    I went to Burma for a month in January of this year. We traveled independently and pretty much stuck with the regular tourist route- Rangoon, Golden Rock, Inle Lake, Bagan and Mandalay. If you want any information you can email me at jazzyfille@sbcglobal.net almost 9 years ago

    We were there in January too. Getting off the standard tourist route isn't so easy since that is where most of the infrastructure is, however if you want to try something a little different and head to Mrauk U and Ngapali on the West Coast ... very much like Asia 30 years ago - go before it all changes!)

    About getting a visa to enter the country, Bangkok seems like a good place.
    If you go to the street of the Myanmar embassy in bangkok, in the morning you will see a very long line of people: application hours are from 09:00 am to 12:00 pm (noon).
    But in the same street, walk further and you'll come accross travel agents, and even a copy shop, that can do the process for you.
    We just did it, cost us 3600 baht in total for 2 people. You need white-background ID pictures. if you dont have them, they can take a picture for you on the spot. we went to a shop that advertises "photo & copy" more than the myanmar visa, but it seems to be a serious business. we should get it in 48 hours, normal processing time (express is 24 hours).
    will come back here to report.

    I took some free advice from Jackson in Myanmar Tours ( http://www.myanmartours.asia) and did a trip by my self to big 5: Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay, Inle Lake and Ngapali beach.
    You can try some tour or customize your tour. It will be better to have a tour guide. almost 9 years ago
