Last October 23rd, LGTNetwork and Belmond Hotels and River Cruises – our strong supporter and partner, hosted a dinner for a select group of travel agents and tour operators from the United States, in Yangon, Myanmar at very lovely Le Planteur Restaurant & Bar, on the banks of the Inya Lake. This dinner was part of the two 10 days itinerary created by both Mandarin Oriental and Belmond, which included Bangkok, Thailand and several destinations in Myanmar.
Our founder Carlos Melia, was the host of the night, an evening of Good Fellowship and Networking in full luxury, for 17 guests of our professional network. At Le Planteur, we were warmly welcomed by Chef Gil Dumoulin and his charming wife/restaurant host Emmanuelle Cipriani, for a fantastic soiree.
