Eight Days Solo in Burma

Jump to last reply

I'm a late-20's guy about to spend eight days in Burma in September as a solo traveler, and I desperately need help with my itinerary. I want to visit Rangoon and Bagan, but other than that I'm open. Here's what my itinerary looks like so far:

Day 1: Late evening arrival in Rangoon; straight to bed (staying at Bike World B&B).
Day 2: Rangoon
Day 3: Rangoon
Day 4: Travel to Bagan (train? plane? automobile?) Staying at Blue Bird Hotel.
Day 5: Bagan
Day 6: Bagan
Day 7: Bagan; Travel somewhere else (aeroplane? jog? velocipede?)
Day 8: ?
Day 9: ? (travel late evening to Rangoon to overnight)
Day 10: 10:25am flight to Singapore

I am completely open to changing my itinerary - adding, subtracting, or changing the order of operations. I want to see the highlights, but also get off the beaten path a bit.

On a side note, if you have any suggestions for a solo travel in Burma please tell me. Everywhere else in Southeast Asia it has been pretty easy to meet other solos, but I'm not sure that will be the case in Burma.
