Trip Report Great trip to Myanmar, Bangkok and Hong Kong

Jump to last reply

Thanks all for the travel advice. We had a great trip!

Santa Maria made all our Myanmar travel arrangements. We did the standard trip, Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay and Inle Lake. We flew in and out of Bangkok and ended the trip in Hong Kong.

We should have packed lighter!
It gets cool and night and it was actually cold when we left Inle Lake early morning.
Even where credit cards were accepted, the machine/network was not reliably available.
We didn't want to script the trip too much, but it was hard to figure out what to do with the driver/guide when they wanted to take us somewhere else the next day.
I can see why people skip Mandalay.

Myanmar was amazing, Bagan was the highlight, but it was most interesting to see the local lifestyle and how rapidly things are changing.

More to follow as time permits.

Thanks again,
Carl
