Dear Judy,

We are a group of 4 pax, from 25 to 30 years old.

we are planning to visit Myanmar for 11 days.

From 26 jan 10.40AM arriving in yangon to 5 fev departing time 11.40AM

We would like to do=> Bagan + Inle + Kalaw + Mrauk + (if possible) Ngapali

Which itineary would you recommand?

Which transport should we used to go from a place to another?

I have send Enquiry to yangon and bagan air to get some info, but never get any reply...

Do you know the flight schedule, and also the cost?

We have a Budget of 1000 $ us/ pax all included (hotel + transport+ food)

We are not looking for a guide, but advices on hotel and transport.

Can you do the booking for us?

Thanks a lot in advance.


I am David Sing from Design Travel. We can do the hotel and domestic airline bookings for you.

Please provide us with your time and dates of arrival and departure to Bagan, Inle, Kalaw and Mrauk + Ngapali and I will give you the quotation.

Your budget of US$1,000/pax will not be sufficient for so many places as domestic airfares are around US$150. Accommodation will be 3-star hotel with your budget.

Let me know the exact dates of your travel for each city/town so that I can get the flight times fo you. Travel by bus, boat or train from Yangon to Bagan takes many hours compared to air travel and so the itinerary depends more on you than on me.

There are some examples of costs involved in tour to Myanmar. Pl goto and goto 'BLOGS". Proper planning by you is important and once you have decided on the dates of travel, please do NOT keep changing your minds as it is very difficult to do any booking for your group since many towns/cities are involved in your visit and much administrative work is needed to do the booking of airlines and hotels.

Myanmar travel and tours are much more complex and expensive than those to Thailand and so, proper planning and costing are required. The demand for hotels nowadays is extremely high and an increase in tourism and business tourism has shot upwards and so hotels are in short supply since not many were built during the past years when most of the Western tourists were French and some Europeans.

I thank you for your understanding on my advice to get a proper plannning of the dates and times of arrival and departure by yourself first and then I will review and let you know whether it is practical.
