The Schwedagon Pagoda in Yangon was endlessly fascinating, the myriad 11th-13th century temples at Bagan were an amazing sight, and swimming in the warm Indian ocean with the other members of the group while the sun went down over the sea was great fun, but I think that my favourite experience was the optional canoe trip on Inle Lake. I always enjoy boat trips, but in a canoe there is no engine noise, you glide soundlessly along, watching the locals in the floating villages carrying out their normal daily activities without disturbing them, and enjoying the beautiful scenery in peaceful tranquility. You also get to observe the unique rowing technique of the Inle lake boatmen at close quarters, using their feet as pivots while they push the oar through the water.
Very cheerful and good natured. No problems with organisation
The standard of accomodation and transport was very high for an adventure holiday. Obviously an advantage if you like comfort and beautiful surroundings, but if you were expecting that because of the long absence of British tourists in Myanmar you would have a less touristy and more 'authentic' experience of travel, you might be a little disappointed. On a practical note, you need to take all the money you need in US Dollars, it's very hard to use plastic or travellers cheques outside Yangon.
