We are very much looking forward to our balloon experience tomorrow early morning.
Herzliche Grüße aus dem schönen Bagan,
Hallo Hieu Ha,
After 2 days cruising we are now in Mandalay and online again.
Bagan was fantastic - especially the Balloon flight. We had an amazing view and really enjoyed it. and we were really lucky: most flights had to be cancelled during the past 3 weeks because of rain. we experienced heavy rain the evening before but sunrise and some clouds in the morning - perfect.
And we liked the horse carriage a lot.
The Blue Bird Hotel was an excellent joice. very recommendable.
There was only 1 thing we did not like to be honest: the puppet dinner show. It appeared unexpecedly on our program and we went there to be respectful. however it is not our kind of setting we like: very touristic, too many especially older people....
Fortunately it did not take long.
The cruise was good for relaxing. we had a spacious room and the food was good. the boat is nice but quite old which has not been a problem for us but for a lot of the other guests: during rain water came into some rooms through the ceilings....Therefore itt might be not the best idea to recommend this boat to other tourists without risking complaints.
Our guide here in Mandalay is very symathetic and does his job in a very nice way. I do not know how to spell his name correctly.... We already had some great conversations. And the Hotel by the Red Canal is excellent. thank you for getting the room confirmed. we really enjoy this luxury after 2 days on the boat.
We are looking forward to our next 3 days in Mandalay.
Good evening Ha Hieu,
We enjoyed a great day in Mingun and Mandalay. Our guide balanced in a good way information and just walking around. he is a really valuable addition to our vacation.
Please find attached my favorid fotos of the day
We will have our day wirhout progam tomorrow and are looking forward to being a bit lazy.... to get energy for our last excursion in myanmar the day after tomorrow.
Enjoy your more relaxed week and use your energy wisely ?
Joyful greetings from the buddhistic center of Myanmar
Dear Hieu Ha,
Yes we enjoyed the trip very much and alsonthe last excursion yesterday to Pyin Oo Lwin. the drive was really worth it: to leave the city, enjoy the beautiful landscape, visit the local market (my husband bought different types of green tee - looking at the amount of tee I assume we will drink it all over 2017 ?) and we loved the botenical garden and had a long walk there. waterfall was nice to - however because of the still continuing rains a bit brown.
Now we are ready to leave Myanmar and will take a lot of wunderful impressions with us. and it was you, that made it happen. So: thank you so much again for dour wonderful support and the nice way you did it. I never wrote deliberately so many e mails and fotos to a travel agent and had such a pleasant persoanl communication. you are really special!
We will enjoy Bangkoknfor another 2 days. A city we inow very well in the meantime.
And then we will have to face it: to go back from 30 degrees to 3 degrees and already a bit snow in Germany. great that we could prolong the summer in Myanmar.
... one addition:
Pleade send our warmest greetings to Naing Zaw. He was our favorite tour guide. Not only because of his knowledge but especially for his sympathetic personality, philosophical and spiritual way and personal discussions we had about politics, buddhism etc. He is also special
Hallo Hieu Ha,
We had a good flight and arrived this morning. everything went fine. it is really almost 30 degree difference - increadible and it micht take some days to get used to it.
It was a great time and we might go in contact with you again some day when we might decide to come to vietnam.
Please continue to do your job with so much postive energy!

Captivating Myanmar Journey (31st Oct – 7th Nov 2016)
Thanks, Hue and many happy returns and also thanks for the Myanmar tour which was truly exceptional and exceeded all our expectations and one that we will highly recommend.
Mr. Terry O'Connor from Ireland
BEST OF MYANMAR & CAMBODIA From 26th Oct, 2016 to 06th Nov, 2016
* Despite of his excellent vocabulary, impressive knowledge and cheerful personality, our guide at Inle Lake had an English very hard to understand
* Our guide in Bagan: excellent! Charming personality, vast knowledge (we were amazed by all his knowledge about the temples in Bagan and the Buddhism in general and his way of doing his job. Cheers on him from Hungary!
1. Our accommodation in Battambang (Maisons Wat Kor 4*) was very remote from the city so unfortunately we had to skip the sightseeing and this point of the program completely :(
2. The trip from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville via Kampot on Route No. 3 was EXTREMELY tiring with those road conditions. Even with leaving at 7.30 a.m. we arrived to Sihanoukville around 4 p.m.(!), so we had to skip the visit at the pepper plantation in Kampot. In addition, we were blocked by the muddy and bumpy road, so we had to find another access to the cave of Phnom Chhnork (and we got lost) and spent more than 2.5 hours to visit the 7th century brick temple :(
3. For the whole trip from Siem Reap to Sihanoukville, we had a Mercedes van for 9 people — for just the two of us! A simple car (or a 4x4 jeep because of the muddy roads) might have been better and more efficient (faster and consuming less fuel and maybe costing less toll fee).
All in all, our recommendation would be as follows: from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville via the National Road No. 4. (3 hours). Then visiting Phnom Chhnork and/or Kampot / Kep and/or Bokor Mountain National Park FROM Sihanoukville (1-day excursion). In return, extend the stay in Sihanoukville with one more day.
4. As soon as Sihanoukville international airport will be FULLY operating, this road trip can be replaced by a domestic flight Phnom Penh / Sihanoukville and return (or even a flight from Sihanoukville to Bangkok!), saving a HUGE amount of time.
5. Our guide from Siem Reap had —logically— less knowledge of Phnom Penh and the southern region of the country—which is NOT his fault! So we would recommend to involve more than one guide for the whole trip in Cambodia, let's say one for the northern part and one for the southern region, for example a local guide from Sihanoukville for the 1-day excursion mentioned above. As we already visited Angkor Wat back in 2010, we would not have needed a guide from Siem Reap, specializing in Angkor Wat, but for example someone from Phnom Penh or with a larger field of knowledge.
However, all-in-all, we would like to say a HUGE thanks and give a warm round of applause for your team, guides and drivers, for the organization and all the sightseeing, landmarks, service and experience we had! :) We were very impressed, had the time of our lives and will certainly return to Myanmar! Thank you and see you on our next trip!

MYANMAR AUTHENTIC ADVENTURE From 24th Oct, 2016 to 05th Nov, 2016
Dear Ly An
Thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback on our recent trip to Myanmar. I am providing feedback this way as more detail is useful than the survey allows, and also I had some difficulty with the site. My comments are as follows:
The program was well arranged and provided variety. We appreciated the side visits to lacquer works, paper making/handicrafts, weaving, local product making such as sesame/peanut oil extraction, and local markets, as these things provide an insight into the economy at the local level. A suggestion we would make is to ask if clients have any specific interests. For example we (my wife being a community health nurse and myself a rural development specialist) are interested in schooling, medical services at the village level and agricultural production systems. Other people may have other interests but a question at the beginning when forming the program to find out a client’s background and a quick visit somewhere in the program to accommodate special interests might be worth considering.
We liked the flexibility of the driver/guide/small group approach. This allowed us to spend longer/shorter times at sites according to interest.
All the guides were good, well trained, well informed and had good information. They were always on time and each evening discussed the coming day’s program - and we liked that approach. They were each pleasant people we found easy to get on friendly terms with. They were also very considerate of our needs and abilities.
In NZ we are not used to tipping and a little guidance beforehand of the tipping expectations and the expected range would have been helpful. Each country is different I know and those in Myanmar were much less expecting than in some other places.
All airline travel worked as scheduled and any adjustments were well managed by the guides/local agents. The quality of vehicles and driving was also good.
All hotels were of a very good standard as is expected of four star - except for Mandalay where the hotel had to be changed because of a difficulty but was three star and not four. It was comfortable nevertheless. We were very happy with the standard of hotels.
We have been very satisfied with all the arrangements made for us by Myanmar Travel. It can be an unknown making arrangements on-line, especially as travel agents in NZ don’t seem very aware of Myanmar and travel companies there. However we would recommend Myanmar Travel to friends and our local travel agent as being a very responsive and helpful company where everything has gone smoothly.
I hope this is helpful to you - and thanks to yourself for making all the arrangements for an enjoyable trip.
We are thinking of visiting Japan in the autumn of 2017. Have you any suggestions for a travel company you would recommend for that country?
Brian & Lynne Hedley from New Zealand

We are now back home in Canada after stopping over in Hong Kong for 2 nights. Thank you very much for securing the reservations and organising the tour for us. We had a lovely time. Myanmar is a beautiful country with beautiful and friendly people. The food was delicious and the locales were splendid.
We were very happy with the tour guides. Each went out of the way to meet our expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact, some of my friends will be contacting you to arrange further trips. I have highly recommended you so hopefully, we will be working with you for future trips to South East Asia.
Take care and once again thank you very much.

Bagan Escape from 29 Oct to 01 Nov
Dear Ms. Binh,
Good day to you.
We are very pleased and delighted to the services that your agency had given us.
Everything is very much appreciated from day 1 to day 4.
We never expect to have a very nice service car to bring us to all places in Yangon & Bagan.
The JJ Bus is also like an airplane travelling on land. We can sleep comfortably while watching old movies.
Bagan Umbra Hotel is also a nice hotel with good always smiling staff but the breakfast had not much food to select.
It was a nearly perfect holiday except for the balloon ride which was cancelled due to bad wind.
All your staff (tour guides and drivers), had provided us very superb service.
Mr. Aung is a very friendly guy. Always giving us a good laugh.
He is very knowledgeable of your country. He is polite and very helpful.
We truly enjoy his company... very accommodating. We love him.
Mr. Tsu (Bagan) is also very knowledgeable of Bagan. He is very religious guy.
He is not as joyful as Mr. Aung but he is very serious in his works, like a father.
He is very patient with us especially when we take too long to take pictures.
He is also helpful and accommodating.
All the drivers are very polite but quite shy. They drive carefully and professionally.
Bagan is one of the enchanting places I've been.
With those awesome pagodas and temples.
I am amazed by your history and culture.
By the way, Myanmar food is also very delicious with reasonable price.
In behalf of my friends (Cherry & Glenda), THANK YOU SO MUCH for an awesome service and experience.
I will surely recommend your travel agency to other friends and colleagues.
Job well done... thumbs up.
Keep up the good job.
Zeny Roxas from Philippine
From Angkor Wat to Bagan from 18 Oct to 30 Oct 2016
We enjoyed working with Ms. Binh Yen, who couldn't have been more helpful! She made us feel very comfortable about using a agency which was outside of US.
One of the most memorable parts of our trip was our guides, we loved them all! and especially Jack in Cambodia! It gave us a personal glimpse into the lives of the people in Cambodia and Myanmar. They were flexible and we were able to made slight adjustments to our activities. Really we can't say enough good about the trip.
Really enjoyed taking advantage of the Spas in the Aureum Palace hotels and loved the Spa in the Victoria Angkor. They were, of course our favorites!
We have been telling all our friends about your agency and we are planning a trip with you to Laos and Vietnam in the future.
Thank you for making this the "trip of a life time"!!

MYANMAR DISCOVERY (Yangon – Kyaikhtiyo – Kalaw – Inle Lake – Mandalay – Hsipaw – Bagan) from 25 Sep to 15 Oct 2016
Guiding good at all places, drivers good at all places
Many interesting sightseeing events (less pagodas better)
Riding horse near Bagan very good (best event of the tour)
Mountain biking through Mandalay difficult because of traffic -> no good idea in the city
Mountain biking to Inle Lake very good nad in Bagan very good as well
Some guides should improve their English
Overall we are very satisfied with the organization, guides and driver

Myanmar Discovery from 02 Oct to 16 Oct 2016
Dear Ms. Yen
Just a few days since we returned from our trip to Myanmar.
We enjoyed very much the trip. The whole country is amazing. Their cultures, its people, its landscapes, monuments, beaches ... We do not usually travel with a tour as organized as it was this and we had some doubts at the beginning. However we are absolutely satisfied with the trip. We would like to thank you once again your work and professionalism and the very nice itinerary that you prepared for us.
My friend Leonardo and his wife also plan to travel to Myanmar soon. I've passed your email to him and I am sure he will be in touch with you soon.
If we plan another trip in the South East Asia area, we do not doubt to contact you and recomend your services to family and friends.
Thanks for everything.

Myanmar Authentic Adventure from 5 Oct – 15 Oct 2016
Dear Ms. Hong,
I just wanted to drop a few lines after concluding our visit to Yangon, in which both Win, the guide, and Mao, the driver, were excellent and friendly.
I especially wanted to commend Win. In addition to being an excellent guide, he is extremely knowledgeable, very helpful and remarkably professional. Win filled the two days we were here with activities, explanations and was very flexible to attend to our every request.
On a scale of 1-10 we would give Win a perfect 10 and a very high recommendation.
I simply cannot find words to describe the unbelievable and exquisite unique qualities of the guide we had in Inle Lake, Shan State and Kayah State - Nay Win from Hu Pin Transport Services. I have been traveling around the world for many many years, and Nay Win is by far the BEST guide that i have ever encountered, in any place, ever. Not only is he very knowledgeable, friendly and very experienced and superb and excellent as a guide, Nay Win is so enthusiastic about what he does and clearly loves his work, and this definitely shows in the superior quality of his guiding and the experience of traveling with him.
I will definitely recommend to anyone whom I know who is traveling in the area to only choose Nay Win as a guide, and I think that you would be doing your customers an excellent service if you only sent travellers to Nay Win and Hu Pin transport services.
I can only hope that our guide in Bagan will be even close to how successful Nay Win was. It makes the whole trip an entirely different experience.

Dear Hong Nguyen,
WE had a very pleasant stay in Myanmar.
The trip organisation was excellent and the Hotels too except the one near the golden rock. That was horrible!
The tour guides very professional, kind and friendly.
Your country is marvellous and people are always smiling. I met the most beautiful kids in the world and I took so many pictures of them.
We ate very well and discovered and tasted many things never seen before!!
And also shopping was great. We bought a lot and enjoyed very much!
We'll surely meet again. If I will trip an other time in that wonderful part of the world you'll be my choice.
Thanks for everything.

Dear Miss Nguyen,
Thank you so much for the trip arrangements made which i consider to be excellent.
I really loved the entire trip and experience with your agency.
Independent of my good experience with all the guides whom travelled with me, I do think it is important for me to highlight to the Myanmar HQ the level of service of the guide Si Thu in Mandalay, which was just simply excellent.
Si Thu is a passionate guide whom has a natural way of genuinely serving its customers to the fullest and you may easily see that being a guide is his true passion.
I cannot enough express my gratitude towards him and please ask the Myanmar HQ to express its gratitude in turn.

Mingalabar Ms Ly An,
Thank you for all your help with the trip I had a wonderful time.
Apologies, I forgot to give my feedback form to the last driver but my scores were as follows:
All three guides and drivers were very good.
The hotels in Mandalay and Bagan where very good as was the food.
The hotel in Yangon was adequate and the staff were great but both rooms had bugs (cockroaches) and the food was ok.
I am very likely to recommend Myanmar travel and I’m likely to return to Myanmar.
Kyay zue tin ber!

BAGAN ESCAPE 4 days/ 3 nights - 07 May 2016 - 10 May 2016
Dear Ms Ly An,
Its been almost a month now that we came back from our Myanmar trip. Thanks to you and Myanmar Travel for organising such a wonderful trip for us. Both my husband and I had a lovely time.
Our two guides Mr Naing Zaw and Mr Yan Naing were really good. Mr Naing Zaw seems to be very knowledgeable. We learned a lot from him about Buddhism and history about Myanmar. And Mr Yan Naing always had a smile on his face. He tried his level best to satisfy us and made our Bagan trip majestic.
The hotels were great as well. Starting from the cleanliness of the room to the delicious food at both the hotels, everything was amazing.
We loved every bits of our holiday in Myanmar. Definately looking forward to do more tours with you and Asia travel in future. Infact I m thinking of planning a Laos or Cambodia trip sometimes in aug/sept.
Can u suggest me someone who can assist me to plan and make a customized tour for me to Laos/Cambodia?

MYSTERIES OF MYANMAR from 24 March – 3 April 2016
A fantastic trip thank you very much.
Highlight was Bagan and Inle Lake, our guide at Bagan (Win) and his driver (Lin) were amazing.
The Amara was a beautiful hotel and location, but the food was not very good considering how expensive it was (food and beverage was very expensive).
The food at Bagan and Inle lake was excellent and reasonably priced.
Can you recommend other beach areas and hotels in Myanmar?
Thank you again.

INDOCHINA DISCOVERY TOUR from 17 – 30 March 2016
Thank you very much for taking care
We really did enjoy our travel time in Myanmar and Cambodia
The guide here in Cambodia Narin was exceptional
He was really knowledgable about the history and contemporary politics and was able to answer all our questions
The only other problem here in Cambodia was the bike ride.It was much too hot to ride for 7 hours.We expected to take car to Ankor Watt and then ride around the park and then take car back to hotel. Riding bike in the traffic and the heat was much too much.
The rest of the trip with your help met all our expectations
Thank you again

MYANMAR DISCOVERY (Yangon – Loikaw – Inle Lake – Kakku – Pindaya – Monywa – Mandalay) from 20 March to 29 March 2016
Hallo Mr. Hieu Ha,
Since Sunday we are save back at home and we like to remember to the wonderful journey. The second trip in Myanmar was very successful, too. Our feedback we send via email, because the feedback form does not fit to our tour.
As with our first tour, we have again learned a lot about Myanmar by our guide Mr. Naing Zaw. Like last year he always showed us the very best places and took place into account to our wishes and interests exactly. In Loikaw he even came in the evening, to show us the temples in the full moonlight. And in Loikaw, too we have been very lucky for visiting an offering ceremony for nearly 2000 monks. He showed us the very interesting places and views and kept care that we didn’t get lost in caves, pagodas, shops, etc. The expiration of the tour was perfect, just like last year.
And also Mr Wah Sae is a perfect driver. He drives very carefully and very prudent. In each minute we felt us very safe. Both of them have been very very helpful and friendly.
The second Myanmar Tour was very impressive for us, too. We gained new experience of the history of Myanmar and its culture and we visited sites, different than last year. This year the highlights have been the Padaung people, the stupas of Kakku, the incredibly beautiful cave in Pindaya and the fantastic pagoda and buddhism art near Monywa. The Padaung village Pan Pet is divided in two parts. The first part - before arriving the old village - we've called the showroom of the Padaung with only a shopping area. But the old village Pan Pet inspired us. The friendly Padaung woman Mary sang a nice song accompanied by guitar. We have been very lucky because we could take the direct route from Loikaw via Kakku to Inle lake. Only a few bridges were under construction. Also the touristy Inle lake was very enjoyable for us.
Altogether we had a wonderful and interesting time together with our guide Mr. Naing Zaw and our driver Mr. Wah Sae and together with the friendly Myanmar people. We saw handicraft, ethnic people, colourful market places and of course wonderful pagodas.
And also the planning phase for the second Myanmar Tour by Asia Travel & Leisure was perfect.
As you know, next year at about the same time we plan to go to Vietnam. In December we will plane the places and we will contact you.
Have a nice time till the next tour.
The very best regards
Siegfried und Maria from German

Hello Miss Binh,
Yes it was really nice! Maybe a bit short as i would have liked to see the golden rock and stay one more day to Inle lake which is a fantastic natural place,
The guides were really nice and we enjoyed their presence also,
Definitly a great Country to recommend,
The last Country i have to do is Laos now in this Region, as i know already Vietnam and Thailand,
Vietnam is for me the best in the Region!!
See you soon,

Just want to tell you that I am back in SH after a fantastic week in Myanmar!
My friend Vincent and myself spent a great journey in Myanmar and we will certainly go back again! This time, most probably with our wives!
I would also like to thank you for the very professional and good services from you and Myanmar Travel! The domestic flights, the boat, the sightseeing tour at the Golden Rock were perfect!

Grand Myanmar Discovery 23 days/ 21 January 2016 – 11 February 2016
Hello – We are now back in the UK, after our trip home from Myanmar.
I just wanted to let you know that we had a great time – thank you for organising our trip. We will certainly recommend Myanmar Travel / Asia Tours to our friends.
The general arrangements - including flights, meet/greet, transfers etc - were excellent.
We really liked all the hotels, with just a couple of exceptions. The Chindwin Hotel in Monywa was ok - nothing special. The Tharabar Gate in Bagan was a lovely hotel, but completely spoiled by the Pagoda festival, which went on more or less 24 hours for the whole 4 days of our stay! You should avoid putting guests in that hotel when the festivals are on.
All your drivers were very safe. Vehicles were very comfortable.
Your guides were excellent. We particularly liked Mr Soo Paing in Kalaw/Inle Lake – he was very good, and we’d highly recommend him for English speaking guests. We were also impressed by Mr Sanjay Htay’s knowledge of history and archaeology in Bagan.
Many thanks once again.

We have to give spacial thanks to Hong Nguyen, the Senior travel consultant from Myanmartravel that specializes in private Myanmar and Indochina tours, she was the key piece for our wonderfull experience, very professional and always helping in finding the best for our group, she answered the emails inmediately, everything was perfect, she even greeted us in our hotel and gave us presents!!
