Anyone been in Myanmar this month ? Wondering if the situation of traveling /booking hotels on the go seems viable for a solo traveler. Also, internet and SIM cards.

Thanks in advance

I just came from Myanmar and I booked everything a couple of days before via the internet. Most populair places were full when we arrived so booking ahead is advisable.

About internet, there was wifi in every guesthouse we stayed at, and although it was slow it worked 99% of the time and so I never got around to being a simcard. If you just need to email and make the odd Skype call there really isn't any need to buy a simcard.

Rains least (if at all, in some places) and is not so hot. Book accommodation and transport well ahead for this busy travel season.
