Nina welcomed and guided us really kindly. She took the effort to show us as much as possible in a short time and to let us know Yangon and the habits of Myanmar. She was really flexible, adapted the program if necessary and made it possible fot us to see as much as possible. We got everything out of the program and more! Really fantastic. The visit to the fortune-teller, sacrificing the flowers in the Shwedagon temple, it all brought an extra dimension to our visit. Highlights were also the visit to the fish market and to the vegetable market.
After arriving in Mandalay, we had a terrific morning in Paleik. The market, the unplanned tea at the weaving mill, the visit to mini Bagan, a visit to a school and a snake temple gave us loads of trust in our guide (Tun Thein). The hotel was great fun! Bagan was amazing. Our guide Min Min has a talent for story-telling and took all the time necessary to explain and show us everything. Our bikeride with pic nic with him was one of the greatest experiences in Myanmar. He even gave us his information on paper. Again, we got more than we expected. We had a really nice time over there.
In Kalaw and the Inle lake, everything was arranged very well. The guide was really nice and explained everything very clearly. We had a beautiful but heavy bikeride on good bikes. The boat trips on the lake were more than unforgettable. Especially when we got in the seperate boats for the first time, it was a wonderful experience to skim over the water in a boat like that. The hotels were also amazing.
