Myanmar Travel Itinerary


Starting from Yangon, stretch your plan legs up the steps to the Shwedagon Paya at night when its golden zedi (stuppa) glows under the floodlights. Next day, wander around downtown ending at Boyuke Aung San Market, which has the country’s best selection of handicrafts and souvenirs.


Hire a drive, fly, or take a train or an overnight bus to Mandalay, where you can climb Mandalay Hill, see the famed Mahamuni Paya, and witness the Moustache Brothers one day, and on the next make a rushed day trip to zedi-studded Sagaing Hill U Bein’s Bridge in Amarapura at sunset.


The boat rip down the Ayeyarwady River to Bagan takes a day, but is a refreshing way to take in life along one of Asia’s mightiest rivers. In Bagan, take a horse cart ride around 42 sq km of 800 year old temples.

Inle Lake

Next day, cool off in the Shan Hills to the east of the Inle lake – reached by bus, taxi or plane – where dug out canoes can take you to floating markets unders the flight paths of egretsl after a day, consider a day trip to Pindaya Caves to see their 8000 Buddha images. Fly or take a bus back to Yangon.

    Hi, we are a group of 16 travelers from Malaysia. We are engaging a Myanmar tour agent to guide and conduct the 14 days tour of Burma, Thailand and Laos this December. My questions are
    1. What type of visa to apply for entry to Myanmar ?
    2. The Myanmar suggest to apply the visa for us for a fee. Can we apply in Malaysia ? If so what is the visa fees ?
    3. We will fly into Yangon from Kuala Lumpur and on day 8, we will fly out from Heho to Tachilek from there we cross into Thailand. Is that possible and safe ?
    Thank you.
