You need to go to myanmar

I was in myanmar last week. It is probably one of the most beautiful countries I have visited... people need to go there! First I took a trip to Thailand with Gate1travel.com and then I continued to myanmar on my own. I wish I had done the myanmar part with Gate1travel as well. I got the best hotels and service in tailand with Gate1 and I paid one quarter of what I paid traveling on my own in myanmar. Don't miss Bagan and Inle; amazing places!

Maybe you should make some reviews of your trip. It is the first time the travel gate1 is mentioned here and you also come to the forum just for a very short time. It should be more reasonable if you prove your real travel

What kind of rates did you pay for hotels? Just curious...

Not sure, since I got a local agency who bundled guide+hotels+airplanes (yangon-bagan-mandalay-heho-yangon) for me. I paid around $1200 for 5nights/6days

By the way, the $1200 price was only for hotels and land services, since I paid another $370 for local flights.

They didn't itemize the expenses? Most reputable agencies will list up the hotels, airfares, driver fees, etc down to the dollar. The several agencies I have dealt with in Yangon have so far have all provided me with a cost breakdown. I highly recommend people do this, othewise you may end up with added-on extras...

#6, really? I spent about $500 in 6 of my 23 days, including drivers, all hotels, taxis, tips, meals & booze. I traveled alone. Do the math, $1200 is pricey...

It depends much on the level of the service but Myanmar now is very expensive and travelling alone is realy costly also.

Yes, I have found that out. I will be saving the next few years to head back to Myanmar. In the meantime, I will still be able to visit Thailand, Cambodia and Laos for one-third the price...
