Myanmar - starting point

Jump to last reply

I have flights booked to Yangon for November. I started working with Santa Maria, but I have not been impressed with their responsiveness, so I contacted IOT for suggested 10 day itineraries.

My question is: does it make more sense to fly into Yangon or Mandalay? From Myanmar, we want to go to Chiang Rai, but I think we may have to fly to Chiang Mai instead. It looks like the flights to Thailand leave from Yangon so should we start in the north and weave our way south? We didn't really plan to go to Mandalay, but if it makes sense to build our trip that way, I'll switch things up. We've been to Chiang Mai, but we want to spend more time exploring northern Thailand.

Aside from Bagan and Inle Lake, are there any "must see" places you'd recommend? We'll have private guides, and would prefer not to have a cookie cutter type trip.

Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions.
