    • Trek Kalaw to Inle - festival days 2014

      Kalaw Apr 11, 2014 at 4:30 AM

      We will be arriving in Kalaw on the 13th and was hoping to do the 3 day trek to Inle April 14, 15, 16. However, the trek guide we emailed told us that they will do no trekking on the day of the festivals.
      Is this absolute? Do you think we can still find a trek guide even during that period?

      Hi, we have a 9.30 flight from Mandalay. We will have to fly from Pagan to Mandalay before. There is a flight arriving at 8.15 - I assume the airport is not so big, but would we have enough time for the transit? Thanks!

      -I have friends in Nuang Shwe and I will want to visit them for 2 weeks. The rest of the time I will be at the monastery.
      Will I be allowed to do that? Who would check?
      -I have been unable to get any info from the UK embassy of Myanmar and would rather get my visa there although I may have to go to Bangkok/KL in the end. has anyone got a visa from London recently?

      Thanks very much.

      where to go for a few extra days

      by dhammatraveller Online Now Oct 26, 2013 at 5:55 PM

      I have a few days in Yangon at the end of a trip I am taking to Burma. I will have already spen enough time in Yangon, so I am trying to decide what to do with that time. I am thinking if Inle Lake or Bagan...any suggestions about which would be better? I have never particulalrly enjoyed very touristy places, which both of those seem to be...are they worth a visit anyway? I have spent lots of time in India, adn really my favorite times have been wandering into villages and hanging out with kids. ANy suggestions?

    • Tipping the guide

      by houseswapper Online Now Aug 30, 2013 at 11:19 PM

      We are going on a tour for the first time with a guide. It has been suggested in our information that we should tip the guide which amounted to a reasonable amount at the end of the trip. It is a big company and I would prefer to have the cost worked out in the tour cost than be put in this position. Since our access to funds is limited in Myanmar and we do not want to have unnecessary currency in US or the currency of the country, I am not sure if and what to put aside.

    • Myanmar

      by houseswapper Online Now Jun 2, 2013 at 3:34 PM

      I am going to Myanmar on a tour in September. Is the current unrest something to be concerned about?
      Also the currency to take in view of a lack of ATMS.

    • On the hunt !

      by DCtrekker1 Online Now Feb 8, 2011 at 11:57 AM

      Planning a trip to Burma and Thailand next Feb. Just starting to plan the lodging part. Are there any special ***** or notable places to stay near Mandalay? Also, will be attempting to to find a replacement stone for a jadeite ring which I've worn for 25 years.. Imperial green. The stone popped out of the setting so can't think of a better way to replace it then with a memorable trip! Any ideas from the experts on either or both parts of this post.
      Many Thanks,

    • Accommodation

      by janetlee Online Now Dec 15, 2005 at 6:15 PM


      I together with 3 friends will go to Mandalay, Heho and Bagan in late January. We want to book budget but nice accomodation. However, I can't find their web sites. Can anyone help? The alternative is that we will look for the accomodation after we arrive. Will there be difficulty in having the accomodation without advance booking during such tourist peak season?
