Myanmar Travel Itinerary – Yangon to Muruk U

Take a few days in Yangon, and see Shwedagon Paya, Aung San’s old home, and wander around downtown. Take a bus, or taxi to Bago to see a Buddha extravaganza by day, then continue to Kyaiktiyo for the night; wake up by doing a truck / trek up to the balance-act that is the Golden Rock. From Kyaiktiyo, get to kalaw, for some treks in the Shan Holls, spend a day at Pindaya Caves to see their 8000 Buddha images and explore the Inle Lake for a few days. In October / November, you can see the ballon festival in Taunggyi, where you can catch a bus ride to Mandalay, where you can visit four ancient cities; Mingun, Amarparu, Inwa and Sagaing. From Mandalay, take a boat to Bagan, allowing three days to temple-hop and honor the nat(spirit) at Mount Popa. Bus or taxi to Pyay to see the ruins of the ancient Pyu city by ox cart.

Two options for the rest of your stay add on three days from Kyaiktiyo, by busing to Mwalamyine neat the WWII “Death Railway”, then take Myanmar’s lovelist boat ride to Hpa-an for a mountain climb and lunch, with monkeys. Then, when in Mandalay, add on three day trip to refreshing cooler Pyin U Lwin, a flower scented hill station with waterfalls, and do a DIY trek in Hsipaw. Or scarp those two side trips, and take a six day trip from Pyay firstly to Muruk U, the Rakhaing’s hillock verion of Bagan and then snorkel and eat seafood at Ngapali Beach. From here, take flight or bus ride to Yangon.
