Myanmar (Burma) Itineraries – where should I go?

As with many Asian destinations your travel planning should be based on the fact things happen slowly here.  Travel times are longer than you expect and not everything will go to plan.  If the number of locations in the itineraries below seem sparse, there is a reason for this!  But you will have no problem filling in your time.

Internal airlines

include the following Air Bagan ;Air Mandalay; Yangon-airways; Myanma Airways and Myanmar Airways international


If you have one week a sensible base plan would be:
Yangon, fly to Bagan and Inle Lake or substitute Mandalay for Inle if that suits you better.     If you have a couple more days cover all four of these destinations
Flights from Yangon (RGN) to Bagan are just over 1 hour in duration.  The airport at Bagan is Nyaung U airport (NYU)
Flights from Bagan to Inle lake are also just over 1 hour in duration.  The airport at Inle Lake is located at Heho

If you have a little longer
Start adding in destinations such as
Ngapali Beach (North West of Yangon),
from Mandalay add on trips to cooler Hill stations Pyin U Lwin, trekking around Hsipaw, or visiting the ancient temples at Mingun, Amarapura or Inwa
Out of Yangon head to Mawlamyine British administrative capital of lower Burma and near the WWII Siam-Burma death railway
