I would also like to make special mention of Thida Win - she is an absolutely wonderful guide - very kind, patient, knowledgeable and a consummate professional in undertaking her job. She made sure that everything happened seamlessly without any hitches whatsoever - she is a great advert for A&K and for Myanmar.
Rupar Mandalar is a romantic hotel, set within 1.8 hectares of natural vegetation. Modern facilities combine with traditional materials, natural wooden decor and touches of bright colour and exotic flowers throughout the 16 guest rooms and public spaces. An outdoor swimming pool, tennis court and health and beauty spa provide all you need for activity or relaxation. Three restaurants and two bars serve a variety of Thai, Chinese and European cuisine and local seafood delicacies in beautiful casual or more formal settings.
Best time to be thereMyanmar (Burma) has three clear seasons: from March to May are the very hot summer months, the wet and humid monsoon runs from May to October and the cold dry winter lasts from November to February. The best time of year to visit is late November early December when the rains have gone, the landscape is lush and green and the skies are crystal clear. However any time from late November to March is a good time to travel.
