14 Day Burma Itinerary -- Seeking Input

Jump to last reply

Hi All. Please let me know your thoughts on the itinerary below. The schedule is somewhat rigid, as we had to structure the rest of the trip around the non-daily Kengtung flights.


10-Mar: Arrive Yangon around noon. Yangon Sightseeing (Shwedagon Pagoda at late afternoon, other sites if time permits). Hotel in Yangon.

11-Mar: Yangon-Mandalay (early morning flight). Mandalay Sightseeing. Hotel in Mandalay.

12-Mar: Mandalay Sightseeing. Hotel in Mandalay.

13-Mar: Mandalay-Kengtung (Air Bagan 1240-1430 or Yangon Air 1310-1500). Kengtung Sightseeing. Hotel in Kengtung.

14-Mar: Kengtung Sightseeing. Hotel in Kengtung.

15-Mar: Kengtung Sightseeing. Hotel in Kengtung.

16-Mar: Kengtung-Heho (Air Bagan 1445-1540 or KBZ 1530-1625). See Pindaya caves on way(?). Hotel in Inle.

17-Mar: Inle Sightseeing (full day boat ride). Hotel in Inle.

18-Mar: Inle Sightseeing. Hotel in Inle.

19-Mar: Heho-Bagan (Yangon Air 1155-1235). Hotel in Bagan.

20-Mar: Bagan Sightseeing. Hotel in Bagan.

21-Mar: Bagan Sightseeing. Hotel in Bagan.

22-Mar: Bagan-Yangon (early morning site). Yangon Sightseeing (see sites missed first time there). Hotel in Yangon.

23-Mar: Depart Yangon at 12:15PM


Also, several specific questions:

(1) What's the best way to structure the two days in Mandalay? The side trips interest us more than the sites in Mandalay itself. I'd like to see the U Bein bridge at sunset or sunrise. Also, a short river cruise would be nice to do.

(2) For the time in Kengtung, what are the best villages/tribes to see for those two full days? Is there anything worthwhile to do on the days we fly in and out, or are those days wasted?

(3) What's the best way to spend the second full day in Inle. And what would be good to do the morning we leave?

(4) In Bagan, when's the best time to fit in a side-trip to Mt. Popa (leaving enough time to actually climb up to the top)? Perhaps this would be best for the day we arrive.

Thank you for all the help!

(P.S. I've also posted this on TA; I'm presuming it's not bad form to cross-post things.)
