Memorable trip in Myanmar!!

Nov 2019

Travelled down the Ayeyarwady in November. It was the most wonderful experience and one of the best trips I have ever done. It was worth the cost, I am saddened that it has ceased at present. The people are beautiful, friendly, humble and ready with a smile. Amazing scenery and history.
