So, I have heard so many good things about Myanmar that I figured I should go and see for myself. I live in Hong Kong so it's not a million miles away. I have 7 full days to discover some of the main sights but do not want to spread myself thinly as I can always go back again for longer if needed
I would appreciate any comments/recommendations on my proposed itinerary below
Friday night (late) fly HK to Yangon (stay near airport, is this an option?)
Saturday -take early morning flight to Bagan, hire a driver and explore the city
Wednesday -Leave Bagan and head to Mandalay
Friday fly back to Yangon and have 2 full days exploring the city before flying home late that night
If I wish to visit Mr Popa and Inle Lake, do I need to take a flight or are they reachable by car from the Bagan? What do you think in regards to the amount of time I am spending in each place. Is 4 days in Bagan a good idea?
Thanks for taking the time to read this message and as I said above, any comments would be most welcome
