We were lucky to have met a very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, excellent driver and guide - Mr. Htun Oo. He speaks good English and we could understand him. Communication in English is not a problem with him.

He brought us to the places of interests that do not require entrance fees. These places are similar to those that require an expensive entrance fees. There are no "replacement" to some of the places of interests that need entrance fee. Our driver knows his way around very well - at his fingertips. He is also a well read person who knows the facts and figures, and some history of the different places of interests. He made an effort and time to explain the significance of different pagodas to us. Mr. Htun also brought us to different inexpensive restaurants with good and clean food. The best Myanmar curry that we had tried was in a restaurant in Bagan. The best Mohinga is in Yangon. The best and cheapest Chinese food is in Mandalay.

We would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an English speaking driver and guide to tour around Myanmar. He's also very well travelled within Myanmar.
