AN UNSOLICITED FEEDBACK FROM AN EXPATRIATE CLIENT WHO
TRAVELLED ON APRIL 11, 2013 WITH HER FAMILY
It has taken me a few days as I have been busy with the kids who
are still on holiday but here is a little report on our trip.
The guide Soo and the driver were excellent. Picked us up at the
airport and dropped us at the hotel to have lunch and relax before
picking us up at 4.30pm for some sightseeing in central Yangon
including the Shwedagon Pagoda. Fantastic place to see.
They dropped us back to the hotel and picked us up in good time
for the early flight to Bagan the next day.
Savoy Hotel in Yangon
This is a lovely hotel and we would highly recommend it to anyone
staying in Yangon.
The guide in Bagan was Mister Jo and the driver Mr Zar. Mister Jo
was absolutely excellent – highly recommended. He spoke good
English was very knowledgeable and interesting. Mr Zar was very
professional and courteous and often offered a cold water and wipe
at just the right time.
Bagan itself is amazing and we enjoyed all the suggested
activities, the horse cart trip , the boat on the Aye Yar Wady
and the sunset viewings. Breath taking really. All lunch
suggestions were excellent too. Thoroughly well organised.
Tharabar Gate Hotel in Bagan
A good hotel lovely atmosphere, style and staff and great
location. They were having trouble with their pool and it was
closed for 2 of the 3 days and was an unappetizing lurid green
colour but apart from that the stay was excellent
Another place well worth a visit . Our guide and boatmen were also
very good. The guide was fun with a good sense of humour and
really made an effort with the kids. Arrangements were very good
– nice lunch suggestions and on the trek our guide cooked for us
himself a delicious chicken noodle soup. We were very impressed.
The craft visits were interesting – the afternoon trip to the Shwe
Inn Thein Paya was an absolute highlight. Nice boat trip and
The trek was very enjoyable – our kids complained a bit and we had
to cut it a bit shorter than we would have liked but the guide
coped well with this.
Golden Island Cottages(1) (Nampan)
A lovely hotel situated right on the lake with all buildings on
stilts. Lovely people. Every other night they put on a cultural
show which is fantastic and we really enjoyed it. Beautiful place.
Trip back to Yangon
you know there was a problem with our trip back to Yangon which
resulted in us spending 8 hours at Heho Airport. – not sure how
this occurred but never mind. We had many apologies and it was
nice that even though we had missed out on our Yangon sightseeing
on our return we were offered an earlier pick up so that we could
at least see the Chaukhtatgyi reclining Buddha and we really
So overall we were very impressed and happy and we would happily
recommend you and G.. travel to other clients.
Please could you pass this on to G... in Yangon with our sincere
All the best
