Question re Burma Itinerary/Sittwe and Mrauk U

Jump to last reply

Firstly a quick thanks to those who have posted trip reports/comments on the Burma forum - its been invaluable to us (me, my sister and her gf) in planning our trip for this coming april. the three of us are doing the fairly standard Yangon/Bagan/Inle Lake/Mandalay route for the first part of the vacation. Our travel dates, which i appreciate occur during the water festival - are dictated by my sister's vacation schedule, as she is a teacher in Laos. I will then be on my own for 8 days after they go back to Laos. I know i have left it quite late to sort out the details of the tail end of the trip! But I am hoping to get some input on how to best spend that time. we have been using Shan Yoma to assist us with the plans and they proposed the following itinerary to me:

April 21 Yangon - Sittwe
April 22 - sittwe - Mrauk U (by boat)
April 23 - Mrauk U - Sittwe (by boat)
April 24 - Sittwe - Yangon (fly)
April 25 Yangon - Mawlamyine (by private saloon)
April 26 - Mawlamyine - Hpa an (by private saloon)
April 27 - overnight in Hpa an
April 28 - Hpa an - Kyaihtiyo
April 29 - Kyaihyiyo - Bago - Yangon

I assume "private saloon" is a car :) [i have emailed Shan Yoma to get more details re this itinerary - but am having email issues with them and its taking days to get responses - which i know is par for the course]. I had expressed to them an interest in Sittwe/Mrauk U but I thought, based on this forum and other research, that these areas were off limits to tourists at the moment - but even if that situation has changed - the above itinerary seems like a lot of moving around and little time spent in any of the actual places. I generally would prefer to stay in a few places and see more of them, even if that means missing out on some other sights. assuming i am able to go to Sittwe and Mrauk U, would people suggest i focus my time there? any thoughts on the above would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
