Trip report- november-december- with One stop Myanmar

My husband and I have just returned from a nice and amazing 4 weeks in Myanmar. We are Slovenian couple in mid fifties, fit and adventurous and we usually travel independently, but for Myanmar we quickly realised the importance of having a local travel agent and selected one from these forums.

We booked accommodation, all internal flights, the boat trip and transfers with OneStop Myanmar, Mr. Kyaw give us most interesting offerr, including hot air baloon festival.....and all time he's been very responsive and helpful in our questions and changes in plans.

We had 4 days in Inle Lake, Mandalay, BaganInle Lake and 3 days in Yangon and 8 days in Ngapali. In each place we have organised car with driver and with local guide. All time hotels was OK, especially Paramount at Inle Lake, Amazing Bagan and Amazing Ngapali.

We really dont have problem with money changing, and for people from Europe, I think that is much better to take Euros, in all places we can change Euros in Kyatts in normal rate.

If we go back next time, we will spent one or two day more in Bagan, for independent exploring, and two days less on beach, it was absolutely nice, but after 5-6 days we began to slowly bore.

Shopping options in Yangon are not so nice, like we read before. We found the more shopping options in Bagan and in Mandalay. We bought lacquerware in Bagan, and nice pupets in Mandalay.

We enjoyed nice 4 weeks in Myanmar, and must say again thank you Mr. Kyaw.

We were in Myanmar in July and tried to book hotels, flights, etc. as much as possible online. When we found that we couldn't book internal flights, we used One Stop Myanmar for a flight from Bagan to Inle Lake, two of our hotels, and for organizing a driver from Mandalay to Bagan. When we got to Mandalay, the driver picked us up at the airport. We realized that he knew the city well so we hired him to drive us around Mandalay for two days. The driver, "Jo-Jo", was excellent and really made our stay in Mandalay enjoyable. He arranged for us to visit Mingun, and took us to various sights in Mandalay (including some excellent restaurants). While driving us to Bagan on the third day, he stopped at Mount Popa. He gave us outstanding service so we recommend him if you are in Mandalay. We regret not using One Stop for more guides because of our wonderful experience with Jo-Jo.
