A Few Questions About a Katha Pandaw Cruise in Myanmar (Burma)

Jump to last reply

I have already booked on a Katha Pandaw cruise later this year. Recently, I discovered this forum and after much noodling about discovered the trip reports of Dogster and Ekscrunchy. I am now afraid, very afraid. Have I done the right thing? Have I submitted myself to a boat full of Caledonians? As a reasonably sane ( I like to think so) single traveller I would appreciate any advice as to how to survive amongst this sort of company.

On a less important note what is the best footwear for a trip on the Pandaw Katha? Walking Shoes, it appears are looked down on as too time consuming (donning, removing at temples etc., thongs (flip flops) not very good in muddy conditions, any suggestions as to make and model of footwear?

I also notice that the Australian department of Foreign Affairs has just issued a travel warning for the part of Myanmar that's rioting. Should I be worried about this too?
