If there's any VTers who are in Mandalay on the 29/12 or 30/12 (2016 that is) and want to share a taxi to U Bein bridge for sunrise and then morning in Sagaing, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Taxi charter is 40000kyat from 0500 to approx 1300, so would be great to split it.
Hello Everybody and Happy New Year,
I just got the opportunity to take about 3.5 weeks of vacation starting from mid-Feb. 2017 and I am thinking about goint to Myanmar - without having had much time to research. I am an experienced solo traveler and would prefer to buy a plane ticket and pre-book accomodation for the first night only and decide the rest while I am on my way, but do not now if that is feasible during that time of the year.
Since the choice wether to go on a tour or not needs to be made in the next days (I have only ca. 5 weeks before departure left) I would highly appreciate your quick feedback on the following questions to help me decide:
During this period
a) should accomodation be pre-booked?
b) can small tours be booked at the respective city on short notice (book today, start tour the next) or should they be pre-booked?
c) can bus-tickets be purchased at the day of departure? And the ferry Bagan-Mandalay?
d) Should national plane-tickets (from North to Yangon) be booked beforehand?
And will solo-travel still be worthwile with next to nil Burmese language skills (usually I learn bits and pieces of local language before)?
What would you recommend?
