Burma (Myanmar) proposed itinerary

Jump to last reply

Needless to say the many trip reports posted by the generous participants on these forums have been invaluable guides for planning our upcoming Burma (Myanmar) adventure.
I want to have a defined travel schedule before contacting a local Myanmar travel agent. Please comment on our proposed itinerary outlined below. History/architecture and local culture are what enhance our travels.
Arrive Yangon Feb 7, 2013 at 17:10. Feb 8, initial exploration of Yangon.
Feb 9, 2013 fly to Heho, 07:30 departure and 09:20 arrival. Arrange driver to take us to Kakku on the way to hotel. Feb 10, 11 and morning of 12th to explore Inle Lake. Late checkout on Feb 12. Fly to Mandalay, 15:45 – 16:15,
Mandalay, arrive late on Feb 12. Arrange driver for Feb 13 to take us to Amarapura, Sagaing and sunset at U Bein Bridge. Late departure on Feb 14, use the morning for more Mandalay exploration. (Do we need to schedule an additional full day? Depart on Feb. 15?)
Fly Mandalay to Nyaung U (Bagan), Feb 14, 17:05 arrival. Tour Bagan Feb 15 & 16, half day on Feb 17. Arrange tours with one of the many recommended guides on Fodor’s or Tripadvisor forums. (is this really enough time in Bagan?)
Fly Nyaung U to Yangon; Feb 17, arrive at 18:20. Feb 18, full day to explore more of Yangon. Driver and guide? Is driver sufficient?
Yangon to BKK: Feb 19; 08:30 – 10:15
