Pegu Travels

As 24 years of experience DMC, possessing a deep knowledge of the classic destinations, we decided to take profit of the opening of the country to the world (from 2010) to start offering "off the beaten track" itineraries and unique experiences.

Since then, we have created many new routes together with the local communities and we are supporting all the projects of Myanmar related to sustainable and responsible tourism.

We are the only local agent in Myanmar offering such a variety of tours and going far into the wildest places usually untouched by mass tourism. The work of documenting and developing these places has been very accurate and it has taken many years.

Hence, it is a huge and honorable responsibility to be respectful with the local ethnic groups and the incredible landscapes of this extraordinary destination.

Local highlights of yangon, bagan and inle lake - 8 days, Myanmar - Aug 8 - Aug 13, 2019

Traveler: Su-Lin T. - Local specialist: Hsu Hlaing Phyo

Ms Hsu Hlaing was very closely in touch with us from the get-go. From the planning stage till the end of trip she kept in touch with us and our tour guides as our visit to Myanmar spanned across 3 states.

She also customised the trip to our preferences. Eg, we skipped Mount Popa and on hindsight it was a good decision as it was monsoon season and the day slated for it became an e-bike free and easy around Bagan and we were drenched before evening due to heavy rains. She also booked us lovely... read more

Ms Hsu Hlaing was very closely in touch with us from the get-go. From the planning stage till the end of trip she kept in touch with us and our tour guides as our visit to Myanmar spanned across 3 states.

She also customised the trip to our preferences. Eg, we skipped Mount Popa and on hindsight it was a good decision as it was monsoon season and the day slated for it became an e-bike free and easy around Bagan and we were drenched before evening due to heavy rains. She also booked us lovely accommodations that wished we had more time there!

We loved our trip that (We after all only had 5 nights in Myanmar) we were able to see very much of the attractions despite the 3 transfer flights between cities. We even had free and easy time.

On top of that, on our 2nd last day, we were able to totally change the itinerary on a last minute notice because we discovered vineyards in Inle! So our morning Mountain Biking trip became a lovely market visit and wine-tasting before we flew back to Yangon.

Overall we had a 5-star experience booking through Kimkim and Hsu Hlaing and would recommend this to anyone who wishes to visit Yangon

Highlights of mandalay and bagan - 5 days, Myanmar - Jun 27 - Jul 1, 2019

Traveler: Nick C. - Local specialist: Hsu Hlaing Phyo

Amazing trip to Myanmar with Kimkim, Hsu Hlaing and our guides Tonn Tonn (Mandalay) and Min (Bagan). Itinerary was truly flexible and well planned - we managed to see so much! We felt this was also a really good value trip - all expecteds were included, hotels were really nice, tour was truly private and the price was very reasonable.

We felt our local specialist supported us well and was available for queries or for itinerary changes.

Traveler: Deborah S. - Local specialist: Hsu Hlaing Phyo

Planning process with Hsu Hlaing was very smooth and she obviously had a lot of experience. She was very responsive, communicative and proactive and made the whole experience getting our ideal itinerary so easy as a local expert.

Both our guides, Tunn tunn in Mandalay and Min in Bagan were excellent - friendly and professional and had so much to share with us about the history, people and culture of Myanmar.

Overall a great experience and would highly recommend for planning your dream trip with minimum fuss!

The Kim Kim app Is easy to use and eases communication between you and the tour operator they put you in touch with. Hsu Hlaing made me feel that her main concern was for my trip to meet expectations in every aspect. A free call at the planning stage with an international consultant helped set expectations, flexibility on the itinerary was offered along the way, the guides were informative and hotels well chosen. It’s a real personalized service. It may be cheaper to organise everything yourself or directly with a tour operator, but if you have a busy life and little time to sit and plan going through Kim Kim and having the reassurance of a recommended agency to help you plan and execute your trip is a definite advantage and one I would recommend.

I booked a last minute (quite literally) trip to Myanmar and arranged a trekking experience with the help of Monica and her team. Monica was instrumental in ensuring an absolute seamless travel experience and I got a lot more out of my travels than I expected. I couldn't recommend Monica highly enough, she is very pleasant to speak to, highly knowledgable and assisted in putting together a pacakage that fit exactly the kind of trip I wanted to have - in my case a solo, genuine experience of Myanmar and the local tradition and culture. Thanks again Monica for going above and beyond - I had a great time and now look forward to returning!
