As a poor bagpacking university student, I was very grateful to Asian Tour for helping to give me recommendations to exotic places I had never dreamt of going... Read More
Wir haben die Tour Yangon, Bagan und Thandwe gewählt. Dei Sehenswürdigkeiten in Yangon wurden uns in einer interessanten 2-TagesTour (jeweils am Nachmittag/Abend) gezeigt. Der absolute Höhepunkt war die Atmosphäre in Shwedagon Pagode am Abend, einzigartig :-). Die Abholung vom Hotel und die Fahrt zum Flughafen am nächsten Tag war pünktlich. Wir sind dann nach Bagan geflogen, ist auch sehr zu empfehlen. Die teilweise 2000 Jahre alten Tempel sind einzigartig.... Read More
