Exploration Travel provided an intensely interesting, flexible and safe experience to Bagan, Yenangyaung and Salay in this precarious time. The guides were experts and catered to my needs, providing invaluable insights into the local culture and history. I toured pagodas, went fishing on the Irrawaddy, took a bike trip to a monastery, talked with lots of locals, stayed one night in a lovely guesthouse (Le Thar Gone) that was attached to a private high school, and then two nights in an idyllic setting at Salay River View Inn. As a solo female traveler, I felt very cared for and protected as all the logistics were smoothly tended to. One highlight of my trip was the wonderful young women at Salay House who took me on tours around the town, allowing me access to places I wouldn't have known were there. Like inside of a lacquered Buddha! I would book another trip with Exploration Travel without hesitation.
