I am interested in taking a short 4-5 day excursion at the end of a 2-week photo tour. I am thinking about either MraukU or Kengtung. I started an exchange with Santa Maria company, but then they stopped writing. Myanmar Diaries gave me a very high estimate. So first, I'm not sure whether to go to MraukU or Kengtung. I'm leaning toward Kengtung, as the tribes sound really interesting, but flights aren't good. Second, I don't know what to do about getting a response from Santa Maria. I need to know quickly as I'm going in March. Can I just make my own arrangements for Kengtung? Get flights and hotel and find a guide when I get there? Or am I safer with an expensive tour company going to MraukU? Help!
