Great tour-guide for Mandalay and *Happy Travels*

I would like to recommend very highly a guide we had for Mandalay and region. His name is Soe Paing, we just called him Soe Soe-

and on his card it says also Happy Travels, e.g. he can also help to book bus tickets give information about local customs and culture and other services.

He organized a lovely tour for :

Sagaing, Inwa and Mandalay city and sunset at Irrawady River hotel.

from 8am-6pm including some very interesting markets, such a Jade, since he worked there once. He never pushed for shopping- he actually takes you to places where there are not a lot of tourists (anticlock) I paid him USD 20.- for the whole day (it might be more by now) he is very honest, reliable and very pleasant. He speaks english well, you can discuss the itinerary with him.

He knows a driver with a AC car- I paid 40 000K for the trip mentioned above.

Next day, Soe Soe was busy, so we just booked the driver for Mandalay Hill, U Bein Bridge (it s good to take the boat there for sunset) and we paid again 40 000 K for a whole day. Of course it depends on the distance, it can be more.

He very promptly replied to my mails. His details are below:

I have been travelling with Soe Paing for a few days in and around Mandalay. I was sitting on the back seat of his motobike. I had a great time with Soe. He is trustworthy and a realy nice guy. Soe will take you the non standard route around touristic and non touristic sites.
