This package can start and end at Thandwe in stead of Yangon. The Rakhine State is still undeveloped for most aspects of tourism. Although Myanmar Elite will endeavor to obtain the best available accommodations, transport and facilities for guests, we would ask their understanding for any practical aspects which do not come up to expectations, and for delays or changes in itinerary. It is not recommended to travel this region during Monsoon season (June-mid-October), as heavy floods are common.
NOTE: Please be aware of that we'll endeavor to keep our programs mentioned as close as possible, however we reserve the rights to alter them without notice in case of unexpected changing or canceling of scheduled flights.
