Ms. Vu worked out the details of my trip to Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan. Everything went very smoothly. Bagan in particular was a great experience. In order to preserve the extraordinary archaeological value of the ancient sights, I believe, access in Bagan to some of the most popular pagodas eventually must be restricted from all those buses, horse-carts, motorcycles etc., and a form of non-polluting public transportation provided from the entrance area. A Travel Mate’s local guides were very professional, knowledgeable. Their English was very good albeit the pronunciation for me sometimes was not very easy to understand. A Travel Mate… Read more »

We booked this tour on-line from Australia. Ms Angel Vu was an excellent Travel Agent and always kept us informed, both during the booking period and while we were on tour, The guides provided were very informative and their English was excellent. However, sometimes it took a while to get used to their accents. The drivers provided were quite cautious in their driving. The hotels chosen were 3 Star but as with all 3 star hotels in SE Asia the facilities were excellent and the beds very comfortable. We visited several of the main attractions in Myanmar such as Inle… Read more »

It’s always a great opportunity to visit Myanmar, especially in summer. It may get hot because of high temperature; it would bedefinitely worthy. Our trip to Myanmar was one week ago, private tour operated by A Travel Mate. It was my first time witnessing the country of uncounted ancient temples. Escaping away from the busy life, my trip went nicely and passed peaceful villages. I didn’t have achance to take as much as photos because of my broken camera I dropped in the first day in Yangon, but I truly fell in love with the beautiful country where the people… Read more »

I love the cuisine is a mixture of fragrant curries, tangy salads, healthy soups and tasty sweets.
