Hi get2,

In your 3 itineraries,Plan 2 would be find for you, I think your travel time is low season and this time is rainy.That's why Inly lake is shouldn't visit in this time.

Have a nice trip.:-)

Hi,

The 1st itinerary and the 3rd one seem to look the same. Maybe you had a mistake post??? I support that itinerary instead of the second one. With 6 days, you can visit Bagan and Inle Lake, which I think the best destintions among 4 must-sees in Myanmar. Yangon is indispensable for arrival and departure flights. There's enough time for you to explore Bagan and Inle Lake in 2 days for each.

The second choice is ok if you are REALLY interested in Bagan and would like to explore as much as possible this area, rather than spending time in any other place.

Cheers

Bagan is fascinating and once you arrive and realize you have only 2 days there, you will be kicking yourselves for not staying longer, but if all you can afford timewise is 6 days or so then I'd opt to add Inle Lake in there as well.

Plan 1 is fine provided you check carefully for the flight information.

In summer time, there will be no direct flight from Bagan to Inle Lake sometimes, you will have a flight Bagan - Mandalay - Heho ( for Inle) instead. It takes about 1 hour and it is fine.

Bagan is a beautiful area but if you could combine Bagan and Inle, surely it is better !

I too had to do a double take on the three itineraries, since #1 and #3 are identical. In fact, this is the itinerary I am doing next month. I feel comfortable with two nights each in Bagan and Inle Lake. I used Myanmar Shalom for my hotels, transfers and flights. They have been great so far.

#5 That will give you a taste of those destinations, and if you enjoy them, you will probably want to go back and spend more time there on your next trip. :-)
