I'm on a very tight schedule. I'm also an older woman travelling alone. I wonder if someone with some local knowledge can tell me if this is doable:
Arrive Mandalay Oct 11 and purchase ferry ticket for the next day to Bagan.
On arrival in Bagan purchase bus ticket to return to Mandalay either on 14 or 15th.
I suppose my question is is there any chance transport will be booked out in advance?
I also haven't made a reservation for a second night in Bagan. Are there enough guesthouses to find modest accommodation without prebooking? I'm not picky.
If anything goes wrong can I get a taxi back to Mandalay? How much is it likely to cost?
I'd be grateful for your advice.thanks
