    Cycling in Myanmar

    Great way to meet the locals and see the main sights of this beautiful country

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    All the children coming to wave and shout mingalarbar as we went through villages Beautiful temples

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Alex is a great leader, very organised and passionate about cycling. His English is very good and clear but he didn't often eat with the group so not everyone got chance to chat with him, he gave brief descriptions of the places visited but only gave more general info if asked. This for me was the right balance and as we often rode at the front had more time to chat to him. I think others felt he didn't impart enough info.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The trip notes say that you need to cover up on the rides but wearing cycling kit is fine. You do need to cover up when visiting temples but this can be carried on the bus until you get there. We had a kitty for snacks and water, this was excellent and we didn't need the bars or energy tablets we had taken as sachets were available along with fresh fruit, crisps,nuts, biscuits etc. Most of the rides are broken up into 15km segments so easily manageable. Mosquito repellent and sun lotion are a must. The hill up to Mt Popa is not that bad, go for it !!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    The Burmese people are very friendly and like to take pictures of tourists, which we found quite amusing. The bikes are all well maintained and the mechanic is great and can change a puncture in a few minutes. We extended our trip with a few days at Nagapali beach, the hotel and food here was very good and the location is stunningly beautiful. A great way to relax after all that cycling.

    Bagan a temple.... Or 6000 or so....

    Had a great time on a great well organised and fantastically staffed and supported trip. The group all got on well and everything went to plan save for a few tummy upsets and one of us taking a bath down an open drain in Mandalay.... Oops... Thankfully no serious injury but could have been a disaster so keep your eyes peeled in dark streets...

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The resilience and kindness of the Myanmar people... I can't believe how happy and friendly these people are and how hard most of them work to try and get by.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Group leader was 100% reliable, organised and patient with us, always ready to answer questions and with a good grasp of English and our western culture. He kept us right and always gave good advice about where to try what to eat and how to respect the local cultures and expected behaviours. Friendly, tolerant and With a good team that seemed to get on well with him

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Enjoy and be a bit of a Buddhist for a couple of weeks.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Would be good if you can use more back roads and maybe seek advice of in country peeps to get more cycling off the beaten track... We seemed to be on quite main roads a lot of the time. We could also have perhaps done an extra hours cycling most days

    Burmese days to remember!

    A great trip. Cycling around was a fantastic way to see and experience the country which is clearly on the brink of some big changes. The programme is slickly managed by Alex and his team from beginning to end Withe the result that any unnecessary stress is taken out and allowing you to fully enjoy the countryside, people and colour of Burma.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    There were a lot of memorable moments which include the big ticket sights like the U Bein bridge outside Mandalay, the fishermen on Inle lake and the temples of Bagan but also the insights into the everyday lives of the people of Burma, we were very lucky to witness a wedding and an initiation ceremony for some novice monks. Not being a very experienced cyclist it was a relief that this was not too gruelling and was really satisfying as my fitness/stamina improved over the course of 2 weeks.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Alex was very well organised and professional throughout. Everything seemed to run very smoothly and he struck the right balance between being friendly, informative and responding to questions without being overbearing. He and the team were a real plus for the trip and I felt very well supported throughout.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Take a Gell saddle if you're not used to lots of cycling and don't forget a water bottle for the bike.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    If you're interested in seeing Burma and enjoy being out in the open with some fairly moderate physical exercise this is a great way to do it. Go now as it seems that a major development boom is already underway!

    One of the very best cycling trips we've done

    We really loved this cycling holiday! - more than I was expecting, as some of the prior reviews had been less than stellar, but Exodus have made changes and it went very well indeed. The Burmese people, scenery, climate,and food were all wonderful. We were in a great group of 10 of varying ages, interests and stories to share. Before leaving I was concerned that maybe there might not be enough cycling for my taste, but it was enough for me, and typical of their other moderate cycling holidays. I see this as a “use cycling as an enabler to see the real Myanmar”, rather than as a cycling holiday in a nice location. The total distance is around 440km over 11 days, ranging from 16 to 60 km. Hotels were overall good; better than I’d anticipated. Most provided coffee making stuff, hot showers. Some were wonderful with pools and spas. Wifi was provided in all, but their access to the internet was poor so it was common to connect but have no access, or very slow intermittent access. The bikes are new Trek Marlin 7’s with 29” wheels on the larger frames, and 650’s (I think) on the smaller. They were meticulously maintained by the mechanic. Tires were fat, which I realized were needed within a few km on our first day – there are several off-road sections with rocks or soft sand, which would be very muddy in the wet season. Roads were excellent with few significant potholes (way better than in India on last year’s trip, or back home in Canada). The support team provided water, sports-drink powder, fruit and snacks at the rest stops, which were generally every 15km or so.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Highlights were cycling through villages and watching the children, dogs, women and men go about their daily lives. Scenery in the Shan region is spectacular, as are the iconic sights in Bagan.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Trip organization was great. We had two leaders (Alex and Naing) which is unusual for our group size of 10. They worked seamlessly together and kept us safe and educated. At busy junctions they’d stop traffic for us! Alex’s restaurant recommendations were very reliable.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The weather (February) was 100% sun, with cool nights (10C) in the Inle Lake region (1250 m elevation), warming up to around 25-30C in the afternoon. Bagan, Mandalay and Yangon (all 50m elevation or thereabouts) were 25C at night and 30-35C in the afternoon. All hotels had AC, and the Inle Lake ones had blankets and one even an electric blanket! So bring a long sleeved top for the first hour or so of the daily ride when at high elevation. I spent less than the trip notes would suggest. Mostly a simple dish like fried rice was $2 and a Burmese curry $2.50, and more fancy fare $4. Fish was always good. A 650ml beer bottle was between $2-4 at a restaurant and $1.20 in the supermarkets. Breakfasts were usually good – unless you insist on Western food, but even then there was something. I ate well at breakfast for the day’s ride, and then a light lunch The trip is rated as ‘moderate’ which I think is accurate; you certainly need at least basic bike handling skills as some descents are steep with loose gravel or sand. You need to be reasonably fit too, as otherwise not only would you hold up the group but you wouldn’t enjoy it as much. We heard of people who have done bike trips (not this one) with only spin class experience – that’s crazy, and a recipe for disaster.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Exodus are looking at feedback and are actively tweaking this trip to improve it - we experienced changes to the (old) trip notes that worked well! I was told that the trip cost is (relative to other SE Asian trips) high due to the cost of hotels which are expected to reduce as the tourist industry develops.

    Great mix of cycling and culture

    Loved it! Myanmar is a wonderful country and cycling is the perfect way to see it. The guides were energetic, enthusiastic and informative. Organisation was excellent and health and safety was always a top priority. My expectations were for the cycling to be tougher - however, the rating of difficulty is too high (3). It's really a 2 (if you have done any cycling in the last 6 months). You could potter along taking photos if you wanted to, and there was still plenty of time. That said, it was such a wonderful mixture of culture and cycling, all you need to do is change your mindset if you are in anyway a serious cyclist. I thoroughly recommend it. A minor quibble is the restaurants for dinner - there were too many bland tourist ones - but I think they were playing safe. Some of us picked up food poisoning in spite of that.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Bagan at sunset is a wonderfully, magical place. On the second day there stop off at one of the temples just as you approach Bagan (or take a taxi back out to it if you are back early). The one you are taken to on Day 1 in Bagan is quite crowded.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Alex and Naing were great. Contrasting characters, but were intent on us having a good and safe time.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The balloon rides at Bagan are expensive but apparently well worth it. A lot of us left it too late to book - so do this option on booking if you want it. Lake Inle gets cold. Bring insect repellent

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    We spent 5 nights at Ngapali beach afterwards - perfect!

    John Hayes

    A great experience facilitated by a very good local crew. It's really a tour of the cultural highlights of Burma joined together with cycle rides - sometimes there were too many places to visit and not enough time on the bike. The itinerary was overambitious at times and the trip could be improved with a little judicious pruning. I blog and a more extensive review can be found at - http://www.johnhayeswalks.com/2015/01/burma-by-bike.html

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Cycling through the countryside along the top of a levee near Monywaa. The warmth of the welcome from locals was wonderful - life affirming! The second day cycling along the west side of Inle Lake was also excellent - great to see the fisherman driving their boats with their legs.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Alex was excellent and it was a very well resourced trip. Slight thing, but strong guidance on where to eat on the 'free nights' was sometimes a bit thin - the restaurants organised by Alex were always better than the self-organised ones.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The trip notes need updating - if you go in January at least you definitely don't need a mosquito net and there would be nowhere to hang one if take it. Apart from one hotel all the rooms had AC and given that tourism is relatively new in Burma the accommodation was much better than I expected.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    The bikes were very good, but the huge mountain bike tyres were hard work. On a previous Exodus trip, on similar terrain, the tyres were lighter and easier. This is a good trip, but could have been a great one with a little tweaking.

    A trip full of variety and smiles!

    Having just returned from this cycling trip I feel like I have brought a little bit of Myanmar home with me. Such a captivating country with wonderful people it's hard not to be affected by the continuous smiles and warm spirit of the people met en route. Cycling really is the best way to experience this beautiful country and we all felt privileged to be off the main tourist trail for some of the trip as well as seeing the main sites.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The fact that every day was hugely varied was a surprise to all the group. The landscape was constantly changing as we passed through small rural villages surrounded by huge eucalyptus avenues as well as smaller towns giving us an insight into the rapidly changing Myanmar as well as the age-old traditions that still govern much of the countryside.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Alex and Naing did a wonderful job of leading the group. They are both keen to teach you as much as possible about their country as well as ensure you have some brilliant cycling time.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Go now! It really is a country undergoing significant changes - if cycling around Bagan's incredible temple complex and seeing not one other person appeals then make sure you book on fairly soon!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    As above!

    Burma By Bike Oct 25 to Nov 7

    The trip ran smoothly from beginning to end and covered both popular tourist hotspots and areas rarely visited by Western People.The cycling had a great variety of difficulty and terrain.The roads were reasonable and generally better than Sri Lanka.The culture of the country was wonderful and at times it felt like you were stepping back in time.Given that the national election was foremost at the time of our trip it was great to see history about to evolve and the expectant joy of people moving towards democracy.The love for [THE LADY]the MOTHER OF DEMOCRACY was moving to say the least

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Apart from the move towards democracy I think that the realisation that the people of Myanmar have nothing but in some ways they have everything and we who think we have everything really have nothing.I think the people of Myanmar were the inspiration because they have endured so much and are still so gentle and grounded

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Like Suresh from Sri Lanka a good leader makes or breaks these tours and Alex really was brilliant and led his team so very well.Special mention to the mechanic who patched me up twice after two accidents.On both occasions he cleaned me up and I didnt suffer any infections from grazes and cuts.Alex was also tremendous at these times.Alex gave us as a group great flexibility and it was much appreciated.I must say it was a very mature group and became very bonded quickly.The thing I think is important to highlight is how Alex and the mechanic interacted with their own people.It was always polite and with older villages it was really noticeable they listened and spoke up to them never down to them.Their kindness to children and infants was outstanding and on one occasion bringing a tear to the eye[small boy who didnt have a father wanted both lads to stay and protested greatly as we were leaving]

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Dont expect Hollywood.It is a very poor emerging country full of hope but is not really geared to handle the hordes of tourists that are increasing by the day.This is especially so in the tourist hotspots but the fact that you are on a bike tour allows you the great balance of seeing the rural areas and attractions there that arent yet opened to tour buses and the like.Biking is the only way to go but ensure you bring a good small medical kit eg spray on skin[I didnt but was lucky someone else thought to ]The tour covers a range of cycling experience which is really handy as if you are having an off day in the saddle you are not causing issues as everyone is catered for.The age range was 36 to 69 and there were 14 of us .It worked really well.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    The importance of having a good local guide was obvious in the tourist hotspots,we got a bigger bang for our buck than say a bus load of German tourists with their own German guide.I want to commend Exodus for doing this and their choice of local people .As with Sri Lanka and Myanmar the guides were outstanding people and this is why people speak highly of the company and elect to reuse you,Exodus owes a great debt to people such as Alex.

    Burma by Bike - Monsoonal Myanmar 2015

    All in all a great trip; well organised with a good standard of accommodation and food. Great bikes which was the main point as it made the riding enjoyable regardless of the terrain and conditions.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Inle Lake was truly amazing; I felt it was an area you could spend longer and just do day rides, and visit more places from that location. Would be a great place for a centre based ride.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Alex was forever patient dealing with all our demands in a tactful manner to make the group work. Backup was generally solid if sometimes a little slow off the mark with the snacks due to the differing speeds of the group.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    If you are going during the monsoon season (makes it kind of fun so don't be put off) take good wet weather gear and lots of quick dry gear; drying is slow with the humidity so you need to have at least 3 of everything. Take rubber shoes to wear in the evening as you will get wet feet. Team were great with umbrellas but feet are the main thing t think about, but at least it is rarely cold unless the wet and wind team up as they did occasionally.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Consider organising a visit to the gem museum in Myanmar or seeing the gems somewhere on the trip as this is such a major industry for Myanmar.

    Burma by bike

    A brilliant trip, varied, well organised giving an opportunity to see a lot of this fascinating country.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Many: the Shan highlands, cycling on dirt roads through villages. Bagan at sunset

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Aung Wei Ming (Alex) was an excellent guide: Friendly, knowledgeable and efficient as was the whole support team.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Be aware, some of the roads are busy with pollution from deisel engines. Take swimming costume. Some of the hotels have pools!

    Cycling Myanmar

    A wonderful trip, great group of cyclists, excellent accommodation and a fascinating country !

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The Plain of Bagan - the initial reason for choosing Myanmar asa destination. The experience was topped by an opportunistic hot air balloon ride over the Plain of Bagan. Mesmerizing ! Why it is not one of the stated wonders of the World is beyond me !

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Alex is an excellent group leader - a gentle man who invests time to ensure his guest cyclists are truly looked after !

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Visis Myanmar, experience the changing culture and political climate; meet the beautiful, friendly people and be sure to take a balloon ride over the Plain of Bagan !

    BURMA IN THE 'RAW'

    Reiterate review by John O'Donnell and Kate Thompson

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The Temples of Bagan

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Alex - superb

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Readers of reviews in addition to respecting them need to take into consideration the knowledge and experience of the other persons who have posted reviews. I have posted this review to support and reiterate the comments and feedback of John O Donnell and Kate Thompson as I was on the same trip. I have noticed a negative review not from the same trip but from appropriately the same time and am difficultly in understanding how you can not be inspired in Myanmar and on this trip. It must be remembered that Myanmar is in its infancy as far as tourism is concerned and that is precisely why I went.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Take an objective view to reviews (but always respect them) and read as many as you can to get more balanced feedback on an individual trip. Make your mind up whether you think the reviewer is a traveller or a tourist!!

    Burma by bike

    We were disappointed with the hotels up to when we had to return home. Our disappointment was reinforced on our return when we talked to friends who went on a tour with you last year and said that their hotels were of a good standard. The Hudin was their worst and sadly it was one of our best. We would certainly not consider another holiday with Exodus without knowing the hotel names and quality before we book.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Nothing stood out as being inspirational on this trip.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    He was fine. The only comment I would make is that his local knowledge of basic things like common plants and places was not as thorough as it could have been

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Make sure you find out the names and quality of the hotels before you go.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    We were not happy with the handling of our proposed return flight by the Yangon office. There seemed a dubious mixup about the cost of the flight. We booked it ourself at tge originally quoted price in the end as we thought it was suspiciously high.

    Two absolutely wonderful weeks!

    Two absolutely wonderful weeks, full of interesting experiences, great sights, fun cycling, good food, the company of friendly fellow cyclists - and the wonderful people of Myanmar. I can't rate it highly enough.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Cycling through villages, with children waving, the mountains in the background, chanting coming from the temples... And floating back down Inle Lake on the boats after a day's cycling. And the temples of Bagan. And colonial Yangon. And the people of Myanmar. It's all amazing! Also wonderful to be there just before the election and feeling that democracy really may be on the way.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Alex is a wonderful leader: helpful, organised, funny, friendly. Speaks great English. Really wants people to enjoy the trip - and we did. A real credit to Exodus and Myanmar!

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Just do it! You need a reasonably good level of fitness as some of the days are quite long, it's hot and the roads are rough in places. Take old clothes - there's a bit of mud involved when it rains, but it's all part of the fun. Don't race. Half the fun is in tootling along, looking at the countryside. The balloon trip over Bagan is well worth doing. Buy a copy of Finding George Orwell in Burma when you get there, from a street market in Yangon.

    Cycling is the best way to see Myanmar!

    We just returned from this cycling trip and it was excellent in every way. Cycling is definitely the best way to see this country as we were able to go places were few tourists go. Exodus have recently tweaked the itinerary and have engaged a new and very slick local team.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    We loved riding through little villages were they obviously did not see many tourists. The people are so friendly. We also loved seeing the novice monk ceremony that just happened to be going on in a village we were driving through.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Meeting the local Exodus teams was certainly one of the many highlights for us. Alex (local leader 1)  has surrounded himself with an impressive team. He is a wonderful leader and everything ran like clockwork.  The internal flights and the check in procedures at the hotels were smooth. We felt  safe on the bike at all times and the busier traffic was handled in a very organised, well drilled way. Naing (local leader 2) was just gorgeous and it was such a priviledge to meet him. His enthusiasm for everything was inspiring and the knowledge he shared with us about his country and Buddism really enhanced our visits to all of the monasteries and sites. 

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Read the trip notes and make sure you order new US dollars to take. The $100 notes attract the best exchange rate and the airport did surprisingly give us the best rate of anywhere for the whole tour. Take some smaller denominations for the snack and tipping kitty.  Some restaurants also accept US in the more touristy parts. Be adventurous and order the local food. We went with low expectations about the food and the it was another highlight for us. Whilst a certain level of fitness is required, this tour is not just about the cycling. Visiting the smaller villages where there do not see many tourists is a real treat. Take the time to stop and take some photos and engage with the locals. You won't regret it.

    BURMA BY BIKE

    I can't imagine a better way to experience Myanmar/Burma than cycling with other cyclists, and our excellent team of guides and supporters. On the bike you see, feel, smell and absorb this interesting country and it's people. We learnt so much from Myo, our leader, about Burma's history whilst cycling around wonderful countryside, visiting historic sights and resting in tea shops en route. Myo chose places for us to see that he believed would interest us all, and he got it right. His team could not have been more kind and helpful, and fun. They got our sense of humour! I just loved it all.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    This is such a hard question to answer. Myo's lungi demonstration is up there with the cave art and stupas! I am still processing it all. Bagan is very special, and Inle lake. Cycling in these regions added to their beauty and impact.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    I think you will have gathered that our leader Myo was fantastic. Myo and his team made the trip a huge success. They could not do enough for us. Myo answered questions and provided information at all times. The only time he took a break was when he was eating his favourite Burmese dish! Pho and Tun, our guides and mechanic (Tun) enjoyed answering questions as it gave them a chance to practice their English and join in the fun. The "background" team of drivers and principal bike mechanic were always with us, and willing to sort out any glitches, and shop for snacks.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The roads are bumpy and dusty in general, so come well padded and bring a face mask if you can bear to wear one. I wish I had because the dust and fumes were tough to cope with when cycling through towns and when cycling on roads that are in the process of being built. Ask Myo to help you manage any dietary requirements. He will if he can. The snacks include fruit at all times, lots of cool water, and sweet snacks. If you can't manage wheat, you might think of bringing some snacks to suit your needs. When staying for more than one night in one hotel, you can get your clothes laundered, so you can pack less. Get your training in, the fitter you are the more you will enjoy it. But you will never cycle alone because there will always be a guide at the back! Enjoy testing a variety of loos en route, or head for the bushes!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    The itinerary changed at the last moment causing some confusion for independent travellers but Exodus compensated us with a free dinner one evening, which was appreciated. The hotel in Yangon is not great, but the one in Mandalay is wonderful. I travelled independently, so I'll leave the others to comment on their long journey to and from Yangon. I flew a "shorter" route via Doha and found the journey very comfortable with short stop overs.

    BURMA BY BIKE

    If you have any doubts about travelling to Burma then my advice would be to go for it. This is a fantastic country to visit. There is so much that will inspire and everywhere you meet people who are courteous, friendly and willing to assist you on your journey.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    You visit many temples and pagodas on this trip and so when we where due to spend time in the Shwedagon Pagoda, Yangon, we did not think it was going to be anything unusual. However when sunset came and there was a parade with traditional music, to welcome the full moon, it was amazing and a wonderful experience.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Our group leader Zaw Zaw was fantastic, he was able to guide us through the two weeks, making the whole adventure feel really well organised. His team were great and they did everything they could to help us feel comfortable and to ease the way. For example they would fill the water bottles and take your bike when your reached the end of a tough stretch.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Beer drinkers avoid the Mandalay Gold

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    This was an excellent holiday which was enhanced by the guide's efficiency, the teams helpful support and the group we travelled with, who were such good fun.

    BURMA BY BIKE

    This is a great trip, providing an excellent overview of Burma. The guide is very knowledgeable and overall it was a very enjoyable experience. On some days I would have liked more cycling but overall it was good and I loved Burma!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Cycling around Bagan, seeing the 26 sq.km of temples! also seeing Aung San Suu Kyi's house..

    What did you think of your group leader?

    The group leader is great! Myo is extremely knowledgeable and provides a lot of insight into life in Burma, the political situation, the traditions and Buddhism.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The main objective os this trip is to see Burma and get an insight inbto the country, the landscape, the people and the various places of interest. The cycling is good but this is not a tough cycling trip, more of an easy one. on some days I would have liked more cycling but overall it was good.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Burma is changing fast! you want to get there now!
