Taungoo elephant camp 7.or 8.MarchHi elephant enthusiasts,
I am going to Taungoo 6.-9.March, staying at the Myanmar Beauty Guesthouse 4 - Inshallah, you never know, even if you got a confirmation as I learned in this forum - and I want to visit the elephant camp either on 7. or 8. March. Going alone is beyond my budget,LP says it is 90$/person, if there are 2 people going, if the group gets larger it is cheaper. Now maybe also this price might have increased, but the range around 100$ is feasible for me. Has anybody been there lately and has information about the current price? Is it likely to meet other people interested to go there at the guesthouse? I asked Dr. Chan by email and he said there might be groups to go with but he was not sure.
So I would be very happy to find company to go there. So you know whom you might be going with: I am retired architect from Germany, presently working as an unsalaried Senior Expert in Indonesia and always travelling individually, love to experience other cultures and people.

1Hi Goetz, I emailed to inquire for a tour on 7 march. The price is $115 per person (we are a group of 2), but he said it would be cheaper if we get more people. We would love to do it but it does seem terribly expensive... Any others interested in joining?
We are now in Nyaung-U/Bagan and go to Taungoo after a day in Nyapiydaw.

2Hi Woutero, so then it were at least three of us which should bring it " down" to less than 80$ each, which is a lot, true, but I should squeeze that out of my budget, carefully avoiding to crumple the pristine Dollarbills! Maybe we are lucky to meet somebody there who wants to go too. I am looking forward to seeing you there, just bought my busticket in Yangon for 6.3., 9am.
