We just completed a two week trip: domestic flights, hotels, trekking etc. all paid by credit card through Oway so we didn' have to carry the cash. Easy selecting & booking what we wanted from their website menus & excellent response to on the road requests & issues (not of their doing). Highly recommended. We are experienced, independent world travellers & can't fault their services. This in contrast to many reputable (LP & TA) Myanmar agents who we previously contacted but were just too busy with the uptick in tourist volume to give us the time of day. We only started booking the trip early December. We will be posting a very positive detailed Oway review soon.

hey, it's a scam.

I tried it with my Groupon deal and I bet you the comment by Globelmoneky is an insider.

When i showed my deal to the restaurant, the staff there not only didn't know what I was doing, they thought I was ripping them off!

Stick with the big boys and the big brands and just be smart about it!!

Restaurant Groupons can be bought only direct from Groupon to my knowledge. How was Oway involved? If you explain all the details then others can benefit from your experience.

We used MasterCard because you can dispute/cancel MasterCard billing if the service isn't delivered as promised. We have no link to Omway, just impressed that their service was outstanding.

At this moment , all I can say is most of the hotel , oway offer may not be up to the standard . Be care with the hotel that you choose.

WOW, all these anti-OWAY posts about their services but from nobody (else) who seems to have actually made a trip through OWAY bookings! & many from single post reviewers. The Myanmar travel industry somewhere feels very threatened by OWAY's business model. Anyway, time will tell if OWAY can continue to deliver or not.
