    Looking forward to my visit to Myanmar and already made a global itinerary which look like this:

    Air Asia flight Bangkok-Mandalay december 12th, Mandalay (12-13)
    Bagan (14-17) if possible transport by boat Mandalay-Nyaung U
    Kalaw (18-20) transport by flight Nyaung U-Heho
    Inle Lake (21-24)
    Mandalay (25)
    Pyin Oo Lwin (26-27)
    Kyaukme (28-30) transport Pyin Oo Lwin-Kyaukme by train (Gokteik viaduct)
    Hsipaw (dec. 31 - jan. 1-2)
    Mandalay (3-4)
    Yangon (5-6) transport Mandalay-Yangon by flight, Air Asia flight Yangon-Bangkok (jan 7th)

    Some questions about this:
    *Would it be good to do the leg Mandalay-Hsipaw v/v from/during (our) X-mas/New Year period? Will this period influence travelling, markets etc.? Or better do this leg earlier during my trip?
    * Same about Bagan/Inle Lake, would it be good to do this leg before X-mas/New Year period?
    * I know this is high season, would it be necessary to arrange transport/accomodation far in advance (my idea is to wait till I am in Mayanmar)? In which/all parts of my trip?
    * Other advice on my itinerary (I have no fixed itinerary and some flexible dates in Mandalay)?
    Thanks answering,
