    • Trekking Kalaw to Inle lake around MARCH 20th 2017

      Myanmar (Burma) 8 hours ago

      Good morning everyone, we're Paty and Paul, a young 26 yo couple, we live in Madrid, Spain. We're overexcited to discover Myanmar from 15-30 march 2017. We would like to do the trekking from Kalaw to Inle lake around MARCH 20th 2017. I would like to know a few things:

      -Do you guys think it's a good period to do the trekking? I'm scared of the extrem hot or humidity at this time
      -Is it really worth it (have seen some pics on google and blogs, but im not sure the views and landscapes will be as beautiful in march!) So, dont wanna walk for nothing if you understand me ;)
      -Which guide do you recommend? Have seen a lot of positive comments on A1 trekking guide tour. Have some of you done it with them?
      -Is it mandatory to do the rage's vaccine?

      thank you in advance for all your precious advices !!!

    • BB + Moorea in April or/vs May/Travel Agency/Plane/Places to stay Help!

      Bora-Bora Yesterday

      Hey,

      So - my mother is turning 60 next time. I'm hoping to take her to BB + Moorea as a surprise (but 2 months after her birthday - since her birthday coincides with my dive trip in march... yes bad me - but that makes it even more of a surprise). Our interests: swimming, snorkeling, adventure, boat rides, scenery. I'm 32 and I am in decent shape. My mother will be 60 and she's also is good shape (wouldn't call her a hiker though)

      Okay - so here's the deal - I need help - if you have to advice me on anything, question #1 is the MOST important because I have to choose my vacation week by the end of this week.

      1. 1 - Time Frame

      June - October - High Season and probably most $$$ so no
      December - March-ish (possibly April) = "wet season"
      I'm thinking I would like the highest chance at beautiful weather - understanding that nothing is guaranteed. So - here I'm thinking either April or May. I'm spending soooo much $$$ - I want the highest chance at great weather and a great trip (without having to pay for "high season").

      From my understanding April and November are shoulder seasons. I was thinking of doing early-mid May - does that seem reasonable/price-wise? Or is May when prices skyrocket?

      2- Travel Agencies:
      I know there's Costco - but I'm NOT sure how lenient they are to changing their set itineraries listed on their sites. Any advice on this is appreciated - please feel free to message me as well.

      3- Places to stay - May coincidence with #2
      Moorea: Garden Bungalow. Definitely would stay in Hilton Resort. I have the HH Hilton Visa - so my plan is to stay 5 nights in Moorea (have 3 free weekend nights from certificates) - so will only pay for 2 (through the agency and book 3 on my own).
      Bora Bora: ABOVE WATER BUNGALOW! This is a toughy - because the prices can be outrageous. I can tell you for a fact we would love a location with views of the Lagoon. I know Le Meridien's price point may work... BUT I've heard from people who've been there before that the water isn't crystal clear like the other locations. Any thoughts/suggestions on other places to stay?

      4- Planes - how to travel
      So... we would like to spend as much possible time in the actual locations (I understand travel can take up a lot of otherwise well spend time on the islands). We obviously have to fly out of Los Angeles - there are 2 planes that typically arrive - one in the morning and another at night. I'm think perhaps get the one that arrives at night - so we can maybe stay in Tahiti for the night (sleep?) then start our adventure to Moorea first then Bora Bora (not sure how the transfers between those Islands work). Any thoughts on this?

      5- Any must-do/must-see activities/suggestions?

      Finally - on a more selfish note - is it worth it to dive in BB/Moorea? I found a site where they have a set price and they provide full equipment (no extra baggage for me to carry)
      http://www.topdive.com/rates/

      Any suggestions/advice is appreciated

      Thanks!!!

    • Rats in Kalaw-Inle Lake trek?

      Kalaw Dec 7, 2016 at 5:17 AM

      Hello everyone,

      This may sound like a bit of a strange question. I was very excited about doing the Kalaw-Inle Lake trek until I read a review from someone saying the house where they stayed at a village was full of rats. I am EXTREMELY afraid of rats, to the point that if this is the case I won't do the trek at all.

      I understand that you may encounter a rat here and there when out and about and despite my phobia I can cope with it if I can "get away" from them if out in the open, but the thought of having rats running around me while I sleep is too much.

      Did anyone else encounter any rats during your trek? All and any information very very appreciated as I was ready to make bookings already but this may change my travel plans a fair bit now.

      Thanks in advance!!!

      Hello... We may be able to be in Amsterdam for New Year's Eve and are wondering if it's worth it since we don't know the area very well and don't want to fuss over not knowing where we are or how to get where we want to be. Our hotel would be near the airport. So, our questions are... Where are some of the best places to be to watch the fireworks and how concerned should we be about safety? Also, will it be easy to return to the airport in the wee hours of the morning on New Year's Day? ...... Any info would be appreciated...... thnks............

      Piercings in ireland

      Ireland Dec 6, 2016 at 10:39 AM

      This is a totally random question, but I was just wondering how popular piercings are in Ireland? I'm American and have a total of 14 including my tongue, lip, and 2 in my nose..I was just kind of wondering if it's generally accepted or if I'll be getting weird or judging looks from people when I go to visit? I realize it's more than likely not a big deal, but if people who live in Ireland or have visited and know how a majority of the people feel about facial piercings there, I would really appreciate hearing about it. I've never left the country and I'm nervous about everything haha
