In and around Yangon for one weekend
When you only have one weekend in Burma, it is best to stay in Yangon or Rangoon. An insane run on the most important sights of the land would be strenuous, costly and would lead to the pages disappearing from the site listing rather than being appreciated. Stay in the Yangon area and let the remainder for another while.
In many ways, Yangon is what used to be Southeast Asia, making it a great place to go. You can take a Rangoon River boating trip, take a scenic Circle Rail trip, walk the roads of Chinatown, explore ancient architectural styles of ancient colonies and generally enjoy the city.

Suggestions for Yangon and surroundings: Visit the city centre, the Sule Pagoda, Chinatown and the old Strand Road.

4th day: Drive eastwards to Bago and the Golden Rock. At 08:00 take the 8:00 a. m. trains to Bago, where you can visit the Bago Star Hotel on Kyaikpun Pagoda Road to hire a bike. A southerly tour from Bago leads you to the "base camp" at the bottom of Kyaiktiyo or the Golden Rock.
One night's lodging allows you to enjoy both sunsets and early mornings on the rocks, but make sure you make reservations in advance as your accommodations are restricted. Sundown at the Golden Rock.

Please have a look at our proposals for accomodation. Stage 6: You can return either in the sixth or seventh days afternoons, according to your flight schedule.
Even if it doesn't look far on the card, the street is terrible and the buses may need a modification in Pathein, so ask before! Myanmar is suitable for a quick journey with regular flight or a longer, slow journey where you don't get off the ground. However, Burma is a good place to go. Also Sabah and Sarawak are relatively easily accessible.
