What travelers say about kimkim

Reviews from kimkim travelers who recently returned from their adventures

Make the most of your trip to Myanmar

After a tumultuous recent past, Myanmar is now a peaceful and safe travel destination. This multi-religious country, nestled between neighboring giants India and China, and more similarly-sized Thailand and Bangladesh, is the perfect destination for those looking to experience a unique mix of local culture, architecture, and traditions. Read more

Best time to visit

Although Myanmar is accessible year-round, the best months for travelers are September to March when the temperatures are cooler and the weather is dry. For those willing to put up with a bit of rain and heat, the off-season months see far fewer crowds and prices drop significantly.

Where to go
One could spend a lifetime exploring Myanmar and not see all that it has to offer! But for first-time visitors, the best introduction to the country’s diversity would include the bustling yet traditional city of Yangon, Bagan’s ancient pagodas, Mandalay’s former royal capitals and the majestic Inle Lake.

What to do
Whether an adrenaline-junky or a culture buff, Myanmar has something for you. Browse for art at Yangon’s galleries, trek to remote hill tribe villages in the Shan State, cruise in style down the Irrawaddy River, meet with monks in a countryside monastery or dozens of other options. Myanmar is the ideal place to indulge in your passions and discover a culture unlike any other.

Why Visit Myanmar? 5 Reasons To Go

While these countries certainly have their similarities, they each retain their own unique features. Below, we've outlined 5 things that make Myanmar special and unique.

Highlights of Mandalay and Bagan - 5 Days

This 5-day Myanmar introduction showcases the best of the two cities plus ensures you forge a genuine connection with the people and culture. Whether as an introduction to Myanmar or as an add-on to a Yangon stopover, this trip is sure to satisfy the history-loving traveler.

Inle Lake, Myanmar

Myanmar’s 'Big Four' Destinations

Myanmar is a land of sacred pagodas, deep-rooted traditions, and mile after mile of spectacular landscapes and friendly, hospitable people. Few places in the world offer such a remarkable selection of natural and cultural wonders.

Best Trekking & Biking Trails in Myanmar

With endless miles of quiet roads and trails, Myanmar is an ideal place for an outdoor adventure. Trekking and cycling bring you to areas less-frequented by travellers and often the trail leads to spectacular villages or viewpoints.

Myanmar: Off-The-Beaten-path

Myanmar may still be an up-and-coming travel destination, but certain areas already receive a lot more attention than others. If you're looking for places that are a bit more off-the-beaten-path, here's a great list of experiences that will provide a better understanding of the local culture, nature, and customs unique to certain regions.

Myanmar Diaries represented by Wai Lin, our local kimkim specialist for our Myanmar Trip, was exemplary .... Wai Lin was highly professional, helpful, accommodating and informative, we could not have asked for better. All our guides were most respectful with very good English speaking skills and knowledge of their areas, likewise our drivers skilful and very safe, the cars in excellent condition.

Our 16-day Trip was absolutely amazing ... we were very pleasantly surprised at how totally safe we felt at all times given the recent unrest in the Northern area of Rakhine, which is well away from all tourist hot spots such as Bagan, Lake Inle, Ngapali Beach (divine), Mandalay and Yangon ... do not hesitate to visit Myanmar as it is an extremely scenic, culturally fascinating and safe country to visit, the Myanmar people utterly delightful! And incredible value for money as a holiday destination!

Do not hesitate to use Myanmar Dairies as your travel agent, you could not ask for better!

Visiting birth place, Myanmar - Jan 1 - Jan 12, 2018

Traveler: pratibha g. - Local specialist: Su Shwe Yee Aung

The whole trip was wonderful. Our guide in Mandalay and (July) in Yangon were exceptional. Just one thought, 4 nights in Bagan was a bit much. Maybe adding a little more north city might be interesting. In my case, I should have done Lashio. If guides could have more info for dinner, might be helpful. Loved the country & the people. Food was good too.
