Itinerary for first trip to Myanmar

Jump to last reply

I would greatly appreciate advice regarding the following tentative itinerary for a first trip to Myanmar, which I will do in February with my adult son. We are interested in seeing the major sights, learning more about local life and culture, and seeing some of the country side as well as cities. We are not interested in shopping. I particularly wonder whether I should skip the night in Monywa and thus not see the sights around there like the Po Win Daung Caves, Thanboddhay temple, and Bodhi Tataung, and instead devote that time to more time in the Mandalay area or Inle Lake. Thank you very much for any suggestions.
Day 1-early morning arrival in Yangon. full day tour of Yangon, night in Yangon.
Day 2-fly to Bagan and full day tour of Bagan. Night in Bagan.
Day 3-full day tour of Bagan area. Night in Bagan.
Day 4-full day tour of Bagan area. Night in Bagan.
Day 5-fly to Mandalay and drive to/spend night in Monywa (stopping in Amarapura and Inwa), or revise to focus just on sights within a 2-hour drive of Mandalay and spend night in Mandalay?
Day 6-Po Win Daung Caves, Thanboddhay Temple in Monywa, Thanboddhay Temple. Sights between Monywa and Mandalay, including Sagaing and U Bein Bridge (or just sights around Mandalay if we skip the Monywa area). Night in Mandalay.
Day 7-Mingun and Mandalay. Night in Mandalay.
Day 8-Fly to Heho. Drive to Pindaya. Night in Kalaw.
Day 9- Half-day trek from Kalaw. Drive to Inle Lake. Night at Inle Lake.
Day 10-Inle Lake sightseeing. Night at Inle Lake.
Day 11-Inle Lake sightseeing. Night at Inle Lake.
Day 12-Transfer to Yangon from Inle Lake area. Sightsee in Yangon area.
Day 13-departure day.
