Itinerary for 12 days in Burma- help decide

Jump to last reply

Dear all,

We are excited that we are heading to Burma in December. We have exactly 12 days in the country.
Kathie has already been very helpful, diverting me from the idea of going also to Mrauk U in such a short time. So I have been following her advice and this is what I have so far:

Dec 20- Arrival in Yangon at 11:20 PM
Dec 21- Yangon
Dec 22- Fly to Heho - Kalaw
Dec 23- Inle Lake
Dec 24- Inle Lake
Dec 25- Inle Lake
Dec 26- Inle Lake
Dec 27- Fly to Bagan
Dec 28- Bagan
Dec 29- Bagan
Dec 30- Fly to Yangon
Dec 31- ?
Jan 1- ? (international flight at 11:45 PM)

Any further recommendations? After spending the rest of Dec 30 in Yangon, what do you think of driving the morning of Dec 31 to Kyaiktiyo Paya, and stay there for the night, returning Jan1? And visiting also Bago either on the way there or on the way back? Has someone visited already? Is it special?Unfortunately we would probably have to go back to Yangon to retrieve our luggage, unless there is a way to leave it at the airport or somewhere else, since we won't be carrying it up the hill.

Also- has anyone done the 2-day trekking from Kalaw to Inle? We might be interested in that, although it would cut down our time in Inle itself (or we would fly one day later to Bagan and cut down our time there, if at all better). What do you all think?

Final question- I asked Santa Maria to book domestic flights and hotels. Moe responded and was very nice, but he came back with a full (rather expensive) package. In your experience, is it possible to simply book flights and hotels, without getting a package, which includes transfers, guides, christmas dinner etc?

Thank you in advance for all your knowledgable advice. We are quite excited!
