Thanks to everyone for continued advice, as we are less than three weeks to go before we leave for our trip to Burma (with stops in BKK on either end). I know i'll have lots of questions as I reread trip reports, look for restaurants, etc,. Here's the one big issue: I recently got our internal flight schedule from Zaw and they are all VERY early in the morning. We have two full days in Mandalay, arriving around 8:30am from Bagan. The two things I really wanted to do in Mandalay were sagaing and pyin oo lwin but nixed the latter when I thought I only had one full day. Currently we would spend the first day in mandalay and then have a guide to take us to sagaing on the second day. But there's not that much I really want to see in Mandalay (not really interested in the palace or the hill) and am wondering if it makes sense to go to pyin oo lwin straight from the airport, maybe even spend a night, then have the car take us to sagaing the next day. I don't know distances,can't find much info on hotels in pyin oo lwin (I thought it might be cooler spraying there than in Mandalay). Does it make sense to do either a day trip to sagaing from pyin oo lwin? Or to go directly to one or the other from the airport on the first day? Our flight leaves in the early morning (around 9) to Heho on the morning of the third day. Thanks again everyone.
