A very interesting trip. Our guide was very informative and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The drive to Kyaiktiyo enabled us to see some of the Myanmar countryside and village life. The truck drive up to the rock was an experience! The site was very busy, but fantastic people watching! We knew very little about Bago but it exceeded expectations - particularly the Golden Palace. Prepare for a long, but really good day. Note that the heavy traffic on the approach to Yangon means that you may not get back to the city by 5pm as programmed.
this trip is definitely more than i expected. the trip to golden rock alone is an adventure! the golden rock is a sight to behold and one must really be there to appreciate it. no wonder its a pilgrimage site and a natural wonder! my guide khin was professional, helpful and friendly. she smiles a lot which maybe unusual for local people but made the trip very pleasant. this should definitely be on one of the top of the list that makes myanmar trip memorable.
