Last January, I supposed to spend quality time in Myanmar. I bought return flight ticket to Yangon, expected to visit the relic place of Bagan. Unfortunately, for the third time I cancelled by holiday due to a few reasons. I started wishing to visit Myanmar since I saw pictures uploaded in Facebook by a friend, Bagan is truely amazing!
It was about the visa. Tourist visa consumes 5 working days to be completed, in case if there is no problem in between you, immigration and the embassy. I cant imagine right now what kind of issues commonly to fail visa application to Myanmar, but you may have to plan for it in advance. Then, i also made less study about Myanmar. Plus you may know how critical is the recent condition in Myanmar, either peace or having crisis.
Bagan, the main focus on my visit, is actually about 8 hours drive from the city of Yangon. What options you have to take you there. Is there any public transportation like bus and taxi? Maybe you can book a flight, which will take less 3 hours to reach there. I just had my beautiful days in Yogjakarta, then Cameron Highlands, so why not i make some savings as I have another important travel to Hanoi. I cant wait to see Halong Bay, another UNESCO heritage site.
