Visa?

Hello guys,

Just a quick one, in the early stages of planning my 6 month career break and looking at visa.

As a uk citizen do I need to apply online before I arrive?

Thanks in advance.

You may guess that I mean flights by the topic, just wanted to attract your attention ;-)
I am confused browsing Internet and I would like to ask you for clear information regarding internal flights.

I will have one week to visit Yangon, Bagon and Inle Lake. My international flight is to and from Yangon. I would like to take flights on the way:
-Yangon - Bagon
- somewhere close to Inle Lake - Yangon

Should I book flights before going there?
If yes, which online website is reliable and I can find…

Hello there:

I am planning a 2 weeks trip to Myanmar in late Oct/ early Nov. I roughly drafted my plan and it looks like I am trying to pack too many places into such a short time. Yet it is hard to cross out any of them :( So I want to ask people here how realistic my plan is. If I need to cross out one of the cities, I am currently debating between Mrauk-U and Pyay.

Day 1 - arrive in Yangon. Take night bus to Mandalay.
Day 2 - arrive in Mandalay.
Day 3 - Mandalay
Day 4 - Mandalay. Take night…

Hi fellows! In november my husband and I are going to visit southeast asia for first time.
We wanted to visit burma 7 or 10 days, but is very difficult to add it in our itinerary .

What do you think of going from Chiang Mai (Thailand) to Mandalay? I know there is a flight but is really expensive. It is possible to go by land? And then go down and come back to thailand from the south, It is possible? Someone did it this way?

Thank you in advance!
Nenu.

Are there AMTs in Yangon or should I carry USD or similar?

Hi,

We are planning our Myanmar trip but are running into problems because of vastly conflicting information being given to us concerning driving times. We will be using a private car and driver for the following. What are realistic driving times (not just Google times)given usual road conditions and traffic during November. In all cases we plan on an early morning start and no night driving.

  1. Loikaw to Yangon.

  2. Loikaw to Taungoo

  3. Taungoo to Yangon

Thanks for your…

Hi,
Im planning a trip to myanmar and am curious: Is it best to book the flights ahead of time or do it when you land in Yangon? I know in america that would mean super high airfares and sold out flights but for a trip in August would that be the best bet? Also it sounds like doing it through a travel agent is best?

And in August does anyone have an idea if planes and trains/buses are delayed due to rain or pretty much on time?

Thanks!

Hello, I am planning to overstay my visa by a few days and will need to pay the penalty in Yangon International Airport before I leave - does anyone know the hours for visa overstay processing? Is it open 24 hours? My flight is at 1am and I am hoping I can get it processed at that time.

Thanks!

How accessible is Mayu peninsular from Sittwe?

In WW2 my grandad was killed at Indin on Mayu and my family would like to visit where he was killed.

In 2003, my Dad and I did a pilgrimage trip from Sittwe, up Mayu river and across to Maungdaw. Only locals, Burmese military and UNHCR were in the area.The road was too poor to get to Indin.

This time we want to hire a boat in Sittwe to make landfall from Bay of Bengal on Mayu at Indin. Less desirable alternatives are either boat to Fouls Point…
