Driving from Bagan to Inle

I'm having trouble getting a flight from Bagan to Inle -- apparently they are sold out and I'm on the wait list.

I'm thinking about hiring a car to drive us from Bagan to Inle -- has anyone done this recently? I heard that the roads were bad at points, but has that changed recently? Are there any scenic points or nice places to stop in between?

Thanks for all of the advice. I'm definitely still going to try to get onto a flight, but it looks like it's not the end of the world if I can't get onto a flight. Sounds like the scenery may be the silver lining to a road trip.

How soon do I need to book a car and driver if I'm going end of Dec? I would think that I can wait a few weeks before the date (hopefully by then I'll know what my flight status is), but then again it is peeak season.

There will always a driver/car available at short (a few days) notice-your Agent or Hotel can fix it.
