    You're unlikely get the cheapest fare but you should get something even if it's via Bangkok. Remember that you'll only get 28 days on your visa so will be limited by that (although apparently overstays by a day or two aren't too much of an issue); travel is slow and you may need longer than originally anticipated, and also internet access can be patchy and slow which can be frustrating when trying to do things like make bookings and payments on line - although in Yangon it's normally OK.

    You could always leave your Yangon sightseeing until the end of the trip that way you'll have some things to do if you have to wait for a couple of days ........
