Sample Letter 1

Dear Sally,


I'm thrilled to hear you're planning to visit Yangon for two weeks. We have so much to catch up on, and I can't wait to see you.


You won't need to worry about accommodations during your stay. If you prefer the comfort of a hotel, I'll gladly assist you in booking one. Alternatively, you're more than welcome to stay at my home. Either way, I’ll make sure you have a wonderful base for your adventures here.


Yangon is brimming with activities. We can explore the majestic Shwedagon Pagoda, shop for unique antiques at Bogyoke Market, and dine at the city’s finest local eateries. If you’re in the mood for a little adventure, we could drive to nearby towns for some hiking. There are several scenic spots just a couple of hours away that I’d love to show you.


As for packing, Yangon's weather can be intensely hot and dry, as it hasn't rained here for a couple of months. I recommend bringing lightweight clothing such as Bermuda shorts, a high SPF sunscreen, and comfortable sandals to help keep cool.


I'm counting the days until your arrival!


Love,


Jane

Sample Letter 2


Dear Michael,


I hope this letter finds you well. I’m thrilled to hear that you’re planning to spend a two-week holiday in our region, and I’m more than happy to help you make the most of your stay.


Firstly, I’d be delighted to help you find a place to stay. There are several charming options ranging from cozy bed and breakfasts to modern hotels. If you prefer, I can also look into renting a cottage for you, which would offer more privacy and a homely feel. Just let me know your preference, and I’ll start making inquiries right away.


In terms of activities, our region is rich with attractions that will keep you entertained throughout your holiday. You must visit the beautiful coastal towns with their stunning beaches and vibrant markets. Additionally, I recommend exploring our historic city centre, where you can enjoy a variety of museums, galleries, and historical landmarks. For a bit of adventure, consider hiking in the nearby national parks which offer breathtaking views and well-marked trails.


As for clothing, I suggest bringing a mix of casual and semi-formal wear. The weather can be quite variable, so pack some light layers and a waterproof jacket for those unexpected rain showers. Comfortable walking shoes are a must for all the exploring you’ll be doing, and don’t forget your swimwear if you plan to enjoy the beaches.


Looking forward to seeing you soon and helping you experience the best our region has to offer.


Warm regards,


James

Sample Letter 3


Dear Sally,


What an exciting news! I’m very happy to hear that you will be visiting Yangon for two whole weeks, especially because we haven’t seen each other for so long.


Don’t worry about finding a place to stay while you are here. If you want to stay at a hotel I’ll help you to arrange for it, or you can stay with me at my home. I’d be happy to show you around while you are here. We can go visit the famous Shwedagon pagoda, go shopping for antiques at the Bogyoke market and I can bring you to the best local restaurants in the city. We can also drive to the nearby towns for hiking if you want your trip to be a little more adventurous. I know some good spots that are only a couple of hours away.


While Yangon is very interesting, the weather can be brutally hot. It hadn’t rained at all for the past two months. So, I suggest you to pack lots of Bermuda shorts, sunscreen and super comfortable clothing. Do bring a pair of sandals as well.


I can’t wait to see you!


Love,


Jane
