Our 15 Day Myanmar adventure

We loved our holiday in Myanmar. 
Here is the itinerary put together for us by our Travel Agent. 
We took 5 internal flights; Myanmar is surprisingly large, three times the size of Great Britain. 
You will note we had lots of early starts and so we really enjoyed the three days relaxing at Ngapali Beach. 
Our absolute highlights were Bagan and Inle Lake.



Feb 6th: Arrival Yangon. An evening visit to the famous Shwedagon Pagoda

Sunset at the Shwedagon Pagoda, Yangon
Feb 7th: Yangon sightseeing

Tri shaw ride in Yangon
Feb 8th: Yangon-Bagan (Flight 06:20/07:40 am) Bagan Sightseeing

Sunset in Bagan
Feb 9th: Bagan sightseeing by bike


Feb 10th: A visit to Mt Popa & Evening sunset boat ride along the Ayeyarwaddy River


Feb 11: Bagan - Mandalay (07:35/08:05 am) Sightseeing Mandalay


Feb 12: Visit Amapura, Sagaing & Inwa


Feb 13: Boat trip to Mingun


Feb 14: Mandalay HeHo (09.30/10:30) Inle Lake sightseeing by boat

Inle Lake
Feb 15: A visit to Indein village


Feb 16: Heho - Thande (09:30/10:30 am) Transfer to Ngapali Beach


Feb 17: Ngapail Beach


Feb 18: Ngapali Beach


Feb 19: Thande-Yangon (13:45/14:35 am) cocktails & dinner at Strand Hotel

Feb 20: Yangon sightseeing, Lunch at the Governors Residence Afternoon transfer to airport for departure.

If time was short we'd reduce our time in Mandalay and/or we would have loved to have done the two-three day trek into Inle Lake. However as by this time some of us were sick, so maybe we were better off in smart hotels with nice bathrooms!
