11 Day Itinerary

Posted by PaulJB on 12/9/2012 at 15:31

Hi Guys,

Any advice would be great!, my itinerary is different than other ones I have seen as I want to fly into Yangon and out of Mandalay(meaning that I dont do the usual route Yangon-Bago-Mandalay-Isle-Yangon).

I am looking to go, Yangon-Bagan-Inle-Mandalay.

Queries I have already are,

1) the flight between Bagan and Inle is with Bagan Air, are they reliable and have people heard of this flight before?
2) Does the time breakup for the locations look right?
3) I am leaving Myanmar on the 13th of April which is the starting day of the water festival. Is this going to be a problem, also should I push the whole trip back 2 days to experience 2 days of the festival in Mandalay?

Itinerary -
Day 0. Yangon Night Arrival (6.20pm Air asia)
Day 1. Yangon - Sightseeing
Day 2. Yangon - Sightseeing
Day 3. Yangon-Bagan - Morning flight (6.30-7.30 Myanmar Air) - Sightseeing
Day 4. Bagan- Sightseeing
Day 5. Bagan- Sightseeing
Day 6. Bagan-Heho - Morning flight (8.05-8.45 Bagon Air), Heho-Pindaya-Inle by car
Day 7. Inle Lake - Sightseeing
Day 8. Inle Lake-Mandalay - Arvo flight (4.20-4.55 Myanmar Air)
Day 9. Mandalay- Sightseeing
Day 10.Mandalay-Sightseeing
Day 11.Mandalay-Bangkok - Morning flight (10.45-1.00 Air Asia)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

You have nice itinerary, just make sure you have booked with reliable travel agency. Otherwise you need to worry for land transportation because they will be relax during the water festival.

Hi Paul,

Your itinerary is nice. It's the classic tour of Myanmar with the major sites.
I must say I like Bagan and Inle much more than the other 2 cities (Rangoon and Mandalay), so if you are short on time, I would recommend you focus on these 2 but your time split is OK as is.
Happy travelling.
