Trip Report Just Back from Myanmar!

Jump to last reply

11 Full days in Myanmar with photography on the forefront!

First some disclaimers: We probably weren’t true Fodorites this trip--didn’t do everything the right way and did some things the un-recommended way! I guess I thought we were adventure travelers, but we took the easy way at several points this time. Starting with---we didn’t use Santa Maria nor Min Thu. I felt a little guilty about that--but our planning started sooo late for this trip and I was getting a little nervous when I wasn’t getting responses back by email. (Zaw was out of the office for two weeks.) But in the end, our time was great and we did--like all true forum lovers here--love Myanmar--the people, the land, the experiences,.....and we owe so much of that to you all--from your tips, trip reports, photos and general recommendations. So Thanks!

LAX-TOKYO--KUALA LUMPUR--YANGON!

When we couldn’t find any frequent flier flights from Bangkok, Pook recommended KL and other sites and American Airlines connected us up with Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia Air had the only good flight schedules for the date that was available, so even though more expensive, that’s the way we went. We had wanted economy class tickets from LAX, but there were only two tickets available--business class going and first class returning. Had to “buy” a few extra miles, but it was worth it. Now I’m afraid we’re hooked on this higher level of travel! (We had the problems with arranging our travel because this was kind of a last-minute trip idea and time was short.)

We used the “anti-jet-lag diet” as we always do and which works well for us and left LAX (Los Angeles) at 11:40 AM for Tokyo. Had to overnight in cold Tokyo and stayed in a cheap hotel: Narita Kikisui near the airport. Probably a 2 and 1/2 star level, but adequate. Had a closet that was about 5” deep! Walked to the Narita Temple area in the morning before our flight. Flew 7-8 hours the next day on Japan Air to Kuala Lumpur and overnighted at Jawadene Inn and Suites--a Bed and Breakfast I found online for $ 49, which turned out to be fabulous. A lovely large home in a gated community, decorated with large artifacts from around Asia, run by an American ex-Marine and his Malaysian-American wife.
