To Mandalay or Not to Mandalay?

Jump to last reply

Hi, We (family of 5 including 2 teenage boys and 1 pre-teen girl) are going to Myanmar for 2 weeks in December/January. Our itinerary has us arriving and staying in Yangon for 2 days, then flying up to Heho so we can trek Kalaw to Inle, then stay at Inle 2 days. From there, we plan to go up to Mandalay for 1-2 days and then take a boat down the Irrawady to Bagan where we will stay for 3-4 days before flying back to Yangon and then home again to San Francisco.
I'm trying not to take so many flights (right now, flights are Yangon to Heho, and then Bagan back to Yangon), and planned to hire someone to drive us from Inle Lake up to Mandalay, but am wondering if it is worth it to go all the way up to Mandalay. Would it make more sense to slow down and spend an extra day in Inle and an extra day in Bagan instead?
Also, any idea how to find a driver/car to take us from Inle to either Mandalay or Bagan? Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
