BURMA--trip planning..

Jump to last reply

As some of you know from reading several other threads here, I am planning to visit Burma with two friends next winter. We will take the 2-week Pandaw cruise on the Irrawaddy, departing March 1. (booked separately)

I just received a quote from one of the Yangon travel agencies recommended here (Gracious Myanmar) and am a bit surprised/shocked by the price. I did ask the TA to swap the InlePrincess for the InleLake View Resort,and to get us to Mandalay at the end, so that we can continue on to Shanghai from there.

Please let me know what you think:

Arrival Yangon, GMT guide Ko Nyi Nyi Will meet on your arrival. Overnight at Savoy Hotel.
