Words cannot truly express how special this trip was - one of my best ever.
Linda S. and Vee H. traveled to Burma (Myanmar) for 18 days in February 2016, organized by Jack
Our recent trip to Myanmar this March was truly a memorable one and exceeded our expectations. Words cannot truly express how special this trip was. One of my best ever. We were fortunate to be invited into the homes of local families and learn intimately about their lives and culture. So many wonderful memories, images, and adventures made us fall in love w/the people, culture, and country. Our guides, personable, and knowledgeable, were an important asset to our amazing trip
I'll never forget when…
Bako National Park covers 2,742 hectares of a rugged sand stone peninsula to the east of the Bako River near Kuching, the capital of Sarawak. Millions of years of erosion have created an impressive and breathtaking coastline of steep cliffs, rocky headlands and stretches of white, sandy bays. Wave erosion at the base of the cliffs has carved many of the rocks into fantastically shaped sea arches and seastacks.
The coastline is also dotted by a sandstone cliff vegetation characteristic of Bako. Other major vegetation types include the mangrove forest, mixed dipterocarp forest, peat swamp forest, kerangas (heath) forest, and kerangas scrub on the plateau; it's possible to see just about every type of vegetation found on Borneo at Bako National Park.
Well worth a visit even to experience the novel way to enter the park- from the sea.
