Burma - The Golden Land (Myanmar)

Introduction

This document contains essential information that you need to prepare for, as well as information you will need during your holiday with Peregrine.

We ask that you read it carefully and that you take the document with you on your holiday. It contains information on visas, vaccinations, spending money, etc, as well as a detailed, day by day itinerary of your trip.


Your Trip

What's Included

Transport

Not Included

Optional Extras

We have chosen a selection of some great optional activities to enhance your travel experience. You will need to cover any additional costs yourself. The below list is not exhaustive and should be used as a guide only. Prices are approximate and are for entrance only and don’t include transport to and from the sites or local guides unless indicated. All activities are subject to availability and it may not be possible to do all the activities listed in the time available at each destination.
Where activities are considered medium or high risk, we work with operators whose safety and credentials we have sighted and assessed. This means that it is possible that you may find the same activity cheaper with another operator on the ground, however we cannot vouch for the safety or quality of that operator. Activities not listed below have not been assessed by us and as such our staff and leaders are unable to assist you with booking these activities. The decision to partake in any activity not listed is at your own discretion and risk.


Preparing to Travel

Safety

It is recommended that you check your government's advice for their latest travel information prior to your departure.Peregrine strongly recommends the use of a neck wallet or money belt while travelling, for the safe-keeping of your passport, air tickets, cash and other valuable items. Please leave your valuable jewellery at home - you won't need it while travelling. Most of our hotels will have a safety deposit box, which is the most secure way of storing your valuables. A lock is recommended for securing your luggage.

Your leader will accompany you on all included activities, however during your trip you'll have some free time to pursue your own interests, relax and take it easy or explore at your leisure. While your group leader will assist you with the available options in a given location, please note that any optional activities you undertake are not part of your itinerary, and Peregrine makes no representations about the safety of the activity or the standard of the operators running them. Please use your own good judgement when selecting an activity in your free time. Please also note that your group leader has the authority to amend or cancel any part of the trip itinerary if it's deemed necessary due to safety concerns.

FIRE PRECAUTIONS: Please be aware that local laws governing tourism facilities in this region differ from those in your home country and not all the accommodation which we use has a fire exit, fire extinguishers or smoke alarms.

TRAFFIC AND DRIVING CONDITIONS: Depending on where you come from please note that drivers in this part of the world may drive on the opposite side of the road from what you are used to. Look both ways before crossing any road. Be aware that traffic can be a little more chaotic than you might be used to at home.

PETTY THEFT AND PERSONAL SAFETY: While travelling there is always the risk of pick-pocketing and petty theft, particularly in the more touristy cities. We recommend that you exercise caution when walking alone at night and encourage you to walk together and only on main, well-lit thoroughfares. Be particularly vigilant on public transport. Simple measures like carrying your day pack on your front, not hanging your bag over the back of your chair and wearing a money belt will reduce any chance that your valuables should go missing.

SWIMMING POOLS: You may stay at hotels with unfenced pools and no life guard on duty.

BALCONIES: Some hotel balconies don't meet western standards in terms of the width of the balcony fence being narrower than 10cm.

SEAT BELTS: Please be aware that local laws governing transportation safety may differ from those in the western world or from your home country and not all the transport which we use provides seat belts.

Visas and Permits

Burma

Please note that visa requirements can and do change. It is essential that you confirm requirements with the nearest relevant embassy or check with your travel agent before you travel. At the time of writing, a visa is required by most travellers visiting Burma (Myanmar) including Australians, New Zealanders, Americans, Germans, Irish, British and Canadians. All other nationalities should check the Burma Embassy or Consulate in their country for up-to- date visa information/>

Effective as of 01 September 2014, some nationalities including Australians, Canadians, Germans, Dutch, New Zealanders, British and Americas can obtain a tourist visa using a new eVisa system. For information on obtaining an eVisa visit website www.myanmarevisa.gov.mm.

*Important to note when applying for an eVisa: - Passport validity must have at least (6) months validity from date of return. - You will need to present one colour photo (4cm X 6cm) which has been taken within the last 3 months and a copy of your return ticket. - Length of stay is 28 days from the date of arrival in Myanmar. - The eVisa fee is US$50 per person, payable by credit card (note: visa fee is non-refundable should the eVisa be denied) - The processing time is approximately 5 working days for granting an eVisa however we recommend allowing longer in the event of delays. - The validity of an eVisa letter is 3 months from the date of issue. You will be denied entry if you attempt to enter on an expired eVisa. - eVisas are applicable for single entry into Burma only and you will not be permitted to re-enter on an eVisa that you have previously entered on (multiple entries not possible) - eVisas are only obtainable if you are arriving into Yangon International Airport. If arriving into another Burma entry point you will need to pre-obtain your visa before departure via a Burmese Embassy. - Despite having been issued an eVisa Immigration personnel will check the Interpol black list and Myanmar black list and you may be denied entry.

This information was correct as of 21 August 2014 – please check the above website for further information as this new system is further developed.

Nationalities who are unable to obtain an eVisa should contact the Burma embassy in their country of residency.

Note - you may be requested to provide a letter of invitation from a local Burmese ground operator. In such cases please contact Peregrine/Gecko’s to attain this letter and we will forward to you.

Visas on arrival in Burma are currently unavailable - you should obtain your visa prior to departure.

BURMA SAILING: If you are travelling on our Burma Sailing trip ex Thailand (GTYH), your visa will be issued as a group visa on arrival at the border crossing between Thailand/Myanmar.

Please bring:

- 2 photocopies of the front page of your passport - 2 passport photos - Crisp USD for fees

The cost of a 30 day Tourist Visa on this sailing trip is US$30 and all travellers must pay an additional US$20/day Mergui Archipelago park fee. Please allow approximately US$200 (which should cover any unforeseen increases).

Government travel advice

Many governments publish up-to-date travel advice for countries around the world. Information is gleaned from both local and international sources as well as ‘friendly’ governments, and the notices are often on the cautious side. Sometimes there will be conflicting information. For example, the Australian, UK and Canadian governments may agree on the nature of the advice; however, frequently they do not. And sometimes the views expressed by a particular government can be coloured by political considerations. We will monitor these travel advisories closely and may alter itineraries or cancel trips as a result. However, it is also your responsibility to stay informed and form a balanced view. We recommend that you visit the websites or contact the departments listed below. Unless otherwise stated, it is not normally the intention of the relevant government travel advice to dissuade you from travelling. Rather, it is to inform you of where and when you should exercise caution to avoid problems. Please also note that, as a responsible tour operator, we maintain constant links with our ground operators and your safety - at all times - is our paramount concern. You can check your government's latest travel advice at one of the links below:

Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade 

UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office

Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade

U.S. Department of State

New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade

Passport

Please ensure that you have a current passport well before travelling. It also needs an accurate photo and should be valid for at least six months after you are scheduled to return home. Also check that your airline tickets are in exactly the same name as your passport.

Insurance

Every Peregrine traveller is required to have comprehensive travel insurance. This covers you for medical costs associated with hospitalisation, emergency travel and repatriation back to your home country. You can arrange your own insurance or we can recommend a policy for you. Remember to bring a copy of your insurance policy with you so your tour leader can record the details at the pre-tour briefing. If you arrive at your destination without travel insurance, you'll need to organise this before you can continue on your Peregrine journey.

Medical preparation

Apart from having travel insurance and being in generally good health, some pre-holiday health preparation is advised. We strongly recommend you visit your doctor to discuss health requirements for your trip. They will advise you regarding the appropriate inoculations and in some places anti-malarial medication may also be required. Some vaccines need to be administered a few weeks before departure so allow plenty of time. Obtain a certificate of vaccination and carry this with you on this trip. A dental checkup is also highly recommended before departure.

Vaccinations

Vaccinations may be required or recommended for this trip so you should consult with your travel doctor to obtain the latest up-to-date information. It is your responsibility to ensure that you obtain any vaccinations or preventative medicines for the countries you are visiting – or any which may be required by your home country upon your return.

For travellers from Australia and New Zealand, we recommend the Travel Doctor-TMVC clinics (see www.traveldoctor.com.au or phone 1300 658 844 for an appointment in Australia). Travellers from countries other than Australia and New Zealand should contact similar organisations or their travel doctor for advice. General health and vaccination information is available to all travellers at
www.traveldoctor.com.au/travelreport. Some vaccines require more than one dose, so arrange for your visit at least 4-6 weeks before you travel.

Malaria: There is no vaccination against malaria, which is transmitted by mosquito bites and is a risk in many less-developed tropical areas in Africa, Latin America and South East Asia. Protection against mosquito bites is essential and where the risk is considered high, anti-malarial medications are recommended. Anti-malarial medications should be discussed with experts as there are different medications available and not all medications suit all people or all destinations. Where malaria is considered prevalent in mountainous regions we prefer that trekkers to altitude try to avoid the use of mefloquine (Lariam) if possible.

Copies of key documents

We recommend that you photocopy the main pages of your passport, your airline ticket, itinerary, insurance policy and credit cards. Keep one set of photocopies with you, separate from the originals. Leave one set of copies at home with family or friends. It is also worth taking some extra passport photos with you.

What to take

General Packing List

Remember - the lighter you travel the better! You may be buying things as you go, so you should not bring too much from home. Many people find a backpack the most suitable type of luggage for our holidays. Medium-sized suitcases can also be used; however, you should avoid the large, bulky cases that are difficult to carry. The lockable suitcases on wheels are the best types to use. Be aware that some hotels in Burma are not over-endowed with lifts (elevators) and there will be occasions when you need to carry your luggage up stairs or over rough roads and paths.

When packing, consider cultural differences which may mean that some attire that we wear at home is not appropriate in Asia and may be offensive to the local people. Beachwear in towns is not appropriate, nor is 'short' shorts, particularly for women. Light cotton pants are a better option. When visiting sites of religious significance, modest clothing should be worn. Shorts which only come down to the knees are often not acceptable for both men and women, and nor are singlets or bare shoulders. Sandals, thongs, flip-flops or jandals are appropriate footwear in the tropics.

When you pack your clothing, consider the climate at the time of year you are travelling and any specific requirements for your trip as at certain times of the year some of the items suggested in the list that follow may not be necessary. Bear in mind that the weather will vary significantly from place to place. The majority of time the weather is warm in South East Asia; however, it may be distinctly cold up in the highlands. If there are specific requirements for a trip, these will be noted in the separate country section, or in the Trip Notes relating to that trip. Please note that in the last few years, the world’s weather pattern has gone somewhat awry. The effects of ‘El Nino’ and ‘La Nina’ are very real and this has resulted in unseasonable droughts followed by unseasonable deluges. Be prepared for the unexpected! Laundry facilities are available at most of our hotels.

Below is a list of equipment and documentation that we suggest you take with you. Please use this checklist as a guide when packing for your holiday.

Travel documents: passport, visa (if required), travel insurance, international air tickets or e-ticket receipts (domestic air tickets will be provided and held by your tour leader), Trip Notes
Photocopy of main passport pages, visa, travel insurance and air tickets (It’s wise to scan these and email them to yourself)
Spare passport photos
Money: US dollars cash (must be in very good condition)
Money belt
Small padlocks
Small first-aid kit
Daypack for use on day or overnight excursions
Watch/alarm clock and torch/flashlight (and spare batteries)
Electrical adapter plug
Toiletries/roll of toilet paper/travel wipes
Insect repellent
Sunscreen, lip balm, sunhat and sunglasses
Earplugs and eye mask (for light sleepers)
Extra pair of prescription glasses (if required)
2 strong plastic garbage bags (for laundry and in case of rain)
Refillable water bottle
Phrase book
Warm clothes - when travelling in cooler climates
Wind and waterproof jacket
Comfortable and sturdy walking shoes with good walking socks
Camera and spare batteries(and charger)

A sleeping bag is not required on this trip.
 


Money Matters

Currency

Burma

The unit of currency is the kyat (pronounced 'chat'). One kyat is divided into 100 pyas, which are coins and not used any longer as the kyat has devalued quite significantly in recent times. The following kyat notes are used: 100, 200, 500, 1000 and 5000. Smaller notes may be encountered, but are now generally worthless.

Exchange rates

Refer to www.xe.com for current exchange rates.

Accessing Money

Burma

The US dollar is now widely used in Burma and it is suggested that you carry US cash in various denominations for use as spending money. Some other major currencies can be  exchanged however the USD is most reliable. Very important - do not bring in any US dollar bank notes that are in any way torn, nicked, stained, significantly creased or even folded, as these will not be accepted. The notes should be crisp and perfect with no folds or marks and should be no older than 2006. The best place to change your money is upon arrival at the airport, as the exchange rate is now locked to the US dollar. It is also possible to change money readily at your joining hotel. Bring some high denomination bank notes because you get a higher rate of exchange when changing into local currency. The best exchange rates are in Rangoon, so it's best to exchange most of your money there.

If you need to change more money your tour leader will be able to help you to do this at the many places available, but please note that it is more difficult to change money outside of Yangon and Mandalay. ATM machines are now available in Yangon and to a lesser extent Mandalay and other cities. We however advise that you bring plenty of cash for your trip as the reliability of the ATM’s are still unknown, due to power cuts and the newness of the service. It is still not possible to use traveller’s cheques at this time. Hotels will generally exchange money during office hours only.

Carrying cash is relatively safe as long as you take the usual precautions. It's best to try and budget a daily rate and do all your money exchange on the day you arrive in Yangon. If you have any kyat left over at the end of your trip you can change it back into US$ at a hotel, or at the airport when departing.

Personal Expenses

South East Asia

You will need to take money with you to cover any additional meals/drinks not included in your tour cost. Other costs to consider are drinking water, tips, laundry, souvenirs, additional sightseeing and possible delays. It is much better to come with more than you would expect to spend and to end the trip with a surplus, rather than being caught short! It is always useful to carry an additional amount for emergencies that could happen en route. If there is a medical emergency you are sometimes required to pay at the source and be reimbursed later by your insurance company. As a guideline we suggest that you allow US$20 per day in Asia would allow you to eat and drink reasonably well.

 

Optional Tours & Activities: We include many sightseeing activities on most of our trips; however, there are additional optional tours and activities that you may wish to undertake during your free time. These may incur additional expenses. These activities are not a mandatory part of our tours because, from past experience, we have found that our travellers have appreciated some free time whilst on tour.

Spending Money

Until the start of 2013 the situation was that no credit cards and traveller's cheques were accepted for payment or for the purchase of any goods and services in Burma, and there were also no ATMs (automatic teller machines) in the country.


The situation is now changing. ATM's are starting to make an appearance in some parts of the country, especially in the larger cities, and some major credit cards are starting to be accepted in some locations, such as larger stores and hotels. However, the process is far from complete and we strongly suggest that you continue to bring some US dollar notes in good condition, whilst knowing that it might be possible to use ATM's and credit cards occasionally.

Airport Taxes

Burma

Departure taxes for international and domestic flights are now generally included in your ticket price.

Tipping

The below 'Tipping' information applies to 2014 departures. In 2015, the cost of tipping is included in your tour price (except for tour leaders where the below information applies).

If you're happy with the services provided a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it's of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many of our destinations. Although can be difficult to source we advise you to carry small notes of local currency each day to make tipping easier.
 
The following amounts are per person suggestions based on local considerations and feedback from our past travellers: Restaurants: Local markets and basic restaurants - round your bill up to the nearest US$1. More up-market restaurants we suggest 10% to 15% of your bill.
 
Local guides: Throughout your trip you may at times have a local guide in addition to your tour leader. We suggest US$2-US$3 per day for local guides.
 
Drivers: You may have a range of drivers on your trip. Some may be with you for a short journey while others may be with you for several days. We would suggest a higher tip for those more involved with the group, however we suggest US$1-US$2 per day for drivers.
Your Tour Leader: You may also consider tipping your tour leader for outstanding service throughout your trip. The amount is entirely a personal preference, however as a guideline US$2-US$4 per person, per day can be used. Of course you are free to tip more or less as you see fit, depending on your perception of service quality and the length of your trip. Remember, a tip is not compulsory and should only be given when you receive excellent service.
 
In total, we recommend you budget approx US$5-US$10 per day of your trip to cover tipping. At your group meeting on Day 1 your tour leader will discuss with you the idea of running a group tipping kitty, whereby everybody contributes an equal amount and then your tour leader pays the tips while keeping a running record of all monies spent (except restaurant tips). The record can be checked at any time and any money remaining at the end of the tour returned to group members. This is often the easiest way to avoid the hassles of needing small change and knowing when and what is an appropriate amount to tip.
 
Please don't tip with coins, very small denomination notes, or dirty and ripped notes. This is regarded culturally as an insult.


While you are travelling

On arrival

On arrival in Rangoon (Yangon), you will be met by a representative and transferred to your start hotel. Please see your final documents for full details of the hotel. Please make sure we are aware of your flight arrival details before you travel.

If you are making your own way from the airport to the hotel, it is a simple matter of catching a taxi. After clearing customs and immigration at Mingaladon Airport, you should make your way outside the terminal where there will be many taxi-drivers touting their services. It should cost approximately US$6 to get to the hotel, which is close to the city centre. You should arrive by Day 1 of the itinerary. There will be a group meeting at 6.00 pm that evening unless you are notified of another time in a message left by your tour leader at the hotel reception desk. This briefing is usually followed by an optional group dinner at a local restaurant. Please bring your passport and travel insurance documents to the briefing.

Hotel Check In / Check Out

Generally, your room will be available from around midday. Sometimes it may be available mid-morning but this is in no way guaranteed. If your flight is scheduled to arrive in the early morning you may have to wait until a room becomes available. Alternatively you can book one night's 'pre-tour accommodation' which will ensure that your room is ready whenever you arrive. Rooms must generally be vacated by 12 noon unless you have made prior arrangements with the hotel reception. If you want to keep your room for longer you may have to pay an additional charge.

A word on drugs

In most countries even the smallest quantity of an illegal substance is considered a very serious offence and can carry lengthy jail terms. Avoid any contact with illegal drugs. Don’t put yourself and others at risk and never carry bags or luggage for other people. Any person found to be carrying or using illegal drugs will be asked to leave the trip immediately without the right to any refund.


Other Important Information

Fellow Travellers
On this trip you may link up with passengers on other Peregrine tours and you may also be accompanied by like-minded travellers from our sister company Intrepid.

Travelling During the Monsoon
Please note that the months between May and September constitute the monsoonal wet season. Most of our tour will be generally unaffected, but the range of activities available in the beach area down south (Ngwesaung) will be much more limited. During this time we will arrange visits to local villages where you can see how the villagers go about their daily lives.

Burma's Beach Areas
Burma's attraction lies in the fact that it is much less developed that other countries in South East Asia. Please note that this applies particular to the beach areas in the south. Do not expect the standards and level of infrastructure that you get in places like Thailand and Bali. Expect facilities to be much more basic in Burma, therein lies the charm!

Burma Flights
Although all attempts are made to secure air tickets for our groups, due to the way in which airlines in Burma manage their seat allocations, last-minute changes to internal flights are common and our groups may be re-booked on to an earlier or later flight times than originally scheduled. There may also be instances where the group has to be split over different flights throughout the day. In the event that this happens, group members could be unaccompanied on the flight, but will be assisted by additional tour escorts on departure and arrival at both ends. We appreciate your patience with this unavoidable situation.

Local Tour Leaders
By employing and training local guides to lead our group holidays, there is a two-fold benefit. Firstly, we provide employment opportunities for the local community. Just as importantly is the benefit to you, the traveller. Your tour leader’s friendship, humour, passion and intimate knowledge of the region will be key factors in making your holiday a success.

Mobile Phone and Internet Coverage
Until recently there was little or no mobile phone coverage or internet access coverage in Burma, but this is also now changing rapidly. Both are now widely available, most of the time and in most locations.

Hot-air Ballooning in Pagan
Hot air balloon rides can be booked on the morning of day 6 or 7 on this trip.

There is a company which operates hot air ballooning flights in Pagan. Such flights only take place around sunrise for about an hour and are entirely subject to suitable weather conditions, especially low wind conditions and good visibility. In the hotter times of the year, the number of passengers who can be carried within required safety parameters reduces considerably. Peregrine do not organise or book these balloon flights, and we recommend that you book well in advance to travelling, due to the popularity of this activity. The one company running these flights is called 'Balloons over Bagan': http://www.easternsafaris.com/balloonsoverbagan_home.html

As at January 2014 the cost of such flights was about US$320. Such flights are not part of any service offered by Peregrine and any participants will be required to sign indemnity releases provided by the ballooning company.

Breakfasts

The standard of hotel breakfasts provided in Burma often does not meet the expectations of many of our travellers. It is certainly not up to the high standards encountered elsewhere in Asia. The food provided in Burma is often basic and plain. Tourism is still in its infancy and much of the country's tourism industry is still learning how to cater for the needs of foreign tourists. We ask you for your patience and understanding with regard to this.

Burma is a Developing Country
Please note that Burma is a developing country whose infrastructure, values, customs and standards may differ from what you expect in your homeland. Expect poor road conditions and be prepared for some inconveniences such as restaurants and tourist sites being closed from time to time. Sometimes the transportation may be altered or the itinerary may be changed due to circumstances beyond our control. It is also presently experiencing an unprecedented rapid increase in tourism. Burma does not have the infrastructure to deal with this sudden influx and demand for hotels is outstripping supply, therefore resulting in overbooking and hotels not honouring established contracts. As a result some tour groups may be moved from original hotels to other hotels that can accommodate our groups. We will always endeavour to secure alternative hotels of similar standards, but this may sometimes result in our groups having to stay away from the centre of town.

This is an adventure trip and we hope to expose you to all aspects of the local culture. Please be open-minded.

Local Emergency Contact
In the case of a genuine crisis or emergency, please call the Peregrine Burma (Myanmar) emergency contact number: +95 1 420254468.

Itinerary disclaimer:
Occasionally our itineraries are updated during the year to incorporate improvements deriving from past travellers' and local operator feedback. The information given in this itinerary may differ slightly to that in the brochure. It's imperative that you print and review a final copy of your itinerary a couple of days prior to travel, in case there have been changes that affect your plans. For the latest updated itinerary please visit our website: www.peregrineadventures.com Please note that while we operate successful trips in this region throughout the year, some of the changes that may occur in our itineraries could be due to inclement weather and common seasonal changes to timetables and transportation. This can happen with little notice so please be prepared for the chance of possible modifications to the trip en-route.

Emergency funds:
Please make sure that you have access to at least an additional US$500. This money can be drawn upon in unforeseen incidents or circumstances outside our control (eg. a natural disaster, civil unrest, etc) that result in Peregrine necessitating a change to our planned route.

Issues on your trip:
While we always endeavour to provide you the best possible holiday experience, due to the nature of travel and the areas we visit sometimes things can and do go wrong. Should any issue occur while you are on your trip, it is imperative that you discuss this with your group leader/specialist guide or our local representative straight away so that they can do their best to rectify the problem and save any potential negative impact on the rest of your trip. We recognize that there may be times when your group leader/local partner may not be able to resolve a situation to your satisfaction - if this is the case, please ask the leader/guide to speak to their direct manager.

Responsible Travel:
Every place Peregrine visits is special – and we want it to stay that way. Our Responsible Travel ethos is at the heart of everything we do, from respecting local cultures and the environment, to initiating projects that make positive contributions to local communities. On all our tours we strive to work in a socially and environmentally responsible way. Contributing to local environmental and cultural conservation, we are not only helping the community but giving our travellers a more authentic experience, whether it's enjoying a homestay in a tribal village or sleeping in small, family-run accommodation.
