“An enjoyable trip. Whilst you are clearly following the 'tourist trail', there are few enough tourists that you still feel that you are seeing the real country, and it doesn't take much effort to get to spots where there are no other tourists around. You visit a lot of temples, but they were all so varied that I didn't get bored of visiting more.”

“A brilliant trip showing the main highlights and areas of a big country. Lots of travelling but all locations visited were worth it.”

“Burma has some amazing and instantly recognisable sights and sites, including temples, scenery and towns. Scwedagon Pagada on the first day was an amazing introduction to Yangon, with the chance to see it in both early evening and darkness. I also enjoyed visiting the worlds largest book at Kuthodaw Pagoda in Mandalay.
I loved the outdoor days, the cruise on the Irrawaddy to Mingun and Sagaing, hiking and cycling in Kalaw and the day out on Inle Lake seeing the fishermen at work, their bamboo homes, floating gardens and the various cottage industries. I also enjoyed time roaming the towns of Bagan, Kalaw and Nyangshwe and their various adjoining villages and cottage industries.
However, I found the pace of this trip far too slow, particularly in Yangon and Bagan. I am aware the trip is labelled leisurely/moderate, however for me, the first part of the trip spent far too much time on the air conditioned bus. I expected the highlight of this trip to be Bagan, in fact I was desperately disappointed with the 2.5 days spent in Bagan. We spent the two full days on the bus visiting nine temples, Mount Popa and a sunset temple, with only 40 mins allocated for a walk in the temple forest. I would have expected a full day of walking or cycling amongst the temples. Bagan has 4000-5000 temples, we drove past them! At some point in the future I hope to be able to go back and do it properly.
I also felt the pace in which we visited in particular the Scwedagon Pagado and the inside of temples in Bagan was far too slow, there was far too much pausing and walking slowly.”

“A fabulous holiday showcasing all of Myanmar's tourist hot spots. From the city of Yangon - visiting the spectacular Shwedagon Pagoda, to the plains of Bagan with thousands of ancient pagodas, Mandalay - a river trip on the Ayeyarwady River, Kalaw - trekking in the mountains through fields of cabbages and pine forests, and Inle Lake with the houses on stilts, floating gardens & leg rowing fishermen.”

“The Exodus program was varied, energetic and interesting, and additional value was added by both our well-organised gentle guide Nyi Nyi Lwin, as well as by the lively interest of the well-travelled fellow travellers in the group.”

“A truly wonderful trip. There is so much to see and do in this country. Go soon as the feeling is that there will be big changes over the next few years. There is a real sense of optimism regarding the new government which will come into effect in March this year. The standard of the hotels was much better than I thought it would be from reading the trip notes. The one exception was the Hu Pin hotel at Inle Lake where the bathroom was poor and there was a stagnant water 'moat' outside the front door.”
