No nosso primeiro em Yangon optamos por um bike tour. Foi um dia fantástico em que conhecemos verdadeiramente como vivem os locais e ainda aproveitamos para degustar algumas especialidades.

Nota positiva para o povo super amigável que são os residentes de Yangon, notoriamente têm dificuldades de toda a ordem, mas têm sempre um sorriso para os visitantes. Crianças lindas e sorridentes sempre a estender a mão apenas para um ‘give me five’.

Destaque super especial para o Ted, um excelente guia que nos apresentou tudo com os detalhes e que tornou o nosso Tour numa experiência verdadeiramente espectacular. Parabéns Ted.

This tour was a great tour. I was exposed to the life of people in these small villages just outside of Yangon. I thought the tour was a great new experience and would definitely recommend it to other future travellers to Myanmar

We use good bike and expert guide, so the price seems a bit high for you but it is almost free if you compared with other guided bike tour.
