Yangon Location - Yangon (Rangoon) Message Board
I' ve never been to Myanmar. In search of a longer stop in Yangon and a trip through Bagan. 69 both, fitte and inexpensive travelers. Very thankful for all other hints for a healthful life with a low price. Maybe I can't help you with your selection (I was at the Yankin which was a good idea), but if you have three week time, you probably wouldn't want to miss Mandalay and Inle Lake, the most popular places in Myanmar besides Bagan.....?
Yangon has some places of interest, but not much to really remain there as a long term holiday. A while ago I also went to Bagan, but found that 2-3 working nights were enough. As we are used to in Thailand, I anticipate that our flights to and from and within Myanmar will undermine our budgets.
In addition to the sights, we are long-term travelers who hope to be able to appreciate the speed and unique nature of our cultures more than the sights. Burma is only now beginning on the road to "modernity" and we had hoped to catch it in Yangon. We have to return to Yangon for another week to Chiang Mai before we go home.
We' ve not been to Laos yet, which must be put on ice for the time being. Have you found anything in Yangon that you liked? My missus and I will fly to YGN on January 5, 2015 and still will not decide on the hotel between Central, Asia Plaza, Yuzana and Orchid City.
