Have made a last minute decision to travel to Myanmar. I plan to get my Visa at the embassy in Bangkok when I arrive in the next couple of days. I've heard in order to obtain the visa at the embassy, proof of onwards travel is not necessary and I would be given 28 days on my Australian passport.
However, if I fly to Yangon on a one way ticket, would I be refused entry? I'd rather not buy a return ticket as I'm unsure of my itinerary and would like to be flexible. I'm unsure if I'll stay the…
We (Swiss Family) will drive from Thailand (Mae Sot/Myawaddy) to India (Tamu/Moreh) with our own car and are looking for other cars or motorbikes that want to join us in order to get the price down.
Planned start date is Monday October 3, 2016, duration: 5 days. This could also be changed to 6 or 7 days if several people would join us.
We need a travel agent guide and a government officer travelling in a leading vehicle plus all the permits. We've got a proposal for around 1900$ per…
A couple of days ago i was in Muse at the border with China and wanted to cross. I had aranged the border permit with MTT in Yangon; this was no problem.
However, at the border i was told that it is currently closed. It was not possible for foreigners to leave Myanmar this way. There was also a Chinese national there, who was told the same. I know a couple of days before a French couple had no problem (you are lucky bastards Y&S!). The local agent of MTT was very helpful, but she could not do…
Dear Myanmar travel experts,
Is the following itinerary realistic when travelling with public transport?

day 4: travel by bus or train (recommendation?) from Yangon to Hpa'An - sleep in Hpa'An

I will be on a bike tour heading through the Mae Sot border up through Myanmar in early 2017. I thought it would be a nice day trip to cycle from Kyaiktiyo town to the Golden Rock and back. Does anyone know if this is permitted, and if so, what kind of gradients there are up to the Rock?
We think it might be very helpful to give the following very recent info about Myanmar : Our initial plan was to travel overland from Nepal toIndia, then to Myanmar, then to Thailand. It did not work out.
Most importantly, Exotic Myanmar Travels informed us that Myanmar authorities did not deliver any border permit for the time being, from 18th May till at least the end of the month. Reason invoked is rethinking of the border permit procedures. They told us (to be…
Hi fellow travellers!
I am going to Myanmar next winter, and I would like to spend some days at the end of the trip at a beach relaxing. I don't mind flying there, but I'd rather not stay at a posh resort on a beach that is packed with other resorts. Which beach would you guys say is the best, in your opinion? I've seen some articles about this topic, but most of them are a couple of years old, so maybe they're a bit outdated?
Ngapali seems to be beautiful, but some say it is very developed? Are…
I am planning to visit Myanmar for a week later this year, it will be my first time and I will be flying to Yangon from Bangkok. I have had a few problems in finding definitive info. concerning tourist visa on arrival. Can anybody give me the full procedure please.
I am from UK and my girlfriend is from Thailand.
Does anyone have any experience on how strict they are on overweight bags when weighing hold luggage and do they check handheld bag weights (either on Check-in or at the gate) ?
I will be flying with Yadanarpon and Bagan Star.
