Tips for traveling in Myanmar (Burma)
- Try to book your accommodation at least a day in advance (hotels can get booked because of too much tourists)
- If you need to use a taxi, group together with other travellers
- Try to avoid the admission fee cities (sometimes using the rare public transport also helps)
- You don’t need to see every pagoda. There’s thousands in Bagan!
- All buses are uncomfortable so book the cheapest one.
