Concerns about Myanmar

We're not due to go to Myanmar until November but I'm wondering if anyone on the October departure has concerns about the situation there?

We were thinking about cancelling, but there was an itinerary change that meant we could transfer without penalty to another trip. We moved to cycling indochine and Angkor Wat. Like you, we were worried about the humanitarian issues and ethnic cleansing.  I had a sense the Exodus were sympathetic to the transfer. Maybe explore that rather than cancel.

So we listened to Aung Sang Suu Kyi's speech last week and really felt that the situation wans't loikely to improve and we weren't happy travelling to country where both the UN and Amnesty International agreed an ethnic cleansing was taking place. Three days before our balance on Myanmar was due Exodus were more than helpful in allowing us to change our destination entirely - to Vietnam - exactly the same dates and somewhat cheaper overal as it happens. No penalties incurred - which amazed me.  The company couldn't have been more helpful, understanding and accomodating.
