    5.0 - Excellent

    My husband and I have traveled all over Southeast Asia during our holidays, and Myanmar really stands out! Granted, it's more expensive than anywhere else in the region, which has been due to the isolation of the country and the resulting low supply/demand of service industry infrastructure. No matter, the same isolation has resulted in less tourists coming here than neighboring countries like Thailand or India. We quite liked that! We were so happy with our guide, a gentle man who spoke thoughtfully and with genuine interest in showing his country to us. He was a large part of making the tour from ordinary to extraordinary. We can't say enough about him! In general, Myanmar people are incredibly kind. That with the beautiful scenery made this trip memorable. There are lots of small interactions that happened, but the one I most remember (sorry, this was about a year and a half ago), was when my husband lost his wallet. It was during a boat ride between a weaving village and a pogoda at Inle Lake. A shop attendant chased us down in another boat to give it back, incredible! It was forgotten on the counter. We were impressed that in a relatively touristy area of the country (we saw other tourists going to and fro on other boats all day long), local people still dd not have the mentality to take advantage of tourists. We traveled with a few friends, and was impressed at the organization of the travel company. Mika, the owner, greeted us at the end of the trip. The transport surpassed expectations as we were expecting decrepit cars from the 1970s or something like that. Nope, they were new and air-conditioned. The hotel met our expectations based on the descriptions sent. Overall, an excellent experience.
