Have more or less finalize my solo trip in May 2014.
Day 1 - Arrive Yangon at around 10.30am. Depart to Bagan via JJ Express at 8pm.
Day 2 - Arrive Bagan (staying at Zfreeti Hotel)
Day 3 - Bagan
Day 4 - Bagan to Mandalay via Ye Thu Aung bus at 8am
Day 5 - Arrive Mandalay (staying at Yadanarbon Hotel)
Day 6 - Mandalay to Taungyi via Shwe Nan Daw bus at 6.30pm
Day 7 - Inle (staying at Aquarius Inn)
Day 8 - Taungyi to Yangon via Shwe Taung yoe or Taung paw Thar bus at 6pm
Day 9 - Yangon (Staying at Hotel Grand United Chinatown)
Day 10 - Depart Yangon
Wanted to check the following:
1) if the itinerary is feasible
2) are these more comfortable VIP buses? I got the info from a agent and I told her I wanted something more comfortable and luxurious as I do not mind to pay a little bit more.
3) if the bus stations in each area is near the hotel I am staying - is it in walking distance or do I need to take a transport to reach. Understand the night bus will arrive at very early morning so is it safe for a single lady to walk?
3) for Day 1, I have many hours to kill after arriving in Yangon before I catch the night bus to Bagan at 8pm. How far is the airport to the bus station? Is there any day room available to rest or is there anywhere I can leave my trolley luggage so that I could do a short walk around Yangon?
Thanks in advance for the advice.
