I'm going to Myanmar in August, during raining season. I want to know what would be the safest road to get to Inle Lake by bus: either from Bagan or from Mandalay. Also, are floodings usual in Inle Lake during August or not?
Thanks for the info!
I'm seeking suggestions for a hotel/ homestay in Yangon for about a week in the end of October. Are homestays legal?
Does anyone have any suggestions? I see so many place online. From the very expensive to budget; but not much in the middle range. Would prefer in the city center.
Hi, I am arriving 3rd of September with Bangkok Airlines in Mandalay (2pm) and want to proceed to Bagan same day.
Flying would be easiest, but I am not convinced about safety... (any disagreement? is there a "good" airline?)
Train would sound perfect, leaving 21:00, arriving 5:00, 1st class tickets 15$... but I am reading a lot that trains in Myanmar are horror, often many hours late and extremely bumpy, so that you get out with a headache (Other experience anyone on that route?)
Hi guys ! Planning to go to Myanmar in a few days , can anybody help me with these questions?
1) my idea is to enter through Mae Sot in Thailand , but a fellow traveller told me it is only possible to enter in Myanmar by plane....is it true?
2) must i have a plane return ticket to get my visa? My idea was to enter/exit by land....
3) is it possible to move by land freely all over the country? The same traveller as before told me it is not possible to go by land to the border pass in…
My turn to ask a question as I've not quite made it to golden Rock yet. From what I've read its unclear exactly how far you have to walk in bare feet when you get up there, can anyone explain exactly how far you need to walk? I'm asking on behalf of a friend who is adverse to walking barefoot. Cheers.
We are planning to travel from Kawthaung all the way up to Mawlamyine and wondered if anyone has experience of transport and lodgings along the way. Also any recommendations of where to stop along the way would be greatly appreciated. We plan on taking about 10 days to slowly work our way up.
