INFORMATION FOR SINGAPOREANS FROM DESIGN TRAVEL PTE LTD

1.  All travellers are strongly advised to buy their own travel insurance wherever and whenever they travel overseas.

2.  Depending on the seasons, there may or may not be rain. Usually October to March is the dry season and the best time to visit Myanmar.

3.  Flight seats are subject to availability, as there is a great demand to visit Myanmar from business people and tourists from Singapore since Feb 2012. Booking must be confirmed as early as 2 weeks in advance. No cancellation is possible after confirmation. Purchase your travel insurance to cover your cancellation due to illness or injury before departure.


4.  Myanmar Embassy in Singapore will be closed from 11 April to 22 April
for the Water Festival holidays
and will resume on 23 April 2012. Therefore, visa applications need to be processed before the embassy closes.

Vist downtown Yangon, Myanmar. Business District. Toa Payoh Vets. Yangon downtown has lots of history and many interesting food stalls, markets and local city folks. In 2008, European visitors seen in Yangon would be rarely encountered (image on left).

But in 2012, the number of European visitors in Yangon appears to be 50% of the tourists, especially at the
most famous Shwedagon Pagoda. 4- and 5-star hotel accommodation costs have increased due to great demand and insufficient supply.

Air Bagan is packed with Caucasian and Asian travellers in 2012 wanting to see the remaining historical ruins. There are two other domestic airlines flying to Bagan. Demand is great and therefore advance booking for hotels and domestic flight is necessary nowadays.

Romance Myanmar's history by visiting Bagan once in your life-time before mass tourism destroys the ruins and the temples while climbing up to view the beautiful sunset

NOTES:

Design Travel Pte Ltd, a Singapore-licensed travel agency, collaborates only with reputable and reliable licensed tourist agencies in Myanmar to provide a value-for-money, hassle-free, pleasant and enjoyable travel to Myanmar for Singaporeans and Singapore residents.

Such tours are customised and pricing therefore depends on the period of travel (peak season or off-peak season), the quality and availability of hotel accommodation, the relatively higher costs of domestic flights, the higher cost of Silk Air fares as compared to MAI (Myanmar Airways International) fares and provision of meals.     

As there is a large increase in international tourism to Myanmar after the partial lifting of US and European sanctions, the demand for 4- and 5-star hotels and airline booking is extremely high since February 2012. Therefore, booking one month in advance or earlier is advised.   

The above itinerary has been customised for a couple who want to visit Myanmar's well known archaeological spot and the famous pagodas of Yangon in April 30, 2012 for 5 days/4 nights.
