Best Airline Route/Price To Myanmar from Saigon or Siem Reap

After much help from everyone here we have found a tour agency we will use for a 7night/ 8 day tour of the major attractions in Myanmar.

I like some help with routing to find cheapest flights into Myanmar to begin the Myanmar tour: either from Saigon, Vietnam or Siem Reap, Cambodia.

Details:

We land in Saigon, Vietnam from the United States on the evening of 8/31/2013. From there we like to visit Siem Reap, Cambodia for approximately 3 days and go on to begin our tour of Myanmar. At the end of the tour we would like to fly back to Saigon, Vietnam.

Questions:

What would be best for flight routing and pricing? 1.) Fly from Saigon to Siem Reap (3 days), then Myanmar; then fly to back to Saigon? **I have not been able to find many flights from Siem Reap to Myanmar (just from Pnom Penh) 2.) Fly from Saigon to Myanmar; then fly to Siem Reap (3 days) and from Siem Reap fly to Saigon?

Our travel dates and order of countries we visit are flexible as we land in Saigon on 10/31/2013 and fly back to the U.S. from Saigon on 11/17/2013, so any order of countries is flexible.

Thanks so much as always for everyone's feedback and help..

Here's an update, from flights I was able to find this evening, hoping for advice on cheaper airlines out there for our travel dates here:

11/3/2013 Saigon to Siem reap via Vietnam Airlines $180 one way

11/6/2013 site reap to Yangon via MAI $205 one way (any cheaper fares?)

11/13 Yangon or Mandalay to Saigon ......*** still looking for cheapest fare for this route with minimal layover time: thai airways $450 one way!!!

A thought

I think the route Saigon/Siem Reap/Yangon/Saigon is your best routing.

Have you looked at Bangkok Airways from Siem Reap to Yangon via Bangkok as a routing (luggage straight through)

or

Thai Air Asia.

or

Thai from Saigon to Yangon with a few days stopover in Bangkok to fit in a Bangkok/Siem Reap return flight with one of the many airlines before back to Bangkok to catch one of their three daily flights to Yangon. Your TG flight,combined with a cheepy Siem Reap excursion may be the cheapest option (?)

Thank you so much. We decided that we will skip Cambodia and just fly into Bankok from Saigon and to Myamar from there (and back to Saigon via Bankok on the way home). Our flight options to Myanmar via Bankok should be more flexible and cost effective now like you suggested.
