Interesting and exciting itinerary or so I thought. First full day in Yangon scenic free choice all customers were on one trip (no antiques market or arts or crafts tours) only trip to village not to my taste going round market which was smelly with flies crawling over meat and fish.ferry crossing alright. Hotel in Yangon was very good. Full day to ship .packed lunch inedible. Ship staff were very pleasant.food was very good.cabin outside window were dirty and were never cleaned . Mini bar requested vodka and brandy had none refilled used gin bottles.no suitable Area for onboard entertainment although everybody did their best( dinning room and pool which had no space). As the boat was not full had ten travel agents on board who tended to take over areas where pool where there is not much room. Do not mind some non paying Guests but not that number . Trips. Too much triggering my social conscience first village abject poverty and people Taking pictures of their poverty made me extremely uncomfortable.next village walking through mud and more poverty. Too many visits to fruit and meat markets four. Some excellent trips Mou t pops spectacular, teak bridge from small boats and champagneWonderfull. Temples and stupas worth seeing This trip should have been atrip of a lifetime but some the trips fell flat and the boat missing

Failing to live up to Scenic's high standards
