I'm still planning our trip in May 2013 and am gtting some quotes with a few agents. Most agents seem to recommend to pre-book side trips through them (e.g. Mingun, Sagine Hill and U Bein Bridge from Manadalay, and Mt Popa from Bagan etc).
However, from what I've been reading, these are easy enough to organise once you're there (e.g. through hotels etc). And besides, that way you can do what suits you depending on how you're feeling and the weather etc....
My query is which method would be cheaper?
Any other tips or info about organising sight seeing in Bagan/Manadalay much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
