5 hours at Yangon airport

Hi everyone

We arrive from Inle Lake at 10am and our flight back to Bangkok isn't until 3pm. I assume we cant check our bags until 12pm for our onwards flight which narrows our "free" time. I have read there is a war cemetery nearby that is worth visiting. Is this doable by taxi in a couple of hours or should we just find somewhere to have lunch and read a book?

That's only about one hr drive and less traffic.

If your flights leave at 3pm, the earliest check in will be 1 pm.

You should have enough time to go there.
