Myanmar itinerary help

Jump to last reply

I have been working with a Yangon based travel agent for our upcoming trip to Myanmar. I would appreciate some feedback on our itinerary:

1) The proposed itinerary is to fly into Yangon, follow the route: Yangon  Bagan  Inle Lake  Mandalay, and fly out from Mandalay.
2) The first sightseeing priority is Bagan, and I asked for 3 full days. TA told me the flight from Yangon arrives early in the morning and we only need 3 nights. I am a little comprehensive about reliable flight schedule. I could insist 4-night stay (and make day trip to Mt. Pope if we get enough temples), or request afternoon flight for Bagan  Heho on day 4. What is the experience of flight schedule reliability?
3) The second sightseeing priority is Inle Lake, and I indicated an interest in Kakku. TA proposed to visit Kakku on arrival directly from airport. I think it is far, and feasible only if we take very early Bagan  Heho flight (see my concern above). Suppose we arrive late and go directly to hotel near the lake, we should still be able to take a day trip to Kakku, right? Will it be a longer drive? Are we going to regret it if we missed it? In any event, we will make sure to set aside 2 full days for boat trips around the lake.
4) Once I am satisfied with enough amount of time in Bagan and Inle Lake, I can use the rest of time in Yangon and Mandalay. Definitely Shwedagon (sunrise or sunset time?). Is boat trip from Mandalay to Mingun on a private boat worthwhile? It is highly recommended by TA but I am not completely sold.

Once the itinerary is fixed, we would proceed with costing. Some questions:

5) Other than domestic flight and hotel, I am think of car service from/to each airport, and day trip to Kakku (if not on arrival day). We should be able to easily get around ourselves in the cities, hire our own horse-cart in Bagan, and hire our own boat in Inle Lake. Is this a reasonable assumption?
6) In your experience, is TA generally willing to break down and itemize the overall cost? That will help us to select only services of value to us.

Thanks, and looking forward for the trip.
