“We were superbly looked after by Exotic Voyages & their excellent guide network”

Am not long returned from a fantastic trip to Myanmar where we were superbly looked after by Exotic Voyages & their excellent guide network. We visited Yangon , Inle Lake, Mandalay & Bagan taking in the main sites as we traveled on a 11 night photography trip. Bagan was amazing – esp the balloon ride at dawn with Oriental Ballooning. Have to say though at same time Bagan was the only place where we witnessed some of the negative aspects of tourism in the country too. In particular where we were brought to a “typical local village” where the locals all seemed to have been dressed up for the occasion and overly quick and persistent about having their hand out for money if you wanted to take a picture. Was one of the few “negatives” about the entire visit and I guess Bagan needs to be careful so as not to become spoiled too quickly. Other than that a fantastic place to go – and go now before it becomes too commercialised and overrun by tourists.
