Burma, 10 days, flight dilemma.

Jump to last reply

I usually plan the land portion of a trip and then book flights, however, things are being done a little differently for an upcoming trip to SE Asia. I have a ticket to arrive in Burma in Jan, 2017 using FF miles. As I'm using FF miles I'd like to book my outbound ticket from the region asap.

I can fly into Rangoon and fly out from Rangoon using FF miles. My other option is to fly from Singapore (or Bangkok) using FF miles on my outbound trip from Asia. In which case, I'd travel from Rangoon - Mandalay and fly out from Mandalay to Singapore. (Much prefer Singapore as I was in Bangkok more recently).

My questions:-

I really don't have an itinerary organized as yet, Is 10 days Rangoon - (Bagan/Mandalay/Inle Lake) - Rangoon feasible to do? I'm not including international flights in those 10 days, my flight arrives early in the morning on day 1, so I can hit the ground running once I've checked in to my hotel in Rangoon and freshened up. I'm not certain I have enough time to cover each place in 10 days with the need to return to Rangoon.

Am I better off flying working out an itinerary from Rangoon - (Bagan/Inle Lake) - Mandalay and avoiding the need to return to Rangoon.

I'd still spend 10 days in Burma whether I fly in/out of Rangoon or book open jaw flights to arrive in Rangoon and depart from Mandalay.

Any advice on how to construct a 10 days itinerary will be appreciated. At this time, my main goal is to finalize my outbound flights from SE Asia.

Thanks in advance.
