Annapurna and Myanmar Circuits in May

Jump to last reply

Returning to Nepal to do the Annapurna circuit and then fly to Myanmar for the nice cool (hahahahahaha) month of May. Well, hey, I was gonig to be close, I planned it and THEN I looked at the temperatures. So my backpack and gear bags will be carrying gear for high altitude and gear for 40 degrees C. Oh well. You gotta love travel.

I'll be doing a trip report under another title but wished to invite those of you who have experience especially in Myanmar to fire me some thoughts and recommendations.

Here's what to know: I am 62, travel solo, prefer non touristy sites, off the beaten path experiences, hostels to hotels, village visits, love staying close to the earth, could care less about expensive places to stay until perhaps the last night of the trip. For those who've been to Myanmar I would so love your insights and advice.

My current destinations include of course Yangon, Bagan, Heho, Inle Lake, Kengtung, and then I have no clue. I was going to fly down to Kawthawng to the archipelago but the resort is under repairs (Agoda was happy to make a reservation and take my money but nobody happened to inform me that the place was closed until October- something I just found out myself when I was reconfirming reservations).

I'd like to get down the coast a bit and see the golden boulder but also just dig around. i"m not a beach girl so other options are better. Please kindly, those of you who have been, please make suggestions..

My itinerary is already set for flights, but what I do around these areas is all up in the air. Thanks to all for your kind thoughts and suggestions.
