Hi everyone,

First post here in Travelpunk. I'm hopefully heading to Myanmar next month and was wondering if anyone had been there and had general advice.

On a more specific note, most of my time will be spent checking out the temples in Bagan. I have a few days there and have read that bicycles are the best way to get around. I've got the Lonely Planet guidebook -- any others that are useful, especially for Bagan?

Any help would be appreciated...

Oh, if you get bored, check out my travel web site at:

Seeya!
-- Mike

Thanks for the welcome!

That is definitely one of the things I enjoy about travel -- the people you meet (especially the fellow travelers) and the warmth they invariably greet you with.

Seeya!

Sure thing, Tui!

I'm really looking forward to this trip. Lonely Planet's guidebook covers the Temples of Bagan pretty good, so I should be fine using it to get around.

Hey, I encourage you to take that trip to Thailand. I went there two years ago and it was great. Hot, of course. Felt like you needed a shower within an hour of leaving the hotel...but a really neat place. I'm actually flying through Bangkok to get there, and will have to spend at least one night there. I imagine I won't have much time to hang out there, though...
