Then visit famous Chauk Htat Kyi, home to a 70-meter long reclining Buddha. The feet of the statue carved with traditional symbols and often many locals gathering to pay homage and pray.

Cheryl Brodsky, United States

We should be thanking you for one of the best 3 day trips we’ve taken. We loved everything about Bagan and we loved all that we did in Yangon. Our guide Soe Yee was a real delight. He was warm, knowledgeable and knew how to work the system to get things done. Our group really loved him and he has our highest recommendation. Thank you for all your efforts. Your organisation was outstanding. We had been warned that in a country like Myanmar we should be prepared for glitches in our travel but our travel was as smooth and problem free as it could have been. I hope to return to Myanmar in the future to see more of your fascinating country and rest assured we will use Myanmar Shalom to plan our trip. Keep up the great work you are doing and I trust that our paths will cross again soon. Shalom Read more

Thank you for all your help with organizing our recent trip to Myanmar. I usually would do the trip planning myself, however your professional advice, itinerary, tour cost and excellent communication has made me think again. The trip was fabulous! Our guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. Truly a special country with incredible sights to behold. I hope more and more people travel to Myanmar as the real gems are its people. Read more

Merton Zatman, United Kingdom

What a wonderful experience we had during our Myanmar visit, something that we never cease talking about to our friends. We are fortunate to have travelled to many countries in all parts of the world, but nothing even begins to equal the wonder and beauty of our visit to Myanmar, truly an unforgettable experience. So much of our enjoyment was a result of the care and planning of Myanmar Shalom and of the Samuels, both Sammy and Moshe, and of their excellent team of guides who so quickly became our friends. Thank you so much for all that you did for us. Read more
