Myanmar has a magical otherworldly-ness to it and still feels less touched by globalization. This trip was a great way to experience lots of the country in a short amount of time, with an experienced local guide. Highly recommended for solo travelers.

Intrepid "comfort" tours provide us with the perfect balance - small groups; a helpful and knowledgable guide (to help steer us around far away places); and a decent hotel at the end of what are very full days. We've travelled with Intrepid 4/5 times and they're definitely out "go to" travel company for our long haul adventures.
