Myanmar Exotic Tours & Travels - Legit? Hello, I wanted to make a reservation with Exotic. I' ve been hearing about them on The Man In Seat 61 website, so I sent them an email to get a railpass. Had Exotic got the tickets for me, I would have to collect them the next morning in the town from where the trains leave.
But I couldn't, because I wouldn't arrive in town until later in the evening, and the next day the trains left very early. So I e-mailed Exotic asking them to stop the transaction and asked for a reimbursement - I wasn't serious about reclaiming my small amount of US dollars, I just wanted to see what they would say.
So I never had the opportunity to use their service, but I would try if I returned to Myanmar.
