Myanmar through eyes of a local

Jump to last reply

Hi there,




I'm 24 years old and I would like to make a trip to Myanmar for 14-21 days. Have not decided yet if I want to do this on my own or in a small group. What I do know is that I want to see Myanmar through the eyes of a local, using public transport instead of a personal driver, seeing places that you would never get to see with a touristic travel agency. I would love for instance to overnight in a buddhist monastery. I wont go between November-Febrary, just to avoid too many tourists.


I assume I should contact a local agency, or maybe I could organise this whole trip on my own. I dont know.




Maybe you could have some tips for me?




Looking forward to your reply. Thanks in advance for your tips.




Kind regards!
