      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!!

    • Where to stay in Inle Lake? -- bungalows?

      by tandjtravel Online Now Jan 29, 2016 at 10:32 AM

      Hi, I heard there are nice bungalows to stay in at Inle Lake. Does anyone have info on these? Or any nice guest houses or hotel? $30 - $60 range for 2 people. I'm fine with something away from a touristy area as long as there is transportation to get around. Thanks!

    • What are the top things to do at Inle lake?

      by tandjtravel Online Now Jan 20, 2016 at 10:53 AM

      I'm not interested in lounging but want to see sites and have unique experiences. I'm going to Thailand as well and I hear it also has floating markets and such. Is Inle Lake different than what Thailand has to offer? It seems like such a sleepy town that we could do this in a day. No? Thanks!

    • First timer...Two Days at the Lake...what is a must around the lake...

      by Lassy123 Online Now Aug 11, 2010 at 1:19 PM


      I will be arriving at Inle Lake in a couple of weeks. I just have two days at the lake. I land at Heho at 9:15 in the morning. I am staying at the Inle Princess Resort.

      So I only have two days. I want to avoid tourist traps, but want to enjoy the lake life, seeing people, visiting major temples..

      On day two Should I go to the Southern part of the lake Saga2? My understanding is this will take all day, and sounds wonderful, but I will miss other things.

      Thank you

    • Heho Airport to hotel transfer

      by chodura Online Now Aug 18, 2008 at 5:47 AM

      We will be staying at Inle Princess Resort which is on the lake. We would like to know whether we should book a hotel transfer from Heho airport to the hotel. Can you please let me know what was your experience of getting the taxi and boat on your own and how much it cost and whether there is much room for bargaining. I was reading how the taxi drivers form a cartel. Is it similar for boats too? Thanks very much.
