My boyfriend and I are thinking to go and explore as much as we can of Myanmar in November. We were thinking to go for about 2 weeks and a half (cannot do more because of work).
First of all I was wondering what the weather was like in November there if any of you have been at this time?
We have travelled to Bali and Vietnam and loved it. What we did was only book accommodation for like the 2 first nights we arrived and then founds places to stay as we went along. I have read on the net that this is a bit more difficult to do in Burma as there are fewer hotels/guesthouses and they are also more expensive. What would you guys recommend?
I also read that it's a lot more pricey there compared to Vietnam for example. We are 2 and would probably have like £1000 each for everything once there (transport/attractions/food/hotels..)
As we are somehow limited in time and the country is so big with so many fantastic places to see what do you think would be a great itinerary? We would land in Yangon, then would like to see the lake, mountains, beach, locals... you name it! ;)
I think there is also some festivals around that time, lights and hot air balloon.. Any experiences?
I know I'm asking for a lot so I really appreciate your help and your advice!
