This will ensure you can travel on the days that suit you and your tour.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is compulsory on all of our journeys. Speak to us or your travel agent about comprehensive insurance to cover your travel arrangements. This must critically cover medical expenses in case of an emergency.  Note that travel insurance automatically provided with credit cards generally does not provide adequate cover. Its your responsibility to ensure that you have appropriate and comprehensive travel insurance.

Medical Information

Our elderly travellers who are aged 70 years or more, or with a per-existing condition that affects their fitness to travel or any medical dietary requirement, must be advised at the time of booking. We recommend all travellers should visit their Doctor for these aforementioned purposes and/or to confirm that they are physically able to undertake the day-to-day requirements of the tour.

Type of Accommodation

As there is so much to see and do in Myanmar during the day therefore everyone deserves a good night sleep. The accommodation in Myanmar is limited and standards vary. The accommodation included in our package are not Luxurious but are comfortable, clean and tidy with private facilities. Every hotel might be different according to location, amenities and services.

Hotel Grading

Comfort: 3 star hotels offering basic and clean private facilities.  

Deluxe: 4 Star hotel, Palaces and Heritage properties offering above average to very good facilities.

Luxury: 5 star hotel, Palace and Heritage properties offering full range of facilities and exceptional services with unique feature.

Note:

The cities which do not have more choice of hotels, the best suitable category of hotel is provided.

It is also possible to take a combination of comfort, deluxe and luxury accommodation in one itinerary.

Nepal being adventure destination, choices of accommodation are limited hence basic 3* or best available hotel in the itinerary except at some location where 4* and 5* hotel options are offered.

In Bhutan itinerary basis 3* hotel accommodation is used unless requested.

Selecting Your Holiday Type

Most of our journeys are suited to those with normal fitness and mobility levels. To assist you in choosing a journey best for you we have graded our tours;

Easy Paced: These programs are set at a comfortable pace. Walking and climbing of stairs involved is generally in and around major tourist attractions though you may require walking from road till boat jetty while embarking or disembarking boats.

Moderate: These tours are not strenuous but you will require good amount of fitness as they may include days with long periods of walking or soft trekking, climbing of stairs, embarking and disembarking boats and where longer distances may be travelled by uneven roads.

Adventurous: These refer to programs where your physical fitness needs to be on highest level. Trekking, cycling, climbing, walking and more adventurous activities may be included.

Travelling In Myanmar:

Air travel is an efficient and relatively cheap way to get around Myanmar, and is particularly appealing given that bus and train journeys between major tourist sites tend to be long and often uncomfortable. Road travel is the best way to get around if you are on a budget. It is worth noting, however, that many routes are off-limits to foreigners – usually when they run through sensitive border areas or regions where the government is in conflict with ethnic minority militias. Many roads are poorly maintained and can become impassable in the rainy season, from May to October.

Our Independent tours use a variety of transport options to get you from city to city.  From Private car to deluxe charter coaches, you’ll be taken from hotel to hotel in comfort.

We recommend that you carry a roll of toilet paper from your hotel before you start your sightseeing tour or travel as in emergency stop some of the public toilets may not have sufficient toilet rolls and also to avoid any inconvenience to yourself.

During construction, an astrologer to the king argued that the king would die upon completion of the temple, and work was immediately halted. Had it been completed, it would have been the largest in the world. The cracks we see are the result of the 23 March 1839 earthquake that shook the area. We continue our walk to the Mingun Bell, which was the heaviest working bell in the world until 2000 when the Bell of Good Luck was unveiled in Henan, China.
