Myanmar Plane Tickets

Hi!

I'm going to Myanmar in May 12th for 11 days and was checking out plane tickets online from Yangon to Bagan. To be honest I was expecting them to be cheaper, they go around $250 return ticket.

If you buy them locally are they much cheaper?

Thanks,
Joana

Where to stay in Myanmar

My father and I have been trying to decide where to go on holiday over the summer, and we decided that Myanmar is a possibility. However, one thing that troubled us is that we cannot find a place to stay. We'd probably be flying into Yangon but the trouble is that we want to see both the culture, pagodas, people etc. but also stay near a beach in a more secluded area. Any ideas on where to stay, and if so what hotels in that city do you recommend?

Myanmar Safety

Hi!

I'm considering a trip to Myanmar in mid May, reading the news it seems there is some conflicts going on in the border with China.

Is this something that is escalating? should I rethink my travel plans?

Thank you!

Route Suggestions

Hi. I will be in Myanmar for 5 days and wanted to check out Bagan and Lake Inle. I would be flying into Yangon and I figured that I can take a bus from Yangon to Bagan. But I haven't figured out the rest of the route yet. I'm flying out from Yangon. I don't plan on spending time in Yangon, its just that the flights from here only goes to Yangon. Should it be Yangon - Bagan - Lake Inle - Yangon? Or any other route?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Overnight layover in Yangon

I just booked a flight that arrives in Yangon around midnight. I am planning to book a flight to Heho that leaves at 7:30am. Can anyone make a recommendation for what to do? It looks like I'll have to leave the airport as everything I find online says they are very strict about people staying in the airport. If that is the case, I welcome any thoughts on the most efficient (cost and time) way to leave the airport and where to stay. I appreciate your help. Thanks!

Internet SIM card

I'll be traveling in Myanmar (Mandalay and surroundings) in July. I'll be taking some courses online and will have my laptop with me. I was there about a year and a half ago and connected easily at a nice coffee shop in the big mall. I also found decent wifi in Monywa at a cafe. But Maymyo had no wifi at the time, and it seemed ages away in Hsipaw. Are there internet cafes or coffee shops with Wifi in Maymyo now ( I imagine Hsipaw would still be ages away). Or maybe my best bet would be to buy a…

How to apply for a restricted area permit OR permission to bring your car into Myanmar

Hi,

There are travellers that have managed to apply for restricted area permits including those needed to cross the Indian and Chinese borders INTO Myanmar from outside of the country. However, my question pertains more to obtaining a travel permit for travelling to marginal areas such as those on the boundaries of the permitted areas in Shan State such as just south of Naungkhio (is that even restricted?) as there are some coffee plantations in that area from what I've read, although most are…
