Misc. Burma "to do" questions

Jump to last reply

Have a number of different questions

First is on booking a horse cart to see the temples in Bagan. Is this something to arrange through a hotel when you arrive? Any tips on getting a good one, or it's all pretty random?

Has anyone done riding on the Circle Line in Yangon? I have two full days there and wonder if this is something worth doing? I understand it is quite long, several hours, but my rides on subway trains in Mexico City and Kuala Lumpur have been very worth it...

Shopping strategy... I will be in Yangon,Bagan, Mandalay and Inle Lake. I would like to buy some traditional Burmese things - textlies, unframed paintings, laquer items or interesting jewelry (nothing too precious). Should I look for these at markets? Which ones? Unfortunately will be in Yangon only at the beginning of the trip when I am probably not going to be ready to buy anything yet. Or is there "must buy" things in Yangon?
Thanks.
