Yangon/Bangkok/Hong Kong--how much time for each!!

Jump to last reply

Our Burma itinerary is just about worked out:

11/24--arrive early evening Yangon/the Strand
11/25--half-day tour Yangon
11/26--6:15 a.m. flight to Heho/drive to Kakku/Lake Inle--Princess Garden (wait list for Inle Lake Princess although the Princess Garden gets wonderful reviews and there's a definite appeal to staying in a small intimate guest house like this)
11/27--11/30--Inle Lake
11/30--late afternoon flight to Bagan/ Tharabar Gate
12/1-3--Bagan
12/3--Mandalay/Rupar Mandalar
12/4--Pyin Oo Lwin day trip
12/5--12/15--Pandaw River Cruise
12/15--Yangon--arrive about 1:30/The Strand
12/16-Yangon
12/17--8:30 flight to Bangkok??????

So, my questions:
1. We have 2 1/2 days in Yangon all told. Is that plenty--considering the first will be w/jet lag?
2. Is Bangkok "closer" to Burma culturally so that HK offers more of a contrast?
3. Does taking the afternoon flight to Bangkok, do an overnight in Bangkok--and then fly to HK in the a.m. of the 18th thus providing the extra time in Yangon make sense?

It's really losing almost a full day in transit from Yangon to Hong Kong that is making me question our present plan! (All flights between Yangon/BK/HK will be Air Asia).

And that's it. Many thanks for clarifying thoughts.
