Car and Driver vs. Flying for Myanmar?

Jump to last reply

My sister is travelling to Myanmar in September, she bought tickets spur of the moment, maybe without thinking (broke up with the BF, wanted to get 'away'...She sure is getting FAR away!)
She will be landing in Yangon Sun Sept 6th at 11:30pm , and departing Yangon Sun Sept 14th 1:10am

She hasn't made any plans yet, but wants to see Bagan and Inle Lake. Would hiring a car and driver be a safer option to flying? Or would that just kill all the time she had on the ground?
Her budget (excluding international airfare) is about $1800USD. Do you think this is too low?

I think she is leaning towards a car&driver, as that way she can have a guide throughout- she enjoys small group tours, but did not plan one for this trip. Maybe flying would mean getting a new day-guide for each location?

Can anyone recommend (or tell us ones to avoid) a tour company?
