Mandalay | Backstage Mandalay

Considered to be the arts and crafts centre of the country, Mandalay has successfully maintained the legacy of its traditional arts since its glory days as the royal capital. Meet the founder behind Arts Mandalay, a non-profit foundation focused on preserving traditional classic dance, arts and theatre, and learn about their passionate efforts in not only carrying on the tradition but also providing a future for young Burmese. Join a class at the Inwa Art School and Mintha Theatre and admire the young talented performers recreate a traditional Burmese dance repertoire.

Day 5
Amarapura, Myanmar
None None

Amarapura | Gold Leaf Making & The Art of Marionette

A former royal capital from the 18th century, Amarapura today is best known for the U-Bein Bridge, the longest teakwood bridge in the world, and as the centre of gold leaf making cottage industries. The golden Buddha statues that you see throughout the country are in fact covered by layers upon layers of the gold leaf foil. Visit a family-run gold leaf making workshop to observe the pounding of 24k pure gold and gain a better appreciation of the intensive labor that goes into producing thousands of thin sheets of gold foil. Purchase a packet of gold leaf as souvenir or to make an offering to the Buddha on your next temple visit.

Mandalay is also home to the original marionette puppetry. Visit a performance theatre where a marionette master will provide the background history before a hands-on puppet making workshop. After creating your own puppet, the marionette master will teach you the tricks in maneuvering the delicate puppet with the strings.

Day 6
Inle Lake, Myanmar
None None

Inle Lake | Lotus Silk Weaving

Inle Lake, located in the Shan State, is the second largest freshwater lake in the country. The lake is a vital resource for the surrounding local villages, not only for fishery and the floating vegetable gardens, but also for its fertile ground for lotus stems. Unique to Inle Lake is lotus silk weaving, which involves the process of spinning the lotus stem fibres into silk threads. Visit a family dedicated to producing high quality lotus silk and learn the entire process, from extracting the lotus stem fibres to weaving the lotus silk into a scarf. After this experience, you will understand why it takes about 4,000 lotus stems to produce a small neck scarf.

Day 7
Pindaya Caves, Pindaya, Myanmar
None None

Pindaya | Shan Paper Parasol

Located 68km from Taunggyi, Pindaya attracts visitors for its limestone caves and handmade paper parasols. Visit a family-run workshop and learn the paper making process from stripping the mulberry bark to drying the pulp before it becomes paper. Choose your preferred paper design and color, and be guided by a craftsman to create your own parasol. Take the parasol back as a souvenir or use it as sun protection for the rest of your trip!

Day 8
Bagan, Myanmar
None None

Bagan | Hands-on Laquerware Workshop

Formerly known as Pagan, this ancient town was the capital of several ancient Burmese kingdoms. A deeply spiritual place, the plains of Bagan are home to more than two thousand temples that date as far back as the 11th century. It is believed that the exquisite Burmese lacquer originated in Bagan, with the oldest lacquerware discovered in the 13th century Mingalazedi pagoda.

Spend a half day in one of Bagan’s prestigious lacquerware workshop where a master artisan will provide insight into the history and methodology of this intricate art. Observe each step of the painstaking lacquermaking process from bamboo weaving; from giving shape to the object to the fine etch drawing on the finished lacquer. Though you are not expected to create a piece of lacquer from scratch, you are invited to add the final touches to your selected lacquer piece to take home as souvenir!

Day 9
Bagan, Myanmar
None None

Bagan | Art of Religion

Art is an integral part of religion in Myanmar. Much of the extraordinary art, from paintings to sculptures, can be found at many of the religious monuments throughout the country. In fact, the teachings of Theravada Buddhism were spread through the art medium from mural paintings inside temples to sculptures of Buddha. An expert on Bagan’s history and religion will join you on a guided visit to several key temples and pagodas, offering insight to the meaning and symbolism of the architecture and art.

Day 10
Yangon, Myanmar
None None

Yangon | Antique Shopping with Dr Kaung Htet

The British occupied Burma for more than a century and nowhere is this more evident than in Yangon, once known as Rangoon, the former capital city under British rule. Exquisite heritage buildings and wide boulevards define the city’s intriguing past. Less evident is the display of British colonial furniture and collectibles, which require insider knowledge to discover. A locally-based antique collector will join you on a treasure hunt in the city, guiding you to shops and homes of private antique collectors to discover the hidden gems from yesteryear.

Day 11

I just wanted to share with you my feelings regarding the services provided by TOI.I was more than impressed to say the least. First of all because the guide was so knowledgeable and perfectly fluent in English (his name was Sochea) but also because he went the extra mile every time he could without asking for anything. I overheard several other guides during our visits and it's clear that what they were saying wasn't remotely as convincing and interesting as what Sochea told us. He truly should be recognized for his hard work and good mood.The driver was also very nice and kind (his name was Mony).Several persons at the hotel told me I made a stupid decision by paying 3/4 times more than what I should have for a guide compared to what the hotel could provide me with for instance but I don't regret it at all and it was worth every cent.

This is the best tour company I have ever used.  All of the guides that we had were outstanding.  Most everything worked like clockwork.  There were only two glitches.  When we arrived in Phnom Pehh, our guide and driver did not show up.  It turned out that our driver had been in an  accident.  The man who answered the phone did come to pick us up.  However, when the office learned about the accident, they should have sent someone to meet us.  The hotel we stayed in in Phnom Penn was not satisfactory.  It was  the Amanjaya Hotel. We were not met when we arrived was in Luang Prabang. Maybe it  was not their fault. Our plane arrived one hour early but they should have checked.  The Karavansara Retreat hotel was not acceptable. All the other hotels were outstanding. I especially want to commend Hau David, our tour guide in  Hoi An and Hue. He was the best guide we have ever had.

I'm not sure how much they helped with my trip. I did all the tour research and found all the "must do" things to do. Only used them to save $100 on the hotel room.

Friendly Service

Overall, our experience was a great one. The drivers, tour guides, etc were all there to pick us up and get us to where we were going and everyone was extremely friendly and outgoing. We did have a minor issue with a few additional charges that we were given and we were not told (at all) that any of them would have been an extra charge. Additionally, our tour guide in Bali seemed to be really pushing us to sign on to additional tours with him on days that we had chosen to be on our own. Our experience on Lombok was top-notch, however in Bali, the tour guides were much more chatty with what seemed their prescribed talk and not so attentive to specific questions that we had. Additionally, when we were picked up for our bike tour, the guide asked to see our itinerary, as he had no idea what we were supposed to be doing. We ended up not doing a number of activities outlined on the itinerary and instead just did what the guide wanted to do. We had a great time, but these were concerns.

Three countries, three different guides and drivers, and not one that wasn't perfect. They all spoke very good English. They were able to adapt to changes in planned itinerary due to sudden physical limitation. They were courteous and thoughtful. Everyone was were they were supposed to be when they were supposed to be. What more can you ask for when you get off a plane in a strange country after flying for hours and hours, but to see a smiling face, ready to take you and your luggage to your hotel and make you feel comfortable with a cool towel and water? Sure you can go out of the airport, grab and cab and fight over the fare for less money, but is it really worth it to start your holiday like that? Trails is a truly professional organization that I would not hesitate to recommend.

We planned a 15-day trip for Vietnam and Cambodia using Trails of Indochina as the local agency. From start to finish it was a marvelous trip. Trails proved invaluable when we were delayed and missed a connection. Somehow they found us seats on overbooked flights that the local airline agent hadn't been able to find. This literally saved our trip. The itinerary in both countries was interesting, hitting all the high spots that the time allowed. The local guides spoke excellent English and were incredibly knowledgeable and hospitable. They and the drivers went out of their way to make sure that we were comfortable and well cared for. Our hotels were premium accommodations throughout: clean, comfortable, luxurious rooms; wonderful breakfasts; smiling, caring, and sweet staff. Because everything was made so easy for us and so very pleasant, I felt like I could have stayed forever and was very sorry to head for home. Thanks for a trip of a lifetime!

Had a truly great time seeing Hanoi and then spending two nights in Ha Long Bay on a terrific boat. In Hanoi we were picked up in a vintage Army surplus Jeep and treated to some of the local eateries where no tourist could find on their own. We traveled into the old part of the city and experienced some of best food and sights! The hotel was also amazing. Very comfortable and a breakfast that had three different stations. Wow! We then went to Ha Long Bay and spent three days/two nights seeing this amazing placed--named a Wonder of the World in 2011. We had an 80 foot boat to ourselves with seven crew members taking care of our every wish! W bought a huge fish as the fishing village and the crew cooked it to perfection for us.

We were really impressed with the accommodations and experiences that Trails provided. We had terrific guides that were knowledgeable and seemed to be as interested in us as we were with them and the places we visited. If there is a minor grumble, it is the night on the boat in Hanoi Bay. We don’t have an answer/solution, but there might be a better way to go about it than a 3+ hour ride to the boat, a short stay on the boat, and then a 3+ hour ride to the airport. It made it feel like the ‘forced march’ part of our trip. In addition, it would be nice if the delivering guide held on to your large suitcases while you are on the bay; the rooms are small! The Killing Field and S-21 are a tough pill, but it does give you a history that most Americans simply are under educated about. Overall, we highly recommend Trails and enjoyed our trip! -J*G

This was a good tour company, provided excellent guides, drivers, and lovely comfortable vans. We saw some wonderful sites and had some lovely experiences. We especially loved the elephant sanctuary, the cooking class near Chiang Mai, and the White Temple at Chiang Rai. Our only criticism was the 4 hour ride to the Golden Triangle on our last day. Not much to see there, we could have looked at pictures and saved several hours in the van. It was a big disappointment, and not worth the very long ride. (It took 5 hours to get back to our hotel) We would also have been happy to skip the visit to the tourist-trap at the Myanmar border, and the "traditional village", where we were accosted by the locals trying to sell us junk. We would not recommend this to anyone! The visit to Chiang Rai was lovely, and worth the two hour ride, but we wish our guide had given us a clue that the second part of the day was just a waste of time. Overall though, the rest of the trip was great!

It really WAS a mixed bag. Some of the printed info about tours was inaccurate or misleading. Communications were not always great. We were supposed to have 2 days in one destination, but ended up having significantly less. Had we known a bit earlier, we might have made some changes. But there was a lot of confusion and it really impacted what should have been a great time. A whole day was compressed in to a few hours, and we were really limited in what we could do.

Our journey on the Angkor Pandaw was above expectations. The accommodation,food and service were excellent. It took a little while for us to get used to the rubbish in the river and the countryside and the extent of industrialisation along the river however it helped us to better understand the country. All the tours off the boat were interesting and enhanced by our guide. The only disappointment was after we left the boat for the return by bus to Hanoi. The stopover for lunch was a low quality tourist trap with poor quality food and service and was a "letdown" after our boat experience. All our fellow travellers were of the same opinion. It would have been better to have some boxed food from the boat to eat and toilet stop only.
