Questions regarding Burma itinerary

Jump to last reply

I am starting to think about an itinerary for a possible trip to Burma next Jan. and I have a few questions-

1-Has anyone been to Monywa? Is it worth spending a day and a night there to see the caves? Are the caves similar to Pindaya caves which we are including on our itinerary..

2-Has anyone taken the all day boat from Mandalay to Bagan? Is the scenery worth spending 10-12 hours on the boat or should we fly? Time and money are not considerations. for making this decision.

3-Has anyone taken a day hike around Kalaw. Is it worth spending the time and effort of making the hike or should we skip it. It won't take time away from our itinerary, but if it won't add a lot to our trip, then I am leaning toward skipping it.

Thanks.
