I'm a 33 years old photographer. I want to travel to Myanmar, Bagan alone. is the region safe enough for a woman to travel by her own?
Please could anyone give advice on day time bus ticket from Bagan to Yangon. I got information that it is only Shwe Mandalar normal bus which costs you 19.99 dollars by advance booking. Will it be cheaper if I buy the ticket through a hotel in Myanmar (that I understand sells bus tickets as well)? I will first visit Mandalay for 2 nights, and then Bagan for another two nights, and finally Yangon for 4 nights. I will buy the ticket through my hotel in Mandalay for the Bagan-Yangon part if possible. Thank you.
Has anyone done the slow ferry from Bagan to Mandalay lately?
Hi, I have planned those days for a transfer which normally takes about 8 hours by private car. I would like to see more of the countyside and not staying in Mandalay. Places like Sa Ley, Chauk, Magwe look interesting. Furthermore Hsale, close to Yenangyuang but no idea if still jeep and/or 4 wheel drive is needed. I think about staying mostly on the east side of the river unless.... Now my question
Any other interesting places to see or is 2.5 days much too long?
Have to say, that later on I have more time to spent in Bagan and around Mandalay!
Your suggestions are highly appreciated.
Thank you very much
I need to figure out how to get from Bagan to Golden Cave in Pindaya and there doesn´t seem to be a bus... Does anyone have a tip for this?
Thank you so much and Happy New Year!!!!
I have been looking at Air KBZ website and noted that the winter tickets from Yangon to Bagan are already available. Has anyone flew with Air KBZ before and how reliable is their service in terms of timing and delays?
I have booked a December trip to Yangon and Bagan. Just wondering how soon can I buy the return plane tickets to Bagan? When does the winter ticket get released and how is the best way to buy?
Appreciate any advice! Thanks!
Can anyone recommend a decent hotel in Old Bagan for around30-$40? I've tried researching on the internet but can only find the high end hotels.
I currently have a reservation in New Bagan but have since been advised to find somewhere in Old Bagan for convenience.
Thanks in advance.
I'm looking into a possible trip to Myanmar and Bagan is definitely on my list. From the tips and insights of people who've been there the impression I get is the best (but most expensive) thing to do there is to ride the early morning hot air balloon. Is this thing really worth the price ($300)? I assume that only one company has a monopoly of this service?
I and my husband will be in Bagan during 13-19/02/08 we would like to have someone who can speak english to help us communicate with locals, we pay your reasonable wage include meal,student is also welcome.
please email me at [email]
Do you know any site where I can do online booking for my Yangon - Bagan - Yangon flights?
I tried to book a hotel in Old Bagan, but all the hotels with good recommendations in my price range - Tharabar Gate, Thiripyitsaya Sakura and Bagan Hotel are fully booked for the dates that I’ll be there; the only vacancies are at Serenity Hotel and I have no info about it.
Any experience with it, anyone?
Does anyone know of any companies or locals that operate bike tours in Bagan? Or is it relatively easy to go off on your own and explore?
Has anyone been cycling in Bagan recently? I have heard its a great place to explore by bike and wondered if anyone could give me some info on where to rent a bike from, cost etc? Even names of guesthouses that can rent bikes out would be helpful.
I will be in Bagan in January 2006. Planning only to spend 2 nights there which will mean one full day around bagan. Can anyone recommend what to see, best sunrise and sunset positions. What is the best way around the whole area? Cart or bicycle?
