Myanmar Itinirary

I got some advice from someone that spends a lot of time in Myanmar, and this is the itinerary I created from their advice. However I think there will be a couple of problems with it.

24th Jan - Yangon > Arrive in Yangon at 6PM, take overnight Bus to Inle Lake

25th Jan - Inle > Indein boat trip.

26th Jan - Inle > Walk to monastary in caves.

27th Jan - Inle > Bike ride to Taunggyi

28th Jan - Taunggyi/Kalaw > Early morning go to Kalaw, stay overnight.

29th Jan - Kalaw/Bagan > 8am bus to Bagan

30th Jan - Bagan > See temples

31st Jan - Bagan > Overnight bus to Yangon

1st Feb - Yangon > Arrive in Yangon, fly to Malaysia at 6PM

Can you make sure that's all alright? Will that work? Is there anything that you'd change?

Also, how much will all of the bus/transport trips cost? What do we do with the bikes when we arrive in Taunggyi?

i have totally no experience for your trip,

have only experience with ready made flight tour

caz it's look like tailor made special arrangement tour

i have some link for u to check

yangonow.com/eng/…index.html

ananda-travel.com/UK/myanmar_bus_fares_uk.htm

i think u have to go Yangon-Mandalay first , and then

Mandalay-Inle , To Inle Lake boat transfer is required

here is the link to inquiry

I do suggest not to go Kalaw. From Taunggyi , you can go to Bagan by bus. Instead go back to Yangon one day early for your flight home to KL.

Okay thanks. Is there even a bus from Yangon to Inle? When does it leave?

No Direct bus to Yangon to Inle . However , it is easy .

You have to take Yangon- Taunggyi bus and drop at near Taunggyi , call Shwe Nyaung junction .

Then take small bus or car from Shwe Nyaung to Inle Lake ( Nyaung Shwe) .

Buses leave in the evening.

Hi Jake,

Hope it'll help you something.

24th Jan - Yangon > Arrive in Yangon at 6PM, take overnight Bus to Inle Lake

The latest bus already left at about 5:00 pm.

26th Jan - Inle > Walk to monastary in caves.

I think you are talking about the Htataing Cave. It takes about 20 min walk only. Up to Knoehtaw may take the whole day.

27th Jan - Inle > Bike ride to Taunggyi

It seems you are going to rent a bike in Nyaung Shwe. Do not expect that much. It may ride you. You can leave the bike in Taunggyi as far as you want to spend extra money.

Highly recommend to rethink about the first part of the trip.

Sorry for inconvenience.
