First timer trying to prepare for trip of a lifetime: BURMA

Jump to last reply

Thank everyone in advance for suggestions and facts that will help my journey.

Traveling to Myanmar has always been on my bucket list and place I've dreamed of visiting. I love photographing. From architecture to still life, to portraits and practically anything that grabs my eye. Enjoy hiking, and meeting new people. I've been to India and the Middle East, Vietnam and Cambodia and Laos.

My plan is to fly to Rangoon, spend two weeks and then to Thailand for another two weeks. All beginning at the end of October through end of November.

Trying to find out all I can so I can best prepare for my adventure to Myanmar.

The only guide book I found was Lonely Planet and that was published 2011. So I hear the prices of hotels are no longer relevant.

I've had a difficult time finding current information regarding places to stay, prices, and if credit cards are used in many hotels. I hear prices are very expensive, and that you have to reserve far in advance. Which saddens me as don't like to schedule my travels. Love to stay as long as I like, and head to the next place... on my own schedule. I also hear there are more ATM around, but changing dollars to local currency can be challenging. I read that you have to travel with all your cash and it has to be perfect condition.

And how to get from city to city? Flying? Train? or Bus?

As you can tell, I have many questions and hope I haven't taken up too much of your time.

Looking forward to hearing from you and thanking you for your kind response, Thank you!
