Once again flew into one of my favorite Burmese cites, and next day headed to Inle Lake.The mini bus driver told us 6 hours ( after spending an hour driving around Mandalay picking up others) but took us 8. Dropped us off at the edge of Nyaunhshwe. If your looking for a back packer scene in Burma, this is the city that offers it all, Happy hours and Banana pancakes.
The lake is very impressive but also VERY touristy. 2 days was plenty (one full day on the lake)
2 night bus's to Mrauk U with a day stop in Magwe, Lovely old temples so unlike Bagan. After an afternoon visiting various temples/Pagodas awoke early the next day and spent a day on the Laymro river visiting a few Chin Villages
Off early the next morning for a quick 2 1/2 hour fast boat to Sittwe, located on the Andaman sea. Great town and great seafood market. Next morning off by plane to Yangon
