Htay met us on time at our hotel. We were to travel about 2-1/2 hours north of Yangon to visit an elephant park. When we arrived part way we were told that the car could go no further and we were surprised that we would be transported on the back of motorcycles the last 8-1/2 miles on ungraded trails. Fortunately my wife and I are in good physical shape and were able to complete the trip to the park only to find out the park was closed. Htay is a nice man but really needs to do better.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your feedback.Unfortunately,in the current time, Myaing Hay Won elephant camp is not a tour site due to a bad road and however, my clients could see elephants and do the things they wanted.The elephant camp wasn't closed.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Comments were brought up to the guide and his guide support manager who are working on ways of setting the proper expectation on his tours when the subject is means of transportation and intensity of the tour. We also asked the guide to check the park schedule beforehand to avoid situations like the one mentioned above.
