Riding a balloon over the 2,000 temples of Bagan, Myanmar has been on my bucket list since 2010, when my maiden voyage to the then-pariah country ended in near-death food poisoning.
A slow boat down the Irrawaddy River between the city of Mandalay and Bagan, which is famous for its 2,000 temples.
What if I told you the best islands in Southeast Asia were in Myanmar?
None of the trips I’m about to highlight take more than two weeks to complete.
Trust me: It’s worth the double—or, more likely, triple—connection.
I suspected I was going to get food poisoning in Burma from the moment I sat down for my first meal, but I was still on my feet after a week of successively more toxic-seeming food, so I assumed I was out of the woods.
All you need to get a Myanmar visa in Bangkok is a few documents, two passport-sized photos, a passport with six months remaining validity and about 900 Thai baht.
If you skip even a single step in the long charade of obtaining Myanmar kyats, you could end up broke or even penniless.
