5 days in Burma/Myanmar

Posted by kanda on 7/1/2014 at 05:56

Hi, I have 5 days in Myanmar. Yes, probably not the right amount of time to spend there, but unfortunately that's the way it is.

I arrive at 5pm on the 18th and leave at 7:30pm on the 23rd. Currently, I have nothing planned in or outside of Yangon.

I am somewhat interested in going somewhere I can moto around, but I don't think I want to trek it all the way to Bagan, at least this holiday.

What can I do in the time I have?

Motor around? Mandalay would be a good choice. We cannot do such an action in Yangon.

With 5 days, you can spend the first day in Yangon, the second and third in Bagan and Mount Popa (climb up to the top) then the rest in Mandalay for motor riding. I notice that we can fly Bangkok from Mandalay, no need to return to Yangon.
