Housing Budget $10 or less in Myanmar - Myanmar Forum
I know from my research that shelter in Myanmar is a little more expensive. Had I wondered if anyone could tell me the name of inns or Hotels having a twin (2 people) for around $10 or under in Yangon, Kinpun, Bagan, Inle Lake/Nyaungshwe and Mandalay.
We want the cheapest one! The number of Myanmar visitors has risen sharply in recent month and the rooms are inaccessible. We' ll be in Myanmar from 7 February 2013 - 28 February 2013, do you think it is advisable to make an appointment in advanced?
At the end of November we were in Myanmar..... we contacted the hotel before we came so we didn't spend any of our lodging at all. In Yangon it costs $50 per person per day, Inle Lake $60, Bagan $85 and Mandalay $35. The Yangon and Mandalay were very simple rooms with bath and Bagan and Inle Lake were much better accommodations.
Myanmar has many more visitors and the price is much higher than in other Asiatic states. Usually you have to cover about 25 - 35 US$ / overnight for guesthouses in Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan and Inle See, as well as tourist attractions. When you are ready to spend the nights in the guesthouse, you do not need to make an appointment in advanced and it would be good to find a suitable accommodation two nights before your departure.
There is no need to make a reservation - especially as you are not in high season - but call a few nights in advanced if you want the lowest tariff. It is unlikely that Myanmar celebrates CNY or Lunar New Year, but there will be thousands of other Taiwanese, Chinese and Vietnamese holidaymakers on holiday during this year.
It is not really possible to find these rates for a 2 person twin room at this rate. $30-70 for a doubler this year. Unfortunately, they are very quick-witted when you try to bargain with them about pricing. We were still able to find a $15-20 twin room with common or en-suite bathroom.
No more than $30 was needed in the main locations (Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan, Inle Lake, Chaungtha Beach).
