Venetia, Willie, John & Caroline – Myanmar & Laos (Oct 2019)

Thank you for planning a wonderful trip all arrangements for meeting us and showing us round were excellent. I cannot recall any moment where we were kept waiting. Same applies to vehicles and drivers. The quality of guides were good to excellent even if we sometimes struggled to understand their English! 

All the local flights were on time, even early and quality of service vastly superior to BA! The cooking class on Inle Lake was great. Bagan was beautiful (and Venetia did the sunrise balloon flight!). The Sanctuary Ananda river cruise was one of the highlights of our trip.

Ngapali bay resort on the Myanmar coast was a wonderful location. Great rooms with own plunge pool but F&B was not managed well and very expensive such that guests from our hotel and others were simply going out to meals at local restaurants. However it was a great downtime.

Maison Dalabua, Luang Prabang (Laos) was lovely as was the town and area – another highlight of the trip.

On the way home, the Siam hotel in Bangkok was a final highlight of a wonderful three weeks. Laos is a real gem of a place waiting for the world to arrive.
