My husband, our friends, and I just returned from Myanmar and we can’t over-praise Myanmar Diaries for our fabulous journey. From our sales consultant, Wai Lin, to our guides, BoBo, Nan, and Su, to the wonderful and varied experiences we had, everything was outstanding. How’s this for start—we were picked up at the airport and were taken to a local Yangon spa for massages! And for our “grand finale,” we enjoyed dinner at the renown La Planteur. In between, we viewed colonial buildings and the spectacular Schwedagon Pagoda; sailed on the Irrawaddy River; took a balloon ride over Bagan; visited a monastic school, ancient sites, and numerous markets; were entertained by the fisherman and incredible craftspeople on Inle Lake; fed and washed elephants at a retirement sanctuary; and relaxed at a gorgeous beach in Ngapali. Our hotels and meals exceeded our expectations. It was incredible journey, for sure.


Several of our guides spoke English to a remarkable standard and we were astonished at the extent of their vocabularies – e.g. Alex in Kalaw knew the English name of virtually every flower we encountered during our trekking in the Tar-Yaw Palaung region. The standard of the guides’ English is particularly impressive given that almost all of them had not been outside of Myanmar.

We felt there was a nice balance between seeing the traditional tourist sites, discussing ‘Burmese’ history and culture with our guide(s), enjoying Burmese food and hospitality, and going to see a show on some of the evenings.


Myanmar ist in jeder Beziehung ‘zauberhaft’. Fahren Sie so bald wie möglich dorthin. Vietnam ist im Vergleich zu Myanmar allein schon für das Auge des Touristen erheblich weiter entwickelt. Myanmar ist insbesondere für Kulturliebhaber, Vietnam für Natur – und Aktivurlauber. Insofern war es für uns ein perfektes Kombinationsmodell.


organizzare in internet un tour del Myanmar con Myanmar diaries è molto semplice e il programma concordato viene rispettato. Si incontrano guide e autisti molto gentili e competenti con i quali si impara a conoscere un Paese mai visitato prima.


Je voudrais vous remercier encore beaucoup pour l’excellent voyage que vous m’aviez préparé. A tout point de…c’était extra…bien organisé…des guides de choix…et un itinéraire magnifique.

J’ai distribué vos carte en vantant votre professionnalisme .J’espère que cela aura des retombées positives. Et si jamais je reviens en Birmanie, croyez que je m’adresserai à vous.
Voilà…Thomas,..j’ai été ravie de vous rencontrer…et si un jour vous passez par la Suisse. SVPL. contactez-moi…
Avec grand plaisir je vous recevrez.

It was a perfect, smoothly organized trip. We had with Mr. Win Zar Oo a friendly and reliable German-speaking guide, who gave us the culture and religion of the country expert competently. We were able to take rich impressions of a beautiful country home with us. The hotels were very well chosen. The cars in very good condition. The drivers always friendly.


After a lot of research I chose Myanmar Diaries to help me plan a trip to Myanmar. They were very prompt in responding and very good about catering to our individual interests. When we got there I was even more impressed. Our guides were incredible!!! Their English was excellent and their knowledge of the area 1st class. We visited Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan & Inle Lake. Each or our guides was a local from that particular area – they discussed history, religion, politics, customs, and everything with us and they went out of their way to give us the unique experience we were looking for. We met with local families, went to small villages where we could have never found and local markets, behind the scenes at the weavers, sculptors, bakers, etc. It was a once in a lifetime experience. If you are lucky enough to have Ms MiMi, Hia Myo Swe, Min Thu Swe or Khun Aung Zaw Tun then you are in for an awesome experience. I can’t rave enough about our personal guides. I learned so much more than I ever could have traveling the way I usually do – guide free. Myanmar Diaries took care of all the details, booking custom requests for me and handling the interior flights – which would have been a nightmare on my own. The flight times would change daily – but Myanmar Diaries and our guides kept up on all the changes and had us on time to the airport, and on one occasion changed our flight when it was rescheduled to an inconvenient time. We had the best trip of our lives – Myanmar was a beautiful and fascinating country, the local people so friendly, and there was so much to see.

Wir hatten eine individuelle Reise gebucht. Die Organisation der Reise war großartig auch wenn man bei der Zusammenstellung Reise mal ein paar Tage auf eine email Antwort wartete. Aber das war kein Problem weil die Agentur ja ihrerseits erst einmal für uns einen Vorschlag erarbeitete. Also einfach ein bisschen Geduld haben im Vorfeld. Es lohnt sich. Allen unseren Wünschen wurde entsprochen. Alles klappte hervorragend. Wir wurden durch sehr nette und gut informierte Guides betreut. Die Rundreise war entspannt weil wir uns um nichts kümmern mussten. Die ausgewählten Hotels waren gut bis sehr gut auch nach westlichem Standard. Die von der Agentur ausgewählten Restaurants waren authentisch und sehr lecker. Wir wurden auch nie krank. Und das Land und die Menschen sind wunderbar. Unbedingt einen Ballonflug über Bagan mitbuchen.
