Can't write a review

I wanted to submit some more reviews from my Myanmar trip, however, your review process for an unlisted attraction has a problem. It wants details in red that A traveller on a tour will not have such as the street address. I want to review some pagodas and temples I've visited but thinks I want to list a business or something. If you guys check every review why would I need this to happen for an attraction you don't list in a country that has only just been available to visit after 50 years of isolation. I want to do reviews on 1. Shewethalyaung Temple, 2. Kambozathadi Palace but can't for some reason. can you help?

Hello,

Sometimes if you have incorrect spelling on places or attractions you can't locate them here on TA. I found Kambazathadi Golden Palace, (spelled with an a, not an o).

Check the spelling for the other place you mentioned and try using the search bar at the top right of this page.

Slightly different spelling again. Is this it?

Thanks, It seems the spelling makes the difference, I was only using the spelling given by our travel guide in Myanmar and you would think they know how to spell it right.

I think you tried to use the "Write a review" link in the green bar. If that method doesn't recognise the name you type in, because the spelling is wrong, it will give you the template to submit a new listing. There is a better way. First TA search function is not that clever, so spelling is going to matter. I find going to the destination forum for the attraction is the first step. Then in the search field above the green bar type in the name and city of the attraction. Theoretically that should bring it up. From there you can go to the actual listing where you can write your review. If I entered the name and city in the general search field on this page, TA's search might not find the attraction.

BTW, this is a regular open forum, not a TA Office. Those answering here are regular members.

No worries, I was happy to help. That must have been a wonderful trip, those temples and palaces look amazing.
