I've just returned from 15 amazing days in Myanmar in which I visited Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay, Hsi paw, Pwin oo Lin and Inle using domestic flights, a train, a share taxi and private car. After researching TripAdvisor i decided to use Kyaw Khaing to arrange the total trip including accommodation, transfers etc. Kyaw he provided me with a great service and I thoroughly recommend him. Kyaw met me at Yangon airport, changed my USD for Kyat at a good rate (and reversed the money exchange for me on my last day) , gave me all my necessary hotel vouchers and plane tickets so that I could travel independently but also knowing that Kyaw was available 24/7 by mobile phone if required. I didn't have any problems during my trip and his arrangements for my journey were perfect - even finished my trip with mohinga for breakfast at a local tea shop on the way to the airport. If you decide to use Kyaw Khaing ( One Stop travel and Tours) you wont be disappointed and Myanmar is a terrific country to visit.

We were just back from a 24-day impressive “round trip” in Myanmar, including Yangon, the Golden Rock, Lake Inle, Mandalay, Bagan, Sittwe, Mrauk U, and Ngapali. Kyaw (pronounced as “Joe”) booked us all the flights, bus, boats, and most hotels as well. Everything went smooth.

Before contacting Kyaw, we’ve contacted some other travel agencies which enjoy “good reputation” and “highly recommended” either by our guide book or some forums. We were so disappointed when we got to know that one agency with “big fame” quoted us hotel room rates without checking availabilities. We were told that they would only start to work seriously on our enquiry upon receiving the down payment. In addition to this, we must pay certain amount of US$ service fee because we only needed to book hotels and flights, but wouldn’t use their cars and guides. We understood that down payment is the practice in this country, but we decided not to use them. Shortly after that, we were so lucky to have discovered Kyaw in this forum. He neither requested for any down payment nor additional service fee. And his offer was really competitive. We had no reason not to use Kyaw and his one stop Myanmar. We’d like to give him a big “thank you” for his trust to the stranger travelers.

One day in Lake Inle, hotel receptionist told us there was a message for us. Our flight (Heho- Mandalay) has been changed from Air KBZ into Air Mandalay. We guessed this was Kyaw who left the message. The next morning, we received another phone call from Kyaw, just to make sure that we received his information. You see, you can count on him.

We highly recommend Kyaw and his one stop Myanmar. If you have any questions about discover Myanmar, please don’t hesitate to contact Kyaw. You wouldn’t be disappointed.

As a discerning traveler, I suggest that you can contact many agencies at the same time. You may find some of them are really fast-responding, helpful, informative and without hassle then you can proceed with that.

I found that on TA for Myanmar, we only have 4 or 5 travel agencies that are listed on our recommendation list. Why you don`t try all ?

Obviously, it is very very pleasant to know your good reviews and specially with trip reports.
