Traveling in April

Hey fellow travellers

My friend and I are traveling Mandalay - Bagan - Inle - Yangoon and from here to Mawlamyine from april 1 april. We will be in Myanmar for about two weeks. Due to the upcoming Thingyan, we are in doubt as to whether or not to book all busses and hotels in advance. We are used to just going with flow, but Myanmar seems a bit more "challenging" than say Vietnam or Thailand.

We are looking at myanmarbusticket.com and from April 10 to April 23 we can not even search for…

About Thingyan transportation

Hi all!

I'm travelling to Myanmar between 2nd and 18th April this year. I'm really excited and I think Myanmar is one of the best countries to visit right now! :)

On to my concern:
I arrive at Yangon on the 2nd April and I'm planning to take a night bus to Bagan on the same/next day. Then I'll on Bagan / Lake / Mandalay until 15th April when I want to go to Yangon until 18th.

Visit to elephant logging camp and teck furniture workshop

I will be arriving in and departing from Mandalay, staying in "central" Myanmar for about three weeks starting mid-November 2015 (no Rangoon or coastal trip). Except Taungoo for which I have read mixed reviews, where could I visit elephant logging operation as well as shop manufacturing wood products? Idealy not to far from the key places to visit (Inle, Bagan, Hsipaw, etc.).

While I am there, any "not to miss" suggestion not mentioned in LP guide?

Overland from Thailand to Myanmar - Phu Nam Ron to Htee Khee

We set off from Kanchanaburi by bus to  the border. About three hours. Ten km from the border we were the only ones left on the bus, so they bundled us into the back of a pickup for the rest of the way. At Phu Nam Ron we were met by a helpful Dutch man who had taken it upon himself to organise all the minivan drivers and make sure everyone was quoted the same price. They prefer payment in baht, which we didn't have any left of, but we managed to pay in dollars for the trip to Dawei. 25 $ each…

off the beaten path

Hi,
I've been in Myanmar twice so far. I've seen all major tourist attractions and I’ve also visited places such as Taunggyi, Bago, Mawlamyine, Hpa-an, Chaung Tha beach and places from Pyin Oo Lwin up to Lasihio. This time I’ll be there from 6th to 27th April, so also during Thingyan. I know that it can be a bit difficult to travel during Thingyan, but I like the celebration. What I like the most are the people. I like talking and spending time with locals, especially in small villages where…
