Yangon - 8 days

Hello,

can anyone comment on the below itenarary:

1) Kyaikhtiyo via Bago

2) Maulmein - Kyaikthanlan Pagoda / View Point of Mawlamyine

3) Thanbyuzayat

4) Thanlyin /and Kyauktan

Eg we plan to cover these locations by car, is it too long/tiring? Or any other suggestions to be covered that is more beautiful for 1st timers in Myanmar?

The quotation is USD390 only for guide & transportation.

Can you please advice this is reasonable?

Thanks.

Regards

Hi

USD390 only for Guide& Transportation is not available for your trip itinerary becauase of everything is going up.

Bagan is better off. There are so many ancient Pagodas in Bagan. Nevertheless, also Mandalay and Sagaing.

welcome to Myanmar.....

A license tour guide will cost about US$ 25/ day + His expenses.

Is that US$ 390/ person or for the whole car ?

Then you'll need at least 5 days for the trip you mentioned.

If it is a car + a license guide, go ahead. But make sure everything is alright as the price is too cheap.

390 us is pretty cheap. Please check whether by a private taxi or bus transport they provide.

The actual amount of guide + taxi must be over 500 in usd for 5 days.

Hi Kkym,

USD390 is per person - there are 6 person travelling for 8 days for the above location - price only covers guide, entrance fee & transportation only.. seems reasonable?

Are the places recommended for 1st timers?

Thanks again...
