7ish days in Myanmar, advice please (itinerary, ballooning, restaurants)

Jump to last reply

Apologies in advance for my writing skills which are mediocre.

So we have the following time frame. Arrival in Yangon December 2nd at 8pm - Departure from Yangon December 9th at 5:30 pm.

This gives us just a bit of time and we would like to visit both Bagan and the elephant camp. Is this too much?
We have received tentative itineraries from a few agencies and they are all the same with approximately the same cost, it seems we are spreading ourselves too thin though... I'm not sure how stressful it will be with the internal flight, after all the international flights to get us there.

Would it be more cost effective to have the agency help with just the transfers to every place and have us book our on hotels and find drivers/guides on the spot? Is this easy?

Are there any recommended private guides/drivers for Bagan and Yangon?

Another question I have is regarding the cost of ballooning over Bagan, is it cheaper to book it once in Myanmar? Will there be availability given that it is the high season?

Finally, and thank you for bearing with me thus far, are there any favorite restaurants you can recommend in Bagan and in Yangon?

Thank you for any insight we are very excited to be going to Myanmar for the first time
