We will always try our best to book hotels as per the itinerary, however, in busy seasons and during local festivals, as well for late bookings, it may be necessary to offer substitutes.
Prices are subject to availability and as such are for guidance only. To help secure these prices, it is best to book as far in advance as possible.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you are in possession of all necessary travel and health documents before departure. We regret that we cannot accept liability if you are refused entry onto any transport or into any country due to failure on your part to carry correct documentation. If failure to have all necessary travel and other documents results in fines, surcharges or other financial penalty being imposed on us, you will be responsible for reimbursing us accordingly.
Visas & Travel Insurance -
Visas are required by all tourists to Myanmar. The easiest way to obtain a tourist visa is directly at the Myanmar Embassy. Due to a recent change in policy at the Ministry of Home Affairs, all new Visa On Arrival applications are rejected.
We strongly recommend that all clients find a comprehensive travel insurance policy that offers a high level of cover for the full duration of the tour. Travel insurance is advised to cover personal injury, medical expenses, costs associated with repatriation to home country, compensation for loss of luggage, and expenses associated with the cancellation, postponement, or delay of a tour. The client acknowledges that in the event of injury or illness, all doctors’ fees, hospital costs, and repatriation expenses are the responsibility of the client and the company will in no way be responsible or liable for the refund of the tour cost. It is the responsibility of the client to ensure they are receiving an adequate level of insurance cover and to read the full terms and conditions of their travel insurance prior to travel.
Please check with your doctor or health professional on the type of vaccinations you may require to travel to Indochina and ensure that you give enough time before departure to undergo any course of vaccination/medication required.
Other important info -
In case of bad weather or other reasons that are out of our control we reserve the right to alter or change a travel itinerary at any time. Security and well being of our customers is our top priority.
It is important to note that traveler cheques are generally not accepted in Myanmar. ATMs in Myanmar cannot usually be used to withdraw money. The local CB and KBZ bank officially accept Master, Visa, Maestro and Cirrus Cards. The network of ATM machines cover the most visited cities in Myanmar by tourists and business travelers such as Yangon, Mandalay, Taunggyi, Pyin Oo Lwin, Kalaw, Nay PyiDaw, Nyaung Oo, Nyaung Shwe and Muse. Maximum amount per withdrawal is MMK 300,000 and daily maximum amount of withdrawal is MMK 1,000,000 subject to the limit set up by the issuing bank. The ATMs charge a small fee of MMK 5000 or equivalent for each transaction. Some visa cards are restricted by the issuing bank for oversea usage and therefore, customers may require seeking the approval of the issuing bank in order to do so.
However,the withdrawal of cash doesn’t work always. We still recommend that visitors must bring sufficient cash (best in USD but also EUR is more and more accepted). All notes must be in pristine condition (no creases, fold lines, blueprints, etc.). Make sure serial numbers do not begin with CB as this will possibly result in the bill’s rejection due to rumors these series are counterfeit. Money can be exchanged at the current market rate at the airport or at any licensed money changer on presentation of your passport. Please ask your tour guide for assistance.
