      Do you know if there are tours leaving from Bagan or Mandalay which include a visit to Kayan villages? As far as I could understand there are excursions but from Inle lake.

      Where do backpacking /where use agents, 3 week trip central-NE Myanmar by bus/boat/trek (in my 50s)

      Myanmar (Burma) Oct 22, 2016 at 2:01 AM

      Hi there!
      I plan a solo, almost backpacking, 3 week trip, next month, around central – northeast Myanmar, trying to minimize or even better :) exclude the travel agents (maybe not possible - nor wise!).
      My initial idea is to do a loop Bagan –Mandalay – Hsipaw – Inle lake and back to Yangon, by public transport, a bit of boat rides where it is interesting, some easy trekking to experience nature and local villages, while keeping budget costs low as possible, maybe 30-50 $/day?
      Could you please suggest a rough idea about where is it possible and effective cost/travel-wise, to do everything independently, and where it worth to use agents?
      I am in my 50s, still enjoying backpacking independent travel, as I’ve always been doing, and yet trying to cope with the difficulties that may occur. Luxuries are not my priority at all, but I’d enjoy some ease here and there, if it is cost / time / and travel-quality worthwhile. I hope, by this, I managed to communicate my complicated thought, well to you :) .
      I already started studying a couple of guidebooks, but it would hugely help to get a first guidance from you guys, so I focus my search and planning of the rest of the many details for this itinerary, to the right direction.
      Thank you in advance!
      Happy travels!!

      Need to get in touch with William (Win Htay) at Chaungtha Beach

      Chaungtha Aug 17, 2009 at 3:25 AM

      William(Win Htay) is a friend of mine, who has a restaurant on the beach at Chaungtha called William's. He is helping me with a project to educate some children in Chaungtha. I am unable to get in touch with him the usual means: he has a handphone which is not receiving calls at all( so my friends from Yangon cant reach him). if any of the VT members are visiting Chaungtha, could you please find out the telephone number that I can reach him? Thank you so much in advance
