I will be happy to be your new best friend in Myanmar. There really is is no place like it.
What, where and how
There are a thousand and one things to do in Myanmar. You can travel around the country by air, car, boat, horse and cart, E bike, train, motorbike, on foot or by bicycle.
There are all types of food from street food, to top quality local fare and fine dining. And there are markets that sell everything, jewels, jade, clothes, craftware, & pictures.
On this page I list all the major tourist sites and also something different.
Some locations may not yet be open or suitable for tourists – we can discuss where to go. Unlike Thailand, Myanmar is not over-run with tourists and commercialized, so you can have a real Asia experience and pretty much do whatever you want.
Just tell me the sort of things you like to do, where you want to go, and I will fix it for you. I will also suggest things you did not know about or might like. That’s my job.
There is no place like it
Myanmar is unique and I am very proud of my country.
I was born in 1991 and brought up in the western part of Myanmar. Both my parents are teachers working as government employees. I came to Yangon to do further studies after the matriculation exams in 2006.
I successfully completed the tour guide and operation training course conducted by Tourism Training School (Yangon) under the auspices of Ministry of Hotel & Tourism in 2011. I was awarded a Tour Guide Myanmar license to serve as a freelance tour guide throughout the country. My first tour was in 2012. Since then I have been serving as a full time independent tour guide for my handmade tours and also for guests of Cruise Companies, hotels, Tour Operators and local Travel agents
I use a small team of guides and drivers in Bagan, Mandalay, Inle lake, Kalaw, Mrauk U and Loikaw areas who I know and trust. We work together all the time and it means I can check you are seeing and doing what you want, and sort out any little problems or fix and new requests that arise on your trip.
