Myanmar, a country rich in culture and history, is welcoming you with amazing views and sincere smiles. With more than five years of experience in the tourism sector, I am both passionate and qualified to help you create heartfelt, customized tours that will give the best memories to all of our clients.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I specialize and can offer many types of tours for Myanmar. Since Myanmar has a lot of natural resources and cultural attractions a classic cultural tour could be arranged along with a tailor-made odyssey filled with wonderful photographic opportunities, sustainable practices, off the beaten track visits to different ethnic villages, and Buddhist traditions. Whether alone or in a group, all visitors will be sure to appreciate the natural ways of life here overland or overwater. As I mentioned before, anything that the visitor may dream can be made real."
How did you get involved in travel?
"The hidden and unspoiled beauty of the breath-taking landscapes in this Golden Land of pagoda legends has existed until today enduring through long transitions and eras of quiet peace. For centuries, this has been what the world knew about “Burma” or present-day Myanmar where I was born and raised. I am Linn and I graduated from the University Of Foreign Languages Of Mandalay with a Bachelor of Arts in German Language. Around 2013 I had the opportunity to get into the tourism sector. Now I’ve been serving as a tour operator at one of the leading DMCs in Yangon, Myanmar. As most of my experience with tourism has been through a “tour operator” or “sales executive” perspective, I am confident that I can manage and cater to whatever desire that any traveler might want when visiting here. I can help you by designing various themed trips such as those focusing on sustainability or other customized tours focused on health and wellness. Based on my personal travel knowledge collected through my several years in Myanmar, I’m here ready to serve and share authentic, unique experiences to suit individual clients’ needs and wants. I’m eager to help you create unforgettable memories!"
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"In 2015, I went to a few Pa Oh villages (the Pa Oh are an ethnicity primarily in the hills of the East) where I was conducting an inspection of the Community Based Tourism operations there. It was my most unforgettable trip and I learned a lot about the Pa Oh community, the Pa Oh culture, their ways of life and their daily activities. This area was restricted by the government in previous years so they never got too many tourists there. Recently, the government opened this area up for international visitors and we got a chance to conduct this inspection trip to help them develop tourism packages which would help the Pa Oh community in the long run. We went by several modes of transport such as by car, on foot, and by bike. We participated in trekking excursions through green mountain ranges, made traditional Pa Oh bamboo hats and baskets, and attended a cooking class where we made a traditional Pa Oh lunch while conversing with these friendly locals. We helped them with their farming and gardening in addition to their house chores to then celebrate with a village dinner while watching a traditional Pa Oh dance performance and playing games with the village children. This is the most unique travel experience in my life even though I travelled to a lot of destinations like Kalaw in the remotest lands of Myanmar."

Our guide in Yangon, Linn Linn and our bike guide Nay (apologies for spelling) were both excellent, well informed, helpful and pleasant to be with. The transfers, accommodation, food and cycling were great. The amazing temples in Bagan and the view from Popa Mountain were beautiful as were the sunsets and the river cruise.
Eight amazing days in Myanmar
Dec 25 - Jan 1, 2020
My family enjoyed our 8 day trip to Myanmar so much! We have been to over 80 countries and taken many tours, and this particular tour was one of the best. Every guide was there to meet us at the airport right when we exited the baggage area and were so helpful with the four internal flights. All internal flights were safe and nice--with meals even served on two of them. The drivers always had water and wet wipes available and all vehicles were all clean and comfortable. All... read more

I was skeptical of using an impersonal travel service like this, but it worked out fantastic and I guess this is the way of the future. I am a single female traveler and usually go alone. Myanmar was intimidating to me so I hired KimKim to help me out. I will definitely use them again. Everything was set up exactly as they stated. The price was reasonable. They were with me every step of the way. They tailored my six day trip to Myanmar perfectly. The guides on the ground... read more

Highlights of Myanmar - 10 Day Tour
Dec 24 - Jan 5, 2020
We had the most phenomenal trip , a lifetime of memories and experiences over the 10 days. The hotels were all fabulous, the guides informative, knowledgeable and helpful and the choice of destinations and activities were perfect.
Our favorite guides were Aung in Yangon, Jery in Mandalay and Min Min in Inle Lake.
I would highly recommend KimKim to organise the best highlight tour of Myanmar to take account of your special requests, adapt the itinerary to suit your preferences and overall give you a holiday experience of a lifetime.
The balloon flight in Bagan was the highlight!
Dec 24 - Dec 29, 2018
The overall trip was very well organised and the guides and drivers were very punctual. The two local guides we had in Yangon, Ms Kyi Kyi Aye and Mr Min Thu Swe in Bagan were very knowledgeable and friendly. They made a big difference to the trip.

We had a fantastic time in Myanmar; it's a magical place. Our itinerary: One day, Yangon, two days in Bagan, two days in Mandalay, one day in Heho.
We took four internal flights, and we found the domestic airlines to be excellent. I felt more safe than on some US airlines. All we're prop planes.
The whole tour was great and the guides we're wonderful. They all had different strengths
Our guide in Yangon, Ong, was extremely knowledgeable. We called him as a nickname Google. And his... read more
Trip to Myanmar
Nov 5 - Nov 19, 2018
I enjoyed the complete trip, my guides, Thwe Thwe Gmtt, May Han Thu, Kyikyi Aye and Ko Zay were all very knowledgeable and fun to be with. Riding the bike in Yangan visiting the villages and seeing all the markets were very special for me not only as a photographer but to interact with the people. Being able to go to peoples homes and have shared meals was very memorable. Seeing lots of things and never feeling rushed. The Balloons over Bagan was an experience not to be missed.
