Please comment on suggested itinerary from Santa Maria

Jump to last reply

This is what I provided to them as a starting point: A group of six are planning trip to Myanmar in November. We will be arriving on Nov 9 and departing on Nov 23.
2 men and 4 women. We want to go to Bagan including hot air ballooning, Inle Lake including side trip to Kakku and Sankar. If we have time we would like to do some trekking/hiking. And of course some time in Yangoon.. We do like comfortable, clean but it does not need to be luxury or for business. We like smaller boutique hotels. So we do not need to stay at the Traders Hotel or other big hotels. Can you please put together a trip and add in any of area or side trip you feel is important to do.

It seems that she added alot of Mandalay and not so much Inle Lake but...since I am unfamiliar with some of the towns. Your comments are welcome.
