Hello. Im planning a trip to Myanmar around the 23rd of December. This is my first visit to this country, so any advise would be appreciated. My plan is to fly to mandalay from Bangkok for a 7-8 night stay, from there im clueless... although bagan looks amazing. I enjoy sightseeing.. a good cold beer and sharing stories with any other polite travellers. Thankyou

Nyaung Shwe was my favorite destination because of Inle Lake. I'll also suggest Chaung Tha beach if you like beaches and Kalaw if you like trekking.

How long in total in Burma - do you mean 7-8 days in Mandalay or 7-8 days in Burma in total.

Cheers

Go to Bagan...take the slow boat from Mandalay along the Irrawaddy, it takes about 12 hours, and you will see some amazing sights along the way. And then, Bagan is just... well, Bagan.
