I have about 3 weeks in Myanmar starting mid-December. I'm an experienced, older traveler but first time in Myanmar. I'd welcome any comments on my proposed itinerary. I'm very interested in both culture and nature and not inclined to hurry from place to place. Enjoy moderate hikes. Mid-range options.
Yangon: 3 nights, then probably fly to Bagan
Bagan area: 4 nights
Kalaw: 2 nights (best way to get to Kalaw?)
Possibly hike (2-day) to Inle Lake area
Inle Lake area: 4 nights
Mandalay: 3 nights
Hello, I plan on riding a motorbike between Yangon and Pyay and im looking for somewhere to sleep along the way. Closer to Yangon than Pyay would be prefferable. Does anyone know if any town along the way have foreigner approved hotels/guesthouses? Family run/cheap is prefferable! Perhaps the towns of Hmawbi, Taik Kyi or Tharrawady have something? thanks for the advice
I have no idea how I did this, but I think I messed up my myanmar e visa name order. The visa form asked for my name as it EXACTLY appears on my passport I put down my first name, middle name, last, but I think my passport (USA) reads last, first, middle.
Do you know if this is a problem? On the information page of my passport the first line is last name, second line is first name, initial.
Spelling is correct.
Should I re-apply? Was accepted within 2 hours
Hi, I'm trying to plan a short trip (14-16 days) covering southern Myanmar. I'd like to visit at least Bago (1 day), Kyaiktiyo (1 day), Moulmein (2-3 days), Hpa An (2-3 days), Ye (1 day), Dawei (2-3 days), but as I would like to include at least 2 or 3 days of good snorkeling, I'm wondering if it worths to go further south (Mergui?) or if there is any good spot near Dawei. I understand that in Mergui Islands there is no accommodation and often permits are required, but maybe is possibile to rent…
Me and my partner are planning (very last minute) our 3 week itinerary for Myanmar arriving into Yangon on 3rd Oct
Currently have Yangon (3 nights) booked but are looking at the below destinations although the route is still work in progress
Bagan (2-3 nights)
Mandalay (2-3 nights)
Hsipaw (1-2 nights)
Kalaw - Inle Lake (is this worth the trek?)
Kyaukame (1-2 nights)
Ngapali (is this worth visiting in October?) (2-3 nights)
Back to Yangon to fly out to Laos
We like trekking, history, nature and…
I was wondering how easy it is to book a one day trek around Kalaw for the next day when you arrive in Kalaw (in February)? We'll be taking the train from Thazi early in the morning and arrive in Kalaw around midday, I think. And we would like to take a day hike around the Kalaw area the next day. We might have time for a 2d/1n trek as well, if we leave for Inle Lake later the next day. But we'd rather not arrive too late in Nyaungshwe, so that we have more time there. We're not…
I have visited Myanmar several times and I plan to go back this winter and visit some favorite places and some I have not visited before. In the east I plan to visit Pathein, Chaungtha/NgweSaung, Ngapali Beach, Sittwe and MraukU. In central Myanmar I hope to visit Pyay, Bagen, and Mandalay (and some smaller places). My problem is how to travel between the coastal cities and also from some coastal city and the central Myanmar cities.
Pathein and Chaungtha/NgweSaung make one easily traveled…
we are looking for a safe driver. Any recommendation :)
We are a young couple coming to Myanmar in January. We have a little babyboy
Our plan is to arrive in Yangon and either go to the sea or directly to mandalay-monywa-bagan-inle-yangon, ( ngwesaung u chaungta) 2-4 days. What are you recommending?
thank you very much
